With her love of mixing colourful vintage with modern fashion, we thought our 70s vibes Duncan Suede Shearling Boot would be perfect for her winter wardrobe. Does she agree?
You have a time machine. What time and place do you travel to just for the clothes?
Most definitely summer in 1950s New York City. Fashion in the 50s was something else – tailored high waist pencils skirts, petticoats under swing dresses, colorful capris and twin set cardigans accentuated the female figure in the most beautiful way.
Once I get there, I would explore as many jazz clubs as possible. Get swinging and jiving to my heart’s content!
“I really like how comfortable, stylish and practical it is. The plush lining makes it so comfy to wear and the insole hugs your feet nicely.”
What’s the biggest fashion mistake you’ve ever made?
Crop tops and low-rise jeans! I have no idea why anyone thought showing half your torso to the world was a good idea.
What’s your earliest memory of caring about how you dressed?
Probably when I was five years old and my mum bought me the prettiest pair of silver and pink sparkly shoes. They were the most beautiful things I had ever seen! I wore them with these pretty white socks with lace on the ankles and truly believed I was a princess. A real-life princess! I wore them nonstop and wrecked them within a month.
Which fictional character do you wish you could dress like?
Midge from The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. Every piece she wears is perfection, even her accessories – cut, color, silhouettes. They add a fascinating layer to her fast-talking courageous character.
How did the boots handle NYC weather?
These extremely comfy boots have made walking over a fresh powder of snow, sleet, ice or rain effortless and fab! Not only that, it’s flattering mid-calf length, pretty suede leather decorative braid detail, and solid wedge heel, make it look less like a snow boot and more like your fab everyday pair of boots.
“I wore out on an extremely wet day and I was amazed how dry and comfortable I was!”
