Very Un-Wellies

For as long as we can remember we've always had a Wellington fobia. OK, technically it may not actually be diagnosed as a fobia, but let's at least call it a serious dislike. This God forsaken garment, ugly to the extreme, which in its right element really only serves the purpose of one thing, i.e. keeping the owner/wearer of the wellies dry. Up until a few years ago, there has been little or no selection of wellies, but since then the market seems to have gone stir crazy with all sorts of labels and models. Pucci have delivered at least one pair, Marc Jacobs have given it a go, and we've seen celebrities like Kate Moss picking up the cartoon-printed wellies such as the ones featured at ASOS. The most recent contribution to this business is the king of kitten heels, Sigerson Morrison. In his latest collection we get to choose between the most vibrant colours and full boot wellies, or even the ones pictured below; the flat "Orange Rain or Shine Skimmer-model". Somehow the concept of a pair of rubber flats just doesn't quite appeal to us, no matter how nice they are.

I love your blog, but just FYI, there is no man named "Sigerson Morrison;" the shoes are designed by a team of two ladies who called the label after their last names...

I have been a secret fan of Wellingtons and have longed to buy them but couldn't get myself to do it. However, everyday I'm getting closer to buying a pair. Many designers have come out with such variety that you can easily find something you like and is affordable. Thanks for the links!

Hey Anonymous, if the label is run by two coolchiqs that makes it even more intresting:) Thanx for pointing that out though

Moca - I think my 1st choice would be the cartoon printed wellies.
