I was watching the news, and there was a teaser regarding a woman who was now able to fit into her boots. It then showed her prancing about wearing her knee-high boots. I thought perhaps there was a cream that made pulling on your boots, easier. Nope…not so easy. They were discussing liposuction for calves. Seriously, people are having lipo done on their calves to fit into boots. I am Not kidding here.
I’m guessing lipo for your calves would be upwards of $1000, most likely much more. So this woman, and apparently, many more, as it is now a “trend” (really?), would pay thousands of dollars having their calves surgically altered, to fit into a $100-$200 pair of boots. Here’s as tip, buy new, wide-calf boots, and save thousands of dollars! Sheesh!
I have a pair of black, patent-leather high heel boots, which happen to be fabulous. They are pull-on boots, and while easy to pull on, after a long day, or night, they are difficult to pull off. But I do it. Why? Because, they are fabulous, comfortable and I love them. I was at an industry event and a colleague said, “Terry, I bet when you wear those boots, you basically get whatever you want?”. Correct, I replied, but I basically get what I want anyway….boots or not. And I was reminded of that this morning. 🙂
From September through May, boots are basically part of my look, each and every day. I love Uggs with leggings for casual, or leggings with riding boots. For work or “play” I love skirts or dresses with high heel boots. I guess one could say it’s my “uniform”. I have to say I had so much fun putting together this blog and have gotten lots of inspiration myself. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did putting it together.

Song of the Day: These boots are made for walking, by Nancy Sinatra. Dedicated to my friend, Peggy, who always delights me with her dancing when this song comes on!
These boots are made for walking
And that’s just what they’ll do
One of these days these boots
Are gonna walk all over you
Are you ready, boots?
Have a happy Wednesday. <3
