A few weeks ago I received an email from the lovely people over at Barratts. They’d seen my recent post describing my failed mission for a pair of boots (click here) and decided I was in need of some obvious help. Their offer? To send me a pair of boots of my choice. Well, I nearly keeled over. In fact I thought it was a new breed of spam email and I waited for the catch. Turns out there wasn’t one.
After spending hours, and I literally do mean hours trawling the endless choices on their website, I finally chose a pair of boots. I’m quite fussy when it comes to footwear and I had a pretty good idea of what I was after, which sometimes makes things tricky.
- They had to be black
- With a broad heel
- Could be worn with skinny jeans or dresses
- Must not give me a cankle!!!
Two days later my boots arrived and I have to say their website doesn’t do them justice. They look even better in real life.
Not only that but I’ve had a serious amount of compliments over these boots. My teenage sister! My Mother! The Boyfriend! Even a Builder!!! It’s safe to say I feel fairly smug with my choice and they have certainly become a staple part of my wardrobe. In fact I have virtually worn them everyday since they’ve arrived and I think I’ve even developed a bit of strut!! I’m not joking! It’s as if the streets have become my catwalk! I need to remember, I am not a super model and therefore should not walk like one!! Except, I can’t help it, these boots make me feel good! Dare I go as far to say ‘they complete me’? Ok maybe not but they definitely complete my wardrobe!!
I think what I love about these boots is they fit all of my criteria. They go with everything. They’re comfy. Look good and sit right on the ankle. There’s nothing worse than wearing a cute dress only for your boots to sit just above your ankle giving the illusion of cankles. You can tell I’ve got a hang up over this right?
But enough about my hang ups! Back to the boots and how I wore them……..
