Sexy or tacky ?.....

Last wednesday I met up with my friend Ellie for a quick coffee and as we parted, I told her I needed to go to the florist shop down the main street of the village. I was thinking about red roses and instead of going straight to the florist, I entered the shoe shop next to it and heard myself saying : "holà, quiero unos tacones altissimos...en rojo" (hi, I want very high heels..in red).
And this is what I came up with....

mmm....I think I made a mistake...luckily they were very cheap. But I'm afraid they are also very cheap in the other meaning of the term. At least, Monchéri laughed. He found them...interesting and different from the boots I usually wear. You see, lately this has been my preferred uniform. (I've got the same velvet trousers in several colors and wear them all the time. sorry about the pic taken halfway in the shade)

still I think perhaps one day, I'll wear the sexy/tacky red boots...

but I love my black boots so much...life is tough isn't it ? (am standing in front of a stained mirror, hence the black spots)

talking about shoes....isn't this one a darling ? My friend Tim took this photograph which you can find on his etsy shop here. (do you remember the picture of the flamenco dress ? that was Tim too....do have a look at his shop !). And my banner, it's Tim too....
Mis queridos, my lovelies, I'm afraid I'll be very flighty this week
as my friends and I are busy little bees preparing our outfit
for a fancy dress party this coming saturday.

I will show you mine on wednesday....In the mean time, stay cool and be in love !


ps : I can't leave comments on some blogs where a word verification is asked (Cynthia, Khaled et al..) So annoying ! Does anyone have the same problem ?

I was skipping around blogs and popped in .. I like the boots.

I've had the same issue with the word thingy .. I couldn't see the word to type it in - it was very annoying. I finally figured out that if I do the Preview option to preview the comment, and from there click to submit or post, I can then see the word. Hope it helps you too. :)

Cynthia said...

Lals Ema, Some other bloggers mentioned this same problem...I just type submit without typing anything. The next word offered ...appears like magic! I'm going to try to take it off for a while...tangobaby had a lot of trouble with taking it off...and spamers...sigh...I'm going to risk it ...Braja also had trouble...do you know her? She's quite unexpected... I think the red boots are fun...can you really wear them? Ouch! <3

kyh said...

wow... they r sexy in a bella like u! i love to see women who can carry off in these sleek boots. so chic! ;)

Cecile/DreamCreateRepeat said...

impulsive shoe purchases are part of the heritage of our sex. If you can walk in them....wear them!

Scarlet said...

I would live in my black boots if I could...but the red, ooh laa laa, Chica! I approve. They'd look beautiful on you...not cheap at all.

Enjoy preparing for the party!

You are beautiful,young, tiny- you can wear ANYTHING and be fabulous! LOVE the black boots- the red ones look painful to me but if you can wear them without becoming foot angry I am sure that you would dazzle!

Indyeah said...

Anyone else(read me:D ) probably wouldnt have been able to, but you surely can carry them off with style!:)

and cheap can become ooh la la and darn chic if worn by the right person..:)

all the best for the party!:)

Every now and then a pair of red boots is just the thing - you look so fabulous and can definitely wear them.. so make sure you do, xv.

Claire said...

your smile is naughty...

Red boots make all the difference (when going out). Those are absolutely gorgeous! :)

I could not help noticing that your new hig heels were resting upon the cover of Moulin Rouge (DVD, I gather) in the first image. I wonder, was it an intentional statement or happy 'accident'?

Greetings from London.

I think you look so stunning, nothing could make you look cheap -particularly if you keep the rest of your outfit understated so the the red boots really stand out as a fashion statement and not as aother red accessory...
Hope you have lots of fun at the fancy dress party..:)

You should wear the red boots,with jeans cut like trousers or an all black outfit so they would not look cheap.
Un abrazo

Susana said...

Lalita! Llevadas por tí, seguro que las luces con estilo y clase!!!

Las botas negras me ENCANTAN!!! Y sales muy guapa en las fotos... la floristería granadina tiene mucho carácter!

I continue totally in love, as you recommend... in fact, this week is our first wedding anniversary!

Look forward to checking out your party outfit... I am sure it will be FAB!

Jojo said...

Can't wait to see the Wednesday presentation. To answer your p.s. inquiry...yes, it is totally annoying.
