Okay, so fashion icon I am not.

BUT, but, but, but. What is all this pencil skirt and ankle boot thing all about?

Like this and this

It's absolutely bloody ridiculous.

I am astonished that people are going for this. I've seen colleagues going round like this in the office.

A less flattering combination of items is hard to imagine. Even on gorgeous and perfect models it just looks silly.

Has anybody got anything good at all to say about this ghastliness?

SecretJewel, you are the little boy in this story grin

I'm no fashion icon either.

With boots like that I'd have to wear socks or they'd rub and annoy me.

And then I would look like a total arse.
Oh, to be young and experimental again!

I wear those little socks that stop on your ankle when I wear ankle boots

WowOoo Tue 10-Sep-13 17:13:01

I have no idea why that came up three times. blush

PrincessRomy Tue 10-Sep-13 17:13:38

I wrote a different post before that one and it's not come up??

WowOoo, I didn't quite get that - are you a fashion icon or not then?

PrincessRomy Tue 10-Sep-13 17:15:24

Said I would wear that look but not like in the Zara pic. I'd need a heeled ankle boot and a more fitted, shorter pencil skirt (just below knee?). Could be a good autumny look. Also said I'm prepared to be told I have no style though.

God it's just never the same when you have to rewrite a lost post.

when I see images like that I'm so glad Im not particularly stylish, at least I'll just look a bit boring in my photos ten years minutes on, rather than utterly ridiculous.

CointreauVersial Tue 10-Sep-13 17:20:38

Um, sorry, I quite like the look (though not particularly the second link).

Long boots with skirts feel really dowdy to me now.

Gah! These site issues are getting me down. Sorry about double post.

CointreauVersial Tue 10-Sep-13 17:22:16

Triple post, even. grin

PrincessRomy Tue 10-Sep-13 17:22:44

Glad I'm not the only one cointreau

LeGavrOrf Tue 10-Sep-13 17:24:57

What is wrong with you two? grin

woozlebear Tue 10-Sep-13 17:27:45

I'm DEFINITELY not a fashion icon, but I quite like the first look. Second one is bluerrrrrgh though.

PrincessRomy Tue 10-Sep-13 17:32:44

We are all agreed we're not keen on the Zara look.

SecretJewel Tue 10-Sep-13 17:37:27

And to think, somebody was paid money to put that together.

BalloonSlayer Tue 10-Sep-13 17:39:39

It reminds me of when my Mum used to wear my Granny's old boots to work in the snow. They had zips up the front.

The Zara one is terrible, but quite like the first one.
