Once in a while when browsing the web you come across that one shoe that makes you stop and cringe. Unfortunately, this Dolce & Gabbana Tapestry and Leather Ankle Boot had me wincing. Yes, literally wincing. I’m all for letting accessories take over the spotlight in an outfit, but this is just, well, awful. The needlepoint detail gives off a grandma-ish quality that I don’t believe works well with anything, even a classic black dress.
The tapestry detailing is your typical floral print that incorporates various pink, blue, green and yellow hues. (It’ss probably very similar to what your grandmother’s work if she’s into needlepoint). This design is set throughout the entire boot, including the heel, with added gold accents in the center of the boot. I understand Dolce is trying to evoke a vintage and European-inspired kind of style with its fall collection, but I don’t think a tapestry shoe is the way to go about producing this look. So what does a shoe like retail for? Try $1,575. You can try this look yourself at Net-A-Porter.
