Get 10% off sheepskin boots at Koalabi

 

Move over Uggs. Hello Koalabi. Keeping your feet warm and fashionable just got easier as luxury Aussie label Koalabi has launched in the UK at debenhams.com and koalabi.co.uk.

It offers classic sheepskin boots (in tall, short and ultra short styles), laced, buttoned and fringed designs, plus heeled leather boots with sheepskin trim. There's also slippers and kids and baby footwear.

When I saw Koalabi's Baby Ugoo booties, I knew Bargainista Baby had to have a pair. They're a treat at £39.95, but as his very first pair of shoes I couldn't resist. And they are so cute, coming in a choice of raspberry, navy and chestnut. I like the velcro fastening, which makes it easy to get them on and off little feet.

Can you get shoe envy from a pair of dinky booties? I wanted some! Luckily Koalabi does an adult version in the form of its classic ultra short boots for £89.95. Available in red, chocolate, chestnut and black, I opted for the latter so that I wasn't too matchy matchy.

The ultra short style is great with my skinny jeans and perfect for this clement weather. In my tall Uggs, my legs would be overheating right now, but Koalabi's ultra short boots keeps my toes toasty while leaving my legs cool.

I love the paw print on the sole of the boots and Koalabi's aqua repel, which provides protection from splashes and spills, means I don't need to get the Scotchguard out. Result.

Fancy a pair? Koalabi is offering Bargainista Fashionista readers a 10% discount, so go shop! Your feet will thank you come winter time. Visit koalabi.co.uk and apply the code SUSIE10 at checkout. It's valid until 30 November 2013. Let me know what you get!

The best maternity dress

  PHOTOGRAPHS BY VICTORIA ADAMSON

I've been meaning to post these pictures for ages. They're from the What ELLE Wears blog at ELLEuk.com back in April when Bargainista Baby was about 33 weeks.

I'm very proud to announce Bargainista Baby has now arrived and is a gorgeous Bargainista Boy who is already three months old!

As for this maternity outfit, it's a non-maternity piece from Next. Remember this dress that I got last summer? I loved it so much I got it in both jade and black. And I'm so glad I did.

This dress flattered and accommodated my bump (thanks to the soft jersey fabric) and made me look and feel good, too. That's £32 well spent in my book.

Easy to wear and comfortable, it was perfect for the summer heatwave and saw me right through to the end of my pregnancy. I'm hoping to reclaim it next year as a non-maternity dress again!
