Black & White Grunge Boots

Everyone is totally hyping over the grunge era, whether its the recession or just the changing faces of fashion the look is everywhere. What I love about these shoes, is the white sole they add a sporty feel to the boots; tapping into yet another SS13 trend. I have been circling these shoes for months so I am glad to finally have them on my feet.

The shoes were from Topshop and cost £65. I can't wait to take them and about in town...

Tan Suede Mocassin Ankleboots

You know when you decide to reinvent your look, or their is a fashion trend that takes off around you. Well back in the mid 00s when Sienna Miller was a fashion icon the Praire look took over the UK and most of the world. Flowing long white skirts and suede fringing where rife. After seeing the trend so much I decided to make myself a long skirt and the shoes below.

Another sale bargin from Topshop, these mocassins have been worn once or twice only. They are a little uncomfortable which seems to be a must with my shoe choices, and it does not match anything else that I own. I think these are ones for ebay...

Blue Patent Pumps

I have been a bridesmaid three times, apparently it is bad luck to be a bridesmaid four times so I am hoping this is my lot. I brought these heels from Marks and Spencers to wear with my bridesmaid dress for wedding number two which took place in 2011.
The shoes were a little bit tight, but I like the fact that they only had a small kitten heel and the booble embellishments on the front were quite cute and worked because my dress was quite plain.
I have great memories of the wedding as it was one of my best mates who got married, and these shoes allowed me to dance right through to the early hours of the morning. Having said that because it was January and had recently snowed I did have to don my hunter wellies to go to the church.
Not sure when i'll wear my shoes again, but I wouldn't dare throw them away, much like my bridesmaid dresses which are still dutifully in my wardrobe.

The brown lace up brogues

One of my few purchases from Primark, I brought these heels in 2006 ish when I was a poor student and could not afford to buy the Topshop version of these shoes. If I remember rightly they were a take on a pair of Vivienne Westwood or Alexander McQueen shoes back when no one else was doing the hidden platform look for shoes.

The shoes cost around £15, and even though they are not real leather the PU used looks pretty authentic. What I like about these brogues is the double tongue/laces, having said that I have never worn them and they continue to gather too much dust in my wardrobe. Too many shoes and not enough time.

Excuse my socks

It's all in the styling as far as I am concerned, and in this case I hold my hands up the umbrella socks with the sandals look is not great. Regardless, I love the idea of these sandals they are casually chic. I was drawn to them as a work shoe for the summer with there high but not ridiculously so heel.

Fast forward to me walking from the train to work in them and I realise I have been wrong. Not only do the sandals pinch the front of my wide feet, but the straps also dig into my ankles. Duh.

At least they weren't too expensive at around £50, from Topshop. I am sure I will grit my feet and wear them again, they will work for a couple of weddings that I will be going to in the next years.
