I bagged these gold Brian Atwood sandals at a sample sale. I spent so long trying things on in the changing room that by the time I emerged they'd taken another 50% off everything. Who says procrastination doesn't pay?
I have a bit of a soft spot for 'ugly' heels and Marni's chunky clodhoppers generally fit the bill quite nicely. Super high but super comfortable, they're two of my prerequisites in a shoe!
Now, I love all my shoes with a passion, but I think that like any great loves, you only get 2 or 3 in your life if you're lucky. And for me, these lilac suede pumps from Topshop Unique were love at first sight. The colour, the floating platform, the deconstructed heel…*sighs*. Be still my beating heart.
I'm a firm believer that new shoes cure most of life's ills. I'm also a raving Wangette. Hence why when I got back from holiday I bought these Alexander Wang mules to cheer me up. Nice, hey?
Another Marni pair that I simply couldn't live without - I think they go with everything (even though they clearly don't). They also hold a special place in my heart as they are the first pair of designer shoes that I saved up and paid for myself. *Princess alert*. They were also the subject of a bit of controversy when Next completely ripped them off and I got so outraged that I actually wrote to Marni in the manner of an angry villager. Nothing came of it, though. I think I was secretly hoping they'd congratulate my dobbing-in of Next with a free skirt or something.
These sculptural Gil Carvalho for Faith bad boys are my version of Dorothy's ruby slippers. In the infamous words of Carrie Bradshaw: 'They pinch my feet. But I love them.' Anyway, I've learnt that if you persevere with shoes that render you crippled the first few times you wear them, they generally come around.
A girl always remembers her first pair of designer heels. Generously donated (and hardly worn) by my cousin, these black Chloe Paddington boots I wore so much I actually put a hole in the sole. I always thought it was an urban myth that you could do that but, lo, I managed it well enough. I've walked more miles in these babies than should ever be walked in a pair of Chloe boots.
I've sadly forgotten one of my very favourite pairs at work (my grey patent Stella McCartney wedges) so they'll have to be featured another time. I'm also pretty appalled that I'm yet to own a single pair of Louboutins. *slaps herself* Sorry, I'm veering into brat territory.
My fantasy shoes would be a pair from Nicholas Kirkwood, Charlotte Olympia or a very chic pair of Chanel ballerina flats. What's on your dream list?
I'm tagging the following:
Knock yourselves out ladies! xx
