Cheap Bootie Fashion Mullet


That may be my favourite title ever, although I'm probably going to get porn spam now. Meh...but first, let me explain.

A month or so ago, I found these short, western-inspired booties in a sale on ASOS for £17. They have all-leather uppers with a classic wood stacked cowboy boot heel. Having only ever owned one other pair of cowboy boots when I was much younger and riding horses, I decided that £17 seemed like a good enough price to warrant some experimentation.

So far, I find that these booties look best when worn with an above the knee to midi length full skirt, although I also like them with skinny pants. They also look surprisingly good with a cropped pant, something I would not have thought of initially. These booties really work well at taking some of the sweetness out of a look to give it some edge. Today I paired them with the feminine detailing and prim silhouettes of a beaded cardigan and peplum top with a peter pan collar, worn with a skinny ankle pant. Like a sort of fashion mullet; all business on top, and a foot-stompin' hoedown on the bottom!

  2. LOL!! Best blog title ever. I have a couple pair of these ankle cowboy boots and do find them pretty versatile (and comfortable). I like your "mullet" look.

  4. I've gotten a lot of use out of my black cowboy boots but they are a bit of a pest to wear with trousers - only skinny jeans will tuck in and I find the jeans over boots look very dated on me. I did buy an embroidered beige pair but I haven't worn them much. Somehow they're much harder to style than the plain black ones. I keep them in the hope that they'll be useful in Spring.

  7. All business on top, but pretty business! And a hoedown on the lowdown. That's what's so fun about shoes - they're kind of far away from the other focal points that you can get wild or funky. Cool outfit!

  8. I love the post title and the boots - that little cardigan is a gorgeous colour on you. Someone one once hit my blog with the search terms porn apron. Go figure!

  10. You had me at the title!! And I love the booties. I love all booties, actually, but those are rockin'. And since I'm from Alabama and live in Kentucky, I should (but don't actually) know a thing or two about hoedowns. I'm racking my brain trying to recall if I've ever been to one…. All I can say is if I ever have, you'd be the most stylish person there!!

  11. Really, as great as the boot are ... and they are a fabulous find and value ... it's because you're wearing them that they look grand. So cute, and such a great time of year for booties like these!

  12. These are all very beautiful. Thanks for sharing. We always need to own at least on pair of each so that we have something for any occasion! My favorite would always be waterproof boots though!
