Quite often if I’m doing a post about a particular item, I try and include at least a couple of alternatives but on this occasion I’m just sticking to these boots, as I really love them. But you know me – the odd alternative is bound to creep in!
Jones Nala boots, (£112 in the sale instead of £160) until 31st October
For a few years now I’ve been after some boots with a bit of detail on them. Of course the Chloe Susanna’s (£850) started it all off several years ago now and you know, if my legs looked like this in them then maybe I could be tempted (well, aside from the price tag that is) but they don’t. So we need consider that particular issue no further.

The other problem that I have with these is that the heel slopes in a little too much and there are just a few too many buckles on them and they are slightly too bling. Lovely on others but I just feel a bit heavy legged and a bit like Adam Ant. “Stand and deliver oh, oh your money or your life…..”
For those who like this style but who aren’t in the market for an £850 pair of boots, there’s the Alabama style from Office which come in at £90 (there’s 20% off with the code TREAT.)
Or for similar, there’s also the Hush Derby boot (£220)
OK, so having digressed and having gone off at a totally random tangent, I’m coming back to the style I was considering initially – and offering an alternative in the form of the Dune Queenie House of Fraser (£104 instead of £130). Now I tried these too – how handy is it that Jones and Dune are right next door? But for me, the Jones ones just pipped the Dune ones. To be honest it was all about where they finished on my legs (in relation to my veins). I kid you not!

But coming back to the Jones Nala boots, here are two more shots. I don’t think that I’ve really articulated what it is that I like about them so in a nutshell – firstly, they make me feel taller (that could well be the heel) second the block heel balances out my legs better, third they are a little pointy which feels quite elegant, fourth they make me feel much cooler than I actually am because they have studs and stuff and fifth, they are really soft leather with a soft leather lining. I’m sure that there are many similar ones out there but these just give an idea.
Ooooh well that was all a bit of a crazy all over the post wasn’t it? It must be something to do with Halloween.
