Kurt Geiger ‘Gala’ black high heel d’orsay pumps, £85

I almost didn’t feature these shoes. Two part pumps with a high heel and ankle strap used to be my go-to work shoe, back in the days when I worked in an office, and that feels like a very long time ago now (probably because it WAS quite a long time ago…), so I can’t help but see this style as a little dated, even although it’s been making a bit of a comeback in recent months. Maybe my eye just needs to adjust to it again, who knows.

As I said, I wasn’t going to feature them for that reason, but then I looked at the photo of the toe, with its perfectly shaped bow, and all of a sudden I discovered I WAS willing to consider these, after all. Yes, I could live without the ankle strap: so many shoes seem to have one right now, and I know they help make them feel more secure on the foot, but when you have short legs, ankle straps can be pretty unflattering, and when you tend to wear a lot of midi length skirts, as I do, that “stumpifying” effect is even more exaggerated.

Still, these are growing on me the longer I look at them, so maybe I do just need a bit of time to readjust to the style, after all.

One thing I DON’T need time to adjust to, however, is this green handbag, also by Kurt Geiger:

I never used to be much of a “bag lady”, if you’ll excuse the expression: it’s always been shoes all the way for me. Lately, though, I’ve been getting more and more into the world of handbags, and le me tell you, it’s a pretty expensive world to get into. This bag, for instance, is £230, but looking at it here, I just bet it’s worth every penny…
