You’d be forgiven for thinking I’d given up on Shoeperwoman’s Shoeper Challenge, as it’s been ages since I’ve snapped myself wearing a pair of shoes from my collection and officially ‘saved’ them from being ditched when the challenge ends next Feb. But I am planning on sticking to my guns, I’m just rubbish at remembering to take photos when there’s any kind of natural light (you’ll see from the below pics how much my camera hates the soft orange light in my flat – fuzziness ahoy).
But I’m keen to get back on track and work my way through my hundred or so pairs of shoes as quickly as I can, starting with three pairs from New Look. Two pairs of tattly old Primark ballet flats have already been binned, which gave me the opportunity to snap up a new pair of comfy sandals recently, which coincidentally, are my first save of this post. They’re a kind of orange/tan colour, and work much better in warm weather than clunky black shoes.
I’ve also whipped out a pair of low heeled black patent peep-toes with cut-out strapping across the front when the temperature dropped today. I love this height of heel for day and New Look do it really well. The dress, with its parrot print, was an amazing find in the Oasis sale for only £10.
And finally, I’m afraid this is a bit of a sneaky outfit recreation, because I didn’t get a solo photo on the day. This is what I wore to the wedding I recently went to in Australia. The black tights were a must, I’m afraid. It was pouring with rain, freezing cold and just not the right day for the 7 denier nude ones I’d optimistically packed…
I got the dress while I was in Melbourne from an outlet store called Clear It on Brunswick street in Fitzroy. The place was floor to ceiling Alannah Hill. Heaven! If you’re ever in Melbourne, definitely hunt it down for some amazing bargains. This baby (which is 100% silk and originally retailed at over $400 worked out at about £60 and I got another frock for £30!
