Marcel Boots

Do you remember when I mentioned how I would like to find my own pair of "Marcel" boots? Actually before Marcel, I admired the boots from Dior Homme Fall 2005, which I continually default back to for inspiration.

Exhibit A
Marcel Boots Part 1
I did order these Apepazzas a few months ago. They were a half size too small, reality check, I had to send them back.
Moment of silence. I was also eying these and these, but not quite right...

Exhibit B
Marcel Boots Part 2
My vigilance paid off as I spotted these on ebay last month.
Michael by Michael Kors, for less than 30 bucks. Estoy contenta.

  5. Well spotted! They are so your style, can't wait to see them in a shoot. I know you normally like heels & these are a great way to keep within your own style and yet wear flats.

    It's funny, in London they're called Chelsea boots I think, and Mr. Dot was mad about getting a pair for a while. He was dragging me everywhere (but ultimately he didn't: maybe he realised he's too old).

    Haven't visited in a while.. I've missed the luxury of hanging around your blog. Now I've got lots to go back thru. I miss you! Gearing up to do a post about that lovely lunch. xox

  6. Excellent looking boots. What are you going to wear with them?
    Etsy is pretty good for finds too.

  7. Isn't ebay the sh*t! between ebay and craigslist I never have time to go out and actually shop at stores, perhaps a blessing in disguise. I'm always flattered when you like something I wear, mainly because I think you are one of the few bloggers that have impeccable and unwavering taste :-) I scored the navy blazer at goodwill, I think its Kasper, lol. Thought about getting the one at Zara that was so beautiful but I didn't want to spend the 100 bux, glad i didn't :-)

  9. Stacy: I've been wearing them with suits so far.

  10. Very cool!
    Please post some more pics of your suits when you have time - they look very polished, extremely fashionable and professional. I find it difficult to hit all three nails on the head at the same time and you do an amazing job! Very inspiring.

  11. that's quite a score. i've been hunting for a very similar pair for a bit, but was pretty much unsuccessful, so i'm hunting for something similar (although it's spring already) but it MUST be the right price point. funny, i found those IDENTICAL items on my own hunt.
