It’s been said that you shouldn’t adopt a fashion trend if you’re old enough to have worn it the first time it was a thing. I’ve long poo-pooed this outdated notion. And it’s a good job I have too. Why should all the sweet young things have all the fun? Fashion is fun and it

FEATURED ankle boots AW15
