No doubt, among our readers we have quite a few costume enthusiasts. Well, those readers may want to settle in on their fainting couches because the "Lady Victoria" boot from Poetic Licence is seriously costumey.Some people are very against the idea of looking too period lest you be costumey, but we think it's just fine. And accessories like shoes and jewelry are a fun way to tinge an outfit with your personality when the occasion is otherwise more sartorially conservative. However, I think the black and cream versions of these boots are fugly as all get out. (Getting out is quite fugly.) I just can't see them going with anything. The brown, maybe. Even so, the height of the boot is awkward and I can't help but think about how dirty they'd get after of few days in sidewalk-free Indiana.
Do you like them? If so, what would you wear them with?
