In Pusuit: The White Boot


Étoile Drew leather ankle boot, Isabel Marant $585

From California hippie culture, to Parisian it-girls, I’ve been spying the white bootie in many a different places and have been tempted to (actively, as in actually do something other than hope they will appear) pursue them. Instagram does not help ease the temptation. But I like them, I really do. The more I resist them, the more I realise they are just as classic an item as a black ballet flat. Let’s call them the lesser known cousin of the eternally elegant white court shoe.

Paired with a cropped denim pant? I am Jeanne Damas*.

With a mini skirt? I am Catherine Deneuve*.


Black pants? I am Kate Moss*.

So feeling cool while wearing them seems unavoidable. I think I shall open a tab and explore.

Yes, these will do. They are marvellous.

* I imagine myself as them. Metaphor used for dramatic effect.
