Cowboy boots


I bought these fabulous cowboy boots in LA in 1996.

To be honest I’m not really sure they were ever my style. But my sister had a pair and I just loved how they looked on her (Sound familiar??), so when I made plans to go to the States, way back then, the first thing on my shopping list was a pair of cowboy boots.

I never say never when it comes to fashion (other than mini skirts, midriff tops and three quarter length pants of course) but I really can’t imagine I will ever wear them again.  I can’t for the life of me think of a way to make them work.  (Back when I bought them I was wearing boot cut styles so I’d wear them under my jeans) Perhaps if I see Ines or Emmanuelle wearing a pair one day, I’ll be inspired and tempted.

But I’ll never get rid of them.

To this day I remember exactly where I bought them, who I was with, the discussion I had with the sales person about how to break them in and the joy I felt when I found them.

The boots always bring back special memories and represent a wonderful holiday I had with my mum and dad. They’re a sentimental piece that will always be with me.

If you have a cardigan that was your nans, a windcheater you wore to uni, a pair of jeans you wore on your first date with your husband or your wedding shoes sitting in your wardrobe because you can’t bear to part with them, pull them out and put them in a storage tub or a drawer and keep them safe there.  Get them out of your wardrobe and archive them.  (Particularly if your wardrobe is busting at the seams and you’re having difficulty being able to see everything you have to work with)  Only hang the things you can and will wear today.
