Okay so I’m gonna do that thing that I HATE bloggers doing, but hey ho here goes:
SOZ FOR NOT POSTING FOR SO LONG MY LOVELY SHOE FRIENDS
It’s been a busy time. Work has had me all tied up with a string of events that have kept me busy bee-ing. Like I’ve barely had time to breath/sleep/eat let alone think about all the lush shoes I want to wear.
I’m sitting on my lunch break right now trying to get through an ‘Event Hangover’ scoffing kinder eggs.
Gahh what is life
So I thought I’d shake things up a bit (and get a grip on life) and write a post about some pairs of shoes that I’ve had earmarked for a while to write about. They’ve been sitting heavy in the back of my mind and I must must must share.
I’m gonna do a three part series this week called:
SHOES OF THE FORGOTTEN WORLD
Banished to the garage collection, they don’t always get the wear they deserve. In fairness, there are only so many cupboards in the house and Mum has utilised these spaces like a ninja. They’re fit to bursting with shoes, along with a whole array of other clothes and accessories. She’s so sneaky. Sneaky but sassy.
SPOTLIGHT on part 1 of this series. Check out these lovelies:
Topshop Patent Purple Wedges
This is Topshop antique right here people
These are old. I vaguely remember my Mum bringing these home all those years ago and being seriously impressed by how shiny and high they were. And how much they reminded me of Cadbury chocolate bars.
FYI I was a plump child. Chocolate was never far from my mind.
They were clearly made for summer and floaty dresses and ice cream and BBQ balmy evenings and wavy hair.
All things I love
I think they have that classic, timeless look about them too. They might be old but I would so wear these now. Gimme gimme.
BTW the dress I’m wearing here was a true find by my Mother. She had completely exhausted the adult section of M&S so she decided to check out the children’s section (as you do). And that’s how I came to own this cute floral number.
Uh huh, 7 year old clothes. That’s what you get for being dwarf shaped. People mock, but it sure does have some perks.
VAT free too. Well done, Mother.
Anywho, back to the shoes.
POP OF COLOUR
That’s what they are. I’m usually not a huge fan of wedges ’cause they can be kinda clunky and awkward, like wearing bricks on the bottoms of your feet. But these are so dreamy, I’m willing to walk like a wally to wear ’em.
So there you have it. Topshop kicking it old style. These are perfect for summer occasions. How they ended up banished to the garage I shall never know.
Run free shoes
Um so yeah, I’ll be posting the next two parts of this series over the next few days. So check it out and discover what other gems are hidden in the garage.
Ta for checking in
