Day 1182 - Shoesday Tuesday

Since it's 'revival' many years ago, I usually buy at least one pair of perspex heels every season from Irregular Choice. I really enjoyed the t-bar series; Tiny Ted, Pretty Poodle, Barnacle Betty and Blossom Bunny and then the slight change of shape for Bellissima. I guess these are in a similar vein, but I've been torn with whether or not to buy them.

Day 1181 - Shoesday Tuesday

Shoes: Felt circus platforms | REDValentino 

I've had these shoes for a couple of years now, but I thought I'd share my fit review today and I fancied a change from the usual Irregular Choice! I lusted after these shoes from the moment I saw them in the Autumn/Winter 2015/16 collection and eventually got them in my size. REDValentino is like the fun, flirty, younger sister of the Valentino brand.  Ever since their launch, I've loved their aesthetic and this isn't my first pair of their shoes.  I've also always loved circus themed things, I don't know why as I've never actually been to a real circus!

Day 1180 - Shoesday Tuesday

Shoes: Felicette | Irregular Choice 

The minute I saw these boots last season, I knew I had to have them.  Then I tried to talk myself out of them, after getting the much fancier, but similar themed Warp Speed.  I resisted them when they were heavily discounted during the Black Friday sales (only because I had no money) and once the Christmas sales came, they'd sold out everywhere.  I kept trying to console myself, saying they'd maybe be too low heeled, the colour wasn't as exciting as the stock photos showed etc etc.  However, Lottie's eventually reduced them and they were the only remaining place I could find with my size in this colour (they also come in black) and I had a voucher to spend too, so I swooped and I'm so glad I did.  They far exceeded my expectations.

Day 1179 - Shoesday Tuesday

wearing galactic tights with silver pointed booties with large bow
Shoes: Power Surge | Irregular Choice 

These shoe-boots are from the SS20 Lightning Bolt collection.  You may remember I bought the fluffy unicorn print Heavens Above and pastel Galactic Thunder on launch day, after struggling to decide my favourites in this range!  I was intrigued by these little booties, which also came in pink, black or turquoise.  After much deliberation, I decided the silver were my favourite and picked them up in the summer sale.  What drew me to these, were the pink heel as it was really different to my other 2 pairs which are mirrored metallic.  This one is not at all like I thought, I was expecting a shiny finish, but it's matte, rubberised, a bit like Nars makeup packaging.  I really love the bright rainbow slub throughout the silver fabric and they have a bit of an 80's electro vibe in style and colour.
