Shoe Style on Trial: Poste Mistress ‘Act on Impulse’ leather shoes

Poste_mistress Poste Mistress aren’t exactly known for making safe, sensible shoes that you can wear to go and visit your granny in, so these shoes aren’t much of a departure for them. What we want to know, though, is whether you like them or not.

We find ourselves admiring certain elements of the shoe: the mink/grey colour is nice, as is the button detailing on the sides (We’re suckers for buttons. Really.), but were the spats really necessary, we wonder? Or do they look a little bit like elephant skin – grey and wrinkled and, yes, ever so slightly creepy. (No offense to any elephants who happen to be reading this. Your skin is lovely – on you…)

Overall, we don’t think we’d rush to buy them, although we do concede that they’re better in black than they are in the picture shown above. What’s the verdict, then, Fashion Force? Guilty or innocent of Crimes Against Fashion?

(If you find them innocent, you can buy them from Office for £110).

Shoe Style on Trial: Skiathos cuff platform boots from Topshop


The Fashion Police love a nice platform sole. This, however… well, this isn’t one, as far as we’re concerned. It’s too gold, too shiny and for some reason, every time we look at it, we think of horses hooves. Which is weird, because as we all know, horses don’t wear platform boots, do they?

In other words, these Skiathos boots from Topshop get the thumbs down from us. It was a nice thought, Topshop, but we ain’t buying it – especially not when it’s £70/$145.

What do you think, readers? Do these boots make you want to clip clop all the way to your nearest Topshop, or you think they should just trot along to The Fashion Police cells? (No, we still don’t really know what’s with the "horse" references these inspire in us. Sorry. We’ll stop now.)
