Office ‘Lucky Star’ studded boots in pale pink suede 

Remember Office’s ‘Lucky Star’ boots? The ones that are a dead-ringer for Chloe’s iconic ankle boots (although a fraction of the price), and that I became briefly obsessed with last autumn, after seeing so many of my favourite bloggers and instagrammers wearing them that I actually ended up ordering a pair in the Office sale?

God, I loved those boots – in theory, anyway. I even loved them when I took them out of the box, too: I was instantly smitten with the gold hardware and black leather, and I thought I’d found the answer to all of my winter footwear woes. Then I put them on, turned to the mirror, and realised that I looked like I had a couple of boats for feet: big ones, too. Cruise-liners. Now, I don’t think I have particularly big feet for my size, but when I wore those boots, I was just ALL feet. My legs looked like twigs in comparison, and the overall look was just kind of hilarious, really. I knew as soon as I put them on that I would have to send them back, and I did – reluctantly. They were one of those styles that I really wanted to like, but they were just so far removed from my usual style, and looked so odd when I was wearing them that I knew they’d just sit around never being worn, so I knew I’d made the right decision.

Why, then, am I now so drawn to this pink suede version that’s just been released? I mean, I know the colour is different, but the shape is exactly the same, and I know the pink version won’t be any more flattering on me than the black were. I still kind of love them, though: don’t you hate it when that happens? When you find something you really like, but just KNOW won’t look good on you? (And yes, I know clothes don’t always have to be “flattering” – I’m one of those old-fashioned people who doesn’t feel comfortable in clothes I know don’t work for me, though…)

Of course, this style might not work for me, but I know they’ll look fantastic on so many other people: maybe you’ll be one of them?

  • They make the model’s feet look big, too. Anything that looks bad on the model can’t be good for the rest of us. To save money and heartache, just get 2 shoeboxes, rubber band them to your feet, and clomp around a la Frankenshoeperwoman.
