If you follow me on Facebook, you may have already seen my latest shoe purchase, in the shape of these mint green peep toes, which I picked up in Primark at the weekend for all of £12. I’ve wanted a pair of mint coloured shoes for ages now, so when I saw the price, and that there was only one pair left in my size, there was really no question of whether or not they’d be coming home with me!
These are my usual size 4, and the sizing seems true to size, maybe even on the generous side, so although I haven’t had a chance to wear them yet, I don’t anticipate any problems. Being £12, they’re obviously not leather, but the quality is pretty good for the price so I’m sure they’ll “do me a turn”, as my mum would say. (They were also available in nude, if anyone’s interested.)
While I was in the shoe department, I figured it would be rude not to take a look at the rest of the wares: these photos were snapped really quickly with my phone, because I was in a rush, and the store was packed, but I was quite taken with these little nautical wedges:
These were actually nicer in real life – the angle they’re lying at here doesn’t really show off the wedge properly. They only had one pair, and they were a size 7, so I didn’t try them on, but I think they were also £12.
There was no shortage of sizes in some of the other wedges, though:
It’s wedge heaven!
These were all £16, and I wish I’d come across them this time last year, when I was searching everywhere for canvas wedges! This year I’m pretty much stocked up on this style of shoe, so the green peep toes were my only purchase. If any of my summer wedges should wear out within the next couple of months, though, at least I’ll know where to come to replace them!
