anatomy of a boot
Wishing everyone a wonderful festive season
In Australia the few days after Christmas in the retail industry only means one thing: sale
The greatest bargains in this period are from the premier designers such as Chanel, Chloe and Burberry etc. Their products can take you much further than some of the more shabby designers for just a hundred or more dollars extra. Even though the premier designers are a hundred times more consistent in delivering quality products in aesthetics and workmanship that doesn’t mean you have to give up looking for the other designer’s products, I actually found a fantastic pair of peridot green boots by Diana Ferrari.
With the quality aspect sorted out, I’d like to point out that the actual product you decide to buy determine’s its worth too. I personally think I’m better off buying lasting coats, shoes, hats, gloves, glasses and bags rather than the blouse I simply cannot live without at the moment.
Anyway… sorry for going off track a bit here. I just wanted to write something about the sales since it’s made quite a big deal out of itself
A boot (noun) is defined as a covering of leather, rubber, or the like, for the foot and all or part of the leg (bought to you from dictionary.com). More specifically like many objects a boot has many of its own characteristics, variations occur in its length, fabric, fitting, stitching, embellishments, heel and colour. A subtle change in one or more of these characteristics change the way a boot matches the wearer’s age, clothing, use and attitude.
Some styles do carry an air of youth or maturity to them by a certain extent so just be careful with your styling. Other than that, in my opinion, the style of the boot and age are no longer strongly correlated, if you know how to work the outfit with the boot, go for it. In general, knee length boots are traditionally seen as a more mature style and suede boots are traditionally burdened with the image of athleticism (some painful generalisations here)
