Here I am on a very cold February Friday morning wearing my patent black United Nude Eamz shoe-boots with a blue-black fur coat from Reiss’ 1971 line, bright orange scarf from Primark, and black brick dress by Olivia Rubin. I am, thankfully, quite warm!
And I love this coat: to me it screams trashy glamour and seedy, sexy rock and roll – as if I’d just got in from partying all night rather than just dropping the kids off at school!
I love how the smartness of the little black dress and patent shoes acts as a fashion counterbalance or counter statement. It’s like rock and roll for the workplace…or in my case, the home and housework!
Today’s school-run shoes: my United Nude brown leather Step Möbius Hi boots from a few years back. They’re a bit big for me (that’s what happens when you buy things in online sales), but at least it means I can wear my thick hiking socks inside them, and my toes are stylish and TOASTY! 🙂
Here’s a pic of my AW11 Therapy brand, fluffy faux-fur coat which has been seeing me through the recent cold snap. Note the skinny jeans instead of tights, and leggings paired with the United Nude Eamz shoes (which makes them almost a practical snow boot, right?!). LOVE.
Today’s school run shoes: white United Nude Eamz worn with pink and silver leg-warmers, skinny jeans and a massive fuck-off fluffy, Therapy brand furry coat thingy. Watch and learn, Primary School-ers, watch and learn ;-p
Wore the shoe version of these United Nudes yesterday for the school-run, but here is the shoe-boot style for cold nights, muddy puddles, girlie evenings out on the town and asymmetrical pink hairdos. Or all of the above…at once!
