Irridescent Brogues

The sun has finally got his hat and has come out to play...this has put me in a very summery mood and looking forward to the next season! Again these are aspirational footwear, I don't own these... yet!!! What is great about the brogues from Miista is the unusual mirror leather material and the white outer sole. They are a bit reminiscent of the Simone Rocha collection just without large price tags; well they are still £140 but worth every penny!
I would wear these with some white socks and a midi skirt, or a beautiful tea dress!

Wishful Thinking

I don't currently have access to my vast shoe collection so I am going to tell you about a pair of shoes that I have been dreaming about! I'm totes in love with these shoe-boots from the Acne AW12 collection. They are currently in the sale for two hundred and something pounds but this is still out of my price range!!!

These black suede and shearling shboots are contemporary and a little bit edge, if I were to be so lucky and actually afford to buy these I would don them with a plain dress and let the shoes do the talking!!!

Grey Wedge Sandal Shoes

Sale buy alert! I wanted the flat versions of these shoes but when I saw these ones in the sale at Topshop for around £30; I brought them instead in one size too big. So really this is a classic story of buying something because it is cheap and never wearing it more than twice.

I managed to get over the size issue, because of the buckle but these shoes can not be categorised. they are never very smart, or casual or smart casual so there has never really been an opportunity to wear them...

Black Glittery Mary Janes

These were a bargain buy from Office in 2008ish, I was going out for New year's eve and desperately needed a pair of heels to wear with my dress! I don't often rock a glittery shoe, but if there is an opportunity to wear glittery footwear New Years is the time. The shoes were £20 in the sale, not bad!

I really can't remember how the night went, but the shoes were quite difficult to walk in and were bouncy. I am sure I ended the night bare foot. I have only worn them once, but will save them for another New Year's eve in the future i'm sure.

Patent Turquoise Pumps

The first week back of the year was quite painful, too many things to do and not enough brain power. Getting up at the regular time again really sucked the big one. It also messed with my daily shoe posts but I am back on track.

These patent beauties were not actually brought for me to wear, I brought them for a photoshoot that I was doing at Uni in my final year (2007). It was candy/ sweet inspired and these shoes were bang on trend. They cost about £6.00 and I brought them from my local Primark...I am not sure why I still hang on to them, I don't think I'll ever wear them but there are fond memories of my shoot although I didn't end up using the shoes in any of the photos.

Black Pointed Shoes

Shoes out of necessity; I brought them when I started working at Marks and Spencers just before I went to university in 2004. Purchased from the Shoe Zone in Guildford the black pointed Mary Janes where supposed to be a comfortable part of my uniform. Unfortunately after 4 hours on the shopfloor  I wanted to throw them away and walk barefoot.

The shoes were £20 and like some of my other bad choices have only been worn once. I think that the shoes are in fashion now, very Marc Jacobs-esque.

Rainbow Wedge Sandals

I started writing this post yesterday but I got distracted, and now its another year! Post celebration and hang over at a minimum I am unhappy to report that I left a pair of shoes on the train home, D'oh!!! We had some good times me and my teal ankle boots, RIP! Or I hope some funky hipster took them home! Check out my old post on the boots.

Anyway back to today's footwear. I love these sandals, but I have only worn them once;  my feet were in agony the whole time. The wedge was also very hard making them difficult to walk in. The sandals are slightly different colours because one of them was in the window and caught the sun in the shop which meant I got a further reduction. I coloured in the rainbow colours with felt tip to try and make them look the same.

These are soo cute and I always think they would be great to wear on a sunny day with a pretty dress. They may actually make me look elegant for once, rather than the jumble sale chic that I normally achieve. They were brought from Jones the Bootmaker for around £39.99.
