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.

Aquarius Calling, Humanity Rising

Aquarius (11th sign after Aries) is the sign of service—serving one another, building community. Aquarius is fixed air, stabilizing new ideas in the world. When new ideas reach the masses the ideas become ideals within the hearts and minds of humanity. Air signs (Gemini, Libra and Aquarius) are mental. They think, ponder, study, research, gather and distribute information. For air signs, education and learning, communicating, writing, being social, tending to money, participating in groups and creating sustainable communities are most important. One of the present messages Aquarius is putting forth to the New Group of World Servers is the creation of the New Education (thus thinking) for humanity—one based not on commodities (banking/corporate values) but on virtues. Humanity and Aquarius Aquarius is the sign of humanity itself. We are now at the beginnings of the Age of Aquarius, the Age of Humanity (rising). The “rising” is the Aquarian vision of equality, unity, the distribution and sharing of all resources and of individual (Leo) creative gifts for the purpose of humanity’s (Aquarius) uplifting. This is the message in the Solar Festival of Aquarius (at the full moon) on Tuesday, Feb. 3. We join in these visions by reciting the World Prayer of Direction, the Great Invocation.Tuesday’s solar festival follows Monday’s Groundhog Day, or Imbolc (ancient Celtic fire festival) the halfway mark between winter solstice and spring Equinox). The New Group of World Servers (NGWS) during these two days are preparing for the upcoming Three Spring Solar Festivals: 1. Aries Resurrection/Easter Festival (April); 2. Taurus Buddha/Wesak Festival (May); and 3. Gemini’s Festival of Humanity (June). Aquarius and the new and full moons together are the primary astrological influences behind all of humanity’s endeavors. The NGWS are to teach these things, calling and uplifting humanity. Join us everyone. (301)
