This is a pair of boots which I got myself last year, nearing my birthday:
Prior to the purchase... and I mean months before that, I've been on a search and a quest for an ideal pair of boots. Firstly, it's got to be neither leather nor leatherette (because leatherette chips like ANYTHING after a while); secondly, it;s got to have at least and better if not more than 2-inch heels. Thirdly, it's got to be PIRATE-Y LOOKING. Lastly, it's got to be within a reasonable price range. And throw in a good bonus: Animal print lining (folks who have seen me may have noticed that I'm into animal print nowadays)!
And yes, this pair had it all:
Check (it's suedette);
check (2 inches, and studies say that's a healthy height limit for heels if you need to walk long distances);
HELL, CHECK! (a fine pair for pillagin'! YARR);
Check (well, it was about Php1.9k... but it was the end of a search and all worth it. ^^); and
check (leopard print WIN)! :D
What the pair looks like with flash on:
I've worn it with costumes and I've worn it as part of my casual, everyday attire. The only downsides are that you can't get them wet because the material it's made of isn't waterproof, and it's also a dust bunny magnet, so I gotta dust these guys regularly, even in storage.
BUT! What caught my eye and was quite tickled about it is this small print below the brand name of the famous le yellow F21 plastic bag:
Unfortunately, it seemed to have been smothered by my photo watermark, but that's just to give you an idea of where it actually is on the bag. :P Here's a better photo:
WHAT HAVE WE HERE? Bible passage?
New International Version (NIV)
"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life."
One of out favorite retail stores preachin' the GOSPEL?
I think it's a rather nice touch, though. It's just very VERY unusually placed; but then again, perhaps the marketing people or whoever thought about the plastic bag design wanted it to blend in with the "everyday" but still stand out. Heck, it stood out to me, and I was amused. In a good way. ^^;
So I gots me a nifty pair of boots, and a dose of the Good Word in one day.
I think I just got myself a pretty good bargain. ;)
And OH YEA, one more thing:
Leopard print? It's all good. ;) I'll let the actual leopards frolic in their natural habitat. :P
