For the Love of Lanvin

Up until about a year and a half ago, you would not have caught me in flats. I simply didn't like them. Then I fell hard for Lanvin. Their flats were so comfortable for me and while clearly well made, very understated. I like that. I don't need flashy luxury items and these were perfect. After my love affair with the ballet flats started, I was searching for a pair of flat boots and eventually wanted the pair I posted above. I spent a good week trying to track down a pair on Barneys super sale. I literally had called every Barneys New York store in the country. No one had them. I had just about given up when I finally got through to the Madison Avenue Store and the sweet SA said she thought she had one pair left, but only if I was willing to accept brown. It was meant to be. These remain my "go to" boots. The leather is fantastic and they rock for walking to and from work when, as much as I love them, a 4 inch pair of Louboutins just isn't going to work.
After the post about OTK boots, I thought I'd show you my favorite riding boots. Who makes yours? What do you lust after?

I can't ever hear of Lanvins without thinking of you. Creepy, no? I'm not a big shoe person, and the only boots I have that are new are those Target Frye knockoffs, which I have yet to wear.

These are insanely gorgeous! I may very well be drooling over them...goodness!

My calves are too fat for boots, and I am too proud to get extended-calf sizes and too lazy these days to go have normal boots stretched by my cobbler.

My laziness keeps me fat, too. Jabba jabba!
