Most of my shopping needs are filled, but my mom and I aren't seeing each other for Christmas (visiting Mr. C's west coast family instead), so she told me to just order/buy a few items for myself on her behalf, and not to bother waiting to use them.

I'd had my eye on these Angie-recommended "winter" Chucks for MONTHS, but the need became greater because not all my winter boots/shoes work well for me right now, for reasons I've belabored enough on this forum.

Naturally, I wanted black, which will be the most versatile for this NYC lady's wardrobe. I LOVE THEM. They fit large, but that leaves room for both warm socks and my arch support insoles--the latter make them more wearable for me. Some of my current shoes either don't have enough room for the insoles or enough support/padding on their own, but that's no problem here, so I got to keep them!

Here they are in a casual outfit today, along with my other outfits from this week--the Boden striped top and dress already came up in a separate, but I'll put them here for the sake of completion.
