Ask a Geek: Boot and coat question.

I got an interesting letter from a reader. It was interesting mostly for the awful grammer I was forced to read, it was painful. Please don’t send emails in this fashion.

Well Mina, I can’t tell you what is trendy because I really don’t follow that, but I can give you my opinion. I’m really into flat and ankle boots. I am also liking the thigh high boots even though I don’t own a pair. Riding inspired boots are always on my favourite list. As with many years the slouch boot is also very popular. I’m assuming you are in the GTA area so I’ll list a few favourites I have at Nine West, Aldo and Browns.

Low Heeled Boots
Fornarina in brown
Brown boots by Browns Couture

High Heeled Boots
Blue by Aldo
Brown boots by Browns Couture

Flat Boots
Blue by Aldo
Black by Aldo
Chanel style from Browns Id

Athletic Style
Purple and quilted
Black wedge

That’s a few to give you some ideas, I could go on forever. Also check out the boots from Fluevog that I’ve posted.

As for the leopard print coat, I can’t in good conscious tell you that it’s acceptable. I hate animal print for the most part. If it is used, it needs to be in small amounts like a handbag (yuck) or shoes (a bit better) or scarves.
