Shoes (not diamonds) are a girl’s best friend…

17 May

I’ve become a little shoe obsessed lately. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve always loved pretty shoes from my first pair of Marc Jacobs pumps to my current obsession with Swedish Hasbeens. And loving and buying pretty shoes does run in my family as well, with both my mum and sister having rather impressive collections of some pretty awesome shoes – Irregular Choice and Betsey Johnson anyone?! Below are a few of my current shoe crushes and I do apologise to anyone out there who also develops a crush on some of the more pricey pairs (and to their respective partners if they have one!).

I saw a girl wearing the pair on the left on the bus I was on today and had to ask her where they were from. Her answer of Prada almost broke my heart (£££) but I couldn’t help but fall in LOVE with them. She looked all kinds of awesome too!

 These are my current shoe love. Swedish Hasbeens wedges for H&M. They are THE most comfortable shoes I have ever worn (although the blisters on my heel/ankle would say differently). But a little more wear and they will be the most comfortable heels/platforms I own. My mama has also amazingly bought me the pair on the right (I will be paying her back) after she found the pair in my size in Birmingham (where I used to live). I anticipate comfiness again and look forward to them arriving in the post! This is also my embracing of my Scandinavian roots – my dad’s dads side of the family are Danish originally.

Every girl needs a pair of disco flats and these gold lamé leather beauties from Newbark are just the pair to keep your feet happy! At £295 they are a pricey pair but definitely an invesment if you can afford them!

A relatively unknown label (to me anyway) is Paloma Barceló and these mint green Natalia suede espadrille wedges are absolutely divine! Less pricey at £185. The label has been going since 1960 though, so these Spaniards obviously know what they’re doing when it comes to shoes!! I love how these shoes remind me of mint choc-chip and pistaschio ice-cream. Perfect summer shoes, don’t you think?

And finally, if it’s a pair of statement heels you’re after, Lanvin has got it right on the money with these hot pink and splash of gold babies! I’m willing to bet that if you wore these shoes out, girls would be jealous of you and guys would be staring at the killer figure you would be cutting in them! Now, if I only had a spare £640 to spend on these (yeah, that’s more than a months rent for most people, including myself!!)….

I’ll just leave you all to continue drooling, like I am. Until next time…
