oh good jesus - noooooo. don;t do it!

hoxtonchick Thu 28-Aug-08 22:47:35

i have got them! in black. they are very comfy & slightly welly like (but i do have skinny legs - the one skinny part of me...) & i want it to be autumn now so i can wear them. so i think you should buy 'em (but i did get 20% off).

are you slim talll and lithe

if not yes you will look ridiculous

Megglevache Thu 28-Aug-08 22:47:52

I wouldn't wear them with red trousers and a coat with white fur trim you know.


Fimbo Thu 28-Aug-08 22:47:54

Really don't like them - sorry! La Redoute have a nice patent boot in rather more subtle shade of black or brown! Much cheaper at, well Ok not much - about £130, but you'd use a discount code and knock them down to £95.

BlueberryBeret Thu 28-Aug-08 22:49:06

Lol - I read the second pair as "please note, if you are a larger size you may wish to rethink this style" grin

Megglevache Thu 28-Aug-08 22:49:18

I hate the green heel ones but I do think they could look noice.

Megglevache Thu 28-Aug-08 22:50:18

I want red boots though.
Hmm I really rather like them. it was dh wetting himself that made me doubt...

pgwithnumber3 Thu 28-Aug-08 22:55:01

Fabulous for Xmas with white mohair cardigan and red a-line skirt grin

<need to go and do something constructive with my time>

pgwithnumber3 Thu 28-Aug-08 22:59:02

Yeah, but you could get 3 for the price of the one pair from Boden! Plus DH would be made up!

FlightAttendent Thu 28-Aug-08 23:00:57

La redoute ones. Lovely fit, I sent back because too shiny for moi smile

Megglevache Thu 28-Aug-08 23:06:39

Thanks very much. Did you order he vrown or blk?

FlightAttendent Thu 28-Aug-08 23:12:53

Brown - they were nice boots. I didn't really feel I suited the shiny though.

You might well! smile I am Mrs Dull colours by nature...
