It's a Bootie Ball

I was eyeing on this particular shoe for several months even though I do not have a reason to wear it. I think boots are completely out of fashion when you're living in a hot and humid country. But I got one just in case I might need it.

Just so you know, I suffer from a different kind of amnesia. The kind of amnesia when you buy something and totally forget about it. Then later on you will just be surprised finding something you didn't know you have and don't know why you bought it in the first place. I know I'm not alone in this.

Well, the boots almost suffered the same fate. But unlike all the other past purchases, it only took 4 months of being kept hidden in the dark before it was pulled right out of its box. I brought it with me in Taiwan because I thought the weather is just perfect for a bootie. And it was.

I absolutely love it! I thought I'd never be able to wear it again until the next trip to a cold country - which isn't happening anytime soon because my priorities have changed and traveling isn't really on my top 3. *sniffs*

Then Christmas happened. In November.

Together with other media men from Davao and some members of the Davao Bloggers Society, Smart Communications invited me to a fun-filled Christmas at the Farm party!

Honestly, I didn't know what to wear. I got confused between a Western farmer and a typical cowboy. But whatever I wear, I knew the boots would cut it. I had to make do with what was already in my closet and this was the closest to a farm girl as I could get (or I could have just been a potato).

I think I pulled it off. The boots are great. It's just that, I don't think I'll ever be able to wear one again. So, in to the box you go, boots.


  1. bagay naman sayo any hair kahit pa magpakalbo ka you will still look pretty with it. ang daming nangyari. inggit ako sa taiwan pictures mo ang ganda!!!

  2. I also have my hair whenever I got bored ;) The "ates" in the salon that I go to knew it.

  3. I used to suffer with amnesia as well... Hehe.. But I am trying to change now that I am a mom. I want less and more for my son. I literally strip down my closet and shoe rock. I am happy though. Anyway, you rock that farm girl outfit. Wow! You cut your own hair? That's impressive. I am planning to learn how to cut hair so I can cut my son's hair. Cutting child's hair is expensive.

  4. I like your black boots and your outfit bagay na bagay sayo sis and also your hair! Naiinggit ako sa mga short hair I really wanted to cut my hair pero ayaw ni hubby.
