First of all, has Megaera ever considered writing Danielle Steele-type novels?
I was on the fence about whether I'd ever wear these boots myself. I ultimately decided that I would, because here in New York City we love to make super-fabulous, and often somewhat over-the-top, fashion statements. I decided that the boots spoke volumes and tried to keep the rest of the outfit more understated. I chose skinny jeans to best show off the boots, as shoes sometimes get lost under bootcuts. I thought some striking, yet not overpowering, jewel tones would offset the leopard well, so I chose a teal cowlneck sweater and a beautiful berry-colored scarf. The gold jewelry echoes the warm tones of the boots. It's hard to see here, but the gold earrings have a snake print that echoes the animal print theme. I chose a black coat and gloves as outerwear, as I felt that they would allow the jewel tones and leopard print to remain the center of attention. Lastly, a cognac-colored clutch which picks up on the brown spots in the fabulous leopard print boots. I'd wear this outfit to take a trip into Manhattan (I'm a Brooklynite) for a drink with friends.
I'm still getting the hang of this Polyvore thing, so my picture's a bit smaller than I'd like. Hopefully I'll learn more in time for the next BTO!
