Etc. etc.

It is FREEEEEEEEZIIIIING outside. Seriously. 12 degrees. As I may or may not have said before, this is an old house, with crappy drafty windows (and not properly installed doors, as you may have noticed) and the draftiness is making it pretty freakin’ cold in here too. I’ve tried to do what I can to fix it but it’s not quite working so well. Later we’re going to go the Lowe’s or someplace and get that plastic window sealer stuff you heat with a blowdryer. Hopefully that will help because if not, it will be excruciatingly cold in here tonight.

As I mentioned a while ago, sometime last month I wrote Sal at Already Pretty to ask her thoughts on using hair color as an accessory. The post on it is up today, yay! That reminded me that I haven’t really looked for any blue shoes (see the post) since I dyed my hair, so I spent a while this morning trawling Endless to see what I found. I found two pairs of blue boots (one is more of a light turquoise) that I want. I’ll probably be getting the slouchy pair when I get paid as they’re so inexpensive, and DROOL those Irregular Choice boots are to. die. for. Something else to save up for, along with the pink leather jacket and my back tattoo…I have a feeling these will all be vying for my post-Christmas cash very soon. As of right now I’m planning on my back tattoo winning, but you never know. (suppose it depends on the amount of cash I have as well *shrug*)

True to form, I found several other pairs of shoes I liked as well…these Oh DEER! shoes are cute, but I think the cutouts might get uncomfortable or rub in a funny fashion. I also like these in black, although I can’t put my finger on why. Right now, it might just be because they look cozy and my feet are FREEZING!

I’m not sure if I like these or not but they are definitely unique!

I found these Jeffrey Cambell shoes a few days ago when digging around on SoleStruck and I LOVE THEM. Totally not even pretendably practical right now, but when warm weather rolls around, I will get a pair, no doubt.

In an effort to find out more about the maker, I found these as well:

I’m not sure if I would wear them, but I do like them. For some reason, rather than making me think of Victorian boots they make me think of slimmed down Doc Martens with heels. Go figure.

While we’re talking about shoes, check out these spats:

which it looks like have sold…there’s still these though:

I’ve got some leftover leather from a project I never got around to, maybe I’ll try my hand at somet leather spats. Not sure what I’d wear them with though, hah.

Oh and good news! A few weeks ago, there was a digital camcorder Matt and I were going to buy, but came up a little short on extra cash. It got marked down again this week at Best Buy so it will be all mine! (er…our’s) This means the stencilling tutorial might be in video format. Exciting, no?
