I Covet Thee, Chelsea Boots

Allegra Chelsea Platform Boots by Topshop
Black Chelsea Boots by River Island

After a week of being some what absent from the blogging world I am hoping that I will find the time to fit in a fair few posts this week to make up for it. I'm not a fan of drafting something before I do it and not just blog posts; if I am going to do something, I am going to do it and finish it there and then! Think I need to train myself to stagger things a bit more and hopefully I'll be able to fit everything in around uni. 

This weekend the boy came up to visit me at uni as he has just finished recording his album in the studio. I am so excited to hear the finished product, I've heard so many snippets of it here and there and it sounds bloomin' amazing. Have a sneaky taster of the album and get yourselves a free download while you're at it here: www.myspace.com/weareyaaks I PROMISE you it is worth a listen. So before rehearsals resumed for their tour supporting Little Comets this month (which might look and sound a little like this) it was great to have a full couple of days just to hang out and he finally introduced me to the magic that is Peter Kay, (I live under a rock). There is nothing better than laughing 'til your tummy aches, and that we certainly did. 

So, onto my I Covet Thee post which this week goes to the Chelsea Boot that has for some time now been doing the rounds of the fashion world. I am completely in love with the Topshop ones but I just cannot bring myself to spend that much money on them, even with their 20% off at the moment! I found a very similar pair in River Island, the only real difference being that they do not have the platform sole and the heel is slightly shorter. My problem here though is that I just don't think I love them as much as I do the Allegras, even if the difference is minimal.What to do, what to doooo?! Help me girls...


  1. Agreed, it's a tough choice! I also, like a bit better the first ones. There is just something about them! I'd probably go with the topshop boots, even if they are a bit more expensive, but if it makes you happier, why not? :)
    It is always good to invest in good shoes, right? :)

  2. I think I like the first pair too, they are just so cute and funky! I'm loving your blog and I've given you a blog award :) xxx


  3. Argh, I bought these when they were 20%, still so expensive though, love them!! Did you do it in the end? xx
