Pin It Now!


For a year now I’ve had my heart set on a pair of black Rag & Bone Newbury ankle boots. The mid and end of year sales brought with them heavily discounted Newbury’s in all the colours, patterns and textures of the past season, but I’m proud to say that I didn’t give in to temptation. Rather than impulse splurging on a floral, metallic or even brown pair for an altogether reasonable price, I ignored the sales and purchased a pair of Rag & Bone Newbury boots in distressed black leather. A 20% off promotion at Green With Envy during the Vogue Fashion Night Out, and free shipping made the decision easy. The Newbury might not be all that special to look at, but a beautiful basic doesn’t need any bells and whistles: it must be simple, classic, and practical. The Newbury’s charm is in the roomy high cut ankle that works wonders for my, let’s say, ‘bulky’ legs, and the stacked heel that gives satisfying height but keeps it casual for everyday. Though it’s coming into summer on this side of the equator, Canberra’s fickle weather dictates that winter pieces be close at hand at all times, and the Newbury is the perfect transeasonal boot.
