I discovered that I have 3 pair of black boots, and the identical number in brown. To be fair, some of them were incredibly cheap, so it seemed completely against the Laws of Nature not to get 2 pair.
These are the first pair: I've photographed one of each colour to show you they are identical. I like that these have a sort of Victorian look to them with their lace-up grommits. Marvellously comfy and cheap as well. Good thing they didn't have more colours!
This next pair I bought on holiday in Lille, France. They have a great lace-up ties in the back. Strictly for looks, as they have a zip on the side. I bought the black pair and discovered that they felt fabulous, and kept the rain out. I asked Gorgeous Husband if he minded if I got the same ones in brown, and he (foolishly) said, "Do whatever you want." (You can see the consequences of that!)
This last pair were very hard to photograph, as the suede seems to "eat up" the light, and makes them both look the same colour. So I took 2 photos. One pair is black, but the other is a dark chocolate brown. I wear the black ones so often, I felt it only fair to give them some company.
And then I lost my heart (and wallet) these babies:
Apparently they also had these boots in lime green, but fortunately, they had been sold, and only the pink ones were left. That was a close call. But really, even if I had to choose one, it would have been the pink ones anyway. I like the way they look with my pink charity shop scarf.
