The boot is an essential part of the winter wardrobe. Knowing this, designers and stores produce, present and then sell thousands of boots every year. I find this mildly ludicrous. Why? So few of these thousands of boots for sale are actually wearable. The rest are dated, ugly, uncomfortable, unflattering, cheap looking and/or without merit. This makes for a situation of compromise and a sea of not fabulous boots on the streets.
It takes a good eye, sharp taste and time to find the perfect boot. For my clients and myself, I generally just go to Zappos and comb through the endless pages for the right boot, and that is where I found this Mia Boot. There I was, strolling about, and I saw this perfect, fabulous, industrial low boot. I have wanted this boot for 17 years. To even find a half-cool low boot is like finding Ryan Renolds in your local pastry shop. I was beyond excited. I know there are those out there not into the industrial vibe, but I have stomp-around-rocker in my blood.
I will be paring these with elegant structured shorts and my nude silk tank as well as my skinny jeans and a forest green blouse. I am not against pairing it with a dress either, nineties style. The key is to balance the boots with complimentary colors and styles with clean lines and simple details or textures.
