What I'm Wearing: Introducing...

This is a story about boots. About midway through November, I started thinking about them. I started thinking that maybe I should have a pair, because, you know. Boots come in handy sometimes.

Now, I've owned snow boots, and hiking boots, and even ski boots. But never (before last Wednesday, when they arrived) had I owned pretty boots. Leather ones with little clicky heels. You know the kind. And so detailed was the vision in my head of my perfect boots that the decision-making process took me three months.

Every day, I went on the Steve Madden website, and looked at the same five pairs. I opened each one in its own little tab, and I popped back and forth between them for something less than an hour, weighing the pros and the cons of each. And then I got frustrated with myself, closed all my little tabs, and moved on to something else.

O, the treacherous world of online shopping. There's no pressure towards making a decision, so, if you're like me, you can drag the ordinarily enticing experience of buying boots out across three drudging months.

Oh, but now they're here. And I am a happy woman.
