The Shoe Girl Styles It: VW Melissa Rocking Horse Ballerina 2

Yesterday I blogged my high-street outfit for these shoes and I have another great (plus size) look for you today. Have you heard of Beautiful Gong Shim? I've been getting really into my K-dramas this year and just have one episode of this to go, but I feel like I was inadvertently inspired by Gong Shim for this look. She would totally wear something this style.

The Shoe Girl Styles It: VW Melissa Rocking Horse Ballerina 1

I'm back with another trio of outfits this week and my sets are looking good (even if I do say so myself). Actually this outfit, is probably one of my favourite's in a while and it came together so organically (hate that term, but that's how it happened).

Day 1086 - Shoesday Tuesday

Shoes: Blue Carni Val Irregular Choice

Hello, how are you all today? Another outfit from the "archives" this week. Well actually this one was just in August, so not too long ago. I had a trip guessed it, the doctor! This might've been to discuss the blood test results and decide what to do next.  No idea really, these appointments are beginning to blur. Anyway, I was feeling rather inspired this day and was like "I'm just going to go for it and wear something a little off-beat, because I can". You've seen this Collectif skirt before. It's a deeper turquoise than it photographs and the black spots are flocked. It's really high waisted (and came with detachable braces which I never wear), so essentially sits just under my bust and I was in a bit of a quandary as to what to do on top. Usually I'd tuck the top in (even though it makes me look booby), but as I was wearing this cardi, it didn't feel right. The cardigan is a little cropped, so it didn't cover the lower waist seam of the skirt, but I don't think that mattered. Then the shoes, oh the shoes.

Hello, here's my third outfit this week for these shoes. This is my high end look and I went for something quite dressy as my previous two (high street here and plus size here) were more on the casual side.

The Shoe Girl Styles It: Irregular Choice Dreamkiss 2

Hello, how are you all? I'm proper pooper-scoopered today. I'm not really sure why, maybe it's all the activity over the past couple of weeks catching up with me, I just desperately want to sleep, but am resisting. Sometimes that just makes it worse though, doesn't it? Anyway, today I have my plus size outfit for you. You can find my high street kitty-cat look here and tomorrow I'll show you my high-end outfit, which is looking fairytale fabulous right now.

The Shoe Girl Styles It: Irregular Choice Dreamkiss 1

Oh what a day! I've been tearing my hair out since the image hosting website I use, went down last night. If you've been on the blog since, you'll have been rather confused by the fact there was broken image links instead of photos. It's been a total nightmare and there was nothing I could do (other than send off a few stern emails). I'm truly P'd off by the "sorry for the inconvenience" replies. Err, my whole blog was down, that's a little bit more than an inconvenience. Anyway, it's back up (for now) and I'm running around like a dafty trying to finish all the blog posts I had set-up for today and yesterday and praying that overnight it remains there, so I can get more done tomorrow. I'm starting my trio of outfits with my high-street set.

Dy 1085 - Shoesday Tuesday

Now that I've shown you all my Alice shoes, it's time for an oldish OOTD post! I've just checked back my photo albums and these images were taken around 4 months ago. They might seem a little familiar, because I shared some photos on my Instagram and Facebook at the time. As you know, I don't get out much these days, but I believe I was going for blood tests at the hospital this day (exciting stuff). I'm noting my tactic of wearing something to distract me from the needle! I ended up bruised after this one actually, probably because the tourniquet was on for half a day. Honestly, it took forever as she tried (in vain!) to find a vein (not happening) and in the end just went in blind. I was probably asleep from boredom by this point. The more often they struggle with my veins, the more anxious I'm becoming about blood tests. I like to know they are going straight in, confidently and not dithering about, wiggling the needle or taking it out and trying again, just do it already!

Day 1084 - Shoesday Tuesday

Shoes: Irregular Choice Alice blue My Cup Of Tea 

It's been a bit of a hectic week, so Shoesday is a little later than usual. I really wanted to continue with my final pair of Alice (from the 2nd collection) though. You're probably aware that I initially bought these in the size up and the pink in my regular size. After trying both, I decided I wanted to keep the green, but in the smaller size, typical! I didn't really have the funds at the time, so I've been waiting to re-purchase them and in that time I did toy with the idea of not bothering at all. I've spoken about how much I loved the colours on these but wished they had the glitter elements from the pink pair, so that coupled with the fact I already owned two other styles with this heel, I thought perhaps I could live without them.  I'm so glad I changed my mind and did go for them again, they are so very special and whenever I opened the box, I knew I'd made the right decision and would have been upset if I'd left them.  Taking these photos and looking through them, just cemented this fact.  They are so pretty and even the bow situation is bothering me less and less.
