What if you spent every day looking for One Beautiful Thing?

Etsomnia™ 166: Getting the Boot


At first, I thought the $400+ price tag ridiculous. But since healthcare may not cover birth control, and these would most certainly prevent pregnancy, maybe $400 isn’t so crazy

Et·som·ni·a (/etˈsämnēə/), noun, 1. a sleep disorder caused by obsessive Etsy browsing. 2. The surprising arrival of weird handmade merchandise ordered when one is only half conscious. (True story.) 3. An excuse for me to be an obnoxious, snarky New Yorker once per week.

Boy, oh boy, do I love boots, even when they’re extra. (It’s a constant struggle for me to tone it down.) When they’re good, they’re very, very good. And when they’re bad, they’re Etsy!

I am not an Uggs person, and this is too much bling for me, but they’re very well done, and I imagine someone will love them! By Newcrystalwave

Traditional Columbian Mola boots are beautiful. This is the “hipster” version. Hipsters ruin everything.

Can someone tell me why?

So adorable! By GbshoesBoutique

Will Etsy sellers never figure out that homeless chic isn’t going to catch on? (I hope.)

I sometimes suspect that half of the items on Etsy are made by 11-year-old girls who love pink

“Festival boots.” Maybe if the festival is being held here…

Hand-painted vegan Doc Martens! I’m in love! By SheTalksToRainbows

If you spot your intended coming down the aisle sporting these wedding booties, my advice is run! I doubt she’ll be able to catch you…

While I would immediately go lame and need to be put down, I wish I could wear them! By LightningCosplay

Gluing stupid pink pompoms onto innocent, nice-looking green booties seems to me like a hate crime

I have committed to spending part of every day looking for at least one beautiful thing, and sharing what I find with you lovelies!

  1. The Doc Martens are dreamy. Everything on her site is dreamy which is expected with a name like She Talks to Rainbows. (Did you see her mermaid shoes?)

  2. Hate crime, indeed. And 11-y-o pink-loving tweens is pretty spot on. 😉

  3. About these hoof boots….this may be how they did Tumus in the video The Lion,the Witch and the Wardrobe of Narnia fame. (Love that movie) the ones with the flowers on the sole????I would hate to mess them up. lol

  4. Those pearl covered Uggs……why are they so compelling? Shouldn’t be, and yet……

  5. Bet Chanel doesn’t love the you-KNOW-for-sure-unauthorized use of their logo on this UGG-ly boots!

  6. You are so right about crazy kids with access to craft cupboards and hot glue guns being feasibly responsible for so much of Etsy’s wares. I do love those DMs though and would totally wear those.

  7. I live around some super conservative christians who know I’m not religious, and I once heard them calling me a “goat” (a reference which means I’m not going to heavenly realm). So sometimes I like to walk around the neighborhood in a T-shirt with a cute, friendly, smiling goat on the front. If I added those cool hoof boots, I’d anticipate someone running up to me and throwing holy water on me! It’d be totally worth breaking my ankle over. 😀
