Meet the Booties

Gratuitous shoe porn; bring on the random Google searches

Work is getting hectic again but luckily these new Steve Maddens arrived during a busy day, and cheered me up no end.  I've been admiring lace-up ankle boots for a while (they seem prevalent of the feet of Williamsburg citizens); I tried searching eBay, I scoured the flea markets, all to no avail sizewise. It just so happened that a discount code landed in my inbox and these lace-ups were finally purchased; expect many future outfits featuring them.  They are also the fourth pair of boots I've purchased in NYC and my third pair of Steve Maddens; although I could quite happily keep buying boots, I wouldn't mind finding a pair of regular heels soon.  What's on your shoe wishlist?

Hope you're all having a great week, there's a mini-heatwave going on here at the moment!
