All Booted up!!

As you may know, I had 2 items on my Fall wishlist-a denim shirt, which I picked up last week and the other was some heeled ankle boots in black. I'd seen some online, but am wary about buying, because of fit and comfort-I personally like to try and buy there and then.

So, a recent thrifting trip brought dividends as the 2 last shops visited yielded me 2 pairs of black leather as new ankle boots-hurrah!!

This first pair is by Dune and are slightly higher that ankle length, but thats fine-the fit is just right. These were from Norwood Trust charity shop and were £6.


So, after leaving the last but one shop I went into Sense charity shop and spotted these black leather Marks & Spencer ankle boots which were only £5!!



So, I'm totally booted up-I've a couple of pairs of flat black ankle boots already, knee length flat and heeled black boots, plus some French Connection brown leather and suede boots that I've had for a few years and barely worn twice.

How is your winter shopping coming along?

The Haute-Shopper said...

Wow, amazing finds! Both boots look like they're in such great condition and they're chic as well! I'm searching for boots as well, though I haven't quite decided on the style. But I plan on doing some thrift/vintage shopping when I'm in the UK next (I still believe it's the best place to do so). Hope you're having a lovely weekend so far :)

Nic said...

I just found your blog and love it! I recently found got a pair of black leather ankle boots. They're so cute and I wear them everywhere! Hope you enjoy yours as much as I enjoy mine! (I'm sure you will!)

C.Elizabeth and Natalia said...

Those are totally adorable! Perfect style and heels... Both different but equally stylish!

AsianCajuns (Lauren) said...

As usual- seriously awesome finds! And both pairs look so classic, you'll be sure to wear them for years!

On my winter list is over-the-knee boots, and I'm still debating how much I actually want to spend. Also, it's hard for me to think of cool-weather clothing as we swelter in Atlanta for a few more months. I can wear boots by mid-October... maybe ;)

Sharon Rose said...

Thanks everyone-will look forward to seeing your items for fall too!

Kristin said...

Cutie coot booties!

Savvy Gal said...

Sharon Rose said...

Hi ladies-thanks so much!!

budget chic said...

Sharon Rose said...

Hi budget chic-yes, I agree-thanks my dear!

Bonnie said...

I've bought several new pairs of dark denim (one Joe's, two Old Navy and Gap), one long-sleeved Mixie dress, and a gorgeous pair of gray suede boots from J Crew (extended calf, yay!).

Sharon Rose said...

Hi Bonnie-good buys, I too got a dark denim Topshop pair of jeans. Your boots sound gorgeous!
