I have loved these boots from afar for many many months. So imagine my surprise when I popped into French Connection yesterday and they were in the sale….and both pairs that were left were in my size!!

Fate? I believe so, they just had to be purchased. Originally £140…..reduced to £63!

The leather is so soft and even with the skyscraper heels they are pleasantly comfortable to wear. I love the knot detail at the back, really cute!

I know a couple of my readers are avid shoe fans, you know who you are, so these pictures are for them.

It really was my day yesterday, and it was needed let me tell you, I’ve had an utterly crap week………

Guess what?

I went into my local department store looking for a fab new nail colour, never in a million years expecting they would have this!!

Yes you are seeing correctly no need to put on your glasses. I know, I know, you must be soooo envious…..how lucky was that?

For those of you that don’t know this is the hot little number from Chanel, it is virtually sold out, everywhere. Except, hehe, where I got it from. I bought it not sure if I would actually wear it, it is quite a statement colour- you either love it or hate it, knowing that I could easily sell it on ebay if I decided not to like it.

And here is the finished product!

And I do like it…..not sure it’s suitable for the school run but I noticed those envious sneaky looks at my nails while out on the town last night! ;0)

  12. Oooohhhhhhhh *wipes drool away*

    I love the shoes
    I love the nail varnish colour
    I am soooooo jealous.

    And I’d have worn the nail varnish on the school run… and waved it in the other mum’s faces!

    1. Hi Nickie
      I nearly ended up wearing on the school run….then I noticed a chip so it was hastily taken off with the remover…I hate chips on nails! ;0(

      Posted on February 22, 2010 at 9:49 pm
      1. Oh me too – but, I’ve mentioned before on my blog, I can chip 5-day-wear nail varnish within the hour so I tend to “top up” at the end of each day.

        I’ve linked to your post on my blog – http://typecast2000.blogspot.com/2010/02/these-boots-were-made-for-walking.html

    1. I have to admit Tara when I went to the toilet after a few champagne cocktails I had to hold onto the tables as I was scared I was going to fall over….good job we never ended up going to a club- I don’t think I would have danced successfully! ;0)

    1. Sorry Gigi this is really bugging me. Have you subscribed? Or…have you joined the google connect friend thingy? If so I’m wondering if it’s that???
      I have subscribed myself and am receiving posts in my google reader, eventually, it’s a bit slow. You’re not the only one though. XXX

  15. Am totally drooling over those boots!!!!! Love them! I can think of many things I already own that they would look good with …… 😉

    How funny – I just bought polish that is almost exactly the same color! And am loving it – even for every day wear.

  16. Wow, I love the boots. I couldn’t wear them in a million years, haven’t worn heels for donkeys years but I’m sure they look fantastic on you. And gorgeous nails too. I look at mine and all I can see is sheep!
