Puss don’t need Givenchy

Thankfifi in Mango boots (1 of 9)

Probably my favourite sale score so far is this pair of boots.  I’ve had my eye and heart on them for a couple of months and the pricetag was the only thing not screaming ‘buy me’.  Then the half price sale rolled around, there was a tense moment where we got hold of one boot in my size (it was in the window), a stock room search followed and the pair were rightfully reunited… with me.  The shape is reminiscent of the Givenchy Shark boot which sparked a knee high love affair for so many this season but, to me, this pair have more to offer, namely fringing.  The husband has already dubbed them ‘The Harley Boots’.

    Mr K is so well behaved as well – our little fluffball won’t go out if it’s raining!

    Love the boots and the whole look! Your hair looks gorgeous.
    This is why I was so excited about my Manolo’s because they have the same vibe as the Givenchy as well..obsessed with those!

      so glad you like it so much – think it’s one of my favourites too – but then that’s probably just because I am so in love with these new boots!

    GAH!!! I just ordered these on Christmas day from Mango, then saw your post and was afraid they were going to email me to tell me the boots were sold out. Luckily this afternoon I got an email letting me know my order has shipped. Wheeeee!!! Cannot. WAIT to get them. You look faboo, as usual.
