Topshop arson flame boots

Wait.  Is… that… petrol???

Topshop arson flame boots

At bloody long last petrol is back.

New York has (and still is) under a big shortage in some areas – mine included.  I’ve witnessed long queues of a good 40 cars or more stretching down the road with police manning the station to avoid anyone jumping the queue.  There’s been people waiting HOURS to fill up sometimes just wanting to be first when the stations open.  Crazy.

Never thought I’d experience this but you don’t know what you’ve got till it’s gone.  Thankfully we stumbled on a station with NO QUEUE recently and they were open!   I thought it was a mirage.

I’m in one of my fave vintage bomber jackets, old jeans and the usual Topshop boots.  The tooled bag is one of those finds from this gem Texas spot.

Try this look:

    Agreed! You never know what you have until it is gone..or at least in shortage.
    I heard a NY-er on the radio sound almost astonished that he could see stars in NY. I never really thought about it that way…..so I think in some respects there have been a bit of light in all of the darkness(no pun intended).
    I hope all is going well.. Cheers.

    Great jacket! Reading this post reminded me of a couple of years ago there was a fuel shortage here in NC, it was crazy.

    I was just in the city and there were lines that looked like cars parked on the side of the road. It is absolutely terrible! I hope you were able to secure enough to last.

    Do you have your normal size in these shoes?
    I heard that they run small to size?

Can we talk about how hard it is to find the shoe you want in your size? I'm a UK 8/US 10/ EU 41 so it's borderline. Is it hard for you? (Yes I caved on these).
