Stampede for Sequins


It’s the height of summer here in the Island and impossible to think about fall in between bites of strawberry shortcake and butter tarts (I’ve been conducting a month-long taste test).

Occasionally, though, my thoughts do turn to shoes, which are much less likely to induce summer fashion claustrophobia than, say, a belted coat.

However, I didn’t expect to be thinking about boots, which fall on the too-hot end of the summer fashion spectrum.

And I certainly didn’t expect to be thinking about cowgirl boots, as I am over that boot-and-floaty-dress LA thang that happened a couple of years back.

But these *sequined* Frye boots at Bergdorfs have caught my fancy. Roped it right in, on the heels of the Calgary Stampede.

I like the unusual color and the pretty-but-tough sequins for day. Maybe I’ll even give jeans a second chance this fall . . .

I like them too, although I'm not really thinking too much of cowgirl boots...more like studded boots.

I can see how the beach and seashells and ocean mist might have inspired these boots. I see all of those summery elements in this fall boot.

Intriguing....

*need these*. Actually, I'm thinking booties, since I already have the Frye Campus boots. But I'm tempted, I won't lie!

I like how different these boots look. They look less cowboy like with the sequins. I'm sure they'd look amazing with some dark denim!

I found your blog randomly and thought your profile is amusing. What does it mean to be TOO intellectual? :]

Love these boots! They are fun and different; I can definitely see them with dark skinny jeans on a chilly fall day.
