Tokidoki Chooka Rainboots!5:55 PM
Like I've mentioned before, the weather here is CRAZY. Lately it has been snowy, slushy, cold, and generally gross. So naturally, I decided it was necessary to accommodate myself with some appropriate footwear. (*cough* excuse *cough)
I've been eyeing these Tokidoki Chooka rainboots for a while now since I was happy to see they come in kids' sizes. Sadly, I don't fit anywhere near the taller women's style as they start at a size 6 and run a size large! I ordered these leopard print ones from zappos.com though and as tacky and busy as they are, I LOVE them. As my friend Jenny said, "How can you not love them? They have a cloud throwing up lightning!"
I just ordered them on Saturday and Zappos decided to upgrade my shipping to priority for free so I literally just got them today. They are a size 1, and they fit just about perfect on my smaller-size-4-womens' feet.
Another exciting thing that happened today was that I found out I won the much coveted Hello Kitty fauxnad plate from the awesome Polish Pixie. I have been looking for this plate everywhere on Ebay and got rejection upon rejection message from sellers! I was floored because I absolutely never win anything. Shipping will take a couple weeks since the pixie herself resides in Denmark, but when I get the plates I promise I will do a Konad nail tutorial for you guys. :D I cannot wait!
Here is a pic taken from polishpixie.blogspot.com. Kitty is on the right.
Also, to compound the awesomeness of the moment, has everyone seen this photo of a pink dolphin? It's REALLY, REALLY pink. I feel like I should scream really quietly in happiness. It got its coloration from albinism. Who knew!
While I try to contain my enthusiasm, you must tell me your thoughts on rainboots (or pink dolphins). Are they awesome, lame, necessary, cute, ugly? Do you have a pair? Let me know in the comments!
