The coldest peakThursday, December 05, 2013
Yeah, yeah, yeah, we all know about Alyssa's black ankle boot fetish. And maybe it's becoming a little excessive at this point, but you know, whatever (cue teen angst). Ever since discovering the versatility and practicality of black ankle boots, I have always felt as if I were on some mystic journey to find the pair of boots. I'm talking about the pair that is delivered to you on the back of a unicorn while an orchestra plays monumental music and shooting stars race across the sky in a coordinated dance to spell out "YOU'VE MADE IT". Well, seeing my boots arrive in their Jeffrey Campbell box from Capezio's vast sea of shoes was essentially the same thing. After having owned these boots for less than 48 hours, I can happily and confidently declare that I walked a whole 9 hours in these boots without contracting one single blister. Yeah, you heard me.
Also, I switched my iPhone 4 case. Now, now, it's not the end of the world or anything, but now my case has dual purposes. It protects my precious chunk of metal and serves as a reflecting surface to blind passerbys. You can also have awkward staring contests with yourself. Double the fun! But on a serious note, this reflective case (which is essentially a portable mirror that just so happens to encapsulate your phone) has proven to be SUPER useful thus far (adios makeup smudges), so thanks to Deanna from Zero Gravity for the lovely case. FYI, Zero Gravity has a plethora of cases for iPhones, Galaxy S4/S3s, iPODs and iPADs, some with bacon on them, and some with cats. I can't really decide which is better.
