I quite like but they might look like wellies...

£165! Madness m'lady.

Flightputsonahat Wed 30-Jul-08 11:39:29

Hee hee grin

Was thinking, mauve wooly tights, dark short skirt, you know the kind of thing...would the brown be better?

I might just bugger it and order them and then report back.

Flightputsonahat Wed 30-Jul-08 11:40:17

Yes but I am going to wait till the sale and the dodgy colour ones are reduced iyswim.

If I order and try on I will know what to do when tis sale time...

filthymindedvixen Wed 30-Jul-08 11:40:25

I like, but not at that price!

Flightputsonahat Wed 30-Jul-08 11:40:47

You get 10% off so £148 ish.

cornsilk Wed 30-Jul-08 11:47:27

waiting for sale good tactic - I like!

Jewelsandgems Wed 30-Jul-08 12:57:22

They seem a little bit expensive to me, especially when their wear-a-bility is reduced to a) with a long skirt or b) walking in muddy conditions.

maidamess Wed 30-Jul-08 12:58:20

They would have to fit VERY well around the calf to not look like wellies, especially in that welly green colour.

Ooh can you get that kind from Joneses? <goes to sneak a look>

The thing is I always want boots that are that shape iyswim, and nobody ever sells them, and if I wore them every day (which I would in winter) it would be worth even £148.

I have a lot of cheapy ones that were never quite right. Am trying the 'get one thing and wear it to death' approach, now I am getting old grin

Clutter and armfulls of stuff from the topshop sale that was only any good because it was cheap, is what it used to be like round here...false economy really.

Mind you if they do look like wellies they are going straight back without even removing the crumpled paper wink

I like them but you will get a pair probably exactly the same elsewhere.

I do love these though

Really? I suppose I only ever go in Jones at sale time blush by which time everything in an 8 is purple with suede stripey bits and a 5 inch heel.

x posts but I still cannae find any boots like those ones! All have a heel, I found Pamela (riding boot, too pointy for moi)
Yuri (green but biggo heel)

Pleeeease show me the rest. I tried search but it only had loads of crocs on the page hmmgrin

Flightputsonahat Wed 30-Jul-08 13:30:44

Ah Ok there I go again grin

Will try end Aug in store. smile

butwhybutwhy Wed 30-Jul-08 13:30:58

Do you know those Fry boots that everyone raved about 3 years ago ish?

Well Jones did their own version, sold them for £150 and then reduced them to £15 in the sale.

Bargainous. Jones do good sales.

bundle Wed 30-Jul-08 13:34:41

why not get some duo boots, most of which are cheaper and then you get ones which exactly fit?

Jewelsandgems Wed 30-Jul-08 13:35:18

How about duo? They have lots of more casual boots, all made to measure your calf, and they don't look wellyish in the slghtest.

Flightputsonahat Wed 30-Jul-08 15:59:38

Thanks, they are quite nice - but I couldn't see much in the way of flat boots? I can't do heels, I am rubbish totterer grin

Do we like the Cloudy mac by the way? I thought lilac spot one was good. Here
