Dear Friends and Neighbors,
Welcome to our WordPress blog! Soon we will have a fancy logo and an exciting announcement so stay tuned but for right now I want to talk about BOOTS. ‘Tis the season and I couldn’t be more excited.
Queers have a longstanding love affair with boots–hiking, combat, motorcycle, et. al.–often to not-so-great effect. This makes me really sad. However, times they are a-changing. Rugged boots are all over the place and, frankly, they look wicked gay and really gorgeous and I couldn’t be more jazzed. Take the boots pictured here, for example. Aren’t they awesome? They’re available at Barney’s right this instant.
For a closer look, check out these babies:
And I know we all keep talking about it but I wasn’t convinced until I saw Michelle’s snapshot of these Opening Ceremony x Pendleton boots in real life at OC’s LA store. They’re so excellent. I’d rock these hard:
Last night I went to see my friend Cubby’s brilliant band, Lovers and was so impressed with her $20 thrift store boots that I snapped a picture as they were breaking down after their set:
If you are not already familiar with Lovers, you should go here now, listen to a song from their latest album, “Dark Light,” and then you should buy their album. Seriously.
But I digress. Cubby’s shoes were so awesome, as was her bandmate Kerby’s fashion sweatsuit get-up. I tried and failed to capture Kerby’s success with her fitted sweatsuit outfit but this should give you a vague idea of how it is somehow possible to pull this off without looking like a frat boy at the airport:
Anyway, point is: change is in the air! The leaves are turning, even in season-less NorCal. I’m so excited to throw on my brand new Topman Grandad jumper:
and a hat like this from Rag & Bone:
and complete the look with some sweet boots (hint: CHRISTMAS PRESENT PLEASE), like a queer Nordic fisherman or New England sea captain. Tally-ho!
