The Shoe Girl Styles It: Privileged Applause
Sometimes I think it's good to try something outwith your usual style and while there are elements of these boots I like, I'm really not sure I'd wear them myself. I don't mind the uppers too much (though I'm not much of a white fan), the elasticated bit and zip, I could take or leave. The perspex heel though, I love. It looks like you're standing on your tip-toes, wearing flat shoes from a side angle. The winkle picker toe is the main component I dislike. I just think the whole boot would be more appealing with a shorter and softer toe shape. What do you think? They are Privileged 'Applause' £75, exclusive to Schuh and also come in black. I wanted to try and style them anyway, to see if I could make them more tempting. So, I'd wear them with this Jaeger star printed dress, add some glitter tights and this quirky clock bag, which actually looks like it was made for these boots. I added this stunning coat, which I've been drooling over all week. It also comes in red (very Mrs Claus), I could just gobble up that lace trim collar! Like the lovely one yesterday, it's a whopper of a bargain with 60% off from £365 down to £149.50. Have I managed to make these boots more appealing or perhaps you liked them anyway?
Libelula 'Paris' green wool coat £149.50 (sale ends 23rd Nov), Boutique by Jaeger 'Starlight' dress £69 (sale 54% off, ends 23rd Nov) both BrandAlley, Topshop glitter tights £8.50 and Aldo 'Holiday Clock' bag £30.
