Happy Sunday everyone! Hope your weekend was as great as mine. I had a fantastic mother and daughter day yesterday with my lovely Jasmine, and had some pretty nice loot from the mall. Jasmine got her first pair of Uggs and I took home my first pair of Hunter rain boots. We had a nice and healthy lunch at Au Bon Pain. Dessert was a gelato from Melt. Of course I couldn't take Jasmine out without going to Starbucks for a HUGE cup of refresher in Very Berry Hibiscus. Even in winter, these refreshers are so tasty and refreshing. :) We came home with dinner from Sichuan Gourmet and two bags of fresh vegetables from a newly opened Chinese grocer just downstairs from the restaurant. They just opened a week ago and I am so grateful of it. Now I can get green veggies without having to drive all the way to Boston.
Today's post is about the Stuart Weitzman 50/50 boots I got a few days ago thanks to the in store Bloomies sale alert tweet from Jean. I've been looking for a pair of simple black, no bells and whistles, high heel (3-3.5 inches), tall boots for many years. Petites would understand, if you have short legs like ours, finding tall boots that fit the leg (both height and calf size) is extremely difficult. After seeing how it looks on Jean I had to give it a try. I had reservations on whether these boots will work or not, because I actually have a much bigger calf than Jean does even though we are the same height. However due to the flexibility of the elastic material in the back, the boots actually fit me great and I'm ecstatic to find out that it's not too high (just below knee) and it's not too loose or too tight on the calf (no gap). It feels like second skin on. Buy in store, or online here.
