I'm going to let you in on a secret. It's one that may surprise you - I'm a closet patent addict. The addiction surfaced as a child when I was deprived of patent schools shoes (#firstworldproblems). My mother simply wouldn't allow them - she called them tacky and that was that. Every summer I begged for my next pair to be of the shiny sort but it was never to be.
Much to the dismay of my inner child, as an adult, patent Mary Janes don't seem to have made the cut as a staple of my wardrobe in so, my addiction has stayed firmly under wraps - then, what does the Deichmann x Hanneli Mustaparta collaboration collection through at me? The most perfect pair of patent boots that I'm going to be transfixed with all season. Inner child rejoice!
Hanneli Mustaparta's collaboration with Deichmann offers up every thing from my perfect patent boot to blue suede ankle booties to a over the knee, black leather number. It's as easy on the bank balance as it is on the eye too. Don't just take my word for it though - head over to Deichmann and have a look yourself.
