Day 1143 - Shoesday Tuesday

Irregular Choice Woodland Playtime ankle boots
Shoes: Woodland Playtime boots, Irregular Choice Disney Bambi 

I'm going to try and keep chatter to a minimum this week because I'm absolutely exhausted.  These boots arrived late yesterday (too late for photos), so I managed to shoot them earlier today to get them onto the blog.  I only bought two pairs of shoes from the collections that launched last Friday, these and a Dumbo pair.  There wasn't much in the way of high heels in these ranges and that's what I prefer.  No character heels either which is always a slight disappointment.  In saying that, the bags slayed (I got lots) and both boots were pricey, so I'm kinda thankful as that was all I could afford.

Day 1142 - Shoesday Tuesday

Irregular Choice yellow Gonzo Muppets shoes with glitter stars
Shoes: Irregular Choice Muppets, The Great Gonzo 

I'm way out of my comfort zone in these shoes today, because they are...gasp...mid heels!  You know I loved The Muppets collection and I already have the Gonzo bag and purse to match these shoes (though more on that later).  I recently completed my Muppets collection by managing to find all the high heels and I extended this to mid heels too, because I loved the styles regardless of the heels.  The uppers on these are quite unusual in my collection, so that's why I was drawn to them.  Yes, I'd love them more if they were higher heeled, but I just wanted a pair of Gonzo shoes and they didn't come any higher, so I bit the bullet and got them.

Day 1141 - Shoesday Tuesday

Shoes: Barbie Girl, Charlotte Olympia 

Most of you know I'm a big dolly fan, so I was super excited when Charlotte Olympia collaborated with Mattel on this Barbie collection. Given their hefty price-tag (£1145 for this pair!!), it's taken me a while to own any, but earlier this year I managed to find one pair in my size for a very reasonable price. I know some TK Maxx stores are stocking them now too (this wasn't where I got mine), my parents saw them in Manchester and I was a bit worried they'd see the original price and think I'd paid that for them! I also know they've been getting quite a lot of flack in TK Maxx as many think they are hideous. A friend of mine absolutely hates when I wear any of my Blythe or doll themed shoes, as they give her the creeps, so I do get it, but personally this is right up my street and I think they're beautiful.

Day 1140 - I Would've Noticed A Gold Wedding Band, Diane

Shoes: Black Eternal Friends, Irregular Choice

Hold up, how have I never worn these on the blog before? I checked back and I included them in the 12 Shoes Of Christmas post I did with Tomi back in 2015, but I can't find a separate Shoesday post for them at all. Usually I'd remember taking photos and never getting around to posting them, but I'm not even sure I've done that. Anyway, I did wear these the week before last and was trying to work out if it was their first wear. I think I may have answered that, judging by the lack of photos here. I really don't know how I've missed posting them on the blog before, but here they are with a full outfit.

Day 1139 - Shoesday Tuesday

Shoes: 'You're Invited' Dan Sullivan Irregular Choice 

Ok, lots to talk about regarding the fit of these shoes, so I'm just going to dive right in. Some of you might know that last week when my super limited, You're Invited arrived, they didn't fit and I mean spectacularly didn't fit. A week on, my second pair arrived (in the size up) and I was a bit hesitant to even try them to be honest as they still looked tiny. I measured the outer sole of the 39 against the 38's and they are exactly the same size, so there was no confidence boost there (though the soles on this style really taper in comparison to the upper shoe).

Day 1138 - Shoesday Tuesday

bent legs in jewel fishnet tights with black sating shoes with pink feathers and Miss Piggy heel
Shoes: Irregular Choice Muppets black All About Moi 

Unfortunately no carousel heels shoes to show you today, because they arrived last night and don't fit! Oh, it's been such a worry and stress, but I have the bigger size on their way-total luck finding them. I used to always size up in character heels, but for a good while now, I've been finding my usual size fine and look at the Angelica Pearson boots last month, a 37 (size down) would've fitted, they were so generous. Anyway, hopefully it all ends well. One thing that has ended well, is me completing my own mission of owning every single heel in the IC Muppets range. There's been some eBay bargains recently and I've added another 5 pairs (even went for mid-heels, gasp) including two colourways of styles I already owned. These are one such pair, All About Moi in black.
