Boot Scoot n’ Boogie

I fell in love last weekend. With the Broken Spoke. My roommate’s mom (fun fact: she was formerly a competitive country dance champion) came in town from Minnesota and it was only fitting to let her show off her Texas two-step at our beloved country dancin’ bar. Upon arrival, I felt like I had been transported to one of those terribly amazing rom coms set in a quaint southern town (i.e. Sweet Home Alabama, Hope Floats, the Hannah Montana movie).

It didn’t take me long to start surveying the crowd for interesting fashion items. I spotted one set of identical twins dancing together which was a little confusing, but they were both fully committed to the Rockabilly look. There was another girl with full bangs, extra long hair, and an amazing vintage belted dress. And then there was this:

ZOMG.

After harassing the poor girl wearing these fabulous boots and convincing her to let me take a picture for my uber-successful fashion blog, she told me the story behind them. They were passed down to her from her Grandmother a few years ago and she never really gets to wear them anymore since she lives in New York. I mentioned that I would be glad to take part-custody while she is living there. She can just have them back when she comes into town again?

Moral of the story: Finding good style is a little bit like shopping at the Ross shoe section. Sometimes you gotta check in all the wrong racks in order to find the right size. Broken Spoke seemed like it just wasn’t going to fit, but it turned out to be just my size.
