Fashion Steal Of The Week


Dolce&Gabbana boots 1“A studded metallic heel elevates a beautifully embroidered silhouette in soft Italian fabric.”

At $3895.00, these Dolce & Gabanna boots are a great deal. They are made of spandex, nylon and virgin wool, but lined in leather! Oooooh, right?

Dolce&Gabbana boots 2Look at all that crap sewn onto the fabric! It must have taken some half-blind old Italian lady a long time to accomplish this. Or maybe it was a poor little bambina who has to support her large family of immigrants. Whatever.

At nearly $4,000, these boots might seem like an obscenity; but I once paid $900 at Barney’s for a pair of boots I have now worn exactly twice and may not wear again. So, for many women, even Sea of Shoes and her ilk, the price here is no big deal. And that makes me feel very fucking sad and remorseful, I can promise you.

The only thing left to say about these Statement boots (besides where would you war them and what if it rained) is that they are pull-on style, meaning no zipper.

No fucking zipper? What’s their problem?

    “Fashion steal of the week”?!

    Whoever stole that hideous piece of crap should have gone to Specsavers!

    If that reference is totally mysterious to you then please go here:
    and watch some of the very best adverts – ever!

    Dj – The statement is ‘Look,I’m an ass!’ if you’re wearing them.

    Hey, I come here for a laugh. You deliver very well. Can you please explain why you don’t have instagram though? You should get one. Or if you already have an account, can you let me know what your name is so I can follow?

  5. Sister Wolf says:

    Luxirare – Hey, how the fuck are you? No instagram because I don’t have a smart phone – I am the last hold-out. I don’t want to be staring at a device when I go out. BUT! My tumblr is beautiful –

    whoa luxirare!

  7. Andra says:

    I’d demand a bloody zipper for $ 4,000.
    Otherwise, it’s just another schmutter.

  8. Dj says:

    Thank you sister.

  9. I’m going out on a limb here, but …… I love them. I’m not sure id love them enough to pay 4,000 clams, but they are beautiful. More is more if you ask me.

  10. Actually, I wonder if that key thing could be scratched off?

  11. Sister Wolf says:

    Madam restora – Hahaahhhahaha

  12. Eek says:

    Put them down! Sister, you have many more and better boots than that. They are Laura Ashley meets s&m. And Dolce and Gabanna are not doing their best work in prison, are they?

  13. Kellie says:

    Don’t you just love their “soft floral chic vs tough metal stud juxtaposition” ?

    I will get us matching pairs for Christmas, as they are surely more appropriate
    as winter boots. Where constant snow and salt stains will ruin them quickly.
    Also, the back strain from struggling to pull them on.

    Irresistable : )

  14. Alicia says:

    I got stuck midway in a pull-on boot once. It was a terrible 15 minutes and my mother was laughing at me the whole time.

    Needless to say, I don’t buy shoes in physical stores much anymore for fear of trying them on.

    Sister Wolf, I am gutted – just bought a new pair of wellies for walking the dog and now I realise I could have had these…
