These Boots Are Made For Walking or Coveting

I have been on the lookout for a nice pair of mid calf boots for a while now.  I know what I want, but I am having a hard time finding it.  I want a bit of a heel, not too much, in a chunky heel.  I want them either to be black or brown or oxblood.  I want them to be leather, and the sole should be a nice rubber.  I want them to fit nicely and look good.  What I really want are a pair of Fluvogs with a stretched calf.

I think I want to be a Bond Girl. Can I afford to be a Bond Girl? Can I justify it?  I don’t know.  I have saved up money to go to Blogher and I still haven’t bought my conference ticket. I am still having a hard time justifying it.  I think partially because I am a parent and I have a hard time justifying anything for myself.  Plus Anthony doesn’t buy much in the way of stuff for him self.  How can I spend 350 on a pair of boots if I am even entertaining going to New York this summer for a blogging conference? *1

For the blogher conference I guess the reason I am having a hard time is not because of the conference ticket.  It is the plane ticket and the accommodation.  I really want to go, but it also means that Anthony will be by himself with the kids and need to take a day or two off, unless we hire a babysitter.

So boots, where are we walking?

*1 I would be using my beer and popcorn money.  I have no paying job at the moment.  I really need people to comment and tweet my sticky post so I can even consider getting myself some Fluvogs and feel good about going to NY. Yes, this is me begging for comments.

  • Ah boots. I’ve been looking for a pair of boots for at least 10 years. I can never find a pair that I really like or that are comfortable for a long time or will zip up my leg without squeezing the life out of it. A hundred years ago when we had money (thanks so much recession) I had a pair of Fluevogs. They’re such great shoes. I’m not in a situation where I could afford both Fluevogs and the conference (I haven’t given up hope for the conference yet) but if you can swing it there’s no doubt that you’ll enjoy the boots. For the price I think you should buy them only if you really love them.

    PS. I commented and tweeted the other post already. Good luck.
