OK, I think I’m just going to have to re-name myself “Striperwoman” here. Is that OK with everyone?
Look, it’s not really my fault. Well, OK, it IS my fault. But am I slightly less to blame than I usually am for showing you lots of pairs of stripey shoes. You see, fashion seems to be going through one of those stages at the moment where it has aligned perfectly with my own personal tastes. The stores are just FULL of stripes, polka dots and the colour green. It is TORTURE for me, seriously. I mean, I know stripes and polka dots are always around in some form or another, and green has been quite prevalent too over the past couple of seasons, but at the moment I feel like I can’t visit a retail website without adding about 10 more items to my Wish List: or to my “To Be Blogged” list at the very least.
Which brings me to these River Island sandals. They have stripes. They have a bow. I wish they didn’t have a raffia platform, but they do, and I will live with it. They have a red twin, which…
The blue version, however: the blue version I would happily wear, even although there’s a good chance they’d made my ankles look like tree trunks. I think I’ll put that theory to the test next time I’m in River Island…
If you want to put it to the test RIGHT NOW, however, they’re £65, and you can click here to buy them.
And just in case you don’t believe me that fashion is deliberately trying to taunt me right now:
Oh, hai, green, midi length dress, which also has polka dots!
