Might as well call me "Bootsy"

boots by weber Stompy Zeppelin Boots

It is me. I am once again wearing boots. I went through a small crisis yesterday where I actually didn't post! I spent the time pondering the fact that it's tough to always write about new items and still maintain my avatar's essential look. I know that the fashion world of SL is interested in the new and shiny (and hell, so am I), but I think I've got to start wearing certain old things over again to be true to my vision of an SL "me." Clothing is the symbolic representation of one's subjectivity, after all!

Schadenfreude Pointy Buckle Boots

Deep thoughts, eh? Anyway, did I mention that I'm once again wearing boots? These are new and shiny releases from four different designers. They're all vastly different in aesthetic, unified by the fact that they're all boots!

I have to laugh about the fact that all of these boots are actually very different. The first pair, 713's Stompy Zeppelin Boots, inspired the outfit. I'm wearing conductor pants! I found them at Gigi Couture while shopping around Cherry Buttons. They've got all kinds of colors of these pants, but the striped ones most inspired me to sing "I've been workin' on the railroad, aaaalllll the live-long daaaaaaay."
