Keep your head, heels and standards high...

OH jesus. You know that scene in Confessions of a Shopaholic when the mannequins beckon her in to the shop? and then she's inside and she's imagining a whole new wonderful life and with that scarf between her fingers she's someone different and it's amazing and magical and gorgeous and totally worth it?! Completely materialistic and shallow, I hear you say.
Except I don't because I know you do it. I do it too.  I did it with these shoes. In the middle of New Look...on my own.


I'm almost ashamed that I spent literally my last pennies on these babies, but then I look at them again and I'm so not. Send me right now to shopaholics anonymous, I need help.

Bang on trend pointy toes? check.
To die for gold hardware? check.
Coveted ankle straps? check, check, check.




I've already got a hundred outfits in my head that these shoes are going to work so well with. First on my list is black skinnies and a crisp white t-shirt with some big statement jewellery and curly hair.

Please tell me I'm not the only one who plans outfits like this without an appropriate event?!
What do you think? was it an irresponsible purchase?! What would you wear them with?

  2. Actual shoe envy going on over here. I'd feel the need to throw lots of chunky gold on whilst wearing these (with something white, like you have mentioned!)
