Most of the time, I’m not really that susceptible to random trends that pop up in magazines, and on supremely rich girls with perfect bods… But the more I keep eying these little ankle boots, the more I think… Hmmmm…
A little history: I used to be SUPER ANTI-ANKLE BOOT. I mean, I was dangerously close to picketing Nordstrom and handing a pair of trousers to every girl I saw wearing them with non-pant items. I grew up in an era when Dr. Marten’s ruled the school, so it’s not necessarily the actual boot I
fear despise, it’s the combo of dress/skirt + boot. It’s inappropriate and unacceptable.
Or so I thought.
Someone please tell me how to say no. It just works all of a sudden! Especially Ashley Simpson’s look… So streamlined and classy… So I dug around and found some good “booties” to slide over some opaque tights.
Super-hot suede: GoJane’s Sapoly Boot has a SUPER manageable 2.5″ heel and an awesome tie detail over the top of the shoe. The brown suede makes me think of dark chocolate ganache – which is almost as delicious sounding as the shoes themselves (one for eating – one for NOT eating!). $32.99 at GoJane.com!
Okay, how could I resist… More suede! But even better TEAL suede! These booties are a bit more ambitious with a 4.25″ covered heel (and it looks like maybe a 1/2″ hidden platform in front), but the color is SCREAMIN’! You can find these bold beauties at GoJane.com, as well, for a measly $20.99!
Another can’t-resist, must-post item! And MORE SUEDE! Actually, these are European Inspired “Micro-Suede”, which I’m assuming is better (and… smaller?). They come in a bright berry or a bright red from FlyJane.net for only $37.99! Zoe Kravitz likes ’em!
I’d like to make a gentle, but strong suggestion: If you’re going to wear booties with a skirt, or dress (hell, even with pants!), only round toe! Pointy toes are good under wide-leg trousers and the like… but not so much on their own. Also, this look is NOT for black-tie, dress occasions… Keep it casual and easy.
