Big shoes!

By big shoes I mean chunky, platforms, flatforms, wedges and so on, not shoes that are too big for you! I love shoes – shoes and bags being my main indulgences. You can change an outfit in an instant with different shoes or a different bag. I’m no wall flower when it comes to shoes. I like big, brash, loud, outlandish shoes as much as I love a fabulous simple flat or elegant pump.

Yesterday I wore my Isabel Marant wedges. When I was back in London I was really surprised how many people were wearing them – I saw several on the street and Selfridges still sell them. I was fortunate enough to grab these on TheOutnet.com last year.

Today I am in my Zara flatforms. They aren’t leather but they are really comfortable and a fabulous Prada tribute!

I’ve found similar flatforms for you here at Mango

I love this espadrille flatform for the summer!

I adore Kurt Geiger shoes and they ship to the US. This pair is divine and Alex at The-Frugality.com owns them, there aren’t many sizes left though.

I am obsessing over these – the perfect white flatform for summer. Great with shorts or boyfriend jeans.

The Logan in khaki is in my bag – just debating the navy too – really don’t need more navy flatforms but the fabric is beautiful

I have this pair – called the Lizard – in black and snakeskin, last worn here. They are incredibly comfortable!

I also have this pair for summer that are in the sale, but be quick there’s only a couple of sizes left.

Flatforms are now so popular in fact, Kurt Geiger has a whole section on their site dedicated to them!

These have to be the most perfect, contemporary, beetle creepers that I have seen in a long time. Obsessed with them!

So lots to consider – now you just have to be willing to draw a little attention to your feet – and I warn you, not everyone loves them like me! 😉

 

 

Unexpected movie days

I’m watching the end of The Devil Wears Prada snuggled up on the sofa with a poorly girl. She’s on the mend but while I have her home its lovely indulging in some chick flicks with her.

Needless to say I have spent most of the time in sweats but decided that the doctor may prefer it if I turned up dressed. I took advantage of the warm weather to get the ankles out with my new Zara shoes. They are fabulous Prada tributes! I hope this isn’t the end of winter though as I am still in boot and coat mode!

Those M&S girlfriend jeans

Wasn’t it just yesterday I was saying I rarely go to the Marks and Spencer site? I must be telling fibs because my order from a few days ago arrived! My jeans that I ordered with 20% off, plus 2 pairs of knickers to qualify for free shipping! It’s all a con – the shipping was probably less than the knickers but I still couldn’t bring myself to pay for shipping!

The jeans are amazing! As everyone has mentioned they fit big! I originally ordered a UK 12 and then in a fit of panic, after reading some reviews, I cancelled the order and reordered a UK 10. I thought I must be mad! Me in a 10? Well I may have lost a few lbs already without the wine, as they fit PERFECTLY! The denim is lovely and stretchy and super soft. I LOVE them.

The styling online is horrendous.

So here is my interpretation:

The jeans are currently £7 off – reduced to £28 with all sizes in stock. Size down a size!
