working girl

I needed some new work shoes, so spotting these bargains from Deichmann was perfect timing.  Classic black, chunky heels and a little bit of platform to give me that much needed height.  They are surprising comfortable but not suitable to run in, which I attempted when late for an appointment.  I certainly wouldn't be winning any gold medals in the Office Olympics but the Ministry of Funny Walks would definitely give me a job!

Getting sensible . . . maybe not

Are these boots made for walking?

I bought these boots months ago so I could be ready for the colder seasons. They are from Very, purchased when they offered discounts off their new range.

Ideally I was searching for a pair of sensible, practical pair of  black ankle boots that would last me through autumn and winter . . . what I bought instead was some seriously high nude shoe boots with a knitted cuff and buckles.   Practicality be damned, these boots called out to me during an extensive online search and my attention was continually drawn back to them, I just hope it doesn't snow when I finally wear them.

Shoe of the week

This week's shoe is from Matalan.  At £12, these bright neon shoes ensure you can still get your fashion fix on a budget.

Shoe of the week

Its time to start planning your Christmas party outfits. So, for the next few weeks I'll be researching the glitziest, and brightest shoes that you could be wearing this Christmas. 

These Malice wedges from Lollipop could be the right shoes to start a disco inferno at your Christmas Do.

Shoe of the week

I love a bit of eccentricity, us brits are renowned for it, putting together the quirky with the classic. These Ruby Rocks shoes [I love that name!] shoes have English eccentric written all over them.

Is it really nearly Christmas?

It wouldn't time for the Christmas countdown without the quintessential John Lewis Christmas advert.  Simple, understated and beautiful. I'm already dreaming of a White Christmas.

Holiday packing dilemma

I am off to Benidorm in a couple of weeks, perfect for enjoying a bit of winter sun before December arrives and the Christmas shopping panic begins. 

Now I've been told that I should be practical when it comes to the 'Dorm'. That means pack the flats not any fabulous heels.  I'm not sure if I can handle five nights away with no stilettos in my grasp, I just don't do 'flat'. So its either find a pair of heavy-duty, hard-wearing heels that can survive the trip or buy a cheap pair that will just about last the holiday but won't break my heart or my bank. Decisions, decisions . . .  

I need to start packing!

Shoe of the week

It's freezing in Blackpool today, I'm sat in my pyjamas, with the central heating on, researching shoes. So I should be looking for something practical, warm and water resistant for this week's shoe, right?

Well I'm feeling like one of those birds who's planning to migrate somewhere sunny.  Rather than finding fellow birds and practising an arrow formation to fly due South (or should that be west?).  My migration plan would be to pack, book and fly off in a metal 'bird' somewhere exotic.  And these Jimmy Choos would be migrating with me!
