Lust-have #2: Lita Boots

This week my lust-have is a shoe I have been obsessing over for a while, but haven't been able to justify the price: the Jeffrey Campbell Lita Boot.

Lita Boots

They are overstated shoes with a platform and heel which would make me well over six feet tall, they come in a wide variety of ridiculous colours and I'm not sure I'd ever be able to walk in them, but barely a day goes by when I don't think about these shoes. They have wooed me with their uber coolness and I have wasted hours looking at the pretty girls on who intimidate me just a little bit wearing them and looking incredible, which makes me think I'd be the number one cool girl in Leeds if I could just get my hands on a pair. I thought this was all a pipe dream, but according to this website they are available in black and in my size, and boy am I tempted.

I hope that by the end of the year I will own my very own pair of Lita Boots and I will be swanning around the streets of Leeds towering above everyone in my stupidly high platforms. Until that day comes I present you with a few of my favourite Lita looks courtesy of

Ah, look at this, the boots are the main focus and the rest of the outfit is simple but so full of style. I think this look would be really good for work (maybe with some thicker tights though!)

I have a dress that looks a bit like this dress, I therefore need these shoes to go with it... does anyone else use this type of logic when wanting to buy clothes? Please say yes.

I think I saved the best 'til last. This is simply stunning.

What do you think of the Lita boot? Maybe you own a pair - I'd love to see your styling of them!

Nooo, Laura! I HATE these shoes! Imagine them on our size 8 feet!

I love that not a day goes by when you don't think about them, though. I'm the same with the Mulberry Alexa. Sigh...

It's so true! I would look a clown, but I just want them sooo much. Luckily for you as a homeowner I don't think I will EVER be able to justify the price of these, especially when I never even wear heels.

Oh, don't even get me started on the Alexa. It will remain a distant dream I feel.

Not a huge fan of these shoes! They look hard to walk in and so clunky looking. I loooove that red, white and black dress! Where is yours from?

I think because the heel is 5' but the platform is 2' people say they're not too hard to walk in, but I think my ankles might not be strong enough! I do too, mine is kind of similar but different colours from H&M, I posted it here - x

The blue ones are perfection. x hivenn

I love the glitter ones, and I'm not really into sparkly things.
They're not very practical, but the best things usually aren't!

Jeffrey Campbell's Litas have become such an icon, I can't wait for you to get your own pair. :)

Thank you all for your lovely comments. I hope I get my pair one day! I absolutely adore the sparkly ones and with infinite fund I would definitely want to own every colour!!x

These boots are everywhere I turn at the minute, I just can't escape them!! And that is a huge problem because I love them and am dying for a pair :)

Laura said...

It's so difficult to forget about them when you see them all over, isn't it?! I hope you get your pair :) x

Me too! I think these shoes are fab, but not so much a fan of the pricetag. I would wear these every day if I owned them.

I love JC shoes so much, especially the brown
they are so high, i would tower over everyone if I had a pair of my own!
