I bought more shoes.
They are so baggy on the calf of the model that I think even I will be able to get these over my calves. Not too equestrian, not too fashion-y, and will look so much better with a skirt and leggings than my Chucks. It will get cold before I manage to get a working pair of mary janes. (Note to self, MUST call the mary jane people and discuss my sad state of affairs.)
They get here in 4-5 working days.
