As I’ve mentioned a couple of times recently, this year I’ve been on a bit of a mission to increase my collection of flats. Because I don’t wear them all that often, though (And tend to be pretty hard on them when I do), I’m generally too mean to want to spend much cash on flats, so when I found these ones in Asda last week, for just £7 per pair, I knew at least one pair would be coming home with me.
As it turned out, two pairs ended up coming home with me – one green, one black – but it could’ve been so much worse than that, because they had these in a bunch of other colours, too, including red and blue patent versions, both of which were rather nice. They had the black version with a patent upper too, but I decided to go with the matte finish, because they were a little more stretchy, and therefore more comfortable.
Last week also saw the arrival of these little gold flats into my shoe closet:
These were a gift from my parents, and are in a great, go-with-anything goldy-bronze colour, which should prove really versatile.
Now, I’m in two minds whether or not to include these shoes in my Shoe Challenge total. Because I only ever really wear flats for convenience (i.e. I’ll wear them around the house, or if I have to run out on a quick errand, or do a lot of walking for some reason, but I don’t ever create outfits around them), and tend to wear them out quite quickly, I never really see them as permanent members of my shoe collection. I did include a couple of pairs this year, though, so maybe I’ll include these ones too: the jury’s still out!
