I blame Sarah Jane Smith  

I'm not a shopper. I'm not a girl who likes buying things for herself. More to the point, I hate clothes shopping with a fiery passion and I really, really don't understand the whole 'shoe' thing.

That being said, I want these. A lot. And I think I want them in brown, which is weird since I'm so very much a 'black 'cause it's easy and I can't be bothered' type of person.

But... holidays are coming, so I really can't spend that money on myself. I could ask for them for my birthday/Christmas, but I know I really need practical things like socks and undies and sports bras* and a new stock pot, or better still an enameled cast iron dutch oven - excellent quality only, thanks (see? I'll go for quality in cook-ware; just not Kelly-wear).

fmeh. I suck at being a girl.

Advise me, flist. Tell me I'm right to balk at spending that kind of money (which is, admittedly, not unreasonable for a good pair of boots). Tell me I'm an idiot. Bad at Girl-ness? Good at Fan-Girlness? (since I was inspired by a Doctor Who character to even seek out these boots). Or just reply with something random or distracting or happy or interesting or adorable . That's good, too.

*what with the whole kickboxing-instructor thing
I feel: grumpydisgruntled

I must confess, those boots ARE love. And I'm a non-shoe-shopper as well. You would look lovely in them, too. I suggest you whap your husband-creature over the head and tell him you want them. Oh, and say hi to him for me! :)

Aren't they brilliant? But I'm so very bad at the shopping and/or telling someone I want that I couldn't even hint to him. I suck.

We both miss you, by the bye. Just sayin'. *smooooooch!*

They're awesome boots. It makes perfect sense to want them.

It might make sense to not buy them, since it is getting close to gift-receiving time.

IMO, it does not ever make sense to expect sports bras for one's birthday and/or Christmas.
Kel: You see how awseome I amladyjoust on November 19th, 2007 03:54 am (UTC)
Thanks for the affirmation; it's good to know that I'm utterly within my rights to long for those boots!

But I am, alas, a child of ridiculous practicality. I'm going to be teaching kickboxing classes, so I'll actually need sports bras, not hot buckle boots that an ex-Companion might wear as she raced to defeat alien Gorgons and Slitheen.

Three words -- buy the boots. You want them, you'll wear them and love them until they wear to pieces -- totally worth every penny.
Kel: look back at meladyjoust on November 19th, 2007 03:59 am (UTC)
I &hearts you!

If I had the money to hand, I totally would. Stoopid mortgage. Stoopid needing work on Moya's transmission.

And I would wear them forever. I have a sweater I've had for fourteen years - seriously! - that I just noticed was starting to develop a hole in the arm seam. Am v. cross.

Maybe I should take up a collection. "Are there sixty three people that would donate two dollars each to the incredibly pathetic and blisteringly fashion-impaired Kelly K?"

yeesh. I could not be more lame.

I don't know about your wardrobe, but in mine, brown is just as easy to deal with as black. Maybe because brown is one of my favorite colors in general, and definitely my favorite color for clothing, so I have craploads of brown stuff. And greens and blues.

Get the boots. They're awesome.

Jellyfish has them cheaper. :)

Click here to sign up if you don't have an account yet. I get credit for refferals.

Oh, and if you love them, but want them cheaper, and want them to go on the reverse auction,(aka "smack live shopping" you can send a PM to the show host, and you might get them cheaper still. Give me a shout if you want to try that, and I'll let you know who to send a note to..

I'm just saying. :) If you love those boots, buy them. Fashion things tend to go and they might not be back next season. The other things, bras, cookware...are more standard and you can catch them on sale, craigslist, on ebay, or whatever.
Kel: can't stop the signalladyjoust on November 19th, 2007 04:02 am (UTC)

first of all, thanks for the cheaper link; that's brilliant!

But I'm not a go-getter...

oh. frell it. how do I contact those folks? 'cause I want these boots like I can not even fully describe, and I SUCK at online shopping.

The part that truly sucks is that I just fell in love with them and they don't make 'em for guys.

Kel: awesomesauce!ladyjoust on November 19th, 2007 03:46 am (UTC)
HEE! that just made me miss you about a million times more than ever, dude.

Thanks. Now *I* want those boots. ;-)
Kel: not just a shop boyladyjoust on November 19th, 2007 04:03 am (UTC)
If you get them and I don't, I may sort of hate you.

Only not for real - at ALL, in fact -, and not forever, but I'll be totally envious.


I hate not being able to shop for myself. so very much.

Buy the boots. They are calling you... can you hear them? "Kelly... Kelly... buy us! We want to be on your feet! We will be lonely without you..."
Fjordhopper: Brisco County Jrfjordhopper on November 19th, 2007 10:22 am (UTC)
Those boots rock!
You deserve nice things in your life that make you happy! I say go for it. You should be able to get something you want once in a while and it's not like you are off on a rampaging shopping binge! It's just one pair of boots...warrior women need boots like that! Think of the stomping you could do!!
And Brisco thinks they are hot!

Eh, screw it. Get 'em. Life is short, and once you have a kid, you don't buy yourself presents nearly enough because presents for them take higher priority.
That said, I initially read the title of this post as you blaming Sarah Jane MOORE for a thing about shoes. Those familiar with her bit in the Gun Song in Assassins will hopefully sympathise...and if shoes inspired you to try to kill the president, I doubt anyone would argue with you.

Now, keep in mind the fact that your first sentence describes me perfectly...

Those boots are sweet. Get them. (And yes, they do seem to work better in brown.)
Ilena Ayalanetsearcher on December 9th, 2007 10:25 pm (UTC)
Those boots you wanted are now MUCH cheaper
I noticed they were $89 today on JF and went whoa, weren't they like $120 before?

And I checked the original Amazon link you had and they are $45 there, free shipping...
