Dolli's Boots Report

The following is a review from prettidolli (if you read my comments you will know this hilarious creature called dolli) who so generously took time out of her day to visit Payless and try the boots I had posted in a previous post.Thanks Dolli you are a real trooper!

So I guess I's de trying orn lady....Yuh gyul Dolli went to Payless fuh allyuh primarily b/c I'm a tramp for Airwalks; I wore them RELIGIOUSLY when I was in High School. Imagine, I dey in de States and Saucy in TNT and know about Payless w/ Airwalks and TJ Maxx, etc. LOL! I love Airwalks, they were a staple of the skater crew and I was so happy to see them upgrade to these stylish boots. They are lightweight and offer nuff foot support so allyuh jammettes can lift up yuh leg, cock back n roll, and do yuh foot pon shoulder ting. And yes, I tried these positions out in de store mirror w/ people watching me. I told 'em I was a dancer...Steups. Like I keh. They come in red, black, tan, and a dirty brown color. The only problem some folks might have is with the lacing as some may not prefer to have their lower legs tie up so. But on the other hand, the Minnetonkas tie allll the way up and folks don't seem to have a problem with that! I've worn Minnetonkas as a pre teen (my first pair were blue)and still do, but they are verrrry flat and don't offer much in terms of foot support and protection. My mother never allowed me to wear them when it was too cold, icy, or if the ground was wet. One HAS to add the soles for stabilization and comfort. Thank heaven for Dr Scholls! I totally believe the story about someone's foot being injured with glass with these on. Please folks, I know they come in all sorts of colors now, but can we reserve them for the Indian mas? ENOUGH ALREADY! Well, is allyuh money....

I also tried on some other calf high and knee high black boots that were comfy but would need plenty of breaking in b4 Carnival to do their job best. They were very similar to the pics of the black boots Saucy posted. So if yuh want cheap, affordable, but not necessaily cheap looking allyuh could hit up Payless. It ent bad in there at all. I myself was shocked! You and a friend could go when they're having the buy one, get one 1/2 off sale and hook each other up!

Star Jones still repping fuh dem? I 4get 2 ask!

BTW, Saucy it is YOUR FAULT that I end up in de people dem store and bought some Airwalk sandals and some other Airwalks with a big black skull and crossbones (oh yeahhh)on the top of de shoe. Send meh somewhey else nah allyuh? Gi'me an EXCUSE to get on bad in de people store eh?

This is an aside but right next to Payless is my favorite place in all mankind outside of ebay. Nordstrom or Bloomies allyuh? NO! Is a store called 99 cent dreams! All meh dreams does come true right in dey yes! It does bring tears tuh meh lil' eyes.........This is Dolli reporting to Saucy live and direct from the parking lot behind the Payless shoe store. Back to you Sauce.

Jamette said...

Hi Ladies,
First time commenter here. But don't worry, I all up in organising my accesories 6 months in advance and I find nobody talking about Jamette so I reach! So hear dis, i figure I will try and Jam up de Jamette and wear the fishnet stockings I see on the site. What allyuh tink? And I wanted boots before i even saw the costumes, so what do you think about boots AND fishnet stockings? is that too much? And the last question, I am seeing these chicks in white fish net stockings and I am as dark as de darkie on the site and I don't think they look too bad but i really not too sure, i never thought of myself wearing white fishnet stockings before. Opinions please? I need to start thinking about my hair next!

amprincess said...

but what de jail I reading here??? Dolli u thief saucy blog from she LOL!!!!! u are a hot mess, too busy running thru Payless to call yuh friend! LMAO - did u find my silver glitter boots for me yet?

Hottie Hottie said...

Jamette, yuh doh hafta wear while yuh know. Try for a colour fishnet - especially if you could get a colour close to the costume. How yuh mean if the stockings and boots is too much?! Is mas yuh playing, not All Fours! And yuh section name Jammette. You know how far yuh hafta go before yuh reach at too much!? Girl, try yuh best eh. Go and buy yuh stockings!

Hottie Hottie said...

white, white. what de hell going on with my spelling?!

Bagogyul said...

Hello.....as Denise Belfon sing..."Bring out d' Jameetteee in ah meeeeeeeeeeeee"

Gyul get some Red diamond fishnets....nothing look more jametteIsh (is that a word) than the big diamond fishnets....

i wore them in Ichibaba 98' Lajablesse...then in FlvaGirls Miami 2003 Soucoyant....
i don't know where you are located but in Brooklyn go to any variety store on Flatbush that sells hair and hoseiry and you bound to find them...

Tip: make sure that the fishnets are sheer to the waist!

Hello!

Prettidolli...I playing DRAGON!!!

Yuh know for some reason I did figure dais what yuh did playing. Is a good section so yuh have plenty to work with. There's so much we can do! My friend is playing dey also, but she ent stylish...Juss spray she gold paint pon she sneakers and dais ah wrap! In which country yuh based so I can tell u which stores to hit up? I'll be looking into some tings 4u also.

And I wanted boots before I even saw the costumes, so what do you think about boots AND fishnet stockings? is that too much? I am as dark as de darkie on the site and I don't think they look too bad but i really not too sure, i never thought of myself wearing white fishnet stockings before.
YES! Boots and fishnets CAN be TOO MUCH! It really depends on de height of de boot shaft. Don't wear fishnets with low or calf high boots as it really takes away from the effect of each. Is TNT Carnival, not de yardie dancehall. If you choose to do boots, do the knee high ones with the fishies so it'll look a bit better. As for Jammette, when I look at this costume it is so adorable that I believe it will look smashing with some very comfy ballerina flats. Just make sure to have your insoles inside if the shoes are too flat to support your feet all day. If yuh lucky yuh can purchase de ones that have a lil' ribbon to wrap around those ever so delicate ankles of yours and yuh good 2 go. Just match de ribbon to de colors of ur costume..Cushy and too cute!
NO! If yuh ah darkie white fishies DO NOT look right unless there is a gold pole behind you and bills in ur g-string. Nope...I don't business and keh who doh like what I just said but it doesn't look right! Go for the flesh colored ones the models wore at the launch and keep the diamond diameter small. This refers to the size of the diamonds that comprise the fishnet. Keep it small or else you'd really look ah Jammette. Good luck!

U are a hot mess, too busy running thru Payless to call yuh friend! LMAO - did u find my silver glitter boots for me yet?

Ampy, I FOUND THEM!! I'm working on a deal 4u with the owner of the warehouse so I can get ah lil' discount 4u. Is why yuh should pay $60? Yuh done know Saucy and I are one set ah cheap H.O.s...Dolli don't play dat! And I does find ur shoes 4u EVERY YEAR! LOL! What size yuh did want? Remember, foot does expand wid de jump, okayyy? I'm waiting for this slow bastid to email me back all now. Steups..

Ah going back to Payless w/my AAA card and get meh difference refunded to me. I don't make joke! Thanks Anon for that tip. I think Payless does occassionally put coupons in de Sunday paper to help allyuh out as well. ;)

Hottie Hottie said...

We confusing the girl! Doh go with no big big diamond - but doh go with no tiny ass one either. What boots yuh thinking of going with? The ballarinas will look cute, yes, but if yuh arch high yuh go be cussing Dolli come the 20th. You in the corsette?
