The Perfect Boot

blog_boot1Obsessive Beauty is giving away a secret—this is by far the best boot we’ve seen on the market right now—the Greenbees Erma Boot. You can find it online at various stores, including Santa Cruz’s own oakandco.com, and Saffron and Genevieve in the Oak & Co pop up shop up through March. Selling for $269, here’s why we’re obsessed with it: as an admittedly thick-legged gal, I have a hard time fitting into most boots, as they seem to be made for the skinny leg crowd. But not these—the Greenbees Erma Boot, in the color “coal,” has a wide enough opening to accommodate those with large legs, as well as our pin thin friends. It’s a rare boot that can look lovely on all body types. You can tuck your jeans into these boots, wear them with leggings or tights, pair with a dress or skirt; the options are unlimited. The style is yet another winning factor—these boots are somewhere between a work boot and a western boot—perfect for walking, shopping, dressing up or down, wearing in rainy weather, and so on. According to the oakandco.com description, the shoes have “recycled tire soles,” and “the richly colored leather is processed traditionally, without heavy metals or formaldehyde. … Handmade, fair trade, in Mexico.”

Although the rainy season might soon be leaving us, and fall fashion is saying good-bye, these are boots that you can wear throughout the year. They’re timeless, “green,” exquisite, and fashionable.

 


To view the Greenbees Erma Boot, visit oakandco.com/collections/acc-shoes/products/erma-boot. Or, visit Saffron and Genevieve, 901B Soquel Ave., Santa Cruz. All Oak & Co products will be discounted 20-50 percent on Jan. 29 at Saffron and Genevieve, and the Greenbees Erma Boot will be discounted 20 percent.

The organizers of TEDx Santa Cruz don’t just talk about this year’s theme, ‘radical collaboration’—they live it

 

Pluto Retrograde, Aries New Moon, Lyrid Meteor Showers

As the Lyrid meteors, radiating from the star Vega in the Harp constellation, begin showering heaven and earth with light, Pluto, planet of transformation (or die) turns stationary retrograde (Thursday, April 16), 15 degrees Capricorn. Retrogrades have purpose, allowing humanity time to review, reassess, research and reinvent while returning to previous situations. Retrogrades are times of inner activity, seeds sown in bio-dynamically prepared soil. Pluto retrograde is the most serious and resolute of retrogrades—a pure tincture, or, as in homeopathy, a “constitutional” touching the essences of all that matters. Pluto offers deep insight into confusion or puzzlement and areas where transformation is still incomplete. It’s valuable to have one’s astrology chart to follow what area of life the major planets— especially Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto—are influencing. These outer planets have long-term and lasting effects on our psyche, inner/outer life events, how people see us and how we see and process our world. Pluto, retrograde for five months (until Sept. 24) offers deep earthquakes of change, awakens humanity to the task of building (Capricorn) the new culture and civilization, flailing our inner world about, deepening us until we transform and do things differently. Pluto is an unrelenting teacher. New moon (29 Aries) is Saturday, April 18. With the personality-building keynote, “Let form again be sought.” Mars anchors the new creative fires of Aries into our world. The New Group of World Servers participates together in the new moon festival, while also preparing for the Taurus Wesak, Buddha Full Moon Festival (May 3). Join us everyone.
