The Bare Necessities

Credit cards have the tendency to transport you to a magical far-off land where debt is a mythical beast restrained if only for a moment, where beautiful things can be had at the flick of a wrist, at a simple click of the mouse with no immediate repercussions.

I may have to subsist on Cup O'Noodles and boxed wine till the next pay cycle but, damnit, I'll look good from the ankle-down doing it.  I present to you my collective shoe purchases documented ever so diligently on this and next month's credit card statements:  

Free People lace-up boots.  I wear these suckers everywhere, and even though they give me E.T. feet (formed by the impressions of the laces) and in the land of Uggs where I reside, some unkind snickers.. I LOVE THEM.  They are supremely comfortable and make my legs look quite shapely.

The doc martens were the luckiest bargain purchase, as my wonderfully keen boyfriend so eagerly pointed them out at the local American Vintage amongst a sea of men's military boots priced at $20.  "But they look so big, they're definitely not my size," me thinks.  But once applied they melded perfectly to my feet.  Like a punky Cinderella I had found my glass slipper.  "Who the hell gets rid of their docs?", the bf says.   I wholeheartedly agreed, these babies are keepers for life.

Aww the puckles! or the punk buckles.. as the ever so witty Andi Belle of the blog hungry eyes so cleverly coined.  The multi-strap Jeffrey Campbell Potion are the poor man's answer to the coveted Chloe Sevigny's I've been drooling over for ages.

The gorgeous metallic plum wine Camilla Skovgaard boots satisfy my need for color and puckles in a very cool way.  Priced at 75% off, they were a steal.
