The arrogance, the voice (oh God, the voice!), the "Porsche", and the leather coat.

I need a nap1



1 "nap" in this context does not entail sleep *coughs delicately*

-Wanders in, eyeing the fine establishment with silent approval though the silence is broken once the peach glossed lips parted-

Ahh, yes, yes...very good.

May one have a cup of tea before her night cap of Gin?

Gin and tea! What a brilliant suggestion my Lady Corsair. Might you join me for this treat?

Ah, well, I am still "on the clock" so to speak, so I really shouldn't...But then, one doesn't want friends to drink alone!  I'll have just a touch, I think.

I posted this in the GAAAAH thread, but I figure if anyone can help, it will be my fellow gin drinkers:

I would like to GAAAH at the fact that my perfect pair of boots probably doesn't exist.

They can't be more than £60.
They must be passable quality.
They must be leather or pleather, not fabric.
They cannot have a stiletto.
They cannot be flat.
They cannot have a wedge.
They are somewhere between mid calf and knee high and either extreme is good.
They must fit with the rest of my steamy gear.
They must be a neutral colour: black, brown, grey etc.
They must be a size 6-6 and a half.

I walked around town for 6 freaking hours trying o find shoes that match that description, and was met with frustration at every turn! They would have the perfect shoes, but they would be only in a size 3 or 8, or be £150, or have a stiletto. Honestly.

I basically want exactly what I already have (Victorian granny style boots) but highr up the leg. I adore riding/hacking boots, but need the slight heel. Gah. I want something I can tuck my tweeds into when I wear them with my waistcoat and cravat, is that too much to ask?

Apparently, yes Sad

I also want some nice basic cotton bloomers that I can dye and customise and sew things on, that also seems impossible Sad(

Sadly I can't help much on the boots.  The ones you describe I know exist but they cost a LOT more than you want to spend.  However, regarding cotton bloomers.... get a pair of comfortable cotton capris and modify them into bloomers.  That is what I did.  Baby blue cotton capris into black bloomers with lace edging.  Easy (and comfortable)

Spoiler (click to show/hide)


I found some that are similar (not very granny boot, they have a more rounded toe) at a thrift store, after going MANY MANY times.  They lace all the way up, no zipper (which is a pain, but worth it).  They're a bit orange-ish, but they have a nice suede feel (I don't know if they're real leather or not). The heel might not be big enough, though.

Oh, found a pic Smiley 
Spoiler (click to show/hide)

They're Nine West brand.  I googled them, but couldn't find an identical pair, but there are similar pairs out there.

Then I have these:

They do have a zipper on the inside.  Little taller heel.  Made of black pleather. Got them on shoebuy.com I think...for $80, which is less that £60, but I don't know what shipping to the UK would be. Smiley  You can get them without the lace detail too, so they'd look more like plain leather.  A little slippery on soft carpet, but I think one might be able to add something to the bottom, like traction tape for stairs, which would help.  Actually...I might try that.

I'm going to brave work today, en=ven though I clearly am ill and there is 4 inches of snow outside. Chances are I will get there, my boss will see I'm ill, assume I have Swine Flu, and will send me back home again. I'd be pretty angry if she did that though, if I made it to work, I am well enough to do my damned shift. My mum went back to work two weeks after having a masectomy, during her chemotherapy, a damned sniffle will not see me shirking in bed!




I do need cookies and hugs though.....  Embarrassed

Hope you got to do your shift!  *offers a plate of assorted cookies and hugs*

Is it the effects of caffeine you're avoiding, or the withdrawal?
