Wardrobe Wishlist: Patent Lace Up Shoe Boot

Patent shoe boot

If anyone has a spare 38 pounds lying about then why not head to Dorothy Perkins and buy me these fabulous patent lace up shoe boots (i take a 6), i’d be your friend forever!

There’s something about the lace up shoe boot which grabs my attention (i think it stems from my obsession with the Victorian era and in particularly with Mary Poppins- yes really)…

Mary Poppins (Julie Andrews) Style Icon?

For a more modern look at the shoe boot i love how Keira Knightley wore hers during the release of her film ‘The Edge of Love’, teaming her booties with a checked monochrome dress.

I do own a pair of lace up shoe boots from Nine West (pictured below) which i adore (they didn’t come cheap eek) but i think the DP’s patent style gives them a touch of glamour rather than the vintage feel of my Nine West ones. They’re also the perfect day-to-night shoes especially when worn with black opaque tights.

When is pay day again?
