Obsession


So, Shoes or bags? As the cliche says, all fashion loving females are obsessed with one of these accessory groups, if not both. My personal 'affliction' is a bit more specific than that though.... my chosen poison? Ankle boots. Heels don't interest me, sparkly stilettos or platform peep-toes go by un-noticed. Show me a good shoe-boot, ankle boot or wedge and I'll beg for mercy. I just think they rock up feminine looks and add that edge I crave which you just don't get with a pretty sandal. Even now when England is experiencing somewhat of a heatwave, you can't get me out of my boots.

My current obsession du j'ore are these Isabel Marant Dicker boots....




But alas, my budget isn't quite Marant worthy yet, (one day!). So instead I'm drooling over these...


These beauties from Oasis are £65 and need to come home and live with me. We would be pretty happy together.


And these are the famous Topshop Ambush boots currently doing the rounds on the blogosphere, but at £75 they are still a little rich for my blood. Still. Aren't they bootiful? (See what I did there?! aha! Sorry)

What's you fashion obsessions? 

(FYI aside from the obvious ankle boot fetish, regular readers of my blog will have noticed that I also have pretty serious obsessions with necklaces, scarves and maxi skirts...)

OH and can I just take a second and say wow- 99 followers?! When did this happen? Will have to have a giveaway when I get to 100 :) Thank you so much to those following!!

The Isabel Marant ones are amazing. Topshop did some similar ones last season which were pretty good! xx

I must say, i have the Oasis boots and hadn't thought of the Dickers, hehe! (i love how the IM boots slope slightly at the front, this makes them so incredibly distinctive for me) The Oasis pair are really quite nice, a bit darker in person and rather slippery on the sole, but they do work well with many of my outfits so far, and I am rather fond of them for a budget by indeed!

I am actually lusting over the apc suede boots, but cannot work out how i would care for them. This is my problem with footwear - I would prefer to choose higher quality, but i ruin shoes so very quickly.

I do like the TopShop boots, I think their similarity to a certain Acne design doesn't hurt their popularity! There's a delicious pair of navy blue ankle boots in Kurt Geiger that I am lusting over at the minute, but at £170 that is definitely a bit too rich. Which pair do you think you'll end up going for?

Had to pop in with another alternative which i just stumbled upon via Aldo. Here is the link, they are available in cognac and black http://www.aldoshoes.com/uk/women/boots/ankle-boots/85963462-qualheim/28
