New shoes! Vivienne Westwood/Melissa Lady Dragon shoes in black

I know, I know: the very LAST thing I needed was another pair of jelly shoes. Or peep toes. Or black shoes in general, really.


I had a discount code to use with our site sponsors, Spartoo, and it had been burning a hole in my computer. I hadn’t really seen anything I desperately wanted: I mean, I’d seen plenty of stuff I liked, but my panic about not managing to save all of my shoes by the end of the challenge – and specifically, all of the summer shoes by the end of the summer – had forced me to at least try to be a little more restrained with my purchases.

Then, last week I happened to take a look at the site, and I noticed that these Melissa shoesย were on sale, and only available in my size. Well, it would’ve been silly not to, really, wouldn’t it?

I actually hadn’t considered buying the Lady Dragons in black before, but I have to say, I absolutely love them. The main reason I managed to justify these was that I think I’ll be able to get a lot of use out of them in Autumn/Winter as well as in the warmer months: I don’t often wear peep toes with tights, but the peep toe on the Lady Dragons is small and the bottom of the heart actually mostly hides it when you’re wearing them, so I think it could work. And, of course, I’ve seen Fi wear her Lady Dragons with tights before and it always looks fantastic, so I figured I’d give it a go.

Once again, I went down a size with these to get the perfect fit. For some reason, they actually feel even more comfortable to me than the other two pairs I own, but I guess the true test will come when I try to wear them all day!

P.S. Should you want to see some more of these, I’ll have some extra pictures on my Facebook page soon!
