Ankle Boots.

How do we feel about rumpled high-heeled ankle boots? I spotted a pair yesterday and I rather think they are fetching and would look the dog's bollocks with skinny jeans, but Etheline says they are vile and I"d look like Pat Benetar!-
(They do have a real eighties twang to them, but so what?)
Shebah, if you're floating about, I just know you will have a good solid opinion on this. Better than that preppy busy body and that's for sure.

UPDATE: Twenty Major has that clip where Jay Kay get's headbutted by the photographer up right now, most amusing, for he is a twat of the highest order and he should be loafed every other day if you ask me.

I suppose it might work if you have really skinny legs. If they do make you look like Pat Benatar though, then no, leave them. She will never be considered a fashion icon.

How tall are you, fmc? And what is your leg measurement - from edge of brazillion to base of heal?

You'll look great in them! I think they're fabulous! I'm sure you will never be tempted to join the MBT shoe brigade!

and that should of course have been "Heel" - jeez, my brain is on strike to-day, I keep forgetting things, is it possible to have early Alzheimers? From all that polluted air in London?

Huzzah! I knew you'd be a better person to ask than someone who thinks if it doesn't have a crocodile or a bloomin' polo pony on it it ain't clothes.
And you're sort of half right Emma, Pat Benatar might not be considered a fashion icon, but a quick gawk at this season's high street fashion opens up a whole pandora's box of eighties inspired items.

Hey, not everything that came out of the 80's was bad. I'd have to see the boots to have a real opinion, but if you like them, yours is the only opinion that matters.

We trust your judgement.

They're kind of a groovy deep purple, pointy toed, high high heel, and the ankle part is kind of...slouchy. I have a pair of skinny legs jeans that takes me two days of practically fasting to get into, but they are the shit. And these boots would be the cherry on the shit. If you will.

'The cherry on the shit', that's a new one for me but I like it.

That's not a very nice thing to say about Twenty Major.

They sound all-right to me. I have nothing against 80's slouch boots and I know you can carry off the heels. Skinny jeans are great too. But don't get sucked into the 80s retro vortex, fmc. The moment you start looking at legwarmers and thinking "Hmm!", you've gone too far. Below the precipice a dark chasm of rainbow legwarmers, shoulder pads and large satin bow hair-clips yawns and strange garbled Bros lyrics will echo across the chasm.

Should that happen you need to go right home and watch Fame until you can't stand it any more; then burn Fame (for fame is a burning thing) and throw away anything in your house that could be described as apricot. In 7-10 you should be feeling much better again.

I shit you not, I was looking at a batwing jumper earlier. Kill me now.
Actually kill me after CSI.

I grew up in the 80's but what the fuck is a batwing jumper. Personally, (for men), I think they should bring back overly baggy combat pants, tucked into pointy boots with multiple buckles. I was very guilty of this crime against good taste. I compounded it by wearing a bandana around the boot. This was considered outrageous in Limerick in 84.

I think I remember John Mc from Limerick.I think the priest gave us some pitchforks and torches to run him out of town.Boy did he squeal when we turned on him and looted his wardrobe for some really,really,really,really black clothes.

JOhn Mc, a batwing jumper is a jumper that when you raise your arms out to the sides it still hass oodles of material from wrist to hip. Hense 'wing' I had a whole sleew of them (in various colours) in the eighties and yesterday inRiver Island I was poking one again and saying 'ummmm.'
And boxing boots, I think they are making a come back... wait, a bandana round the boot? Oh dear.
Although really I cannot say another word about other people's fashions. I wore cerise polos over black...SKIPANTS! with matching cerise sock just peeping out over my original slouch boots and a man's jacket, sleeves rolled half mast. oh the shame.

Welcome Devin, you sound like my kinda gal, what with the chasing and the stealing.
Be careful with that John Mc though, he's well known around these parts as a bit of an operator, I mean buckles for gawd's sake? He only said that so we'd know he was one of the cool kids. I wanted bloody buckles for school and all I ended up with was sensible policewoman-style shoes that were indestructible.

My friend Derek and I used to cut a hell of a dash in Cardinal Folly in the Glasgow of the late eighties. He in his Bono boots and Miami Vice rigout and I in the more conventional Harris tweed jacket, shirt, tie and mustard waistcoat. Oh the high jinks. You wouldn't believe.

34" inside leg...Pat Benatar...We are young!...Love is a battlefield...Simple Minds...The American...Shannon...Let the music play...Great days.

Don't worry Docky, I know of what you speak. I went around wearing a man's jumper belted at the waist and a black tie robbed from Grandad's trunk for the longest time, singing 'Walking on the Chinese Wall falsetto. And I loved 'dopn't you forget about me' and the thought The Breakfast Club should have given me a part to make it more 'real' Coz it was 'literally my life, 'kay?'

The day I found the royal blue beret and wore it to a birthday party covering one half of my hair while the other side was so backcombed and sprayed it looked like a poodle had tried to savagely attack my scalp had become lodged, was a day of true eighties splender. Naturally my friend still has that photo and shows it to all and sundry for she is a wench of the highest order.

For me it was the black German Army surplus combats tucked into DM's(No.Other.Footwear.Allowed.) and the collarless Grandfather shirts (d'ye remember them?)in black,white or maaaybe grey.Colour (and comic) relief was provided by a waistcoast and the bloody lip you got for having a haircut "like tha'langer from de Cure"

Sweet Jesus, collarless Grandfather shirts. I had one in paisley with a sort of fish tail at the end.
