Fashion Hates: Ankle Boots



I can't stand this trend. 
Ankle boots are everywhere! As if finding cute boots wasn't hard enough, 
what with most of them being super-high-heeled, super-pointy-toed, 
not fitted enough, too fitted, or varying other creative styles of horrific...

Now we have this monstrosity.

  2. I agree, they are totally gross!

    I found some cute boots a wal-mart a few years ago... but now then are too small, I guess that's what you get if you're a growing girl! :)

  3. Preach it sister! I already couldn't find cute boots at a reasonable price, but now literally all the ones I can find are ankle. Ankle boots look horride with skirts and dresses.=P

  5. Sorry ladies... I am unfortunately here to annoy you and tell you that not all of these are dis-tasteful, and in fact I have seen some very cute styles and combinations of ankle boots with some lovely outfits; while many do not present this particular item in the best fashion, there are some exceptions to the rule, and there are some very cute styles of ankle boots.
    This is all of course in my humblest of opinions (please, no one skewer me).

  6. Hehe I have to disagree also! ;D I love ankle boots and wear them with tights and pencil skirts. It looks really nice if you keep the color continued (like black). I don't really like any of the ones you have pictured though,, ugly IMO! :)

  7. Yes, Rebekah and Marie... I agree that there ARE exceptions... and not all of them are as hideous as these ones.

  8. They look like they would eventually send your chiropractic bill skyrocketing.

  9. I agree! I really don't like high heel ankle boots. It seems like all the stores have! But I do like some ankle boots that are flat...

  11. I LOVE ankle boots that don't have a big heel, or that look really weird or anything. I have a pair of "wrinkled" gray boots with ruffles on the side that are flat on the bottom and are amazingly amazingly comfy comfy comfy!!! Love 'em. I got 'em at Target. Amazing! <3
    Love,

  15. I don't like most of them, but I do like the black knitted one (if the heels weren't so high! ;) ) and the red crinkly-ish one. The other ones are disgusting.

  18. If enough people complain the states will all have to make a move concerning this predatory way of lending payday loan there are many reasons for this,
    one being that they're an ideal method to borrow money with a bank holiday.
