Cut it Out!!! Boots Glorious Boots!!

Hi Lovelies,

Aww boots.........

Every girl looks forward to getting a fab new pair of boots. But in reality we actually need at least 2 pairs!

In the winter, you have to have a pair you can use during the day, some that you can actually walk in (a strange concept for Jools) - but we also need a kicking pair of heeled boots for the evening that will work with trousers, jeans and dresses - these boots have to work hard.

The Balenciaga Cut Out boots (im still so Jel Miss Nads) are such a great pair of daytime flat boots, and they have inspired some really nice ahem, copies (let's call them homages!)

The Original Balenciaga Boots are of course not for everybody - they are expensive at around £795 and a properly young look - but there is no mistaking their popularity, and that they are responsible for a plethora of cut out boots on the High Street for A/W 2013

aww look, there's Miley - Twerking them ....... I didn't recognise her with her clothes on.

The Cut Out Ankle Boot - Balenciaga around £795

I didn't bite - Firstly, I just don't wear flat boots enough to even begin to justify the price, and secondly, Elli would have stolen them off of me in a New York Minute.

 But I loved the buckle detailing so I settled with the Topshop Aubrey ones
They have completely sold out (I got the last pair in my size on a really hot summer day in Windsor)

'Aubrey' Open Side Buckle Boots - Topshop £75 

If you cannot find a pair - the Arabel2 is a nice Alternative - also from Toppers

'Arabel2' Cut Out Boots - Topshop £70

This version, just released from ASOS is brilliant if you want the same look without quite the statement or price!
(oh no, I think I want these too)

'Astonished' Leather Cut Out Ankle Boots - ASOS £60.00

and these are cute too, just the right heel height for pounding pavements!

'Bianca' Cut Out Block Heel Ankle Boots - Miss KG £80

and how about these for a kicking pair of completely impractical but gorgeous taxi to dinner boots

Curved Leather Lace Up Ankle Boots - Gucci £705

or these

Leather Ankle Boots - Saint Laurent £595

Sigh, I can just smell that leather now!

Do any of these boots take your fancy?

Thanks for reading xx
