I had a different set of bag and shoes planned for this week, but I abandoned that idea as soon as the postman came this morning!
Ever since I saw the Duchess of Cambridge pictured in the gorgeous New Dry suede and faux fur booties last week, I was desperate to get my hands on a pair. I already had aspirations for some Ruby Drys, but wedges are so much easier to walk in, and how could anyone resist the beautiful fur trim of these gorgeous shoes? They’re designed by Marvin K in Italy for Aquatalia, and exclusively available in the UK through Russell & Bromley here. As soon as Kate was seen in them, of course, they sold out, but after stalking the page for days I was rewarded when my size came up on Tuesday! (In the US, the style is called Neptune, as you can see above – although the fur trim is rabbit. They were on sale but now are sold out.)
These shoes are just as beautiful in person as they look online. Comfy, snug and super smart, they go perfectly with jeans, which is exactly what I wanted! They come already protected from the elements (hence the ‘Dry’ part of the name, which is a range of boots in suede from the brand), but you can also purchase Nano spray from Russell & Bromley to top up the finish. I paired them with my Lanesley bag from Hobbs, which is one of my most frequently used bags and puts up with all kinds of abuse without complaining. The Lanesley was a bit of a replikate for the Mulberry Polly Push Lock bag Kate was seen with in 2011, and is the perfect size for an iPad too! But no one cares about that, do they? (Sorry, Lanesley, you know I love you!) This post is ALL ABOUT THE SHOES. And so I leave you with this glorious sight:
Worth every penny! Keep checking back to the listing for these boots on Russell & Bromley’s site here, because as the returns come in from last week’s orders, quite a few new sizes keep popping up! Good luck…
