your body is not wrong…

This singlet is fabulous! I’d love to wear one at the gym I’ve just joined. Being that it’s a gym the join up was pretty centred around how “great” and “gorgeous” I look – probably because I fit into the narrow range of socially acceptable body sizes and I was wearing long pants so my hairy legs weren’t on show! No matter how much I stressed that I didn’t want to exercise to lose weight or tone up I was still reassured that I looked great. Argh! I have a strong body that needs to be cared for, but the exercise is for my mind more than my body anyway.

I think a trip to the art store for screen printing supplies is in order…

boots

My Vintage Shoe Company boots arrived from the US. I’m pretty stoked with them…

These are the second pair. The first pair were too big so I had to send them back. Postage to the US from Australia is EXPENSIVE!

We measured my foot, we looked at 6 different size charts, we determined that I wear a US size 9 & we ordered the US size 9. Turns out that the VSC “Jennifer” boot runs a bit big. I sent them back & re-ordered the size 8 which are perfect for my size 9 foot!

The leather is very soft & the fit feels comfortable to me. At first they felt a bit stiff in the sole, but they were worn in within a day.

I was disappointed to find out they use lead in the pigment on the leather, but I did some research & found out that it’s common for lead to be used in the manufacture of both real leather & synthetic leather shoes, but it’s just not widely publicised. I’ll be looking specifically for lead-free shoes in future.

All up I’m pretty glad I spent the obscene amount of money on them, they are a well made shoe & I think they’ll last a long time, making the initial expense worthwhile.
