My salad dressing days

Dear brown suede knee-length boots

I can’t tell you how much I have been looking forward to this day: a day cool enough for our first date. You’ve been lying there in that flamingo-pink box for almost a year – A WHOLE YEAR, goddammit! (Do you know what that does to a girl??)

I wondered briefly whether you might combine best with some three quarter length jeans but settled on a knee-length skirt. I even did that thing I never do, the thing I really like about not being in remunerated, office-based employment: I wore tights. Yes, just for you! Did you notice? And I didn’t give a second thought to all those times I had to slip behind doorways to yank the crotch up after its persistent south-bound descent. It didn’t matter, because every time I pulled at the material sagging round my knees, I saw your silky, suedey loveliness. Ooooh…

Did you notice how I stopped in front of that mirrored lift door, pretending that I had lost something in my handbag when really I was sneaking a glance at us? And did you see the way people looked at us? I just know people were staring at us. C’mon: we looked HOT!

And I hope you didn’t mind that I kept slipping my hand under the table in the restaurant to stroke you. I sure as heck didn’t see you complaining…

Listen. I want you to know that I’m coming to an acceptance of the fact that your lining is man-made. Without a doubt, this was a source of some disappointment in the early days, but so long as you give out a little (my calves are just the teensiest bit cramped right now), I don’t care.

But hey! What’s this about you pinching around my ankles?! Are you trying to make some sort of a point? With pleasure comes pain? I guess I can live with that…hell, especially if my ankles look so damn skinny with it!

Anyway, I hope we can do it all again soon, maybe even tomorrow? Not long after I took you off, I had to put on my slippers (those autumn nights are getting chilly!). But I thought about you all the time. Truly I did.


P.S. By the way, I’ve been giving some thought to Christmas. I know I’ve always resisted in the past, but I’m thinking about getting you some boot insert supports. None of your plastic nonsense. I’m thinking solid pine. I mean, you’re worth it!

P.P.S. I know, I know. This photo doesn’t do you justice. But you were somewhat unco-operative at the shoot. You were begging to be plumped up with rolled-up bits of old newspaper, but there just wasn’t the time, honey. Sorry.

Those are the most perfect boots I have ever seen. I am drooling over here in Ohio.

Pink box – Poste Mistress?

This is a clip from the fetish website FemmeDom:

“I remember from years ago the pleasant smells of the traditional cobblers / shoe repairers. It reaked of that smell. Absolutely fantastic and so evocative.”

Don’t say we didn’t warn you.

UC you can probably get therapy for the shoe obsession youknow ;o)

And I do not recomend Retail therapy for it.:o)

I understand the love affair — those are great.

And I love the fake digging around in handbag in front of mirror trick!

ooh – have you never been to Poste Mistress? Be prepared to sink serious dosh. Best shoe shop in London although I do rather dislike the stuffed cat in the corner.

Comment by GreatSheElephant

Nice. I want them in black. Can we arrange that please?

mudfx – making things look muddier than they really are. Committees.

Comment by Justine

Wow, suede is the best shoe/boot fabric ever. I recently bought two pairs of suede shoes at once – a pair of turquoise suede slingbacks with kitten heels and little suede bows on the front and a pale green pair of suede t-bar 20’s style high heels, perfect with a floaty tea dress. Sigh. And they were both in the sale.

Poor Mr. Chick. Usurped by a pair of boots. 🙂

No Chick is Urban without some saucy boots.

So jealous of the beautiful boots. I, too, would have difficulty not stroking the lovely suedishness of them.
