    I bought a pair of "snow boots" off Ebay; vintage, lined in sheepskin, and trimmed in mink, black suede ankle boots. The brand is "Alaska boots" or somesuch. They look pretty similar to the two above. Adorable! Can't post a picture, though.

    These are nice and inexpensive. Looks like they are vegan too!

    I actually just picked these up from ModCloth- and I'm horribly disappointed to find they don't look anywhere as cute and charming in a size 9!
    I tried them on and couldn't get over how frumpy they looked on my big ole feet :(
    Oh, well- another return to make.

    I have these too, in tan, and I'm a size 10US and I think they look adorable on! Funny how subjective some things are - but I adore mine, big feet or no!

    Beauty is always in the eye of the beholder. Just look at fashion across the ages.

    Glad you found them, let me know how they work out if you buy them!
    Also glad the Miss L Fire ones are working for some, they're too cute.

    I got two pairs for winter and they haven't arrived, but I'm really excited!

    ASOS styled the Miss L Fire booties really weirdly. I think they look better in their own photos - I just love mine and have worn them every day for a fortnight! Old lady slippers in shoe form! :D [​IMG]

    Fleur, you are just one of those lucky gals that looks absolutely amazing in everything! I keep looking at the photos of them online and thinking how adorable they look and wishing they worked for me. :eusa_doh:

    I've finally bitten the bullet and bought the Draper of Glastonbury boots! My feet were cold this week, so I decided I had to do it.

    ... placed the order yesterday, they were delivered at 7 this morning. Amazing! And they are perfect and gorgeous, not "granny"-ish at all. A good thing too, because it is snowing outside right now!

    I've been thinking of getting these in the beige, they are available in the shop that I work in so I'd get 40% off them... The fur on them is really soft and I love to have a heel due to my serious lack of height!

    I got these lacey Doc Martens for Christmas and am completely smitten. They're honestly the most comfortable heels I've ever worn; I could walk for miles in them! I'm not sure how well they'll go with my 40s and 50s clothes, but they have a Victorian aesthetic I really like. I'm also a serious sucker for lace!

    Aah, I've been drooling over these for an era and a look at your blog reminded me how much I coveted them. Anyway, I managed to nab the very last pair, which happened to be in my size, from ASOS, and whoopee! at half price! Merry Christmas to me!

    Thank you so much, Fleur!
