Dress: H&M (old).  Try Free People’s Go Lightly dress.  Jacket: Vintage.  Try Free People’s Flamenco, their Quilted Tie or Batik jackets. Boots: All Saints (old). Try Jeffrey Campbell’s Pascale.   Bag: Chanel. Shades: Ray-Ban

I am in an old H&M slip dress and an even older pair of All Saints ankle boots which I’ve lost count on how many times they’ve been re-soled.  They’ve faded from black to an indescribable faded colour, the left custom metal toe tip has fallen off and the insides have worn down.  In short – they’re perfect.  I am KICKING myself though for not buying them in suede back when they had them.   A back up to these would’ve been everything!

You can see how the dress looks with silver heels but for running around, the boots win.

      Thanks Dee!!! You need ankle boots!!

      • Diana says:

        So, I kind of maybe bought two kinds of ankle boots recently. I’m so bad!

    • Karen Blanchard says:

      Have you tried one on yet? Definitely do before you get one if you do. I did to help me decide. Its very small but its not meant to hold your wallet. You take your credit cards out of your wallet and slot them inside this one.

      I like the casual look of the woc. It feels less ‘prissy’ than a flap

    • Karen Blanchard says:

      Thank you! the hem and color are my fave bits.

    I have been hunting the Internet for the All Saints boots. Found a pair on EBay and put a bid in—biting nails hoping I get them. They are the tasseled ones, but brown.
