Favorite bag and favorite boots...

I read somewhere that women in the 1930's didn't consider themselves to be well dressed unless they had matching shoes, bag, gloves, scarf and hat. and if that's not enough it was also important for them that coat and accessories would match the rest of the outfit. This is how far i have used the whole concept.... i like it so far.....just a quick question here: what kind of hat, scarf, gloves would you use with this ?

I have to say I love shoes, and i really like when people write about shoes, especially when they write about the ones that stick around, the ones that last more than a season. you should go read ulrikas little essays about her shoes see it here and here.




My boots are from Andefødder ( duck feet ). I have had them for two years now and they just looks better and better. The leather is real thick and was not so easy to break in, but it is also the good quality leather that makes them so long lasting. I have a little plan to make some legwarmers to be worn over tights. The legwarmers should be inside the boots and stick out with 10 cm.

The bag is from Chloe and is a gift from John ( you see I probably would never buy something that expensive... ) I just love it. It is the perfect size and goes with me everywhere. It has a look that goes with high heels as well as my working boots. Some women have lots of bags and use a lot of time organising their stuff, and shifting it from one bag to the other. It would never work for me. I need one bag, one purse, Kleenex, lip balm, mobile, keys, paper and pen...not more....except all the extra things that somehow ends there ( oh I am such a mess... )

Oh, I love those boots. I am looking for a specific style for long time now and these are exactly what I am looking for.
I am the same with the bags too.
I am off to search if I can buy duckfeet in U.S.
