I LOVE metallic shoes.
I wore these boots a while back shortly after getting them. To me they are both old and new school rock chick. I posted the lovely Martin Jerez wearing his gold Dior ones here. Some of you saw me wearing metallic silver retro brogues here in the summer so it was only a matter of time before I’d transition to a boot.
So I’m covered. For now….

    Karen, I love all these winter scene pics. I haven’t checked your blog in a few days so I’m just catching up now. I made one of the snow scene pics my desktop backgroud-your BF is a great photographer! Speaking of which, there have been ads in the Hearst fashion mags about looking for a next talented photographer in their bi-ennial competition (IDK if you have seen them-maybe you have) but I immediately thought of your BF. The website to enter is http://www.hearst8x10.com and the deadline is 5/31/10. Best of luck if he enters!! 🙂
