I’ve always always hated Flats which is funny since I’ve somehow managed to accumulate 16 pairs. Truth be told, aside from the Multi-Color Print Black Slip-Ons all the way on the left and the Cobalt Blue right next to it, and the Black Sneakers all the way on the other end, all the rest (13 pairs) were purchased in one go (around early 2008) from the Kuwaiti equivalent of a $1 Store. They actually cost somewhere around KD 3/000 per pair so I felt like I was getting a good deal and kinda’ went crazy… regardless of the fact that I don’t wear Flats or even like them, for that matter. After this post, I’m going to be getting rid of all of them except for one.
For as long as I can remember, I’ve always lusted after Ugg Boots. I just thought they were the coolest thing ever!
These are all my Black Boots.
These are all my Non-Black Boots.
I’d like to preface this by saying I’ve always loved the look of Boots on myself, as well as on others because they just look so cool! Honestly, if I could get away with it, I’d wear Boots all year round! I know it’s March (well, technically the end of March) but I wanted to get this Boots Collection post out of the way now, rather than wait until next Winter. Please note that these Boots are an accumulation of a life-time (not purchased all in one go). I’ve gotten rid of so many of my Boots during the first few times I moved homes. Some of the ones left either have sentimental value (near and dear to my heart), are more unique, or most worn (favorites). With that being said, I’d still like to whittle down my Boots Collection even more.
As soon as I got an account with Aramex (towards the end of 2007) I immediately went crazy on Amazon.com and subscribed to every single girly magazines out there (read more about it in my Book Club post). This was back in 2007 and no I don’t have a good memory. In fact, I have the memory of a goldfish. The reason why I know the exact date is because I’m looking at my order history on Amazon.com. Also from Amazon back in December 2007 (like I said, as soon as I got an Aramex account) I ordered some more Manga, DVDs, girly books (the rest of Gossip Girl, The A-list, Shopaholic, etc…), clothes, jewelry, stuff from Sephora (finally!) via Amazon, and some shoes. Now here’s the funny part. My shoe size is 38… so I ordered a bunch of shoes in a US size 8 (just subtracted the 30 lawl). Logic! Clearly, that’s now how it works. In any case, I’ve always thought that Boots are the epitome of cool and I’ve always loved the way they look on myself and others. Sadly, we didn’t have much options in Kuwait (again, this was back in 2007) so I ordered several Boots from Amazon. Apparently I felt the need to order Rain Boots (plural, bearing in mind that Kuwait is a desert country… where it rains about three times per year) as well.
Over the years, I’ve only ever visited the two H&M branches at the Avenues (H&M Phase I and H&M Grand Avenues). I know of the H&M branch in Salmiya (facing Fanar Mall) but it’s so far out of my way, and the parking situation is a nightmare so I never felt the need to go there. However, I’ve begun to suspect that different branches have different items, like certain collections will only be sold in certain branches. I mean I can understand it when they do that in the U.S. or U.K. or anywhere else in the world where it can take a year to get from one branch to the next but in little old Kuwait, where it takes all of five minutes to get from one border to the next? C’mon now.
The first time I went to the Salmiya Branch of H&M (this past December), I was bit overwhelmed. I was only there for quick peek because I was with a friend and we just happened to be in Salmiya. The 3-floor H&M store seemed huge! Once I got a feel for the place, it seemed less so. The basement floor was for children. The ground floor had a mish-mash of all their clothing items with a sufficient changing room area. The top floor had even more clothing items (smart evening wear, business casual, and active wear) with a section dedicated to pajamas and lingerie, including only two changing rooms. There was an entire section dedicated to accessories and a somewhat smaller cosmetics section directly by the cash register. They’ve also got an entire area just for men, which I didn’t notice until my second or third visit.
Let me preface this by saying I think Jeffrey Dean Morgan is ridiculously hot! He’s made me swoon in the movie P.S. I Love You. He’s made me cry as Denny Duquette on Grey’s Anatomy. I’ve loved him as John Winchester on Supernatural. Now, I pretty much worship him as Negan on The Walking Dead! As such, just like when any normal girl crushes on a guy… I’m trying to emulate him (no really, that’s totally normal).
Step 1 – Get a cool leather jacket (like the one he rocks on The Walking Dead).
Step 2 – Get rid of every ounce of fat on my body (because said leather jacket looks mighty loose on him).
Step 3 – Grow a foot taller (He is 6’1 whereas I am 5’1).
The first two are doable but I dunno’ about that last one. I’m pretty sure it requires surgery. Also, sounds painful.
Actually, I love… Loungewear. I’ll tell you why. Loungewear is just so comfortable (enough to lounge in ergo lounge-wear). Loungewear keeps me warm when it’s cold outside. Loungewear keeps me cool when it’s hot outside. Loungewear is easy. Loungewear is effortless. Loungewear is life.
