What’s your go-to pair of shoes? You know, the ones you can wear for everything from work to drinks to a waffle date to after-work mechanical bull riding to an Armenian art reception? (Or whatever it is that you do with your time.) My answer is simple, it’s unequivocal, and it’s not even close: the perfect black booties.
The perfect black booties have long been my white whale, existing only in my mind’s eye but never actually discovered in the wild. The heel is too thin, the ankle comes up too high, they’re too tall, too short, too expensive, the toe is too pointy, the toe is too round, they’re uncomfortable…the list goes on and on. But now, dear friends, now the tides have turned for me. I have captured the white whale and my life’s purpose is fulfilled.
I’m not even kidding when I say I’ve been cruising around in these boots for almost two weeks straight (yeah, I cruise). They have the perfect height, perfect heel width, perfect amount of toe point, perfect details, and perfect comfort level…I’ve hit the jackpot. Oh yeah, and they’re only $99. For me, black booties are the ultimate wear-everyday shoe.
Sometimes I just gaze down at them lovingly.
Now that I’ve found my perfect shoe, I’m dying to know if other people have this obsession. What’s the pair of shoes you feel like goes with everything you own? (I don’t want to shame anyone’s choices here, but don’t say sneakers for working out. Just please…don’t.) Leave a comment so I can buy them all tee hee!
