Is there anything better?
Despite my longstanding love of shoes, I haven't come across any I 'had' to have so far this year...until recently - and I've bought two pairs in as many weeks, well, it would be rude not to treat my feet eh?
The first pair I picked up after the Clothes Show last week. After my disappointment of the offerings at Earls Court I took a trip to Oxford Circus to try on a pair of shoes I'd had my eyes on for a while.
They are the Nate sandals. Now these may not be to everyone's taste but to me they are the perfect summer shoe - comfortable, versatile and with just the right amount of 'edge'. Yes, they are not pretty, but that's what I like...and they help harden up the soft chiffon tunics and floaty dresses I've been living in recently. I also think they'd go perfectly with black tights in the autumn. What do you think? Too ugly, or just ugly enough? :)
The second pair of shoes may be familiar to a few of you as I tweeted my love of them this week. It was a definite case of lust at first sight and when I spotted them in Topshop this weekend I had to try them on - and when a good few other customers stopped, stared and told me to buy them, who am I to say no?
They are the Swallow wedges - super high, chunky and really comfortable...so far! Again, these will look fab with black opaques and little dresses to play up on the sixties style. A quick word of warning though, I am usually a 7 but when I tried them on they fell off my feet...so definitely worth trying a size smaller.
So...anyone else had the 'new shoe' urge recently?
