Hello, Lover

The Herald fell hard for this Biviel boot. It has it all, the Italian leather, an elusive brand, and that way about it that makes people think “she must have gotten those in Europe.” It is a European boot, but you can buy it in the US of A. Macy’s Herald Square to be more exact, where it comes in this taupe and "testa di moro." Oh, baby, I love how you say "dark brown." This rocker mid-calf with the wing-tip toe runs $245.

Pricey, yes, but this love lasts; the quality is comparable to a boot two times its price. Biviel looks slightly western, slightly ’70’s, and just like something that cute foreign exchange student would wear every day. You know, the one you had a huge crush on in high school. He was so cool.

The Herald met Biviel while searching for Ivanka nudes (it’s not what you think; see last Friday’s entry). Obviously there aren’t many nudes available for winter. Steven by Steve Madden has “Devlin,” a beige patent pump for $89.95. And Macy’s has some nudes on the sales racks; look for the Calvin Klein, the Enzo Angolioni, and the Anne Klein. All run from $62-$70. But none are exactly like what Ivanka wore. Oh, well, we'll wait for the spring collections. Besides, Ivanka and her blonde perfection are so last Friday.
