It was a tall boot, just below the knee (not one of those over the knee boots, blech!) with a rounded toe, a stacked, less than 3-inch heel, that laced completely up the front. Certainly that couldn't be hard to find! Well, since they are currently NOT in my closet right now, the search was a complete bust.
So, it was a complete shock to me when the Ugg Australia Fall Preview catalog popped out of my mailbox one afternoon and displayed my perfect boot! As if I designed it myself, there it was!
I'm not saying that I'm amazing or anything, but it does strike me as odd. I search and search for the perfect boot for the 2010 season and it suddenly pops up for 2011. Does this mean I should go into fashion forecasting?
(Note: I do not have a photo of the Ugg boots. They are not yet listed on the e-commerce site)
I remember spending one summer frantically searching for pants that fitted snug at the top but had really wide legs that appeard skirt-like. After that season, goucho pants suddenly appeared everywhere! And, when planning a wedding, I chose navy blue as my main color. A very difficult color to find at the time in the wedding industry, I searched high and low for navy ribbons, navy dresses, navy invitations. The next season, David's Bridal released a new dress color.. "Marine" a deep blue. And, hello? My full-lace dress was chosen long before Kate Middleton made lace popular again!
Coincidence? Or am I due for a career change??? ;)
