Croco¬† rainboots are my new obsession. I think it’s a genuis idea to use a croco embossed texture, which we often see on designer handbags, on a functional shoe. It instantly gives the black rubber boots a touch of city-chic. I could easily see these croco boots with jeans and a cute cardigan, without worrying about how they affect the overall look of the outfit.

Black Friday (or Black Wednesday for me)

Happy Thanksgiving, fellow fashion addicts! It is no surprise that during¬† the last week, my house has been bombarded with catalogs, coupons and other mail promotions for the post-Thanksgiving sales. By yesterday (Wednesday), I couldn’t take it anymore. I just had to go shopping and here is what I ended up with:

Red and White Rasolli Rainboots, Writer's Own

Blue cardigan and safari print scarf, Writer's Own

Clearly, I was feeling quite inspired by color! Probably because the weather was extra gloomy.

Now I’ve gotten it out of my system and don’t have to be up at the crack of dawn on Friday, getting trampled at the stores. No, instead I’ll be at my laptop, checking out all of the crazy deals online and, hopefully, posting some of my favorite finds. Happy Turkey Day!
