New Lunar Year – New Knee-High Boots!
Valentine’s day came and went in a flash of face masks and roses (bought for myself, of course). I hope you all had a lovely day celebrating love – whether is was romantic, your best friends, your family, or your pets! There’s no time like the present to let the people around you know how much you care for and appreciate them. And, of course, no time like Valentine’s day to show yourself some love and appreciation in the form of a new pair of gorgeous French Sole shoes (which I definitely made sure to do).
So, Valentine’s day done, what’s the next thing to look forward to celebrating lock-down-style?!
The Lunar New Year! The Lunar New Year is a celebration most commonly linked with (but not the same as!) the Chinese New Year. Celebrating 12 full cycles of the lunar moon, rather than the Earth’s cycle around the sun, the Lunar New Year is a time for new beginning and family. And for the French Sole family, it’s a time for a flash sale to celebrate the beginning of a brand new pair of shoes in your spring collection!
So what, Amelie, you may ask, are some blossoming examples of the beautiful shoes available during the Lunar New Year sale? Well, dear reader, let me tell you. First and foremost, to my delight, the Ebury collection! Since these sleek, stylish knee-high boots popped into the store’s collection over Winter I’ve had my eye on them, and now my chance has come, with all three designs (a choice of supple black leather, smooth black suede or even an eye-catching navy suede) on offer for thirty percent off! I was stunned and popped the black leather and navy suede straight in my online basket (and yes, I am in fact wearing the navy as I write this). Perfect to show off during my daily walks, I match my black leather with black tights, my black mini skirt (risky in the wind, but my snug winter coat holds it down!) and a sweet blue jumper. These boots are honestly a steal!
And if you fancy a classic ballet shape, feast your eyes – the Henrietta, a timeless, is currently on offer in a multitude of stunning, bright and bold colours in the patent crocodile finish. I went ahead and added coral to my collection (a colour I surprised myself by not already having?!), so fresh and sweet – as soon as there are a few more sun rays coming from the clouds I’ll be whacking them off to show off on my daily walk! A pair of white trousers and a light blouse, perhaps a cute coral Alice band will go perfectly – I can’t wait to feel the warmth of the sun on my face while I stroll the park in my new Henrietta.
As always, stay safe, dear readers.
