Bring on spring!! A bit chilly for this outfit here in Boston MA today but ahh well!
I love these boots ALOT. I got them for 50$ from Target. They are real leather (!) and look very much like Fryes. Sadly they only lasted a season. The sole is getting ground off but that's alot of wear and tear considering I never took them off.

Terribly sorry, I am NOT a professional photographer. The dress was another find from the Buffalo Exchange, its black silk with white ruched detail. The deep V back and the slit sleeves are terrific, very dramatic. A little thin but when worn with spandex (love me some black spandex) it was perfect for a warm January night in Boston.

Hoooo boy. Every one keeps telling me about this place called the Buffalo Exchange that just opened in Davis square Cambridge MA. I guess they are all over the country. Its like a Salvation Army trimmed down to just the "finds" not that I mind the digging. It is also located right next door to a Goodwill in case you need to fill your needs for a canary yellow polyester pant suit and old man pants. actually that doesn't sound half bad... maybe if the pant suite were GOLD! But I digress.
These boots were one of the four things I procured from this wonderful place. I currently have them on my feet and although my toes have gone temporarily (I hope) numb they will undoubtedly stretch to fit my footsies. the marvels of leather being what they are.
Outfit to match soon...

Off we go!
These pictures were taken by photographer Tara Jones she came home to find me making feeble attempts to take my own picture and steped in to save me.
The brown velvet shoes are from Nomad, a local shop in porter square cambridge MA that has heaps of cool Mexican jewlery as well as clothes from Free People. They were having a sale and I got these for 50% off! Huzzah!
