Grandma and I share a “look”

A friend told me that the big locally owned shoe store where I can always find what I want, was having a boot sale — 70% off.  Perfect.  I wanted a pair of boots that had low heels, so I trotted on over there and found just exactly what I needed, and at a verrrrry good price.

These really look nice with a pair of slacks, but when you see the whole boot, they look an awful lot like the button shoes women in the early 1900’s wore.

But this modern version has zippers that make them easy to put on and take off.

Stick around long enough and old things will become new again … but with zippers.

    Very nice.. zippers and velcro helped to revive a lot of fashions.

    I’ve seen these in person (on your person), and they’re very pretty. Ha! I should post a picture of the boots I bought before the blizzard. Yours look very dainty and feminine. Mine, not so much. 🙂 But they keep my feet warm when I have to shovel the snow that my sick hubby hasn’t been able to shovel himself.

    I’ll bet that I went to the same shoe store and also bought a pair of low heeled boots. Love them…but mine don’t have buttons, more gathering across the toe. I love those sales!!!

    Amen, Hilary. 🙂

    Linda — Looking forward to a picture of your shoveling-snow boots. 🙂

    Mary — We both love a good sale, don’t we. 🙂

    Beth — I kind of like the “look” too. 🙂
