They say absence makes the heart grow fonder. If it is at all possible, I am even 'fonder' of my Chloe Susanna boots having left them at the cobbler for a week to have their soles protected (better late than never). After picking them up all polished and gleaming this weekend, I couldn't wait to put them back on.
Chloe Susanna boots in red are available here, and here, and in black here, here, and here. Net-a-Porter has them in black with gold studs here and with silver studs here.
I am trying hard to resist the blush/nude pair. At first I didn't like them (I thought the gold studs are what 'made' the boot), but am thinking how versatile these'd be for summery outfits, and good when worn with bare legs...
Wore my red pair with a Camilla&Marc black wool-jersey 'tuxedo' mini dress I've had for years (maybe 7+)
It is about time I share pics of my other 'nappy' bag, my Balenciaga Courier in Anthracite, a (slightly) smaller version of my Extra Courier bag I use almost every day. I don't know why, but Balenciaga no longer makes this size (and it was so popular!).
You can find the Courier in dark cobalt here, and in pale grey here (the bag looks so weird on the model! It slouches much more, and looks more like this when worn), and mauve here.
I am so so happy I found these bags, they make a perfect 'nappy' bag, and the extra courier in particular is great as a travel bag. They're light, roomy, and importantly for me, sling across the body beautifully...
