Even though I hate gloomy weather, I have been anxiously waiting for an opportunity to use and photograph these rain boots and make a post about them. This was love at first sight. They are colourful. They are Pucci. They have a freaking high heel. Barbie would wear this. My inner child is giddy.
Rain boots, in Portuguese, means galochas. And these are fabulous. Hence, meet the Fabulochas:
You can’t be a shoe enthusiast like me without having a few unconventional pairs on your wardrobe. Or more than a few. Spanning different decades and styles. Hey, it’s shoes, the more the merrier. We shan’t be shoe-shamed.
Anyway, funky shoes, specially if multi-coloured, can be hard to style. Particularly if you want to incorporate them in an office appropriate outfit, which I certainly do. I’ll be damned if I only get to wear these boots during the weekends. There’s always the all-black outfit option, that’s great to have and will always look chic, but I don’t want to keep defaulting to that. So this is my take on a classic yet unorthodox outfit, that I can actually be taken serious in.
Just another winter Sunday. We went to Dear Breakfast again, and I would tell you that I’m always excited to go there because the food is great, which it is, but I would be lying. I’m excited ’cause of Mary. They serve Bloody Mary’s with brunch.
Anyway, it was an excuse to bust out these boho, non-office appropriate over-the-knee boots.
We had no summer this year. Climate change is here to stay. There was sun, sometimes, but there was no heat. I’m used to 28º Celsius and up during Summer’s 3 months, and we had about two weeks of that.
I’m already missing something I haven’t had, so you can understand the dark mood.
Like I mentioned before, one of these days I was exercising my regular dose of procrastination and fell down the shoe rabbit hole into the vegan world.
A lot of brands that currently make shoes without leather, using cheaper plastic as a replacement, employ an obvious marketing maneuver to label the material as “vegan-leather” when veganism has nothing to do with it. What pisses me off is not so much that they are trying to re-brand a cost reducing strategy as an ethical intention, it’s mainly because those materials don’t respect the vegan principle of protecting the environment.
I do a lot of my procrastination browsing Farfetch. I justify it by telling myself that I’m looking for some things that are missing from my wardrobe: a wide brim black hat. Some knee-high socks. I desperately need a replacement for my worn-out black overcoat.
So after a lot of searching I got none of that and bought another pair of boots instead.
