Look what I found?  I have been wearing my snow boots for so long now I had forgotten about all of the wonderful shoes and boots I own…  And if one is honest with oneself, one does own a LOT of shoes and boots.  It’s time to start wearing all of them again. 

I bought these super trendy Derek Lam 10 Crosby awesome ankle boots last January (2014) when I was in NYC with my sister.  They were on the mega sale in Saks so I had to have them.  More so because they are a size five and not because I loved them.

They are not a typical purchase for me as they are little bit edgy and a bit rock chick’ish rather than Professional Services by day, food and wine blogger by night person.  However, the more I wear them, the more I love them.  They make me feel cool.

They have a little tan edge on the heal, which adds even more flair

No ugly snow boots tonight, instead these Derek Lam forgotten about boots will be donned on my size five’s for dinner with my friend, Erin.

When I look down to my little feet I feel ultra-cool.
