Ascending Butterfly's All Treats No Tricks Countdown to Halloween Giveaway Sponsored By:

Our weather here has been nuts, it started getting rainy and cooler, and then got hot again. This past weekend was very much 'Indian Summer' here, but having lived in NYC all my life I know just how quickly the weather changes. I am not willing to compromise on style just because the weather turns. And I also need boots that are 'commuter city friendly'. There's a lot of walking that happens in this city (and trains which means lots of stairs too).

I'm a boot lover, I love boots as much as I love handbags and I definitely found this years 'favorite pair'. Not too short, not thigh highs, but just like in the Goldilocks and The Three Bears tale, these boots are 'just right'. The weather hadn't even turned when the boots arrived, but I was like a kid at Christmas who wants to play with their new toy all day long! I have worn them almost constantly since I received them and I love them! I haven't found any outfit they don't match with, and most importantly I don't have to sacrifice form for function, they are equal parts comfortable and pretty! And for those girls who are 'wide' or 'athletic' calves, you'll be happy to know these fit  me well and I'm wide calf myself.

About 'The Prance' Boot

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Equestrian inspired, two-tone, tall-shafted boot

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ -  Full-length inner zipper

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Faux-shearling lining

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Patented “negative heel” sole

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - MSRP: $225.00 (USD)

My Take:

Pictured Above: Ascending Butterfly at Bridesmaid DVD release party wearing The Prance Boot!

In the picture above I am wearing my Prance boots to the DVD release party for Bridemaids! It was a rainy and cool evening, and these were just perfect. I was on my feet quite a bit and when I got home my feet were not even tired!

These are available in Black and a brown color called 'Almond' and I can tell you I am going back for them in Brown, I love them that much!

And if you are thinking 'Deja Shoe', you would be right, I've worked with Earth Footwear before, here are my reviews for the Talera shoes (perfect heels for work or play with comfort footbed) and the Veria shoes (these are so perfect for an evening out, and that red is totally a head turner, I LOVE these shoes and always get compliments when I wear them). I've got to admit that my Prance boots are edging older pairs out, I find myself reaching for these first. With Earth Shoes I have to half size up from normal shoe size, it somehow works out better for me regardless of whether or not it's a heel or a flat. (Remember, that may or may not apply to you, but I always like to share my full experience with a product).

You didn't think I'd forget about you right? Who loves you butterfly?

Wordless Wednesday - Bridesmaid DVD Event Launch!

Last night I attended the Bridesmaid DVD Launch Event, hosted by NBC Universal and YellowTail Wines and I had a great time! I almost thought I wasn't going to make it, as The President was about to give a speech and the streets were all blocked off! But us industrious and persistent New Yorkers always find a way!

Here are some pictures from the event!

Pictured Above: Check out the cute high heel shoe floral centerpieces at the tables, candle light and a glass of Yellow Tail Wines Sparkling White!

Pictured Above: Guests were asked to bring in Bridesmaid Dresses they no longer cared for and the dresses were donated to help benefit The Glass Slipper Project. In the photo above Kiymet Lale who manages Custom Coutere Alterations for Hallak Cleaners is altering a dress. How she managed to do such precise work amidst so  many people was amazing to watch!

Pictured Above: Dresses that were used in the Bridesmaid Movie were on display for photo opps!

Pictured above: Left, is Carolina Bermudez, evening event emcee and Radio Personality, Right is yours truly, Ascending Butterfly!

During the event mini spa treatments were offered, never seen movie footage was shown, and there were 'bouquet tossings' where guests had a chance to win prizes (unfortunately I never caught a bouquet, much like during real life weddings!)
