Two things of note in this outfit:
– the brooch. I made this for the etsy shop, but it came out wonky and deformed, so I’m keeping it for myself. I like wonky and defomed.
– the boots. I bought these right at the tail end of last winter online at camper. They didn’t stock them in the edinburgh shop, so I never got a chance to try them on, and it turns out that they fit only just. They are quite tight and I know the larger size would be too big, so I never sent them back. There’s also a seam at the back that rubs off against the back of my heel, which can end up really sore. I had the same issue with my camper shoes, and it went eventually, so I’m sure this will too, once I wear them in. It’s just it hurts it wear them for too long. So my plan of action is to slather the offending seam in vaseline daily, and to wear them at work, where I don’t do much walking, but hopefully enough for the leather to soften up.
