It was payday this week in the Shoeper household, so naturally I rushed straight out and bought a new pair of shoes.
I actually hadn’t intended to buy shoes at all. Well, not that day, anyway. Nope, I’d really just gone out to buy a new bottle of shampoo. But there’s a Debenhams right around the corner from the Boots I was buying my shampoo in, and there’s a Miss Selfridge concession right at the front door of that Debenhams. And as soon as I laid eyes on these shoes, well, I knew they’d be coming home with me.
As some of you no doubt know, Miss Selfridge have released a few variations on this style recently, and I’ve loved them ever since the very first pair appeared, back in January. I wasn’t sure what they’d look like on a foot, however, so I resisted ordering a pair, and that was a move I’ve come to deeply regret, because now that I have them in black (which was the only colour available), I’m now having a really hard time not ordering the polka dot version. And I also really want them in red. And in grey.
Sadly for me (but happily for my bank account, and for Shoeperman’s sanity), the red and grey versions are sold out online in my size. I DO, however, have to drive right past another, much larger Miss Selfridge tomorrow, en route to the dentist. Well, it would be rude not to go in, just for a look, wouldn’t it?

They look adorable! Have been eyeing them for a while, but I really can’t justify another pair of black shoes to myself. So I’m buying booties instead! :p
Looking forward to see them in a shoe challenge!
Love the tights, where are they from?
No idea, I’ve had them for ages!
Simply fantastic!!!!!!!! I saw the other styles one of these days… but as I wasn’t going to buy (going to the UK soon, need to save!) I don’t remember where… if I happen to see again and in your number I tell you! But these ones are fantastic anyway!!!!!! Congratulations!
Mission accomplished – I’m sure you’ve already looked for, but it’s never too much to try to help… The Black Spotty Platform has number 4:
The grey and red versions unfortunately not in your number…
Yes, I looked on the site when I got back from my shopping trip and saw that they didn’t have the ones I wanted in my size – they may have them in store, though 🙂
I love them! I’ve pulled a muscle in my calf and it’s agony to wear anything but heels at the moment; do you think I could class these as medical supplies and get a VAT refund?
They look really good on! I was unconvinced about the size of the bow, but they are nice on. I like.
Oh gosh I’ve wanted them for so long.
Ooh, I like them but I like your tights even more!
They are fairly fabulous 🙂
They’re not my style, but I can’t wait to see how you style them!
I’m going crazy trying to find a pair of shoelettes that has a heel, but not a too high or skinny one (the university is paved with cobblestones..)
I am sooo in love with these!
Unfortunately, they are no longer on sale, and worse than that when I clicked on your old link, I found they were on sale for…7£! But “Out of stock”…
If anyone is selling these beautiful babies in size 4 (Europe 37) please tell me!!
And thanks Shoeperwoman for your blog, though it is not good for my obsession^^
