Shoe Haul

No posts over the weekend, because I've been super busy working on this video of my latest shoe hauls. Hope you like it-comment on my youtube channel! I may post the images on Pink Haired Princess at some point, as the quality is a little lost in the vid...maybe shouldn't have worn those tights with hindsight. How's the weather with you? Pretty snowy here, so not much happening.

Day Three Hundred & Forty Two - Wilma's Rainbow

Senso Diffusion pink cheetah WilmaShoes: Pink cheetah Wilma ankle boots Senso Diffusion via Solestruck

My favourite art teacher used to say "if a job's worth doing once, it's worth doing properly", so with that in mind, I decided if I were to clash these shoes with some tights, I would have to properly clash them and that I did! The tartan also ties in with St Andrews Day which is coming up. It kinda works I reckon, what do you think? I had to go outside to take photos because the bright colours aren't working indoors with this lack of daylight! It was absolutely freezing for the 10 minutes I was out there! I finally found the best setting on my camera for this light just as I couldn't stand any longer, so only one decent pic! More pics to come soon on Pink Haired Princess though!

Wearing: No outfit post, pink tartan footless tights (gift)
Fit: You have to read my post on Pink Haired Princess. I bought a size up and struggle to get them on and off, but once on they feel true to size (and therefore slightly roomy).
Comfort: I didn't go anywhere in these, so can't really comment!

Day Three Hundred & Forty One - Dancing In The Moonlight

Shoes: Black and gold 'Moonlight' peep toes Miss L Fire

Yesterday, I had to pick my most 'sensible' shoes considering I was walking alone and it had been icy earlier. I was struggling, but this is what I came up with! Apologies for the bad photos, but it was so dark by the time I got home, this is all I could salvage. I pretty much wore an all black outfit with little splashes of colour here and there (most notably my scarf) and my nail polish. It's Eyeko Punk and is bright, neon pink, it looked so cool with peep toes, although it's completely washed out in this photo, soz : (

Wearing: Black and green print dress with long sleeved top underneath (dress hangs open at the back), black modified stirrup leggings, black coat all Primark, black hat (gift) with unicorn brooch Miss Selfridge, velvet bow ring also Miss S, unicorn cameo ring Topshop, kitsch pendant ASOS, Giles Deacon For Cadbury scarf, black faux fur bag with brooch Debenhams and black long, knitted, fingerless gloves (unknown), yep you've guessed it was freezing!
Fit: True to size, 3 3/4" heel.
Comfort: These have been known to rub at the heel before, so I was prepared with leggings that covered my heel. They didn't bother me yesterday and a very, very small heel for me!

Day Three Hundred & Forty - Kandice Love

Shoes: Black Kandice platforms Harajuku Lovers

On Wednesday I tried on these shoes, although I didn't go anywhere in them. You won't have seen them here before, because they are new-ish, bought a couple of months ago. I always say it's really difficult to buy US made shoes in the UK, when you don't know if the retailer has taken into account that a UK size 5 for example falls between a US 7 and 8. I find for this brand, I need an 8, so ordered a size up (UK6) and it turns out they sent a US9, so they are too large for me! The shop I bought from didn't have a smaller size anyway, so it couldn't be helped and they're just so cute I don't want to sell them (plus it's really hard to find HL shoes here)! As they're so heavy it's difficult to keep them on my feet when walking, so I'll need insoles and heel grips I think, anything to make them fit!

Wearing: No outfit post, tights are Miss Selfridge, brand new on and I stuck my thumb through the top and ripped them! Fabulous!
Fit: Obviously this style was bought too large, but I'd guess they run true to size. Staggering 6" cork heel and 1 3/4" platform.
Comfort: I can't comment considering I've never worn them anywhere yet! Your calves will ache with this heel height though.

Day Three Hundred & Thirty Nine - What About Now?

Shoes: Stone 'What's It All About' peep toe wedges Office

I'm baaaack! So sorry for the absence, can you believe it's been nearly a month? I decided today to venture out for a wee walk-brrrr, it's really winter now, freezing! I haven't been out of the house since a week past Thursday so I got a shock! I'm not really wanting to convert to entirely 'winter weather' shoes already though, because it's likely to last until March and I'll get bored wearing the same things!
Wearing: Bright patterned jersey dress H&M with black leggings and long sleeved top underneath, black cardi, black coat, lilac leather gloves, brrrrr!
Fit: True to size, 4" wedge heel.
Comfort: They are a little 'rigid' but they actually don't rub or feel uncomfortable.
