This is the new pair of boots that I've been lusting over (Blokey has given me the green light to buy a pair). The Born Gilmore:
This is what I'll be wearing today to teach about American foreign policy. I had a busy and productive weekend, which included going to a fun clothing swap with Jesse.anne.o over in Crown Heights. I got this shirt, a couple jackets, and a new purse (from Jesse's stash). And some of my less worn clothes found new homes.
The leather looks kind of shiny, but the soles are rubber, and I have a decent history of fitting into Born boots. They're pricey ($255), but I had to break up with the $300 Charles David Regiment after reading the fine print, and seeing that they had artificial soles. Come one, Italian made shoes! If Napoleon would not traipse around Europe in man made soles, and I won't either.
The thing about these Borns is that Zappos sells this beautiful color only. I can get them cheaper on Nordstrom's site, but there's only a funkier, distressed darker brown and black. Although comments suggests that it's a very dark brown, which interests me. They are 35% off on the Nordy's site, so I'm going to have a make a decision soon between color and price.
Hope everyone had a lovely weekend. I'm off to the train!
