I have taken up learning to cook. I purchased my first cooking book, Cooking Light Way to Cook Complete and intensively reading all 496 pages of it.
Between my art history books, I am also squeezing in some time to read a finance book, Financially Stupid People Are Everywhere: Don't Be One of Them. Besides looking flawless and being intelligent, every woman should be a competent cook and be able to manage her own finances. Yes, be expecting a finance 101 post...
For my outfit, I was eager to wear my new handmade Candela NYC Robin boots, which just arrived yesterday. After buying Candela "Tokyo" Brogues, I fell in love with the quality of Candela leather and craftsmanship. I've always wanted a pair of Frye Harness Boots, not only because of their historic past but the effortless look as well. The story behind them is:
In the 60's women began to wear Frye boots in clear and bold defiance of restrictive 1950s femininity. They were a boot that meant strength and power, which women were intent on claiming at the time... Every woman seemed to have a pair, and they were such an iconic part of the decade that when the Smithsonian Institute was searching for items to represent 1960s America, they chose a pair of Fryes."( Garcia, The One Hundred, pg.94)
However due to their wide fit, I could not find a pair that would fit my narrow foot. As a result, I decided to search out a boot that embodied the spirit and style of Fryes and as a result decided on this pair.
