Creepers...but not quite

Creeper...sort of...

I got these little plimsolls in Topshop the other day. Not sure if I want to keep them for numerous reasons, but it is mostly to do with the lack of funds (blah..whats new?!) and also because they look slightly like slippers on my feet...! I think they look like Creepers no? I love how Creepers look on people, and the shape of the actual shoe...I just cannot deal with the platform myself, so these are the perfect alternatives due to the flat soles. I am two minds. I had to borrow some dollars from my mother for these grey suede lace up heeled trainer boots from Topshop (wow, what a mouthful):

Which are a snip at only £40!!!!! I just really, really want a nice pair of lace up booties for winter time. I was supposed to get these "Samira" boots from Kurt Geiger, but who was I really kidding. Dropping £250 on a pair of boots is not a good idea:

So I rush into Topshop after work to try those lace up trainer heeled boots. Saw them, loved them. Put them on my feet. I just couldn't do it!! I could not walk around in them without feeling like Mariah Carey pre-Nick Cannon days. AKA heeled Timberland boots days. Shopping with a mission to buy a particular item is a bloody nightmare! I just want warm feet this Christmas. And, also for when I go to Le Parre (ahem, Paris) in December for a romantic break (with my two besties ;-D). Anyway, I bought those flat-Creeper looking things instead which are very un-Carey-esq don't you think? Now I am thinking of getting some suede Serena Dr Marten's:

However, I fear these suede chunky boots will also be reminiscent of Timberland's, just not the heeled Mariah type, but "Tims" nonetheless...

The lace up boots are cute. Have you seen the khaki ones with the wool inside? gorgeous! They've sold out on line but when I went to the O-street store they had them in stock. I'm planning on getting them tomorrow.
