What: Miss Selfridge ‘Polly’ platform bow pumps
When: Sunday, February 20, 2011
Where: Afternoon tea at Loopy Lorna’s, Edinburgh
With: Black sweater (thrifted), stripe skirt (River Island via eBay), cameo brooch (Topshop), bag (Next, ancient), 50s style sunglasses (eBay)
On Sunday, Shoeperman and I had afternoon tea (complete with a bottle of bubbly, naturalement…) at Loopy Lorna’s in Edinburgh with a couple of our friends, so of course I grabbed the opportunity to save another pair of shoes: my black Miss Selfridge platforms, which are one of the most frequently worn shoes in my collection at the moment: I fear the day when I wear them out entirely!
These are the notorious ‘Polly’ platforms, which I also have in grey, and which have been the subject of many an eBay search, as I try in vain to find the red version in my size.
As with my first challenge this year, it was only when I looked back at the photos that I realised I’d inadvertently repeated myself again: last time I showed you these shoes, I was also wearing black and white stripes, although it was a completely different outfit. I promise I do wear them with other things too… just not when I’m doing Shoe Challenges, apparently!
And a quick video:
