Okay, NOW Purple Has Definitely Gone Too Far

Yesterday's post (and today's purchase) notwithstanding, I feel pretty confident that these purple boots will NOT be purchased by me or anyone with a modicum of taste:

Charles Nolan "Kelsey" boots, $148. I am going to go on record and say that any type of ruffle at the top of a boot is unacceptable. Go ahead, contradict me! I bet you won't.

ChloƩ paneled shoe-boots, $895. A classic hot mess.

Philosophy di Alberta Ferretti ankle boots, 370 pounds. Where to start?

Marc Jacobs butterfly shoe-boots, $895. For Mariah Carey, NOT for you.

Steve Madden purple suede boots, $149.95. Again with the butterfly!

Georgina Goodman "Felix" ankle boot, $947.95. Who? Wha? How much?

Sam Edelman "Utah" boots, $199. We've already established the Binge's position on fringe, so this commentary should go without saying: no.

Jump "Bjork" boot, $128.95. Not sure which is more hurtful to my senses, Bjork's screeching or these monstrosities.

You by Crocs "Fabulous Fashionista" boots, $280. Still don't get Crocs' high-end line: A company that brought you $30 rubber shoes is trying to now sell me $300 boots? I don't think so.

And now, so that the last image I leave you with doesn't have you retching, here's a not-totally-hein pair of purps:

Aldo "Froling" booties, $130. Better yet: You can get 'em in gray.

Those Georgina Goodman booties burned my eyes.

I kind of don't mind those Jump boots. But then, I do like Bjork, too.

This cracked me up.
