These boots were made for walking…

August 20, 2013

Haaaa the end of Summer. The temperature drop we had in the last few days got me thinking about Fall clothes and about wrapping up in warm and fluffy wool jumpers.I am enjoying the nice warm weather but that made me think about what to wear when it gets chilly. I tidied up my closet the past weekend and went through my shoe collection. Seeing that I now live in a country where the past few Winters have been quite harsh, I noticed that I don’t seem to have near enough boots to my liking. I had a look around here and there and although the boots in the shops are nice, I want something different. So I started doodling and thought – What if we could have the crazy boots we always dreamed of?

So I came up with some fun (and funny) designs and thought how amusing it would be to design footwear for some of my blogger friends. They may not like them in the end but they really were the inspiration behind some of these:

The Circus Boots

These would be made of red matte leather and the stars could maybe be silver or white patent leather. I thought they would be perfect for Desiree of Pull Yr Socks Up. I can see her rocking these with one of her tutus!


The Attitude Boots

Black leather, of course, with silver buckles and silver spikes. A bit too much for me but I thought they would be the boots I would buy Suzanne of Idee Fixe if I ever had to pick a pair for her.

The Grey Velvet Boots

Imagined these for Vix of Vintage Vixen, a very glamourous lady indeed. The yellow should be more mustardy and the green leaves should be embroidered on grey velvet. They may look uncomfortable but they would look fab if they were real.

The Divoon Orange Boots

These would go to Helga of Helga von Trollop, of course. I can see her wearing these with one of her fabulous capes and her beehive style do. I haven’t decided if I want them in patent leather or just regular leather. Either way, those bows would look amazing.

The Navy Boots

And these are for me, thank you very much. As I’ve said countless times before, this is one of my favourite colour combos.

Now all we need to find is someone to make these for us. And not too expensive, please! Which one is your favourite?
