Bootie Oops

So what happened?  How did I end up with booties which I love and yet may be a mistake?  Careless shopping, that's how.


I love these boots, and was so excited when I found them.  They have the little laser cutouts all over which are a thing right now and I quite like, they are a good colour for spring and well they are  just darn cute.  I found them in a local discount store, Winners, which I sometimes forget has items discounted because they are seconds.  I didn't notice until I had these boots home and started wearing them around inside to break them in, but not all of the cut outs got properly cut out.  I don't think it shows really unless you know to look for it or if I were sitting on the bus and someone across from me spent half an hour staring at my feet.  I am trying to tell myself it doesn't really matter and and is just one of those things like when you buy something and the label says, these flaws and imperfections are part of the charm and character of the fabric ( hah, good scam! )

I pondered taking a wee sharp knife and attempting to fix the cutouts that didn't quite get cut out but we all know I SHOULD NOT do that.  It would end in disaster.   I should embrace wabi sabi and see the beauty in the flaws.  Poor little boots that nobody would buy so they ended up at a discount store.  I will give you some love, poor little boots.  Yes I will!

  1. It doesn't show, resist the urge to take a sharp knife to these cute boots, you know this is the right decision. Doing nothing is sometimes the right thing to do. xx

  2. LOL-I will resist! Thanks for the support. I quite like that last statement. I will make a sign and hang it on my wall : Doing Nothing Is Sometimes the Right Thing to Do!
    Thank you, my Guru!

  3. You can't tell at all, and they're wonderful boots. Hopefully the urge to cut them will leave you; otherwise that's all you'll think about when you wear them! I like your idea of enjoying the imperfection .... Xoxo

  4. nobody will see it! just run fast enough ;-)
    this are the kind of booties i imagined with the lace dress....
    my weekend was very pleasant in the way of wanderlust. and if you lived around here then you could go with unshaved legs. no one would bat an eye. nevertheless i shave. for me. even if it's bugging me.

    1. Well if I had had blonde hair on my legs like I do on my arms I would probably skip the shaving but no. Basically I am never happy-I hate the nuisance of shaving but I also don't like having unshaven legs.
      It might be more difficult to run fast in that dress.

  5. LOL Give some love to those boots : )

    I agree...do NOT try to cut them out. You can't see what you're talking about. Only you will know. If you are OCD this might bother you, but don't let it. Be very Zen about the whole thing and let it slide off your back. You don't care...you don't care...hmmmmmmmmmm.

    Good? : )

  6. No, can't see anything other than cool boots. If anyone stares at your feet for too long flash your boobs, that'll distract them (and probably make their day) xxx

    1. If anyone is staring at my feet for a long time I am going to have to assume a foot fetish and not a boob fetish. I could just ask if they have been saved by Jesus. That will probably make them skedaddle.

  7. The boots are fabulous, please don't attack them with a knife for something no one can even see! You said it yourself - It Doesn't Matter! xxx

  8. I promise and do solemnly swear I will not attack my boots nor anyone nor anything else accept maybe a cheescake. I cannot promise not to attack a cheescake.

  9. DON'T DO IT ... NO good can come of it ... no good at all. Nobody else will ever notice ... and if they do ... it adds personality and originality :0)

  10. I'm dropping the knife now! My poor little boots are safely nestled in my closet with the other boots and there is a rumour that I'm going to wear them again tomorrow!

  12. Iv'e squinted and looked, I can't see anything other than they are gorgeous boots, I always say if anyone is looking so close they can see something like that then kick them - a little aggressive maybe, but they wouldn't do it again! x x x

    1. LOL- I like the image in my mind of you squinting at my boots. Not to mention the suddenly toothless people I am now imagining!

  13. Shawna these boots are uber cute! I just read an article on the Zoe Report that talks about perforated items as a new trend. I love the little cut-outs. It makes them look more feminine. Here is the article - http://thezoereport.com/perforated-eyelet-trend-spring-2014/

    1. Thanks for the link to the article. I had been noticing laser cut outs in clothing in magazines and when I saw it in booties I just loved it. I have another pair of black booties that also have the little cut outs. I agree about them looking more feminine, and I suppose it's similar to lace. I am quite fond of eyelet too, though I guess that's not surprising since my most favourite style tends to be rather boho.
