Bidder’s Remorse

While chaperoning last weekend I was surprisingly impressed by my students’ attire. I don’t know if it’s where I work or just teenagers in general, but all they wear to school are sweats. I don’t mean jeans and a sweatshirt, I mean leggings and a t-shirt, pajama pants –  they look halfway to homeless.

The young men on our trip looked very nice but let’s be honest, men just wear a suit and they’re done. The girls put together some pretty fabulous and sophisticated outfits that I took note of.  Two girls in particular were wearing these Steve Madden boots in black:


The boots really look a lot better in person, especially after they’re been broken in a bit.  I scoured the internet for them and finally stumbled upon a gently used pair (in my size!!) on eBay. And I bid. And I lost. The boots are from last season so they are gone for good.

So I looked and looked some more and found these from Naturalizer:

What do you think? I like the hardware on these but I’m not crazy about the bottoms or the slightly pebbled look to the leather.  I should also point out that grandmas wear Naturalizer. Now I love my grandmas, but we don’t share shoes. Thoughts?

  1. I’m no Grandma! Unless there is something you’re not telling me. I’ve been living in these boots all winter. We need to see each other more often.
