WHERE FOR ART THOU WINTERY BOOTS?
It has been days since my search has started and till this day, I have yet to find the perfect pair of winter boots for my upcoming Shanghai and South Korea trip.
First up, I spotted this gorgeous pair of sneaker boots from Chanel. Retailing for SGD 960, they're made of canvas with leather lining. Subtlety is the name of the game with these as you can barely recognize it's something from Chanel apart from the small double Cs on the side of the shoes. They're comfortable and fabulous staples - the only issue I had with it is that for what it's worth it's too plain and simple AND it's canvas. Then again it is Chanel. I guess it's just not for me. I'd rather save that money up and grab myself one of the iconic brand's bags.
Up next, I found this delicious pair of camel boots from Chloe. The leather is soft and supple - the type that ages well, a pair that can last for a while. It also has this great little detail of a silver buckle behind the ankle where you will find the brand name. Just fabulous! The problem I'm supposed to use this for winter - I don't think the leather will bide well in wintery weather. The other thing is size. It fits me though if I were to wear socks with these [which is of course a mandatory in the cold], then I'll only be staying in the hotel as I won't be able to walk in them.
Retailing for only SGD 590, I was honestly tempted to grab a pair just for use here in Singapore. But then again, I'm not looking for a pair just for here. I need winter boots! And so the search continues. I hope I get to find one, otherwise will just have to make do with what I have.
