Smitty, once again reading HuffPo so I don’t have to, pointed me in the general direction of yet another fashion dust-up, which I present here on the honorable basis that I need material.
In this particular instance, Swedish Crown Princess Victoria is presumably committing some fashion faux pas, not so much for wearing white after Labor Day take a look at the link to see what I mean but for finishing off the ensemble with the shortish bootlet you see at right. “Shoulda worn pumps,” complains the majority of the respondents to HuffPo’s inevitable poll.
I’m not so sure this shoe is all that terrible, though the name they gave it “shooties,” a portmanteau of “shoe” and “booties” is horrid in the extreme. At least it’s not open at the toe, which to me contradicts the very nature of a boot.
