In looking at everyone’s posts for my amazingly popular boots theme back in September, I ended up perusing a lot of boot Web sites. In the process, I saw at least a dozen pairs that I really would have liked to own, but this style from Demonia stuck out. I resisted buying them until October, which I think demonstrates remarkable self-control. I ordered these from Sinister Soles because they had the best price, and I must say their service was fabulous. They offered free shipping with any purchase over $100, and the boots (plus another pair of heels to get me to the $100 mark) arrived in only TWO days.
I’ve had bad experiences buying boots online. Even if they are true to size and actually fit in the foot, they tend to be too wide around the calf for my slim legs. I think I held my breath from the time I ordered these until they arrived, and was SO relieved to find these are a perfect fit from top to bottom. The only thing I don’t like is that little skull and crossbone guy on the bow. I’m not into skulls of any kind, and this one isn’t even cool looking (he actually looks like he’s laughing). He’s firmly riveted on, so I’m still trying to think of a way to get rid of him without destroying the bows.
I wasn’t sure how to style these for work, so I pulled out a burgundy velveteen blazer from Wet Seal and a fit and flare skirt, plus my black heart pendant for added Victorian romance. This combination resulted in several compliments from coworkers, and I felt pretty cute all day.
