I love it, much more vibrant colours in rl. Not what I would normally wear though, usually I go for shortish dresses with tights and boots. I love the idea of this with a chunky jumper but what shoes with it? Biker boots or non? Dont think ballet pumps will work"...And do you think it would be totally ott for daytime wear?
Sleepwhenidie, can you link to some short-ish dresses + boots that you thin work together? I need to find some new things to wear , and I'm strating to like the idea of boots that I can tuck my b;ack skinny jeans into.
bolder but could tone down with boots, opaques and cardi or dressed up for evening?
I invested in a pair of zadig biker boots last winter (asked for selfridges vouchers for Xmas from family then added to them!) and I absolutely adore them. Definitely invest as much as you can in a good pair of boots and look after them, they should then be worth it. Mine are just like these but black leather, no zips. They work brilliantly with feminine dresses to stop them looking too much for daytime and also roomy enough for jeans to tuck in or great with leggings.
Lovely links sleep The boots are yum...still at the price but I do agree with you about the investment. When I worked I bought a pair of hobbs boots for £200 and I have worn them for three winters (3/4 days a week) and they still look great.
Thanks for the links sleepwhenidie, I'm having difficulty deciding what I'd like to wear at the moment.
So, Warehouse dress - very nice! French Connection dress - very nice too, but the arms might drive me mad. Miss Selfridge dress - maybe a bit too smart for me, but then maybe I need to be smarter .
When I'm at work, I usually wear a silk top, dark trousers, and possibly a cardigan. When I'm not at work , I usually wear a t-shirt, and boyfriend jeans. I just bought 2 pairs of black skinny jeans which I love though. So, I'd really like some cosy boots that I can tuck them into (I wore them with black cowboy boots today, but couldn't work out if it looked okay or awful ). There's no way I'm going to keep wearing pumps to work in this soggy weather (and it'll be cold soon too).
