Day 1175 - Shoesday Tuesday

Shoes: The Cat In The Hat | Irregular Choice 

I've finished my festive footwear posts, so this week, I have another recent purchase, The Cat In The Hat boots from the Dr Seuss collection.  This collection was split into 2 parts, with CITH coming first, then The Grinch in time for Christmas.  I didn't buy anything from that launch...there's several things I like, but I can't afford them after all the Christmas stuff.  I also technically couldn't afford these and therefore didn't buy them on launch day, but a birthday voucher I'd been saving for something else (but ended up getting for a better deal elsewhere) meant I saved quite a bit.

Day 1174 - Shoesday Tuesday

Shoes: Nutcracker | Irregular Choice 

I have my final festive footwear from the recent Irregular Choice collection to share tonight. On launch day, these immediately caught my eye because of the pretty, pastel colours and how different they were to the other more traditional red, gold and green pairs.  I thought the same thing last year about Sweet Ginger Love, which were (very sadly) too low heeled for me.  They of course, tell the story of The Nutcracker with the soldier on one shoe and sugar plum fairy on the other.  I was a ballet dancer when I was younger and we put on The Nutcracker production one year, I must've been 11 or 12.  I got to be a...rat, the King Rat, but still a rat.  I was gutted, I wanted the big dresses and layers of net, but alas we had to stitch a tail onto grey leggings from Happit and rummage through a pile of charity shop 'treasures' our teacher bought (I ended up with an oversized mustard shirt and cropped sequin waistcoat).  We had swords and had a whole dance situated around sword fighting.  Not the glamour I hoped for!  Anyway, it was my birthday at the time and my childhood school friend bought me a teddy bear with a red bow around it's neck and I named it Clara, after the main character in The Nutcracker.  I still have Clara, for about 20 years, I couldn't sleep without her, she went everywhere with me, even just overnight stays.

Day 1173 - Shoesday Tuesday

Shoes: Sleigh Ride | Irregular Choice 

Hello, back with another Christmas style from the recent Irregular Choice launch.  I was supposed to post last week, but was plagued with migraines on top of a cold.  I've still got the cold, I just can't seem to shift it.  Anyway, last time I showed you the advent calendar boots and the boots today are another really innovative concept.

Day 1172 - Shoesday Tuesday

Shoes: Advent Adventures | Irregular Choice

Look what arrived today, just in time for opening!  Let me start by saying the Christmas collection this year from Irregular Choice is literally jaw-dropping.  The light up fabric we were introduced to in the Space Station collection features, the Santa heel is back (yay) and glittery, there's musical heels, paint your own Santa heel and these, advent calendar boots.  If you can't think it up, IC will!

Day 1171 - Shoesday Tuesday

LED light up boots in dark with rocket shaped heel
Shoes: Warp Speed | Irregular Choice 

At the end of last month, the Irregular Choice 'Space Station' collection launched. A colourful range of footwear and accessories including the box/sole design from this season, a brand new concept heel and an original way of giving us lights. The boots I bought are Warp Speed (in black) and I fell in love at first sight with the design, as it reminded me of my old poodle ankle boots, a favourite of mine. These fit a little looser, with the flap not being quite as close to the leg and no option to wear them folded down, but still the overall shape is there and I'm loving it.

Day 1170 - Shoesday Tuesday

grumpy bear blue and good luck bear green fur court shoes with pink tights
Shoes: Grin And Share It | Irregular Choice (Care Bears) 

Another Care Bear style to review for you this week and a brand new character heel.  We saw two different heel concepts in this collection; the sleeping bear on the crescent moon (in green or glitter) and then two variations of these bear heels.  Each shoe has a different bear, this pair; Cheer Bear (pink) and Tenderheart Bear (brown) and both uppers are also different.  Cheer Bear sits on the green, Good Luck Bear upper (I had this one when I was younger) and Tenderheart is on the Grumpy Bear blue upper.  The fur fabric is beautifully soft, a short pile, but really lovely to touch and there's lots of embellishments and embroidery and little sticky-up ears and even tails out the back.

Shoes: Full Of Cheer | Irregular Choice (Care Bears) 

Another Care Bear style for you this week from the recent Irregular Choice launch. These boots, like the Kingdom Of Caring shoes last time, were one of the few items we saw previewed before release and I knew I definitely wanted them.

Day 1168 - Shoesday Tuesday

Shoes: Kingdom Of Caring | Irregular Choice (Care Bears)

Hello, feels like forever since I've written a shoe fit review here.  It all felt a bit alien yesterday taking photos of my feet again!  Between not really buying many shoes so far this year and not feeling able to try them on and contort myself to take photos (or sometimes write the blog posts), it's been quiet here!  However, last Friday IC launched their collaboration with Care Bears, which was right up my street and I indulged in all but one of the higher heels, so I have them all to review this month.  Starting with these, probably my favourites actually, Kingdom Of Caring.  I won't talk too much about the design details as I'll cover that in my main review on Pink Haired Princess, but I found these most comfortable out of all the styles.  Straight away, they just felt 'right' on me.  They are slightly generous in size, not enough to size down I wouldn't think, but if like me, you often sit between sizes, I'd go for the smaller.  I bought mine in a 38/5.

Another Irregular Choice exclusive colourway for you this week from the lightning bolt heels collection.  I bought both the IC exclusives as the prints and colours appealed to me most.  You can see my furry, unicorn courts here

Day 1166 - Shoesday Tuesday

I was planning on posting my fit review of these weeks ago, but stuff kept getting in the way. I finally got the post finished tonight though, also managed to squeeze in taking photos of the other lightning bolt pair I bought, so I'll aim for those next week. I've already written an in-depth review with loads of photos on Pink Haired Princess, so won't go into the style of these Heavens Above too much here, but this post is quite photo heavy, they're just so photogenic!

Day 1165 - Shoesday Tuesday

The last of my Irregular Choice Super Fan collection fit reviews today. This is another pair Rowena designed and I've already reviewed them in-depth on Pink Haired Princess, if you haven't seen that. Like I said over there, this rainbow sheen on the snakeskin pattern really, really shines in these photos. You can not only see the high-shine, but all the rainbow colours, it's so cool.

Let's just gloss over the technical issues I had getting to this point today.  Honestly this laptop will be the death of me! Think I've sorted it, so here we are with another pair from the Super Fan collection that launched earlier this year, this time by Rowena.  You can see Tomi's dinosaurs here last week.

Day 1163 - Shoesday Tuesday

Shoes: Irregular Choice Roarsum (by Tomi Platts)

I'm back with another shoe fit review and this is a pair I'll also be reviewing in closer detail on Pink Haired Princess in the near future, so keep an eye out for that.  I did blog the other week over there and explained that I have a new laptop, so I'm struggling with uploading and editing photos and I do feel the colour is 'off' here, but thankfully just of my legs and the background rather than the actual shoes and that's what you're here to see!  So, Tomi designed this colourway of the mega popular Roarsum dino heels.  You probably know I have a pair of the originals (fit review here), in the croc-patent-floral material, so I'll refer back to those in this post, along with the other dino heels that launched last year for Family Reunion, Jurassotops.

Day 1162 - Shoesday Tuesday

Shoes: Irregular Choice Just Me And The Sea (The Little Mermaid) 

Happy New Year! Hope you're feeling rejuvenated after the break.  I've been struggling from doing a little more over the festive period and the 365 day challenge on Instagram took it's toll on me, as I tried to catch up on days I'd missed when I'd previously felt unwell.  It was all just too much in the end, but it's finished and I can concentrate on other things now (I'm very aware these days of only being able to do one thing at a time).  So, today I have the last of my Disney Princesses shoes to show you.
