Accessorizing the red suede over the knee thigh high DSW JLO boots

My DSW JLO Jennifer Lopez red suede boots are about ready to become unwearable. They are beginning to sag and droop. So, I thought I would try one last look with them before I retire them. What I really wanted to do was an all white outfit post but I couldn’t risk increasing my AfterPay balance. I need to get that paid off before I make any new purchases. I was eyeing a pair of Steve Madden white faux leather thigh high over the knee boots. Hopefully by the time I pay off the balance there will still be a pair available.

So I got all dressed up yesterday and filmed some footage of myself strutting around out front. Well, I guess I should not say that I got all dressed up. Because my outfit hardly classifies as dressing up. Everything is old and really should’ve been thrown out by now. But you know how it is. Or maybe you don’t.

Since I could not afford to get the Steve Madden boots. I decided to do another post with the red suede boots. Because they have lost their luster, I had to accessorize them to try to make them look a little more alive. The gold chain accessories are a couple of necklaces wrapped around the ankles of the boots.

I personally think the chains gave the boots new life. So that, to me, is one way a dying pair of faux suede thigh high over the knee boots could be rejuvenated— by adding some accessories. I even tried wrapping a satin sash around the whole leg. I thought that was looking interesting as well. Maybe if I can find some better satin than what I was using I might even do a third look with these boots just to illustrate some ways that you could breathe new life into a dying pair of suede thigh high over the knee boots.

If I’ve never said before, I’m not a fashionista. I’m not trying to influence anyone’s style sense. I just don’t have the closet for that. What I am is just a person and I cannot go out my house without clothes on. Everybody’s got to wear clothes. Not everybody is into clothes. But whether you’re into clothes or not you have to wear clothes and you have to choose clothes to wear.  I enjoy putting on clothes and taking pictures and making videos and just having a little fun with my life. It activates joy inside to play dress up the 21st century big girl way. Not everything that I put on is going to be something that everybody’s going to be loving. And sometimes I’m going to put on things that are just obviously ready to be put in the trash bin. I think the skirt I’m wearing is trash bin ready. I’ve had it for several years and, like the boots, it has lost its luster.

Singer songwriter Adelamonica AKA Avenue Sixty editor in chief. Writing as Monica for The Monica Archives. Writing has always been one of my passions. In fact, when I was a teenager, I used to tell people they should remember my name, because I was going to become a famous author. I used to live to write and write to live--not in the sense of writing for income but writing to combat depression and to feel a sense of purpose. I've written novels, poems, articles and essays that I tried unsuccessfully to get published over many years starting in my teens. When I discovered blogging several ages ago, I turned to that avenue as a means of doing what I love without having to worry about publishers and their rejection letters. Modeling is also something I have always enjoyed and something I wanted very badly to do as a teenager. So badly that I used to lie and tell people I was a model. I would carry around a large portfolio style photo album and claim it was my modeling portfolio. But, as with my writing, the people with the power to make my modeling dreams come true saw nothing in me that made them stop me in the streets of New York to offer me a modeling contract with their agency. So when I discovered the ability to photograph my own self (before cell phones and selfies) I took up a hobby of pretend modeling at home and that hobby has remained with me throughout my life as a form of self expression and self therapy. I ask that you kindly excuse my lack of worldliness and any instances where I demonstrate lack of tact or lack of knowledge and even lack of basic intelligence in my writing and posing. I'm just here trying to have a little fun doing the things that make me happy. I'm just an average human for whom writing and posing and singing and dancing and the other things I do are ways I express myself and keep myself going on this ever challenging journey of life. I hope you will find something even remotely useful or interesting in the things I share.
