These boots by Toast are perfection and extremely comfortable. The leather heels are covered with a vibram-type layer too so I didn't even have to bring them to the cobbler before wearing them, as is usually the case with boots from Toast.
A red dress by Isabel Marant. Should be good for day to day wear, belted or with a cardigan. It's made of viscose and silk - I have doubts about the durability of viscose but we shall see - the dress was reduced hugely so I would be happy to get a year out of it and maybe longer.
