I'm still on the hunt for some more ankle boots. I have some black suede Topshop ones that I live in as they are the perfect heel height. However I've been after either a leather pair (for more every day wear than suede) and/or a lighter coloured pair for a more casual look. Main criteria being they are walkable for hours! I found the below (not the most flattering shot) in M&S but they were just to big (in the sale and at £39 they've flown off the shelves but am after a 3.5 just in case anyone finds any lurking in their store, thanks!).
I spent last Sunday in London (more to follow in another post!) and of course checked out the Marble Arch M&S just in case. It's a huge store with loads more in than my local one. I saw some gorgeous suede boots but trying to think of my 'needs' I didn't look further into them due to being suede. Until I popped to Selfridges that is and saw the Isabel Marant Dicker boot in navy. Yum. At £360 they are just ever so slightly out of my affordable budget but they got me thinking about what I saw in M&S. Further research on line showed other colours in their suede boot and at £59, just under one sixth (sorry, I do love my math!) of the designer boot, they may just be worth a go.
|The designer boot|
|M&S's boot, ok so it's lighter in colour but so similar in every other way|
|Ticking my leather and tan boxes, but I am a sucker for suede!|
|The real deal|
|M&S's version in grey (although they did look navy in store!)|
|And the 'nearly' boots also at £59 from M&S which I'm now feeling are a little chunkier than I would like|
So do I forget the practicality and go sand suede, or maybe give the tan leather pretend 'dicker' a try? M&S, please can you just throw me a 20% off all footwear week-end please? You know how I don't like to pay full price for anything!
