Red Stripe and Eternal Love

Friday, October 9, 2015 7:35 AM

Good Friday Morning!  So, I have had these boots for six maybe seven years.  I have worn them so many different ways, so many times, I love them!  A few years back they were looking really worn, the soles were getting holes, the leather was wearing off the heels, and basically they had seen their day.  I contemplated breaking up with them all together, but I found I just could not. I started pairing them with longer flared pants so you could not see the wear and tear, and eventually they were spending more time in the back of my closet among the abyss of older and more seasonal shoes.  I purchased other boots in hopes of replacing the love we once had, but nothing compared, nothing even came close.  So at the tail end of the Summer, when I began thinking of fun Fall outfits, I found myself incorporating these boots back into the rotation.  I knew something had to give, they couldn't go on the way they have been, so I decided to bring them to the cobbler (who even knew cobblers were still in business).  For $50 they got new leather wrapped heels and were resoled and thus our love affair has been rekindled!

Do you have anything you can't live without?

Hope you all have an amazing Holiday Weekend!
