Because these little delights came in the mail this morning:
I had tried on a pair in the brown colour when we were in Vancouver last October, but ultimately went with the F Boot Bobbie (also most excellent and stylin’ in their own way). These are the Vera Ellen boots, These would be very cute with tights and a skirt. The colour is as in the website photo, a beautiful blue-toned plum. Gorg.
The box came wrapped in bright blue paper with Fluevog stickers on either end. I should have taken a photo, but I was too busy ripping into it. I put them on and even with my foot that was massacred from roller derby practice last night (well, more like the shite skates I was using), they feel gloriously wonderful.
What particularly cracks me up is that Vera Ellen’s waist was about the size of my left thigh. At least I can have -something- in common with her, now! 🙂
