“I design like an architect. It’s a beautiful, distinctive art, and shoes are like the foundations. If the foundations aren’t right, the building won’t stand upright, and if a woman’s balance isn’t right, nothing else is.” -Jimmy Choo

Autumn has me on the hunt for boots, sweaters, and coats, and I've slowly been crossing things off my wish list...expect to see lots of Helmut Lang, AllSaints, and Alexander Wang in the next couple of posts. ;) I finally purchased the Jimmy Choo Youth lizard embossed boots from eBay, my new favorite place to shop. I originally wanted the standard leather ones, which are lovely, but I think the simple nature of the boot practically mandates the textural enhancement.


The Youth boot is available in various colors, skins, and textures -  navy suedecamel suedeblue/gray suedeburgundy suedepebbled light gray leatherleopard print, distressed leatherblack crystalbrown leathermetallic graystudded suede, and black waxed suede, to name a few. 

There is also a taller version and models with shearling or with rabbit fur on the inside.

The simple black ones are discounted at BlueFly and Farfetch but are available at full price from Bergdorf'sJimmy ChooNordstromNeiman'sSaks, and Net-A-Porter.
