    Very true! LOL. That boot's full price turns into a less than the deposit for what I'll most likely order. hahaha

    See, I advise you get something in suede from EG instead.


    I know you have those unlined suede boots on order, however if you order something else in suede from EG you would make @Leaves happy and I might stand a chance of getting in his good graces again. LOL

    Suede Dover, that's it get a Suede Dover.

    He should get the suede dover and add on the the uwing boot to take advantage of free shipping. Shipping is 50 bucks by itself and the boot is only 100!you're saving money by buying more.

    Yes, it's EG's stock model 888 last Westminster. They are definitely darker than i expected, but still fantastic looking, no complaints. Fit is good as well, which is quite a relief.

    What fit changes can i expect on the 82 or 202 last in comparison to this 888 last? Still planning to order a couple of Shanklins next month, just haven't decided on last...

    Is Carmina's polo suede as red as G&G's? (G&G's is too red for me.)

    do it! there are so many variables that can "break" a make-up. if this one is up your alley, you have to buy it! do it! youll live under a mountain of regret if you dont. like a dwarf but without the gold

    Particularly true when that makeup is for saddle shell in the middle of a serious shell shortage.
