Day 1026 - Shoesday Tuesday
Shoes: Pink 'Dolly Mixture' Irregular Choice
Ah ok, so this was supposed to be Shoesday Tuesday last week, but well, that never happened. I've been so busy today that I almost ran out of time, again! I'm sure you'll agree, it was worth waiting for though.
These could possibly be my favourite Irregular Choice shoes this season. Unusual to have an ankle boot in a Spring/Summer collection, but there's no way I'd wait for colder days to wear these...oh wait, that would be our supposed 'Spring'! Now the name confuses me, Dolly Mixture. Those that have been long-time IC fans or readers of my blog, will know I already own a pair of 'Dolly Mixture' shoes by IC. I don't know if it was an oversight (goodness knows how many thousands of names they've come up with over the years) or if they thought it was just too adorable not to use again. Hopefully these being a 'boot' will avoid confusion with my other pair. Now size wise, I did try the 5 (my regular size) and they were alright, but there wasn't much wiggle room. My toes occasionally scrunched up a little when slipping them on, so I decided to try the size up. There's very little difference between the two to be honest, so I'm glad I opted for the comfier pair. There's too many beautiful details on these to pick out, but I especially adore the heart shaped eyelets and well florals, hearts and glitter always get the thumbs up from me, so combined in one shoe is heaven! What do you think of these ankle boots?
Fit: 4" heel, lace up front. Wider feet may find these a half size too small, so would probably benefit from sizing up.
Comfort: The 'demi' wedge heel seems easy to walk in, the tops may rub at the ankles at first.
