For The Love Of… Shoes! – Part II

One of the “downsides” to my new job is that I have to go through town to get home. Pair that with getting off early, and you get a whole lot of temptation. Feel free to call me weak, but I can’t go through town without going into at least one store. Now I’m aware that going into a store is one thing and coming out with a purchase is another, but I tend to fail at both! However, this particular purchase I’ve managed to justify for myself, since I got them after my first day at the job: I got myself a present for getting through the day!

Ladies and, well, probably more ladies, I present to you the newest addition to my evergrowing shoe collection:

Gorgeous green goodness!

Gorgeous green goodness!

Not only did I fall in love with these suede booties and their wonderful colour upon sight, I was lucky enough to be able to get them in my size. This is oftentimes quite hard since I need a size EU36/UK3/US5, and those mostly come in only 1 pair per store. I guess you can imagine how extatic I was once I got my hands on these :)

I’ve been looking for a nice pair of cowboy style boots for years, so here they are. They’re even more beautiful in real life, and I wish I had a good pic of the details; the front stitching looks like a butterfly, and they’re accented with tiny copperish studs. On top of all that, they’re also insanely comfortable! There’s just one small thing: their colour gives me a bit of a hard time with implementing them in my outfits. Luckily, the majority of my wardrobe consists of black so it looks okay, but I really wish I could do something else with them as well. So any advice/thoughts/ideas are very welcome!

I got them in the clearance sale at the Tango store in The Hague, and I couldn’t find them in their web shop, so I’m not sure if it’s possible to get them elsewhere. Either way, I believe I snatched the last pair in that store anyway ;)

So what do you think? Yay or nay for green and/or western style boots?

Thanks for reading!

EDIT: I made a small mistake regarding the store I bought the shoes in. It’s not Sacha, as I mentioned in the first place, but Tango.

Movie Time: The Butterfly Effect

As mentioned earlier in my Hunger Games post, I’m not really a movie person. It’s not like I don’t like movies or anything, it’s just hard for me to find a movie that can catch and keep my attention the way books can. The other day my boyfriend and I decided to watch “The Butterfly Effect”. And now, after seeing it for the first time, I almost feel ashamed that I’ve had a copy for almost 5 years, and just boycotted it because Ashton Kutcher was playing the main character (nothing agains Ashton, really, but he just didn’t seem credible to me, in a “serious” movie).

Now, I can’t really describe how I felt after watching this movie. In a way, I hated it, because it’s so incredibly sad how everything Evan does to make things better, in the end makes everything worse. The story was so well made up, I don’t think there was a second I lost my focus and interest. And that ending… So, so sad and beautiful at the same time, it got both of us crying! Of course, the beautiful Oasis song during the credits wasn’t making things better for us either;

What I also loved about this movie, is that it just got me thinking, you know? It sounds really lame, but after seeing it, and especially the way it ended, I just appreciate everything I have a little bit more.

All in all, I think this one’s going into my top 10! And for all of you who haven’t seen it yet: GO SEE IT NOW! I promise, it’s gonna be 2 hours of your life very well spent.

Have you seen The Butterfly Effect? What did you think?
