Fall. The most wonderful time of the year. Boots and tights! Tights and boots! Summer was just atrocious this year. Too hot and too humid for my liking so I'm over the moon to finally have cooler temperatures. One big reason why is I finally got to wear the boots featured in the post that I bought in July.
I had a visitor this weekend - my friend S from Halifax! We did Toronto Broadway style. Or we would have if I didn't like to be in bed by 9pm. We went to the Art Gallery and the pottery museum and did some shopping in Yorkville. That's where I bought this dress.
Tights: who knows
Boots: Fluevog Libby Smith (swoon)
Yes, I have these boots in grey and green but these are SO SHINY! And the buttons are BLUE! Heather at the Queen St store set a pair aside for me when they came in. Isn't that sweet? (and possibly kinda expensive.)
So I got this dress at Benetton. It comes in about 6 colours but I went with plain grey. When I was in high school my friends and I used to drive to the mall in Kitchener to go to Benetton. It was the bomb and I couldn't really afford much there. Everyone in high school had their rugby shirt and it was the style to bleach everything - even $100 brand new shirts.
I probably should have bought this in another colour too.
Look at my shiny boots! So shiny!
In other news, I found these uber vintage Fluevog boots at a store in my neighbourhood. Alas they were a size 6 so too small for me. I showed the picture to Kaley, who works in the Fluevog store and she went and bought them for herself on the weekend. Lucky ducky!
I would have killed for these boots in the 80s. I bet Amber had a pair.
