Okay, so I love my new boots so much that I had to have another pair. (Yes, I know, I'm a shoe freak, yet seem to live in sneakers.)  But you know how it is: one must have black AND brown: a black heel, a brown heel; a black bag, a brown bag; a black belt, a brown belt. Even guys understand this. Therefore, black boots beget brown boots.

This time I visited Cavender's. I'm very happy to say I found the brown version of my boots, along with a black belt with a snazzy silver buckle. (I'd already found a brown furry belt in Paris.) Since I was carting around one big box and didn't want another, I asked was a way to travel with my boots? Why, yes ma'am, we have boot bags! Luckily, I found out there were plain canvas bags before leaving the store with the pimpy leather ones that looked like a bad 70s patchwork purse; you know, the ones that looked like they were stitched together under a haze of hash or something? I turned down the boot trees, and they didn't have any boot shapers for the leg, but now my boots - which are accessories - officially have their own accessories: boot bags.

Well, that night I did a little research and found out that, yes, I did need boot trees. Otherwise, when I take them off and they're nice and warm, the toes might curl up as they cool. The boot trees prevent that, and I don't do elf boots, so back to Cavender's I go. Now my boots have another accessory: snazzy cedar boot trees.

And, after a visit to Bed, Bath & Beyond, my boots have their final accessory: boot shapers.

Whew! What I need now is the ultimate accessory: a cute cowboy to carry all this crap to my truck. Yes, ma'am!

P.S.  Here are the ultimate boots I'd love to have: Ain't gonna happen.

these boots are made for walkin'
Aunt Ruby: It's been so long since I went dancing that I'd have to sip a little tequila first, and then I wouldn't be able to drive! Maybe I can just go hang out at a dance hall and pick up a cowboy with my dazzling personality... and my hot boots! :-) I'll have to wear a skirt so they show.

Michelle: Hey, girl, so glad you've joined us! I really wish we could've gone for barbecue that night, but maybe you can meet me down the road somewhere. So much chatting to do, so little time...
