I got a pair of Chelsea boots this autumn too. I really love them! I wasn’t sure I could pull them off but now I see them as (hold on to your lunch, here comes a ridiculous fashion phrase) as a “staple” in my lifetime wardrobe. Similar to Vans slip ons and lace ups.
What’s with the fucking pillars?! My employer, a venerable 76 years old Canadian Crown Corporation, decided that it needs a brand. Of course, how can you function without a brand? Our brand is based on “five pillars” – integrity, excellence, openness, something something that for the life of me I can’t remember. Now, wardrobe pillars? IMO, it’s architectural elements abuse – specially if it involves such gems as a handbag with a chain (why?) or a leather skirt.
You can tell that I just broadcast lack of awareness of fashion trends.
You both have amazing hair!
Didn’t Chelsea boots used to be called Beatle boots? I am with your sister on the leather skirts, i have several non chic ones and I am sticking with them.
By non chic, I mean they fit me and dont look like a towel.
My view of the over-the -knee boots is biased; I’m old enough to remember their first (?) time around in the seventies. They were mad from rather horrible shiny vinyl and not available in Poland. One of my friends from the University had them and I was very envious. You needed a contraption similar to garters so they would stay up. Later on I found out that the uniform of the hookers on Rue St. Denis in Paris at that time was over the knee boots, a mini skirt (some went sans mini skirt), a tank top and, since it was November, a fur coat.
“standout pieces that confirm your awareness of autumn’s trends”————–> stuff you won’t touch in a year because you realise you’re a fashion victim and have been had. Or, sadder still, you don’t realise you’re a fashion victim and have been had.
I’m always a little startled by how soft your voice actually sounds, Sister. Though of course that doesn’t matter if one is listening to what you say.
