So, this morning, I'm waiting for Redheaded Snippet in the orthodontist's office (one more month to go, the child still isn't wearing her rubber bands properly) and I'm gleefully flipping through November's issue of Country Living magazine. I never buy this magazine as it's just way above me in the cost of the mag itself as well as the looks they feature. Maybe if they came out with a Little Better Than White Trash Living magazine...
Anyway, I never buy it but I do love to look at it. So I'm looking away, inwardly scoffing at the obvious wealth stuffed between the pages and I see something that stops me cold. Wanna know? You won't find it interesting in the least. But I am telling you anyway.
I know what you're thinking, and THEY'RE NOT RAIN BOOTS! They're WELLIES! Or maybe WELLYS (I've seen both spellings though I suspect the former is correct). Don't tell me they're rubber boots or galoshes. They keep your feet dry in wet weather and look darn spiffy while doing it!
Aren't they beautiful? I love them. I have been wanting a pair for so long and these just made me drool. I know, I'm a simple girl with simple tastes. But not so simple because DO YOU KNOW HOW MUCH THESE COST?
Again, despite your obvious disinterest, I'm going to tell you.
L.L. Bean sells their version for $59.
A pair of these, supposed original Hunter Wellington boots will run you $115. I guess because you get to say they were hand made in Scotland!
These kicky pink ones are more reasonable at $35.95.
These are pretty cute and come with a matching tote for $49.95. Still doable.
These are good for a laugh and are only $29.95. Moo!
But these are a little weird, even though a) I do love me some chocolate and b) the price is right at $24.67. I think I'd always be eating chocolate in the rain if I had these.
These are too much in EVERY way! Purple! Paisley! Fur-lined! $69.95!
But these? These are stupendous! Hands-down the winner! I crave these boots! I don't care how much they are! How much? $49.95. Not bad when you're getting a huge pile of AWESOME for your money!
And that was just a sampling, my friends. Go ahead and do a search on Wellingtons, Wellies or even just Rain Boots on Amazon.com. Do it, I dare you! You'll be astounded and amazed!
So now if anyone needs to know what to get me for Christmas, besides a super-duper, easy-to-use digital camera so I can post photos again, I've given you a couple of good ideas. After all, Christmas is only ____ days away!
