I'll have Fryes with that ~

If you can love boots, I do love these. This all started about 4 years ago, when we went to Park City, Utah for the first time. Sundance. Cool stores. Western art. Rustic home decor. Handcrafted handbags. Fringes, boots, leather. I haven't been back to Park City since then, but I bet I'll go again.

In the meantime, I started scanning catalogs and looking at boots. After much thought...MUCH thought, I decided on these, the Veronica Slouch, by Frye Boots. They have a soft shaft (not tight on the calf) a small heel, and the leather smells good.

Pricey yes, but oh so gorgeous. I figured I could blow some of my sock drawer stash (birthday money) and order them. They're not sold anywhere near me so I couldn't even try them on. I was a little intimidated by the procedure for breaking them in. Thought I couldn't do it. I even considered sending them back. But I soldiered on (it was love) in a Sundance-induced fog.

It's been a week. They're so much better now. I'm keeping them. Here's a link to the maker:
The Frye Company

Lot of celebrities wear Frye boots. Ree Drummond (The Pioneer Woman) wears them and even gives them away from time to time on her site. This weekend, if you're out at the movies and see "One For the Money" with Katherine Heigel, she is wearing Fryes (saw an ad, Bloomingdales has a give away to tie-in to the movie).

Me, wearing my Fryes.

Handsome, awesome. And they keep my feet warm.

Love. Utah. Park City. Boots. Fryes. Love.

Hi Susan,
I am liking these boot very much! Glad you kept them! Also, thanks for stopping by and thanks for the Kindle cover recommendation, I ordered one yesterday and can't wait to get it. And thanks for the kind words on my quilt project. Honestly, if I can do it you can do it. It's easier than it looks which is why I love it so much!
