The Dream Of Pirate Boots

PirateFrom the time I was a little girl and saw all kinds of pirate movies I wanted a pair of boots that would go over my knees. Even fat little girls could dream about things like that. Didn’t everyone want to be a pirate? The ’60s had shiny hooker-styles that looked unbelievably bad on a fat 13-year-old. The 70’s brought beautiful suede boots with fringes that I couldn’t even get my legs into. The 80’s, did they even have boots? The 90’s and I’m not going anywhere near tall Doc Martins no matter what colour they were. The turn of the Millennium brought knee-high, pointed toes, skinny calf, spike heel boots – Ha! I said! Ha!

Pirate Boots

The boots I tried on!!!

But here it is 2014 and tall boots are being made with wide calves, low heels, over the knee and size 11. Just for me! Finally I get to buy some for myself. I got a 50% off coupon because it’s my birthday month and when I found these boots I was so excited I almost cried. They have been a fantasy of mine since I was that little girl wanting to be a pirate and these were the boots. I had my skinny jeans on (the jeans not me) and slipped the boots on over them. I stood up. They not only fit, they felt great. I walked over to the full-length, 180° mirror and started to laugh. The boots looked great, I didn’t. They went over the front of my knee and made my legs look so short I looked 4 feet tall. I did not look like a pirate or a cool, fashionable woman or even a wannabe. I looked silly. Oh well, I bought a great sweater and called it a day.

Thanks for listening.  ;D  Diane
