yesterday it rained.

and rained. and rained. like heavy, constant, water... falling from the sky. it was amazing. i've never experienced so much rain in my life.

i was squelching around Soho in my Dunlop Volley's getting really wet, and it was dampening my spirits, so i took my first step towards assimilation and brought...

gumboots!

yes, it's New York chic to get around in a pair of gumboots (or 'rain boots' as they call them). i reckon at least one in every five girls i saw was wearing a pair, and they have all different cool colours and styles.

my gumboots are plain black, but have all these cool buckles on them. i love them and even wore them out to dinner with Blane's parents last night.
