I remembered posting before that I would love to own Wellies and I don’t care if people will smirk or point at me like as if I was crazy, but I will wear ’em when the time comes.
Well, anyway — what should the Hubby bring home but this:
Oh-kay…I will have to say that my jaw dropped on the floor when I saw the wild animal prints (not a big fan, not a big fan — actually, I am scared of animal prints) but then I remember that my MIL is a big fan of the wild: cheetah, zebra, leopard and even snakeskin, my fashionista mom-in-law can utterly werk it. And then, I remembered that one of FALL 2010’s hottest trends is the return of animal prints.
I was pretty impressed!
Now, if only I can work something out in terms of my corresponding outfit–that would be really cool. But I read from the numerous fashion blogs that the best way to wear Leopard print is to make the rest of your outfit subdued and let that wild piece of fashion statement do the talking for you. Animal prints, especially Leopard prints look great when paired with black or leather. (Cougar alert, then!).
I tried my Leopard print wellies earlier and loved the fact that I would look fashionable when it rains while keeping my feet dry and safe. Below is a sample of some of my favorite office shoes, which I have no intention of soaking in water during Manila’s famous downpours.
I would love to take a picture of all my shoes, especially the UGGs, the combat boots and of course, my Rockport shoes. But my long-suffering, much-abused and about to disintegrate Rockport suede ankle boots might rather not be thrust into the spotlight (especially if she looks scruffy).
Now with my new Wellies at hand, it’s time to reveal the latest content of the Christmas wish list:
Until next time, babies 🙂
