Ankle Fringe.



Despite their sheer ridiculousness and ubiquitous presence on French bloggers, I was inexplicably drawn to these boots. My boyfriend got them for me for my birthday but they had to be sent back and exchanged for a different size, so I only just had my grubby little hands on them on Monday.



I never want to be parted from them. They make such a weird noise when I walk (I made a video to illustrate this fact, but I walk, apparently, very fast and it ended up pointless) and fill me with inane happiness. The fringe on one of them came a little crimped, but I don't really mind. It's kind of like a cowlick on my boots! On the other hand, I've had an awful lot of stare-downs on campus. This is only compounded by the fact that I am, for once, alone on campus! John (boyfriend, he has a name!) is in graduate school now and only has night classes, and everyone else I knew already graduated or is doing the same as he! So I am all by me onesies, traipsing across campus. Ah well, my inner (and outer) not-so-lonely-only child doesn't mind too much, most of the time.

  4. I agree with the clothes horse. Who would have thought, yet you rock them so effortlessly. I am deeply deeply envious. I've been wanting moccasin booties for 2 summers, but Minnetonka just doesn't ship to finland and i haven't won any on ebay. But seeing you wear these makes me more determined. You look lovely. Belated Happy Birthday and New School Year!

  11. "Their sheer ridiculousness and ubiquitous presence on French bloggers, I was inexplicably drawn to these boots."

    Possibly the best (most interesting) sentence I've come across in a long time.

  12. I just bought a pair of similar Minnetonka boots. I know what noise you're talking about!
    I get a lot of comments, but I am too in love to care.
