I Am A Winner

I actually won a giveaway!
  I was so shocked to find out that I won.  
I usually don't win things.  Well, I think once I won a pair of
fake Ray Bans back in the late 80's.
Are you dying to know what I won and where??? 
I won a $100 gift card from Shopbop .
  I won over on Jill's blog...Spoils of Wear.  
Thanks! Jill!
It took me awhile to figure out what I wanted, 
ah who am I kidding? 
I wanted BOOTS! 
It took me awhile to narrow down my choice is what I should have said.
  So here are my new boots....
 I Love them.  They are gray and oh so comfy!
 I wouldn't have set out looking for over the knee boots, but I just fell in love with these. 
I know there is controversy relating to an over 40 woman wearing high boots.

I think they look just fine.
  I mean really, it's not like they are shiny leather with a spike heel and I am in a red see thru negligee or hot pink mini skirt.
  I say a woman over 40 can pull them off.
 The shirt I am wearing is navy blue with ruffles and sequins. 
I decided that all of this dark blue needed a little color.
I love pink and gray together and since my new boots were gray...
I decided on pink jewelry.

Have you ever won anything fabulous??
I'd love to hear about it.

Oh gosh, I have so much to do today and I can't seem to break away!

Your boots are awesome. What's the controversy? I think if you have the figure and the right look then go for it!

You may clobber me, but I did a little fashion post today and you are included!

Congrats on winning the giveaway. The boots are an excellent choice...and I've never heard that rule about women over 40. Could be I'm just deaf, at my age.

I hope you are staying warm!

Ok, so when will you be over 40 years old? hmm?

Deborah said...

Very nice!

That controversy over what women of an age should wear? Patooy! You have good instincts. Trust them!

Sarah {Raving Fashionista} said...

Congrats!!! That's so exciting :)

Yvonne said...

I am interested to know what the controversy is about women over 40 wearing over the knee boots. I am not quite over 40 yet - but I have a collection of tall boots.
I think you and your boots look FABULOUS!!
Forget the controversy - give 'em something to talk about. I promise it will be how great those look on you!

Molly said...

So glad you aren't buying that boot ban nonsense! These are so beautiful and look fantastic on you. Super chic.
The fact that you WON them make them even better!! Congrats.
Leaving the House in THIS?!?!
