aldo adoration

my new love.
the piontek from aldo
a clog/construction boot/hiking boot hybrid with a cozy knit lining, swoon.
these were love at first sight when i spotted them in teen vogue's september issue while at the cottage. i finally tracked them down today (they apparently have sold out in a lot of stores) and i can't wait to spend my fall in them, comfortable, adorable and 140$can.

furthermore, i must say that i think aldo changed their sizing because these are an 8 and the last time i bought aldo shoes i had to return them because the 9 was snug. has anyone else noticed that? i'm also in love with those hunter lace ups above, dark green and a gum sole, yum.

they look beautiful!
I noticed the sizing, it varies so much.
I'm usually a 38 there. Recently the 38 I tried on was too tight so I had to get the 39s.
It's weird but oh well. :)

Really cute! Loving the Hunter ones too!
And I totally agree about the French-Vogue-instant-gratification-blogosphere thing... by the time we get the magazine it's already old news and you feel like you're reading a three month old issue! Maybe if the actual magazine was like a pop-up book the excitement would remain? (Okay, so I have this thing where I think all books would be improved if they were made into pop-up books, from medical texts to the phonebook. Do people still use the phone book?)
