Bad Day, Good Shoes

When a girl is having a terrible, no good, very bad day, she goes to look at shoes. That's how I found these black alice + olivia ankle boots, size 9, at Payless on 34th Street. They're not free, like Farren's, but for $17 they're almost free. I'm taking bets that these are the last pair for sale in the world. What the heck, I'm in a dramatic mood.

And then I spotted the Patricia Field black platform, over-the-knee pirate boots. Definitely there are two size 9's left in store, and they're on sale for $47 (or $49?). And they are sold out online. And they are freaking hot on a girl's leg, and the fit is surprisingly sexy. There are virtually no baggy areas; instead they fit snug almost everywhere.

These boots go on forever. You will be very tall and pirate-like in these boots.














Tomorrow I'll post the new Abaete's, etc. Thanks to a keen-eyed tipster I was alerted to their presence on the website today, so I ran down to 34th Street to see if they are in store. Yes, they are in store. So are new Lela Rose's and new alice + olivia's. There's good news, and bad news, and then some really good news. But on the whole, Payless designer collections for spring are really killing it. Impressed.

Oh those over the knee boots are hot! Wish I could lay my hands on a pair of those!

Farren said...

I hope you got those pirate boots! They look amazing on you. =) And I have to agree. For $17 they are practically free.

Do you know if the sandals posted up for the designer collections on Payless are just some of the ones becuase I know they aren't goign to only come out with 1 or 2 for each collection, right? More have got to be coming out soon,e h?

Yes! Shoes always, always make me feel better.
I wish Payless in Australia were that fashion forward

Sal said...

I can just HEAR the snide comments I'd get from Husband Mike for wearing those amazing boots ... but I'd stomach any criticism for those a+o's.

Captain Smack said...

I continue to be mystified by this bizarre female obsession with footware, but I fully support the wearing of black thigh-highs.

Yowza.

Captain Smack - brilliant summation of the heterosexual male opinion on feminine foot and leg wear.
Sal - if only they were 8's! but i think the new a+o's are going to make up for a lot.
bowerbird - that's tragic, payless needs to send these to Australia!
kira - there should still be some left in march.
farren - i know what you're thinking, where are the booties?? I'm praying they'll come in later, and yes, payless does stagger collections.
fash adddict - yup, totally hot!
lipstick - you need these, they'll look great on you.
pru - i couldn't think of "Yarr" last night, just "ahoy matey!" not the same.
