Accessories I Love – Boots

Accessories I love - Boots

I live in Dubai where it is high 30s (or more) with gross levels of humidity for most of the year, but I’m in love and maybe a little obsessed, with boots.

Although my collection is quite extensive, it’s never complete.  There are always new designs that I have to have – although generally I will settle on a favourite each winter.

Last winter it was my All Saints over the knee riding boots, but this year the competition is strong.

I discovered John Fluevog shoes in Vancouver this summer and fell in love.  I was completely torn between zebra skin ankle boots, patterned grey leather with a filigree pattern cut out and fantastic two tone boots with buttons which look like they stepped straight out of the turn of the century.

It was a dreadful dilemma with only one possible outcome – I bought all three.  After all John Fluevog is not in Dubai, and who knows if I will get to a store that stock him any time soon.  So it would have been a crime not to buy them.

Now I just need to design the perfect dress to go with them….

Judith Hobby Clothing

Judith Hobby started Judith Hobby Clothing in Dubai in 2011 in response to the lack of affordable fashion forward clothing in the market. Previously Judith had travelled overseas and bought back items that she thought would be of interest to her clients, however, interesting and affordable pieces became increasingly difficult to source. In response to this she tried her hand at designing a couple of simple pieces to see if anyone would be interested – the demand was overwhelming and she sold out in one day! Recognising the region she lives in and the requirements for a more conservative approach to dress, the pieces are designed for mixing, matching and layering year around.
