If you follow me on Instagram you’ll be tired of seeing these by now.
They are my new shoes, Toga Pullas.
There are some things we all have soft spots for even though they’re not “in fashion” or are sometimes distinctly unfashionable. I suffered many “how 80s” comments for years due to my love of ripped jeans and I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard “Hammer Time” being hummed as I sashay past in my harems.
Cowboy boots are another soft spot of mine. My parents bought me some Harley Davidson boots when I was in my teens. They were a knee high Cowboy style with a Cuban heel and a huge eagle on the front. How I loved them. I remember too the cowboy boots one of my sisters bought in a thrift store in the US and I claimed on her return home. The sole cracked and still I wore them. I think it’s the same love that draws me to these boots. They look like the boots to conquer the world in.
I always feel a bit silly posting outfits I have just tried on rather than worn out yet but here are a few ways I’ll wear them. (I’m sorry the photos aren’t the greatest – this was during nap time with the curtains drawn. I am also suffering from under eye burns after a particularly painful incident with some Kiehls cream)

You get the picture. I will wear them a lot.
I tried these in Zara and they’re really lovely. They don’t have buckles but are properly pointed and have the same vibe as the Toga Pulllas. The front looks patent in the photo but isn’t as shiny in real life. They are very statement – they wouldn’t mould to your foot I don’t think, they’d remain structured which is part of the reason I was so tempted (before I got the Togas)
Hope you’re having a good week. Weekend soon.
