Love Boots!



It's Valentine's Day so put on your foxy red love boots and boogie the night away!!  I have been looking at these snazzy boots in the window of Zoe's for weeks.  Zoe's is a funky little consignment shop specializing in vintage wear.  The shop is in my neighborhood and I love driving by and seeing all the outrageous/nostalgic clothing displayed in their windows.  Yesterday I popped in and took these photos.  Happy Valentine's Day everyone!

How would you look in Paris with those V? Stylish darling!!! You make us all feel like Valentines - every day - thanks for the beautiful things you share with us!

Kate said...

Every woman should have a pair of red shoes...at least that's what my mother told me. But, red boots! Now that's really jazzy!!

USelaine said...

You know, those are so YOU, V! What you really need to do is wear them in Paris...

nessabates said...

those are really cool boots! I could never wear them because I am such a klutz. I would fall on my face or break an ankle...sexy, huh? lol

JM said...

I love both shots! So very cool! These 'ladies' are fantastic! :-)
Have a happy day!

Jérôme said...

This is serious stuff! They practically glow in the dark :)

Thérèse said...

Fabulous!
Not for me this year I have a broken pinky toe!

Bibi said...

They are definitely red! But I don't think I'd love to wear them---painful? The mannequins are great, too!

altadenahiker said...

Love the mannequin photo. Those faces are much more fun than the traditional ones. (The ones in Sears give me nightmares.)

Virginia said...

Thanks guys but I must bow to our own Eric at Paris DP today. His photo definitely wins the prize for Valentine's Day. Whew!!!!!! Expect your monitor to steam up.

Oh wow. I really love these mannequins in the last picture. They are so cool. Wow. I used to work in Window Display when I hitchhiked to Tucson, Arizona. Back in 1952.

I also like the red boots. I can see some perky ladies wearing them. They almost instantly reminded me of that sexy commercial about the pajamas the men are supposed to send the ladies.

Oh my goodness - perfect for VAlentine's Day. Not sure it's love but certainly lust...

Great red boots - you'd not be missed wearing those!

Dusty Lens said...

Happy Valentine's Day! Oh my, but what shall I wear with these shoes??!!

Marie-Noyale said...

Aren't you gonna look sassy in those boots!!!
Happy Valentine's day.

Wayne said...

I sure like the red colour of those boots but I don't know where I'd get away with wearing them.

The mannequins remind me of Modigliani paintings.

This banner works for me but Spring is still a ways off here at the North Pole.

Kim said...

Virginia, Wayne's comment has me laughing hysterically. Oh my. Doc Martin's in red patent leather, classic 80s backup singer wear. And you even show us the back up singers, with their "doo doodoo doodoo doo doodoo doo doodoo doodoo doo doodoo. . . take a walk on the wild side. . . (w/ thanks to Barbara R. who 'sang' this on her VDP blog the other day) :-)

Laurie said...

I want those boots. Seriously!

Virginia said...

Laurie I can run down and get the boots for you but it looks like you'll have to go the mat with Wayne for 'em.



Kim, I guess it was my inner back up singer coming out today! BTW, I had to get up in the front window to get the girls in all their snooty glory! I guess I was a sight from the street!

marley said...

They are some serious boots! Wow!

Babooshka said...

I used to wear'em. Hell I still would. I have no sense of age. Interestingly I have a red bag that is a ringer fro those boots. They are made for walking my way.

Virginia said...

W,
No, No, No. They're not YOU!

B,
Girl I knew you had some without even asking.

They're not for me. Lord I"d fall and break something.

Kim said...

Virgina, I'm just imagining you up in the window. . .hope you had "put on your red dress, mama, and your wig hat on your head" ;^)
Say, I just noticed your trip to France this summer and it sounds exciting! My daughter is heading for Portugal about then and it would be fun if I could head over with you. I know it would be a great time. I'll have to check the dates. Do folks need to bring their laptops for the studio parts? Good for you that you're going in this direction. I've often thought of leading photo walking tours here, but life's been too much in the way of that the past couple years.

Virginia said...

Kim ,Come join us. If you don't have a laptop we can work with that for sure!!!. I think having you along would be FABULOUS! I am so excited to be able to visit that part of France that I haven't seen or photographed before.
Email me.

Wow, those boots look like they're going to walk all over someone :-) Great choice for Valentine's Day.

Jacob said...

Those boots are the best! Great colors. Did you buy them?

Greensboro Daily Photo said...

Great image for Valentine's Day. Coming to the comment section was all worthwhile, just to read what Abe Lincoln said!!!

Wow! Those boots are awesome! I was flying back from Mexico on V-Day, however, so I don't think they would have been a good thing to wear that day.
