When an innocent daydream becomes an obsession


I'm after a pair of boots.
..that I think I may have invented in my head.
but they're based on these four examples
Poesy's are the ideal, I might have to give her a call and ask her about them

why they're great
1 They don't conform to the "jeans tucked into boots" look that pisses my off so much.
2 They're "circa my Dad"
3 Suitably careless in a Charlotte Gainsbourg way
4 They shake up the shoe routine, non?
Of course, now I fear I have developed a mild obsession and will not be able to settle for any versions that I come across because they don't live up to my ideal.
Any budding boot designers our there?

Urban Outfitters have a pretty good selection. So does Shopbop.com. The latter is pricey however.

Thanks for the tip, P.
Unfortunatley they don't have any pairs on the UK Urban Outfitters, just the US one.

But any of you who are interested, here is the link (yes, long I know..)

i love these shoes! But its so hard finding boots in summer, so i pretty much have no boots for when i move to the UK for a year! hopefully i'll find some! good luck too!

I've seen many a vintage pair like those.... trek it to London for a day and Absolute Vintage will serve your needs well.... do it fast though as they clear out their boots selection for spring summer sandals soon!

this happens to me a lot with "imagined" clothes...
But yesterday was my lucky day because I found the skinny light jeans I had been looking for two years!! :D
So don't stop searching...

Just to make you jealous, I already have my ideal pair of boots but they’re falling apart and I fear they might be irreplaceable! I’ve just updated my blog, changed the format, updated my links etc. I’ve added a link to your blog too. I’ve got some new posts coming in the next few days too so take a look!

Those from Poesy are great! Strut down the vintage stores maybe?

I love boots tucked into skinnies, haha! But this is indeed a fresh new thang. Maybe I someday gonna try it out ;).

Isa said...

oh dear, I know that feeling and you won´t be able to rest untill your need is satisfied!
I´m absolutely into granny boots now and so all I can think about is doing thrift store shopping although all I should be thinking about is my studys.

good luck, you!

xx, isa

Oh dear this is exactly what I am like...dreaming up wonderful fabulous items of clothing/shoes/bags which in my head would definitely change my life and ensure I am absolutely the most stylish person everywhere I go, all because of this tiny detail, when really, it DOESN'T EXIST!!!

I feel your pain.

On a more practical note, I am quite sure you could find a pair very similar Mlle Poesy's at one of the vintage shops in London, be it the big ones like Rokit or the smaller ones in Brick Lane or Stoke Newington.

They are, by the way, very cool shoes.

cotton candy said...

im not a big fan of those boots because i know they'll make me look ultra stumpy and short. ><" lol. & omgod!! i know what you mean, creating ideal images of your perfect look but so hard to find!!

Miss Woo said...

I think Vintage is the way to go, suggested above. I especially like the slightly pointedness of Clemence shoes, sooo cool.

emsie said...

i do that too. i invent the perfect piece or outfit in my head but am unable to find it in real life.

those boots are lovely though; i particularly like the brown colour of kate moss's boots.

I think I like Kate Moss' the best
They are the first thing I have seen her in for ages that I like....
I hope you find some, you probably will once it is summer and you no longer dream of them!

Girlie said...
