When I grow up...

As a little girl, and this assumption is based purely on anecdotal evidence, you probably wanted high heels because they looked so glamorous and beautiful and shiny.  You'd think, "Man, those would go great with this princess dress and Mardi-Gras-beads-style necklaces" (I'm paraphrasing here, give me some leeway).  But you probably didn't yearn for four-inch high heeled ankle booties made of, wait for it...

burlap.  I know I didn't.  But after writing my post about the Oxfords I found and then having my sense of fulfillment dashed by the discovery of those delicious heels from J. Crew, I found myself perusing the internet in the hopes that something, something, anything would assuage the agony of being unable to possess said shoes (can you tell I was also avoiding studying for my finals?).

But lo and behold! I found these.


Seychelles 'Keep Close' Booties

Where, you ask?  On the website of my most beloved retailer, Anthropolgie.  On sale.  YES.  So I got them, knowing that they would fit perfectly into my shoe collection, and in a way that a pair of Oxford high heels never would.  What I most like about them, aside from the way they make my legs look, is how casual they manage to be in spite of their impressive height.  I will gladly add an extra five minutes to my walk to class in order to break out these bad boys come spring.  Which might be approaching (!).
