First up, the weather in Chicago has been uniformly dreadful – bitterly cold. But my feet has NOT been cold when I was out, and that’s because I wear Bogs boots. I wear them with nothing but tights on my feet, and my feet don’t get cold. Ever. It’s amazing.
They’re not sleek,and they’re not elegant, but when you’re dressed in 14 layers of clothing and you look like a walking boudin noir, warmth is all you care about, really.
I’ve stumbled upon a new internet site where one can sell or purchased clothes: thredup.com. They send you a bag in which you can send them clothes, and then they sell them and give you a bit of a share of the proceeds. You’re not going to get rich from this, but it’s a pretty effortless way to clean out your closets. I’m curious to see how it all turns out – I’m sending them some thing… I’ll let you know. And I see some things for sale there that look really inexpensive – it might be a very sensible place to purchase something that you don’t need to wear more than once or twice. If you have any experiences with thredup, be sure to share!
One final update – don’t ever let Google automatically create your hyperlinks, or your every misspelling will be immortalized forever…
