No these were no good at all.
Worn by the sort of woman who would buy an appliqued tiered skirt form Per Una and call it 'jazzy'. <shoots self>

I'm drawn back to one of your original suggestions.

But I want a high heel, square toe and close fit dammit. Is it too much to ask.

PS I am loathing suede boots I think. Doesn't it go all scuzzy and faded?

"PS I am loathing suede boots I think. Doesn't it go all scuzzy and faded?"

Yes. I will never bother again. Unless it is for occassion shoes/boots that I expect to rarely wear.

Thank you.

Anything on the Office website- they have a sale going? Or javari? or ASOS?

meltedchocolate Tue 20-Sep-11 16:00:14

Tracy I just may kiss you!

moondog Tue 20-Sep-11 17:21:05

I like these.

Over knee boots de trop for work though eh?

moondog Tue 20-Sep-11 17:23:04

Nowt to do with current quest but v v v nice.

COS have got some like that but not as high. suede is ok if you treat it when new and keep it clean. and not black, it goes greenish.

I am slightly in love with these, but alas would like a fat giraffe.

neuroticmumof3 Tue 20-Sep-11 19:44:54

I like the original boots. I don't like Per Una appliqued skirts though.

moondog Tue 20-Sep-11 20:44:16

Fimbo, that's a cracking pair of boots.

tethersend Tue 20-Sep-11 21:02:58

Ah Moondog- shame the office ones were no good. I'm still looking you haunt my dreams ...

Too thin a heel?

Then I started looking at the pricier end:


Unusual, pricy, square toe

Only small sizes (How can I not know what size you are!?)


moondog Tue 20-Sep-11 21:07:00

1. I love it!
No, can work a heel

2. Cool bit of a 60s vibe

3. OMFG <whispers> Remember the gladiator sandal

4. Too small (51/2 since you ask)

5. Hmm. When does 60s vibe become Mum at Tesco?

I will beat say goodnight to the children and look at 1 again.
Promising. V promising.

LOVE those Asos wedges- want something like that myself but not as high... Have you got a pic of the Cos ones fishie?

tethersend Tue 20-Sep-11 21:23:26

Hahaha, I hate number three too, but you have to throw a wild card in there from time to time grin

Am still looking. And always will be.

I can rely on you Tether me old mucker.
Frankly we would all be lost without your uncanny ability to sniff out just what we seek.

Would that I could one day return the favour to such a sartorial inspiration.

Hi tether
It is me with the broken ankle and the back zip boots!
I am now wearing one of your suggestions! I love them and am so grateful for your help.

Bellavita Tue 20-Sep-11 22:20:47

Mint Velvet ones nicer than first pair.

Fimbo, those boots are fab.

I have a pair of suede boots - had them forever, still look new. Just don't wear them in the rain! And spray them often with suede protector.

moondog Tue 20-Sep-11 22:21:11

I really think 2 is the one but wrong bloody size!

tethersend Tue 20-Sep-11 22:38:25

Aw, shucks you guys...blush

tethersend Thu 22-Sep-11 16:28:27

Moondog, are over-the knee too much?

These caught my eye...

tethersend Thu 22-Sep-11 16:28:49

Oh FFS, wrong link.

Hang on.
