Fur boots in Florida. Sure, why not?



I think every clothes lover living in Florida slips into an occasional fugue state in which we convince ourselves we're actually in a cozy Vermont cabin with powdery, fresh-fallen snow dusting the cedar shingles. And then we make hot cocoa with the air conditioner whirring, get online and buy stuff like this.


Yes, my more rational friends, I now own these Recoil boots from Aerosoles. They're marked down from $150 to $39.99, so they were a great deal. I actually bought them with an upcoming trip in mind. See, I'm going to Northern California and then SOUTH KOREA at the end of February. Exotic, right? It's also going to be freezing.

I couldn't wait to wear them until then, though, so I'm sporting them today, when the high here is in the mid-sixties. I probably look like a total blockhead, but ask me if I care. My feet are cozy and mad comfortable, on their own little foot vacation in Vermont.

Still, every time I catch my feet in a reflection, I think maybe the rest of my outfit should look like this:


Nothing says fashion-forward like a Tauntaun ride through the ice planet Hoth.
