The Shoe Girl Styles It: Gucci Python Platform

Gucci python platform shoes
I'm back with the luxe edition of The Shoe Girl Styles It and a bit of an explanation for the lack of posts the past couple of weeks. I've really been having a hard time blogging lately. I wrote a big long post about it the other day, then didn't publish it. I actually felt better just for writing it and didn't really want to 'dump' the moaning on you (though I suppose I have to, to explain)! I thought I could just power through the 'block' and inspiration would hit, but instead I've spent hours and hours each day trying and failing to blog. It's so frustrating because the material is there most of the time, I just can't bring myself to publish it, because it's not quite perfect. Then when I do blog and receive a lacklustre response, I question if it was worth the hours and days I put into it. I wonder if you've sensed this and that's the reason behind it or perhaps you're just bored of the limited way I can blog just now.
Like I say, you question whether it's worth the work and time you put in and you do feel 'lonely' talking to yourself or just reaching one or two people. I did say (in the post I never published) that I have little else to do with my life (that I'm capable of right now), so I can't imagine how I'd fill my day without blogging. Perhaps I've just Polyvore'd myself out. Maybe I'll snap out of it and feel better. I don't know if I need to be more or less strict with blogging (to be truthful I've tried it both ways recently).  Or maybe I just have to admit defeat, that being a successful fashion/beauty blogger isn't something I can do when I'm this ill. I don't know. I felt like trying a Polyvore set tonight and so gave myself free reign (didn't look at the prices (sorry) or stress) and I actually enjoyed it, so I'll just have to see how it goes next week. I don't want to give up blogging, but it's a possibility, even after all my hard work to turn it around last year. Ok, so this outfit. I wanted a 70's disco type theme, because of these wonderful Gucci python platforms £820. That classic Gucci shape just called out for it! So I paired them with this Pinko, one shouldered sequin number. The draping and asymmetric shape (along with the glimmer) works so well with the sandals. I knew I wanted big earrings and cuffs to continue the theme and this little Vivienne Westwood clutch just finished the look perfectly.  I feel it's like these items were made for each other, they all blend so well together.  What do you think, like this outfit?The Shoe Girl Styles It: Gucci Python Platform

  1. You know, I really don't like the 70s, but this is very elegant and I love it in spite of myself.

    1. Haha, snap! Not usually a 70's fan and I hear it's a big trend right now : (

  2. I wasn't sure if my last post worked so apologies if I am repeating myself. I love reading your blogs so please don't stop blogging. I like this outfit, though it wouldn't suit my shape. Still gorgeous though.

    1. Aww thank you, being appreciated makes it worthwhile : )


Thank you for your shoeaholic love!!
