It’s another Dear Marcy! Ask her anything and hope she doesn’t answer…

I recently moved to South Florida from Ohio and could not wear my boots at all this winter.
Like, not even once. It’s that hot down here.
I love my boots but, sadly, had to abandon them.
So instead, I bought a pair of these super rad jeans/boots/sandals type shoes but am stumped as to what to wear them with. Any suggestions? (I mean, they look okay with shorts and tanks which is all anybody wears down here but I’d like something a little more exciting.)

Dear Not Fashionable In Florida,
I do not have a suggestion for you regarding those allegedly “super rad jeans/boots/sandals type shoes.”
Except – to maybe join a super rad country honky tonk band and move to rural Texas because that is the only place those stupid things would make any sense.
Then, I would say pair ’em with a red gingham checked shirt, a ten gallon hat, a belt with a huge gold buckle, a cross necklace, pigtails, and bright pink lipstick.
And a gun.
It’s ok. Texans like guns. (I should know as I am a former Texan. Shhhh…)
And you’ll need that gun to defend yourself when the locals start shooting their own at those allegedly “super rad jeans/boots/sandals type shoes” – right off your feet.
If you decide to not take this advice then please feed them to the alligators. Because Floridians will laugh at you.
And trust me, the last thing you need is Floridians in their shorts and tanks laughing at you.
P.S. Here’s a really cute red gingham checked shirt!

My answer to “what do I wear with these” super ugly shoes would’ve been, A noose. There’s a reason you’re doing this and I am not. Perhaps I should ask you to post this comment anonymously?
Ahahahaha – you are having a stronger reaction to those shoes than Marcy!! No worries “Eileen” 😉 your anonymity is safe with me!
I am honestly stumped on how I feel about these. I mean, I love wearing jeans and flip flops! The picture almost looks like a little gnome wearing jeans and flip flops. I think I want these shoes to work in some way, somewhere but I can’t come up with anything. It’s such a weird combination, I want to know more about the person who cam up with this!
Here’s the website of the woman who makes them https://www.danikfashion.com/
She’s from Israel and lives in Southern California – Laguna Hills I think. She sells on Etsy too and has sold a ton of them and has good reviews. Who knows – maybe they will catch on? I go back and forth from thinking they are ridiculous to thinking they are kind of awesome.
And they’re vegan too, so there’s that.
Ahhhh… that’s right, Vik! I was going to emphasize that at one point but forgot! Gotta love that!
I picture these with Cynthia’s denim culottes, hoping the culotte hem would just meet the tippy top of the boots. For a shirt, I suggest something tight and low-cut to distract and further confuse the astounded observer.
I get shit for a romper, and someone created jean-boot-thongs????
Thank you, Marcy, for having the decency to tell her these are unacceptable. You’re wrong, though. The alligators wouldn’t go near these, and those bastards like orange circus peanuts.
In other words, I agree with “Eileen.” 🙂
(Cute gingham shirt, though!)
Sorry for the vitriol…
Cindy — one day, when I’m in a better mood, I’m going to buy a pair of those on the inevitable 70% off clearance rack they’ll be on, then wear ’em out the next time we get drinks. Heh heh heh…
LOL!!! I am cracking up over all of the comments about these shoes. Freddy put my post up on Facebook and it got even more of a reaction than here. lolol I’m going to change their name to “Visceral Reaction Boots”!
Well, if you change the name, they’d at least have a shot at selling a pair… 😛
The thing is – she has sold A LOT of them an has received rave reviews too! lol
Oh my. I have not seen these. Are they seriously a thing? And not an infomercial product?
I’m all for walking the clothing-or-costume line, but I don’t even know what costume these would be a part of. Marcy is quite kind with her assessment of who would wear these things and what would result. As a frequent honky tonk tourist, I’m not sure these would fly on even the drunkest nights at Tootsie’s.
Thanks for this? lol I’ll have to show Kyle and tell him I ordered them for myself.
LOL! If you do pretend to Kyle that you bought them I would love to hear his reaction! lololol Too bad April Fools Day is an entire year away!
WOW, these are crazy! I’ve never seen anything like them. They’re very unique.
Aren’t they crazy? I go back and forth between thinking they are awesome to thinking they are hideous and back again!
That’s funny that you flip flop back and forth between crazy awesome to hideous. Because they’re so unique that’s an understandable reaction. If a person thinks they’re hideous 100% of the time they might be narrow minded or have no fun fashion sense. I bet you ROCK them.
Ha! Thank you! 🙂
