My new shoe obsession

Hello world,

It’s been a while since I bought myself a really pretty pair of shoes, and for the last few months I’ve been really good in reigning in my usual spending habits, what with working seven days a week and having no money, but I’m afraid my good spell won’t last for much longer.

That’s because I’ve fallen in love. With a pair of ASOS boots!

I know, I know. I don’t have the money for them, and they can’t make me happy and they will eventually get destroyed and leave me, but just look at them! I can give them a good home; put them with some very pretty outfits and make them feel loved. Or at least until the next new crush comes along.

ASOS Performer multi-buckle platform shoeboot, €72.16

But in all honesty, is it just me or do they remind you of a pair of Alexander McQueen boots from the spring/summer 2011 collection?

They both have those pirate-style buckles and while I couldn’t find the Alexander McQueen pair in white, they do come in roughly the same colour. Since I can’t have the original, I’ll just have to settle for these ASOS pair instead.

I wonder if I can put on that gold toe-cap on the ASOS pair though…

Until then,





Fresh out of college with an MA in Journalism, a passion for clothes, fashion and styling shoots, I was also the fashion editor of a magazine my colleagues and I set up called SCOPE magazine, which was disbanded three years ago. For now I'm just a freelance journalist and blogger.
Other than obsessing about fashion, I love theology and history, writing apocalyptic fiction (it's weird, I know!) and the occasional weeekend of horse-riding if I have the time and I don't injure myself in the process.
