boot blog

Per the suggestion of a friend, I am starting a boot blog. Check back for daily fashion trends featuring my fashionable-all-by-itself- aircast boot.

I've had the lovely accessory in my posession for only 4 days, and so far, because of the boot I've met 3 people, I've seen a complete stranger's leg surgery scars and I had another injured runner/complete stranger tell me about her 10 pound weight gain in the first two weeks that she was injured. She said, and I quote "I'm a bigger girl, so you can't tell as much when I put on weight, but you, Jessi, you won't be able to hide it like I do. Everyone is going to be able to tell." Boy, this boot breaks down personal space bubbles as well as the get-to-know you stage that typically preceeds scar showings and weight gain forecastings.

oh, glory be.

Day 9: Black T-shirt, blue tank, black and grey striped skirt, red cuff watch, black beads, black and white cameo, one black rocket dog flip flop. one forced smile and my gray aircast walking boot. Yes!





Day 6: Red pleated skirt, white T-shirt, blue tank, one white and pink flat and one grey aircast walking boot. H-O-T.




Day 5: At the end of a long day, I sit tired, a little shiny and really aching for a long run. To emphasize the boot today, I chose a black and white horizontal striped T-shirt, a jean skirt, my red cuff watch and one black Rocket Dog flip flop.




Day 4: 80s insipred tee, jean skirt, lavendar tank, red cuff watch, one pink and white flat, one aircast and one of many cups of coffee.



Day 3: Green fitted polo, grey tank, one flip flot, one aircast and one pair of shorts. Why shorts? Because it's a whole lot easier than trying to figure out what to do with my left pant leg.

    Jessi, I second iago--you look great no matter what! Also, at least it's summer so you can wear shorts and skirts :) Hang in there!

    I like Gus's cameo in the second photo. Especially because the boot is bigger than him.

    I can't believe that...someone SAID that to you? Did you kick her in the taco with your airboot?

    Sorry...can I say "kick her in the taco" on your blog? I don't know if that pushes the line of decency too much. But she deserved it, seriously!

    You are a teeny little thing, and you're going to heal before you know it! Don't you listen to mean chicks like that, Jessi. Jealousy rears it's ugly head in strange ways sometimes.

    I've never been all that into fashion shows, but I've got to say, you're carrying this off pretty well. Nice work, and get better fast. :)
