Well, pay day arrived, and by an amazing co-incidence, so did those navy platforms from New Look which I was drooling over last week! Oh come on, like you didn’t know I would buy these!
These actually felt like even more of a bargain than the £25 price tag would suggest, because I happened to have some money in my Paypal account, and, like Caroline, who’s also written about this, I always feel like a Paypal balance is somehow free money. I mean, it doesn’t really count, does it?
(Yeah, yeah, I’ll keep telling myself that…)
I had a bit of trouble with the sizing on these shoes, because I’d initially assumed they were the same style as the pink and black platforms I have from New Look, and which I’d had to size up in. I ordered them in a size 5, then, but when they arrived I realised that they’re not quite the same shape at all: these have a round toe rather than a pointed one, and the 5s were huge, so they had to go back and be replaced with my usual size 4.
That aside, I love them just as much in the flesh (or in the faux-suede, rather) as I did in the photo, and am planning on getting lots of use out of them.
Enough about me, though: which shoes are YOU wearing today?
Why do you always ask me that on a Saturday when I’m doing barefoot housework? When I go out I will be wearing turqouise suede ballet flats.
Those shoes are just prefect for you! Looking forward to seeing you style them.
I’m away for the weekend, and packing light, I only brought my black CHILLI ballerinas in leather, with a little bow on the front
These are lovely! The bow is very sweet.
Usually, when you ask that question I’m either wearing my slippers or my boyfriend’s slippers, so I don’t answer. But today, I am wearing some super little sandals I got in the Office sale! Ok, so I’m wearing them with my joggers and pj top, but still…I’ll do a blog post on them soon, watch out!
Leopard print ballet flats, because I will be flying. In my suitcase: leopard print high heeled sandals, nude high heels with a little bow and the unavoidable Birkenstocks (but pretty ones in glossy white).
Vacation, here I come!
Those shoes are to die for, but I’d break my neck if I tried walking in them.
I’m wearing kitten heeled green toe post sandals today as I just got a pedi – Orly Cherry Bomb is such a fabulous colour that I’ve already been onto Amazon & ordered some!
Inspired by your Shoe Challenge, I started my own last week – I discovered I have 170 pairs of shoe & boots & a niece who takes the same size & lusts after my collection (I think she was blown away by having an ancient aunt with such fabulous footwear). This means I’ve found a good home for the unworn/uncomfortable to go to; I promised her the Jimmy Choos in my will because the only way they’re leaving me is when they are pried off my cold dead feet.
Make sure your sweetie takes you out on the town this evening to show them off!
Er, I was at the football, so I wore flat black boots.
The shoes look absolutely lovely!!!!
Today it’s Nine West’s Getby wedges in gold.
Oo, I so nearly bought them today. They’re really nice!
Bought these (http://www.newlook.com/shop/womens/shoes/patent-bow-heels_199012501) ones instead though, hmm, pay day on wednesday…might just go back for the others!
I also just bought some shoes with my ‘free money’ (Paypal!) Some Melissa & Vivienne Westwood Black Lady Dragon wax orb seal slingbacks! 🙂 I know you’d approve Amber!
They were on sale for only £39! So even more justifiable! hehe While I wait for them to arrive however I am wearing some leopard print flats as I’m about to hit the New Look sale!
augh – I know I’ve said this, but New Look breaks my heart with all its adorable shoes. I’m actually wearing some of their shoes right now – black lacy ballet flats with satin bows on satin toes! 🙂
My clunky lace-up knee-length boots. It’s too damp outside for anything more delicate 😀
AH those are some platforms! I wonder how the view would be from way up if I ever were to wear those shoes. They look lovely on you, as all shoes do.
I just got home from uni, it’s 129483579 degrees outside and I’m super tired in my pjs, let’s not glance at my feet and see what shoes I’m wearing (A)
