socks with heels

Coat: Topshop. Dress: American Apparel. Boots: Zara. Bag: Rebecca Minkoff. Fedora: Trash & Vauderville.
God. I’ve been meaning to get this post up but never got round to it.
The bloody boots from Zara!!!!! I’ve been ummming and ahhing over these for over a month. I tried them on back then and dismissed them, then I went back last week to mosey around and there they were. Only two pairs left and one in my size. I took it as a sign.
I tried them on and that was it. Done. They feel like socks with a heel and lug platform attached. They are that comfy. (A customer at Zara was buying her SECOND pair as a back up).
The dress is American Apparel here.
The tulip skirt coat is a purchase from Topshop years ago.
ps. Bought thigh high boots today (literally stops at the thigh). Let’s see how I get on with those. Post to follow…
