Have I ever told you that I wore spats every Saturday for three years?
Of course they were part of my full Highland Dress (yes, that again!) in boarding school, but I imagined that they were atop a sleek pair of elegantly heeled boots instead of the cadet-corps-issue boots that were impossible to shine.
But now, with these smart Prada simulated-spat boots, my dream has come true. Now if I could only find them in my size (8.5).
I don’t even think that these spats would need a spit-shine. Not that I ever did that with my cadet boots. Ick.
