They say you should never shop online after having a couple of glasses of wine. And I also think it’s wise to avoid shopping after a break-up. I’ve made some shocking impulse purchases over the years in an attempt to cure a broken heart (the most ridiculous of which is a giant, ceramic stapler shaped like a Dalmatian). And I have a break-up to thank for my Stuart Weitzman over-the-knee boots. I absolutely adore them, but never would have spent that much money on a pair of shoes if I’d been in a healthy state of mind.
You don’t have to go through a break-up and spend upwards of £500 to get the look, however. There are much smarter ways to invest in the trend… Mint Velvet have a beautiful pair of suede OTK boots in their Autumn/Winter collection. They’re still an investment, coming in at £199, but that’s less than half the price of the near-identical Stuart Weitzman boots.
Also on my radar, this week, are J.Crew’s cool horoscope T-shirts. You can view the entire collection here – the Taurus tee is my personal favourite. Plus, I’ve fallen head-over-heels for Topshop’s tiered midi dress and Marks and Spencer’s captain hat. I’d wear them together, with a pair of black, pointed-toe ankle boots!
