What about these boots

Nine West crinkly patent

I work in an all male office and generally wear a suit or a dress with a jacket. Have worn the same things for the last 20 years pretty much and as no women there, don't really have any reference points for inspiration. In winter I sometimes wear boots with my suits, but do these leave me open to accusations od tartiness?

I'm looking for something to make me slightly less frumpy, but wonder if this might be a step too far? I'm 40 BTW

i do like them, but the men in your office might like them a bit too much....

somewhere in milton keynes, a hooker is wondering who nicked her boots . . .

Heavens! They are quite foxy - might turn heads. I like them, I think.

I'd only wear patent in a flat, more casual style boot. I've just bought these and they're gorgeous.

Habb, that how I feel. " I like them, I think" I saw them in real life today and they're not quite as shiny as the picture, the patent is kind of crinkly/crackly iyswim

They would be very daring for me and I suspect I would get comments, which I would laugh off and then never wear them again. blush

Do you have really tiny feet, weepootleflump? They appear to be children's boots.

(whoops - sorry, weepootle, no flump)

aren't those kids ones weepootle? they're lovely. i have there, and hooray, it's getting cold enough to wear them soon. not sure they'd work with a suit though.

grin JackieNo, I got them in GapKids in a size 5 (I'm normally a 4). I'm sometimes weepootleflump too.

I love those hoxtonchick- I just couldn't part with the cash though so I ordered these instead. They were very nice but just a little short in the leg so they're going back.

i got 20% off so it wasn't quite so painful. i am jealous you have small enough feet to fit into children's shoes!

They're not nice at all. And that is me being polite.

Sorry LargeOnePlease, they are really not nice imho.

Ohhh, I knew I wouldn't be able to have them , just like to think I could be the sort of person who could get away with it. Thank you ladies.
