Fall is, without doubt, my favourite season. Especially the early fall when the leaves turn red, the sun is warming and the air is fresh, all filled with new possibilities. And let’s not forget what’s amazing throughout the whole season: the fashion. Without really thinking about it, it has become a ritual of mine to add quite a lot of pieces to my wardrobe when summer turns into autumn. I guess it started when I was a kid and had to buy new clothes every fall because I had grown out of my old ones… Back then it was really my mother’s doing, but nowadays I’m happy to do it by myself! (Even though my mother is often out shopping with me…).
This year I started a little early with the shopping when I found the most perfect ankle boots. That kind of shoe is basically what I live in from September to March and is therefore one of the most vital pieces in my closet. Unfortunately my old pair had to be thrown out due to overuse. But when one door closes another opens, right? In addition I was kind of over them anyway, but I hadn’t found a new pair until I found these.
According to me, this is the most perfect ankle boot to ever be designed. The heel is the perfect height in proportion to the rest of the shoe, it’s in a soft material that blends in easily to every outfit whilst still contributing with a bit of attitude and the small details just makes them absolutely stunning. The only thing that might upset many is the fact that they’re not faux. Trust me, I’m a huge animal lover too, and that’s why I want to explain why I’m not feeling worse about buying these shoes than I do.
They’re made out of a cows skin. I eat cows now and then and a couple of cows has most certainly died just to end up on my plate. Though overconsumption of meat is a real problem in today’s world I find it natural for human beings to feed on other animals. We are preditors, even if many of us chooses not to be. But what I would hate is for other parts than the meat of, in this case, the cows would go to waste. Clothing made out of animals we do not eat is not ethically right in my eyes, but this is. We all view things differently and this is my view. Feel free to question it, I’m sure there are perspectives I’ve not yet taken into account which will make me question it too.
Anyway. If you want to get you a pair of these beautiful creations I will link them here. They’re from the brand Kiomi and cost 749 SEK (around 70£, 78€, 92$).
Stay original, gorgeous! xoxo
