These small, shiny disks sewn onto a pair of heels or flats are the closest you will ever get to feeling like a cast member of the Nutcracker and a surefire way to make your legs stand out at a party.

The Chelsea Boot Fashion

The Chelsea boot is making ever greater strides in women's shoes. Most Spanish brands I follow included it into their Fall-Winter collections this year. The Chelsea boot owes its appearance on the contemporary fashion scene to the bohemian set of artists, musicians, and other creatives who tended to hang around West London's Chelsea district in the 50s and 60s. And you know artists and musicians - they can't help becoming fashion icons! So from that time on the Chelsea boot became a fashion item.
