It’s my last month living at home with the auld pair (I hope). So when I saw that Alexander Wang‘s Hanne boots were reduced on OakNYC, I found it difficult to resist. Well, obviously I didn’t find it difficult, because I fell, head first (feet first?) for the shoes, having seen them on Betty - not to mention my own sister - and concluding that I, too, could be fabulous and French, if only I were to find myself a pair of these shoes.
