I've just bought a House of Oliver petticoat to go under my skirts and dresses.
My style is. Um. Possibly a bit eccentric. Vintage 50s with a bit of the Gothic thrown in for good measure, and the odd touch of the Pre-Raphaelites.
I need a pair of flat(tish) shoes that will work well with opaques or bare legs under my skirts and petticoats. I already have a pair of cute tan ankle boots with rivets, and suede shoe-boot things with a high block heel from Kurt Geiger.
Whatever I get needs to be comfortable and chic and sort of challenge the whole petticoat thing so I don't look like I'm in fancy dress (even though that's exactly what's going on inside my little head )
I love the hi-tops and the boots - I think because they're 'tough' so they aren't too 'Little House', so you're bang on with what I'm looking for, thanks! It's just have 2 pairs of boots already so I guess I'm looking for shoes that have that feel....
I like the silver ones because they're sort of heftyish so would do the job, but I think silver would be a bit restricting...you're introduced me to ALDO which I didn't know about so thanks for that!
Issima you GENIUS - Fly shoes! DSis has been telling me to get these for YONKS and I had completely forgotten. She says you can walk hours in them. And they're just the right level of chunky, sort of thing.
Faux I adore all that Goth stuff. If I ever have the courage to totally embrace my Gothic self I'll know where to go now Also DH would love it
