I Found the 'Golden Goose'


On the heels of my fall-can’t-come-soon-enough commentary from yesterday, I just had to gush over these boots; damn, these would make a perfect addition to my fall wardrobe. How amazing would these babies look striding around Keeneland Race Course during the fall meet?

They are the Golden Goose Charlye Boot and appropriately named because they cost $1,298. The Golden Goose, indeed. Granted, they are handmade and probably feel like a baby’s bottom, but gosh darn it, that’s steep! Oh, well. A girl can dream. :)

Have a wonderful, long weekend everyone. Oh, and before I see adieu for a few days, I’d be remiss if I didn’t give a shout-out to my Kentucky Wildcats who play football against the Louisville Cardinals this weekend. GO BIG BLUE – make me proud, guys!

Love these boots, but the price tag would strangle me, but like you said, a girl can dream.
Have a wonderful Labor Day weekend!

When I saw the image of the boots in my reader I jumped right over thinking, hum, maybe those will be the pair I will get this year. HA! However, they are absolutely perfect, just what I am looking for, and just seeing them helps me accept fall just a tiny bit more!

i have about 6 pairs of those from my riding days.
i wore my riding attire everyday for over 10 years.
i would ride and go straight to work whether it was to a clients home or to the design center.
recently someone ran into me at work and said; " oh, i have never seen you in a dress!"

xxx they are the best boots.
love 'em

You know if he could the Hubby would shower you in $1200.00 boots.

Now those would be great investment and who needs food for a month? Perhaps you can find them 2nd hand? Look in the consignment shops. I know there are some great ones there....

$1200 boots...not so much. I am sure you look much lovlier at Keeneland in a print dress, big hat and pumps...Southside in on hand a a racing form in the other.

Oy...I think they will have to stay on my dream shelf. That's an insane price. Pretty but crazy.

Those boots are lovely. You could always work out some sort of accounting calculation; for instance, if you buy the boots and have them for say 10 years, they really only cost $129.80 a year. Now that is a deal.
Best,
