So here we go, after a brief festive re-introduction to Five Take, we're ready to start the new year with a bang!....(Oh I didn't mean it to sound so cheerleader-y, I just am *that* excited!)
So for those of you who don't know, Five Take is a group of 5 bloggers made up of Nicole, Rebecca, Claire, Gina and myself, each week we select a theme and interpret said theme in our own style.
This week: Boots. I don't know about you but as soon as September hits I can't wait to whip out my boots, I love boots especially knee high boots, but along with that comes a sense of sadness because with my now famous (I'm always banging on about them) 19 inch calves, I find it very difficult to find boots to fit, every year I would head into Evans with a sadness in my soul, knowing full well that there would be a slim (ha ha) chance I'd find a pair to fit. So a couple of years ago I decided to broaden my boot sights and search elsewhere.
This particular pair where purchased from La Redoute about 2 years ago, they were on the pricey side (around £130) but the fit is perfect, they have an elasticated panel but its not (unlike some other boots i have) stretched to within an inch of its life. I urge you to look at the ones they have this year, I pretty much want them all, my bank account however, does not.
A quick note on the dress, this is a prime example of cut verses size. This is an 18 (UK) from Primark (notorious for small sizing plus I've never been an 18 ever.) yet it fits with bags of room, so always try something on even if it says its not your size.
Make sure you head on over to the other four Five Takers and see what they've come up with......
