Marlene tries it
New look - old question. Does it look well on me? How do I carry this? Author Marlene Sørensen dares a fashionable self-experiment every month. Her current test case: Cowboy boots
A few years ago, I was on a trip to America, more specifically: in Utah. Cowboy Country. The trip also included a visit to a horse whisperer. He wore blue jeans, a denim shirt and, of course, cowboy boots. I wore chucks. How I wanted to ride in those, he asked. I said that I do not ride. What I did not say: since I was dropped as an eight-year-old from a donkey. He laughed, and then he galloped away, the dashing horse whisperer.
To be honest: I would rather have sat back on a donkey than to wear cowboy boots. With the former it would have been easier to make a good figure. Even when putting on the boots you have the grace of a cattle, as you get them only with Rumstampfen and with a loud puffing at all over the calves.
If you have them on, you have to realize that the feet have grown by five numbers. That might explain why John Wayne had this very special gear.
Only: At the sight of John Wayne stood men fell in respect of respect the jaw down. At my sight, my friend almost falls over with laughter. I'm thinking for a moment about testing the toe on his butt. But I can barely lift my feet off the ground, they are too heavy. Damn!
Cowboy boots are among the typical garments in which one looks disguised in the wrong environment (also applies to Dirndl outside Bavaria, Friesennerz off the coast).
These boots need dust, horse dung, the width of the prairie. In a big city you can wear what you want - and I've tried everything, yes, also blue jeans and denim shirt - you look like you're about to open a salon door.
It's best to wear them in a pub. After the second beer I ask my friend: "Imagine, you do not know me. How would you react if I talked you into those boots? "" I'd take you right away. "" Really ?! "" Yeah - to buy you new shoes. " Maybe I should keep the boots for a while.
- In the complete western look you go with cowboy boots only for carnival, so please refrain from denim from head to toe.
- With cowboy boots you can kick someone gorgeous in the butt. The least one expects, if one wears a delicate flower dress to the boots.
- In addition to gold jewelry and leather bag the best accessory: a one-way ticket to Utah.
