Tis’ the season to be boot-wearing, so what’s in store? Quite a lot of overpriced stuff and the usual lack of choice for those with a bigger foot… that’s what’s in store on the HK high street! So what’s an Instant Goddess to do?! Turn on the ‘puter and get clicking of course! Once again it’s hallelujah for online shopping, and with more and more stores not only delivering to the ‘Kong but in record speedy times – internet shopping has to be embraced to get more bang for your buck (and the right shoe size of course!).
This is what got the Instant Goddess radar twinkling this week in the boot stratosphere…
The best way to kick off (pun intended!) is ALWAYS with a show-stopping party boot or two. Add these to your party armour and even the angry Queen Bee in the corner who’s on a detox will think twice about messing with you!
Clockwise from top left: River Island Black Embellished Knee High Sock Boots $1395.40; Next Black Sexy Buckle Boot $679; River Island Gold Snake Skin Boots $890; ASOS Miss KG Bailey Studded Toe Point Ankle Boots was $1083.29, now $866.63; ASOS ALDO Floivon Bronze Pointed Chelsea Boot $1444.38; ASOS River Island Leopard Print Point Boots $1155.50
These boots are made for walking… ok, enough of the singing – what about the FASH? Party boots aside, comfort is the order of the day with these numbers below. As you’ll see, Instant Goddess does love a low wedge to give you enough height to slim the leg in those tight jeggings, but low enough so you can still scoot around town.
Top row left to right: ASOS Karma Leather Over The Knee Boots $1227.72; ASOS Annontate Leather Ankle Boots $866.63; Next Black Front Lace Snow Boots $627; Bottom row left to right: River Island Brown Borg Panel Crepe Wedge Boots $825; Shopbop Diane Von Furstenburg Paula Wedge Boots $2807.50; Shopbop Steven Intyce Wedge Boots $1200.06.
So, we’ve done feet… what about heads? During my trawl of ASOS one night, I discovered LA brand Spirit Hoods. And what do you think of these? Of course, probably it won’t get cold enough for these in the good old ‘852, but if you’re heading off to freezing climes for Chrimbo then you might be grateful to snuggle up in one of these. Mr Instant Goddess thinks they’re vulgar, but I think they would look pretty cool over a big, long puffa coat.
ASOS Spirit Hoods Night Hawk Shawl and ASOS Jack Rabbit Shawl, both $938.85, reduced from $2,296.56
Midweek Meal Inspiration
This week it’s Shortcut Sausage Meatballs courtesy of Nigella Lawson, who has grabbed headlines in the UK of late (and probably feels like saying “balls” to ex-hubby Charles Saatchi!) But enough of the asides… quick, easy, comfort food to keep you warm at night – surely even Mr Saatchi can’t argue with that! (Although apparently he prefers burnt toast and weak tea to Nigella’s creations… hmm!). #TEAMNIGELLA
Yogi tea saying of the week: “Act, don’t react”
Instant Goddess saying of the week: “These boots are made for walking, and that’s just what they’ll do, one of these days these boots are gonna walk all over you…”
Until next time Goddesses, and remember you are ALWAYS, ALWAYS worth it.
