This was my first time breaking out the boots this Fall. I went with my Steve Madden's because my Frye boots were off getting spiffied up at the Frye Refurbishing Center. I had new soles put on them, a pull tab repaired, and the leather reconditioned. One pair was still under warranty, and the other was not, so it ended up costing me $75. I just received them back, and I'm pretty happy with the results. The soles look fantastic and made the biggest difference. The pull tab looks good, but I'm anxious to see how well it holds up when I start pulling on it. I was least impressed by the leather reconditioning, because I honestly can't tell much of a difference in the leather. Overall, though, I'm glad I decided to go this route rather than purchasing new boots.
Speaking of new, I have on a new dress today. This is another one from my Fall wish list. I'm happy I was able to go ahead and purchase it, because the temperatures outside have been ideal for this type of dress. In fact, I was able to purchase quite a few things on my wish list due to the perfect set of circumstances. It all started when the detective handling our burglary case found my camera in a local pawn shop. I was excited to get one of my items back, but, naturally, it was the item I missed the least. I literally hadn't taken pictures with it in over a year. Once I got it back, I decided the best course of action would be to sell it. As luck would have it, I got the money for it around the same time as Anthro Day. Since 30% off at Anthro is virtually unheard of, I took advantage and used the money I got for my camera to purchase a few things.
I loved everything I got from my Anthro Day order, but this dress is probably my favorite. The color is fantastic, and I think the fit is really flattering to my figure. However, I didn't realize until I saw these pictures how boobalicious I look in it. And to think, I was all excited about this dress because the wrapping in the front hides my fupa. I said to myself, "Surely, no one can find fault in this dress." Then I took a look at these pictures. I can just hear them now, "Oh...my...God, Becky, look at her boobs. They are just so big, round, and out there." Well, what can I say? There's a lot of stuff happening on this body. It's virtually impossible to keep it all under wraps. "Tis' better to be boobalicious than fupalicious," I always say. ;-)
