Shoeper Shoe Challenge # 56: Wrong Side of the Tracks

Shoeper Shoe Challenge # 56: Wrong Side of the Tracks

What: Zara tan over-the-knee boots
When: Wednesday, November 3rd, 2010
Where: Miniature railway line
With: Coat (Next), bag (Miss Selfridge), dress (Topshop)

Remember when I said there weren’t enough railway stations around here to use as photo locations? Well, about two weeks after making that statement, I found one! This is actually a miniature railway (needless to say, it wasn’t running when these were taken!) and it’s in need of a lick of paint or two, but I liked the look of it all the same, so I made a mental note to come back and take some photos.

These are the Zara over-the-knee boots I bought back in September. I actually wore them on the day I bought them, but didn’t have the camera with me to get any pictures, so here they are again.

As you can see, it’s now so cold I’ve had to abandon my beloved trench coats in favour of thick wool ones. I was still frozen, which will be my permanent state now until May at least.

I’m looking mighty cheerful here for someone who was terrified she’d be flattened by a train at any second, even although she knew perfectly well that it wasn’t running…

My faithful companion.

On the railway bridge.

Have a great weekend, everyone!


  1. The boots are really lovely and go terrific with the coat, but I’m afraid your handbag steals the show. It’s gorgeous… it makes we want to just rush out now and buy one… but I can’t, I’m being good!


  2. I rarely comment but I must say this is one of my favourite posts. I love the pic where you are on the bridge and your hair caught the mind.. Lovely!! Keep up the good work, your blogs are a delight to read :)

  3. oooooh! I don’t normally go for over-the-knee OR heeled boots, but there’s something about them that are unusually NICE! (maybe it’s the tan leather. I seem to be attracted to anything that’s tan leather.)
    Anyway, you look v. v. nice and your dog is actually ADORABLE.

  4. Those shoes are amazing. And you styled them so well. I also love how they match your hair and bag. Lovely!
