Last weekend all hail broke loose in my city. Literally. Thunder, lightning, rain, and quail-egg-sized hail that put holes in my canvas gazebo roof, dang it. Bloody hail. I’d rather have spent the money I just spent on my gazebo on shoes, of course.
Oh well. The bright side of it all was temperatures cool enough for a sliver of time to wear boots one last day before full-on summer heat hits. And boots I wore, but not just any boots—the Burberry fall/winter 2010 boots I scored for practically pennies in fashion terms. Yeah, those boots. Leather up to my neck, absolute dominatrix-like deliciousness. Paired with a sensational white Foley + Corinna City Tote in supple leather.
You’ve seen this dress before, by the way, if you’re a long-time G&G reader. It’s my favorite LBD. I’ve worn it to work, and with another pair of OTK boots as well. Proof that every girl needs at least one trusty little black dress.
And the bag. I’m not done talking about it! It’s a tote, a cross-body bag, and an oversized clutch all in one. I’m totally crushing on the white (which is kind of anti-Vahni), but curiously, it makes a powerful statement, don’t you think? Next week I’ll feature it with a more casual ensemble and close-ups.
PS: While proofing this post prior to publication, I showed it to Hubby. I had asked for his seal of approval before selecting the bag and scooping these new pink D&G sunnies, so I wanted him to see this look. (He’s got great taste, non?)
He said in his Aussie accent, “You look badahss,” to which I replied, “I am badahss“—then accidentally disclosed that these are new boots—he had not yet detected that fact. Maybe it’s time for me to go back to the Badahss School of Stealth Shopping.
