Without words I tell you. Any words. Wordless.
I ventured out on a little jaunt yesterday down Chapel St, Prahran. I was on the hunt for my soy mocha when lo and behold, what do I see to my left but a Tony Bianco store!
Well, who am I to walk past a Tony Bianco store! No one! That’s who! So in I went excitement mounting. I must admit, I was on a little mission. I have had in my mind for a while now that I must own a pair of over the knee black boots! I LOVE boots! I have many pairs but not an over the knee pair. Inspired by a recent image of Christine Centenera (see below) wearing some and convinced I would look similar, I marched up to the boot section and started cruising for my perfect pair.
The first pair I tried on were called “Jonson” (see below). I couldn’t decide if they fitted properly or not. They didn’t sit well so I’m thinking probably not. There was an un-stitched section to the side of the boot which seemed to sit out and interrupt my legs attempt at long, lean lines. They also had a strap around the back which barely did up. I felt like I had thunder thighs. Not a winner. No chicken dinner. The one good thing about the Jonson was that they were on SALE and still are. Don’t ever say I don’t hook a sister up!
Next was an open toe situation. This was one was called “Alicia“. Not my first choice as frankly my toes are prone to getting cold and I like to wear socks. Yes that’s right. Under my sexy boots you will often find a pair of Lorna Jane socks. Judge me not. My toes are warm, my feet are functioning, I am happy. Anyway, the open toe situation did not last long as neither myself or my friend could reef up the zip to actually fit my leg. Again, my legs were in the way. Probably noticing the distraught look on my face as a second pair of boots failed to fit my calf, the sales assistant assured me it was a “very slim fit”. That was helpful. I rallied.
It was then that the sales assistant actually proved her usefulness and bought me the holy grail. The Jada. Oooh aaahhh. Glen McGraaattthhhh. We were onto something! The heel has height and will take me from dwarf to modelesque proportions. The zip actually does up and there is a split at the back which is actually meant to be there and isn’t because my leg got in the way! I was delighted! The only part I was less delighted about was the price. They were new to store so cost $319.95. The sales assistant kindly wrote down the price, size and style for me. I was off armed to source these elsewhere at a cheaper price but alas I haven’t found them as yet. The shopper in me refuses to give up! Watch this space for a leg draped in Jada finery in the future!
