DESERT WALKING

Monday, 8 March 2010


I might be a few seasons too late but I'm having a moment with Clarks's desert boots. I want a biscuit-coloured pair (a shade darker than the first picture as that particular colour reminds me a little too much of the 'Timberland' era, which, may I say, I was never a part of - always DMs for me as a teen). Check out the snazzy gold ones! Is that a step too far?

In my fashion dreams, I'd be wearing them with this Isabel Marant dress:



and braids in my hair. Also, since this is a dream scenario, I'd have legs up to my armpits (in reality a flat boot and this kind of dress would be canklecity).

(Desert boots from Clarks, dress available at Net-a-Porter.)

  1. It's a pretty blue dress. With roosters. And horses! It's a fashion dream come true! And Clarks always really has the most cute, sort of awkward-looking shoes.

  3. so good! the desert thing is perfect, fits in with some of the exotic elements of this season (Walton Ford's prints for Mother of Pearl and Heal Fashionlab's fantastic flamingo prints and feline cocktail rings galore!) i'll happily partake in all of the above. my pale Scottish skin needs SOME sort of exotic rejuvenation! ha ha ha. plus, wearing boots like that is definite scope for pretending to be in an Indiana Jones film, which was essentially my childhood dream. combining something vaguely fashionable with that is almost too much for me to cope with! i'm quite certain you've never sported a cankle, but i have seen wedge versions of that style of shoe (though personally i still prefer the flats), at Urban Outfitters for one thing, cankle avoided, 100%!

  6. I think 'The Desert Thing' is slowly coming up as the next in-thing like military is right now, ever since Christopher Bailey sent them down the runway 3 seasons ago.
    We like Clarks though 'Wallabees' will always be my favourite classic.

  7. Yeah, I've been thinking about these boots too. I really loved the Harris Tweed limited edition version they brought out (although I'm sure it was for men!) They would have looked wonderful with wrinkly socks and thick wooly tights. I kinda wish I had bought them now, as I saw them half price in the sale! I bet they wouldn't have them small enough though...
