Day 1161 - Shoesday Tuesday

Shoes:  Irregular Choice A Tale Of Enchantment (Beauty And The Beast)

Onto Belle this week from Beauty & The Beast, which launched alongside The Little Mermaid collection this month as the last of the Disney Princesses at Irregular Choice. I ended up not going for a Belle character heel, which is unusual as characters are usually my thing. I fell for these boots though, honestly the moment I saw them and so I decided to get those and the matching bag and because Ariel is my favourite, her things were basically my priority. I think I said last week, I wasn't going to get Make A Splash because the heels were the same as the boots and I favoured those. Had I done that, I might've gotten a Belle heel, but my budget only stretched so far and I'm so glad I did opt for those shell shoes because they are lovely.

Day 1160 - Shoesday Tuesday

Shoes: Irregular Choice Make A Splash (The Little Mermaid) 

So my Disney order arrived on Saturday and it's given me a chance to try everything on and I'm hoping to run through fit reviews of all 3 pairs I bought, as soon as possible, rather than leaving it to one a week.  First up are one of my Little Mermaid pairs, Make A Splash.  I actually nearly didn't buy these.  The boots were top of my list initially and as these have the same heel, I thought I should go for other (different) pieces first.  I'm so glad I changed my mind, almost everything sold out of all sizes on the day and they are really lovely.  The uppers are an iridescent sequins, so they change colour a bit depending on their surroundings.  Sometimes they are almost white or pink or lilac.  The pinky bit is a very pale pink, then you have that glitter platform which is covered in multiple sized bits of various colours.  It's shedding everywhere, it looks like there's been a party in the shoe room, the floor is covered!

Day 1159 - Shoesday Tuesday

Irregular Choice christmas glitter court shoes
Shoes: Irregular Choice Santa's Helper

Following on from The Kringles boots last week, these are my other new season Christmas shoes.  I thought these were really cute, but the lower heel did put me off.  I put them in and took them back out of my basket several times, before committing to buying them on launch day.  They arrived the next day and my opinion was pretty much the same, they are cute, but the low heel is off-putting.  It just needs to be slightly higher for me, but I do really like the rest of the shoe.

Day 1158 - Shoesday Tuesday

What's this? Surely not a new blog post...yes, it is!  I think the last time I blogged here was in summer when I was going through all the Family Reunion collection from May.  It's been a bit of a tough year to manage blogging and everyday stuff, so unfortunately it's fallen by the wayside.  My poor wee blog has forgotten who I am!  I have been keeping up with the #365daysofIrregularChoice challenge on Instagram (well, not quite keeping up, but getting there), so if you're in need of a daily dose of shoe wearing, that's where to hit me up.  300+ items to ogle so far!  I'm realising that we're nearing the end of the year, so I can now grab all the good stuff that I was saving in the hope of getting to wear them for real, but instead I'll probably only be wearing my festive pairs outside now.  Which brings me to this post and I added another couple of pairs to my IC Christmas stash this year.  These are the pair I was most taken with, they are just so, so gorgeous, even better in the flesh than I was expecting.  Last year we were treated to the Ginger's House ankle boot and I really enjoyed having something slightly more casual to choose from.  I have 4 pairs of Santa heels, along with the snow globes from last year, so the boots in comparison were really 'wearable'.  This pair are a bit more, well a lot more glitzy, the gold sequins is dazzling.  Blindingly bright.  They flip to a less shiny silver on the other side if you so wish.  The red glitter parts actually have sporadic tiny gold stars in.  These stars are super pretty, but shed very easily.  I keep catching something glistening on the carpet and find it's another fallen star!

Day 1157 - Shoesday Tuesday

Hello gang!  Here's the next of my Family Reunion character heels.  The polar bear was a brand new character for this collection, although the heel itself is just the original panda (later a gold bear) in a different finish.  It's brilliant, it really is.  I love the whole concept of the shoe, I think it's so, so clever.  However, this post is more about the fit, so let's get onto that.

Day 1156 - Shoesday Tuesday

Apologies for the photos, the lighting was clearly not good this day (last week) and I didn't intend to use these for a Shoesday post, but I haven't been feeling great, so couldn't retake them. Plus today was lovely, until it was time for me to take photos and got very overcast, typical! They'll do, you can still see the details. So, another pair from the Family Reunion collection and I'll be honest, probably my least favourite of my haul, but that doesn't mean I don't like them! Far from it. Even the ones I didn't buy, I like. This collection was so strong, but compared to last week, Fantastic Fawn would win.

Day 1155 - Shoesday Tuesday

Shoes: Irregular Choice Fantastic Fawn 

Hello! Haven't had a Shoesday post in a long time (April actually)!  If you follow my Instagram or have seen my posts on Pink Haired Princess, you'll know I fell instantly in love with the most recent Irregular Choice collection.  It was called Family Reunion and was basically a bunch of the oldest character heels remade in completely different uppers with some of the heels updated in new ways too.  So, I thought I'd work my way through my haul with fit reviews, starting with my most favourite pair (yep, I've mentally ranked them), Fantastic Fawn.

Day 1154 - Shoesday Tuesday

I'm realising throughout #365daysofIrregularChoice on Instagram that there's an awful lot of shoes I've had for a while that I've never posted fit reviews for here.  I can remember back to when I started my Shoesday Tuesday posts, as I'd been less able to get dressed and out of the house, so didn't have outfits to show here and I figured a time would come when I didn't have any fresh shoes to share either. That was the reason I kept it to once weekly, as any more than that and I might've run out.  Wow, why did I think so naively?!!  Do not fear, the posts will continue for a looong time!  Actually I rarely posted outfits last year, so still have those to share at some point too.  Ah the to-do list is another endless task.  Ok, back to the shoes and you may recall me buying these in mint, reviewed here in 2017.  Well I wasn't as enamoured with the black version to be honest, but the more I saw them, the more they grew on me.  I managed to get them in the sale and I should've sized down, because like the mint pair they are large.  Same deal, roomy all over, especially wide in the heel area.  Mine were sent missing the pearl straps, so I had to wait a while to get replacements from the factory.  Had it come down to it, they could've shared with the mint pair, but clipping and unclipping 4 sets of pearls would've become a bit tiresome.

Day 1153 - Shoesday Tuesday

Shoes: Blue I Had To by Irregular Choice 

I'm blogging! It's been a couple of weeks since I managed a Shoesday post here. A couple of months since I've done anything on Pink Haired Princess, but that seems a bit big to tackle just now.  I've really been struggling with energy this year, so it's been too difficult to manage blogging as well as posting daily on Instagram with the #365daysofIrregularChoice challenge. These shoes were one pair I showed this month as I'm doing a Valentine's theme for the whole of February and I thought to myself "I don't think I've ever featured them on Shoesday". A quick check back and I hadn't. These photos were actually taken in January 2018 after I'd bought the shoes in the sales. The light was a bit funny (seems like it was a very sunny January day) and maybe that's why I ignored them for so long, but I thought I'd use these photos rather than the recent ones I took for Instagram (pale pink fishnets then), so you have something different to see. I rather like them with these Muppets tights actually.

Day 1152 - Shoesday Tuesday

legs wearing heart print tights and purple, blue and pink metallic heart heeled shoes
Shoes: Irregular Choice Shoely Not

I think I said this in my Tingle Tastic Shoesday post last year, but I was really disappointed with this heart heel.  While I usually gravitate towards quirky heel shapes, this one just felt so unoriginal, dated and not Irregular Choice like.  However, I fell in love with the shoe when I saw it in Carnaby Street in May.  Heel aside, the uppers in all of the styles were beautiful.  I really love the strange colour combination on these and the fabric at the front is so pretty.  It's a sheer lurex style material with multi coloured threading through it and metallic polka dots on top and it's ruched, creating this really cool effect that's so shimmery.  It's something that doesn't come across that well on camera, it has to be seen in the flesh really.  I was pretty mesmerised by it when I first saw it.

Day 1151 - Shoesday Tuesday

I wasn't going to have a Shoesday post this week as I have a lot on and didn't think I'd manage that as well (I wasn't organised with photos).  However, I was snapping these for 365 Of Irregular Choice on Instagram and quickly popped them on and it turned into enough photos for a post, so here we are.  I've wanted these shoes for ages, any of the painted wedge styles to be honest, I wasn't overly fussed which colour (though y'know me and green or blue options and these do come in blue) and these popped up, but a size too small.  I wondered if I should just get them anyway and either try and swap them for one of the pairs in my size or for something else.  I also secretly hoped they would fit in the smaller size and I'd get to keep them!  Turns out, they do and I can.

Day 1150 - Shoesday Tuesday

Shoes: Rum Punch Irregular Choice 

Last week's Shoesday photos didn't go to plan, so I decided to scrap that post and start afresh for this week. I got a massive delivery last Monday of loads of new Irregular Choice shoes from their Hidden Gems sale. Nothing super special, but things I've had my eye on for ages, but never been able to buy because instead my money goes on the limited releases; character heels, Disney and the like. Rum Punch have been on my list for a long time. I love it when IC invent a new heel shape, they've had lots of interesting ones over the years and this is super weird and brilliant. From the back view, they look like standard stiletto heels, but turn sideways and you'll see they are almost wedge like. Not at all what you expect! If you stand from a front-side view, they do genuinely look like wedge heels (2nd image below), it's freaky.

Day 1149 - Shoesday Tuesday

legs wearing black Gothic glitter boots
Shoes: Black Luna Sparkles Irregular Choice 

I'm back, with another new-ish Irregular Choice style from AW18. I got these over the Black Friday....month. Haha, why do we make it last so long in the UK? Anyway, I'd had my eye on them from the start and had a list of stuff I hoped to get in the BF sales as usually, they are better than the January sales (or the start of the January sales anyway). They come in several colours, these are black, but as you can hopefully see, they have a strong green and purple glitter to them. Chunky glitter, so it is rough to touch, thankfully not against the foot or leg though (it's the dreamy metallic rainbow lining inside). I haven't noticed any glitter fall-out yet either.
