Hi all I have a fashion problem. My style has been subtly changing over time. Last year you all helped me choose my moniker “Sassy Shoemaker’s Elf” but I have been musing on changing it to “Crisp Consultant” this year as I have felt a shift coming... maybe I am finally growing into my age ( heading towards 60 years old) or feeling a little more gravitas with the year 2020 has been?
And two of my most loved boots ever, are not inspiring me this year.
1. Steve Maddens, bought in Union Square San Francisco at DSW in 2013 on my only trip there. Fell in love and worn 72 times but not at all this year. Made me feel like an ageing rock chick and were fun. A girl in a thrift store later admired them and said she didn’t believe in moderation!
2. Beau Coops cobalt patent, made in Italy bought here 2015. My most worn ever at 111 times but only 3 of those times this year, and there are only a few more weeks of boot season. Still complimented by strangers this year, but really scuffed which I dislike.
3. (Not boots but...) Black croc loafers bought end of February this year. Love. 51 wears since then! Pointy and crisp, but with bling.
4. Olive boots, searched for over a year to find this HEWI. Bought May, 18 wears already. Spanish.
5. After looking at these all winter, I bought them this week. They feel like a more subdued replacement for the cobalt. Minx brand, NZ designed.

2. and 3. Scuffs on Beau Coops.
4. 2020 olive boots and black loafers
5,6,7 new Minx boots
8. WIW on Wednesday.
What do I do? Do I edit the old ones, saying goodbye and thank you? Will I be sad?
Please give me the forum wisdom! xx
