Boots Vs. Dress Week - Parisienne or Buckled Brutes?

In the hallowed tradition of previous Dress Weeks (click here and here to marvel), namely Dress Week, Return of Dress Week, It Came From Dress Week, Son of Dress Week, and I Was a Teenage Dress Week, we continue with:

Boots Vs. Dress Week
The boots will kick this week off in style: these Bronx beauties were a mere $60 on sale about 5 years ago, and are one of the few pairs of shoes I have from before I lost weight. They are hazardous to walk in, but good for looking scary!
"You'll put your eye out!"

The dress is a nice soft sweater dress - got it a few years ago when I had to replace my whole wardrobe. I always want red dresses. They're my weakness.
Oui, oui, c'est tres magnifique!

The sweater was layered over top with my new-to-me belt (I had to do some belt-hole punching with my trusty steak knife today to make it fit).

The stuff:
Groovy belt buckle (caw! sparkly!), Shi Studios wrist cuff and stud cuff.

One must be the victor!

Will it be Boots or Dress?
The dress!
The boots!
I'm not particularly bothered about either of them
I like monster movies

Dress (Kersh), sweater (Mexx, thrifted), boots (Bronx), belt (Le Chateau, consignment), cuff (Shi Studio), stud cuff (vintage).

  3. I am a red dress girl myself (maybe it's something to do with red hair?) so I can't *not* vote for the dress. The buckled boots are fabulous, though.

  4. Red dresses are my weakness, too. They're like kryptonite.

  7. Alison - you're so right. That dress is in the "get rid of" pile.

    Wendy, thanks! I love monster movies!

    Lyn, you are too sweet! Thank you so much. Aw...

    Kari, I hear you...but the dress has issues (bad lining, too long). I'll look for a new one.

    Sal, what is up with that?

    Thanks, K - it was!

    Eednic, I know, it was like a light bulb went on. Why have I never done it before? Thank you!
