I hate to be that blogger who’s starting to get all excited about autumn when summer’s barley even started (and trust me when I tell you I’m not even REMOTELY excited about the prospect of autumn. Not even a little bit.), but I scrolled through what felt like hundreds of retails sites this week, in my bid to bring you some amazing new Shoeper Shoesday picks, and only one pair of shoes really appealed to me. And they were boots. These boots, to be exact:
It’s always the way of it, isn’t it? I mean, I know that by December I’ll be constantly finding sandals and sundresses I want to wear, but right now it’s July, and even although it’s been raining constantly, it’s not nearly cold enough for ankle boots – so it stands to reason that I’d find the perfect pair of them, doesn’t it? Of course, all of this is academic, because these boots are by Isabel Marant, which means they’re not even close to being in my budget. If they were, though, I’d be snapping them up, even although I know I’d have to wait a while yet to wear them: it’s not often I find a pair of boots I like every bit as much as the shoes I normally feature here, so when I do find a pair I love, they’re definitely worth mentioning!
Oh, and I wasn’t being completely truthful when I said there was only one pair of shoes that really appealed to me: look at these!
These gorgeous glitter pumps are by Gianvoto Rossi, and although I’m no more likely to get to wear these than I am the boots, if I could just have them to sit on my desk and admire, I’m pretty sure that would REALLY help motivate me every day. No? That’s not a good enough excuse? Damn.
