Fall is officially here, which means it is officially Boot Season. I know what you’re thinking. “A post about fashion? Here?” Believe me; I am with you on this one. I do not claim to be an expert on fashion and freely admit I know nothing about the subject–and I relish this ignorance. But I am observant. I know what I like and, most importantly, what I don’t like. That’s what we’re here to talk about today. Women’s footwear…Boots.
I admit, I was—and still am—a fan of certain types of women’s boots. Knee-high black leather boots are particularly nice, especially when paired with a short skirt (for some reason). This look more than adequately lends itself to visions of a top-secret female Russian spy—complete with heavy accent and a plan to forcefully seduce her unsuspecting male prey on the cold streets of Moscow. But from that foundation of Sexy Spy, a conglomeration of fur, fleece, fringe, glitter and suede has obliterated the fine balance between form and function–and more importantly, the notion of being seduced.
