New shoes :D


I bought these gorgeous gorgeous shoes at a carboot a few months ago for 50p. They match all of my criteria for what makes a great shoe! However, I was very upset to discover that it'll cost £30 to re-heel and re-sole them because they're so old (I think thats a bit too expensive, especially when theres no guarantee it'll make them wearable). So I decided to invest in a brand new pair!

I’ve been eyeing up several similar designs for a while now. I wanted a nice pair for school, that aren’t too high and won’t be too hazardous (I’m quite clumsy). And I thought black was probably a more practical colour for me, as I basically always have black tights on.

I came across the perfect pair today, these Hush Puppies from Schuh (£54.99). They're really comfy and just the right height! Tadaa!


Some of the 'shortlisted' shoes:

Tunic - Topshop
Belt - Accessorize
Cardigan - Topshop
Scarf - Vintage
Shoes - Schuh
Bag - Monsoon


The tunic was one of my London purchases. I LOVE the topshop tunics, I have three, all in different colours!!

That's such a shame about your shoes, they are lovely. I've been looking for a similar pair but no joy yet.

I'm sorry about your poor vintage shoes but your new ones are darling too.

I've been hunting high and low for the perfect autumn brogue, surprisingly New Look have a good selection but the problem is they are all too similar to the other pairs I have. Oh, the trials of looking good... :)

i too am getting some brown brogues from Schuh very soon, I had some black ones from Topshop last year but I wore them out!!

your blue tunic is <3 i shall look out for it in Topshop now... also, do you have a close up of your belt? it looks like the perfect black belt...
