Day 1191 - Shoesday Tuesday

Shoes: Deckchair Diva | Irregular Choice

I had to rake through my photos folders for these images after being too knackered to photograph anything this week, combined with very poor weather.  It's proper dark and cold today, like needing a light on during the day kinda dark and ice hitting your face (so my sister tells me).  Apparently it's to be like this until mid May.  Say it isn't so!  Anyway, I have tonnes of photos I took when I was doing the IC challenge in 2019 on Instagram, including lots of styles I've yet to review here.  This was the ice cream sundae heel (not to be confused with the twice released ice cream cone heels) which launched for Spring 2018.  I bought Arctic Roll, with the pom-poms and tassels, in the summer sale (how I held my nerve until then, I don't know) and then saw these for under £50 on eBay the next January.

Day 1190 - Shoesday Tuesday

Shoes: Bento Baby | Irregular Choice

I just remembered about these shoes that I bought from the last Irregular Choice sale and haven't spoken about.  You know how I was a little unsure about Seafoam Queen? Well whenever I saw Bento Baby, I knew they were the perspex heel of the year for me.  They were part of the sushi collection with Sarsparilly which included clothes and this particular pair were an IC exclusive colourway.  There was another variation (same style but different name) with the chrome finish to the heel instead of being transparent and yellow and lilac uppers, but I loved everything about this pair.

Day 1189 - Shoesday Tuesday

Shoes: Finders Keepers | Irregular Choice 

I'm going to tell you from the outset that these photos are rubbish! It kept snowing on and off, filling the room with blue light and I didn't have the energy or time to retake them.  I've adjusted as best I could, but the lighting/colours aren't perfect (particularly of the heel, which I'll come onto later).  So after falling in love with the Satine thigh high boots and eventually buying them, albeit slightly apprehensively, as I wasn't sure how flexible they were going to be at the knee (given I'm usually in a wheelchair), I was really pleased to see different uppers of the same style in these Finders Keepers for AW19.

Day 1188 - Shoesday Tuesday

Shoes: Hop Along | Irregular Choice 

In March 2016, Irregular Choice released another variation of their bunny heel. There was just one style (Hop Along), sold alongside three colours of Bunnie Love; a perspex heeled court with bunny ears and pom pom tail. As much as I loved the new heel, the colour put me off. White isn't exactly practical and I already had the glitter bunny heeled Bunnykins in white lace that had launched the previous Christmas. I couldn't justify it, so instead bought the pink Bunnie Love, which I had to send back twice because I wasn't happy with them (frayed and snagged ribbons and some marks to the uppers), so I didn't get anything in the end from that launch.
