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…

Pretty Things Thursday

4 Mar

I’m currently typing this with freshly painted nails – they appear to be dry but that is never the case so I’m being cautious!

New nails!

I’ve found a lot of pretty things over the last few weeks – this feature has been absent for personal reasons…I’ve only really been able to update once a week with all the things that have been going on in my life recently! I’ll start off with the most recent pretty things I’ve found…

Pretty cute tee-shirts from Skunkboy Creatures! With an original drawing by Elsie Cake herself!

A pretty picture from Sherri DuPree.

Pretty colour scheme from Giant Dwarf (depending on birthday money situation after Saturday, I shall be purchasing these!!).

Really pretty shoes! I have a crush on brogues at the moment but nowhere near enough money to satiate it! Haha.

Pretty yarn from Debbie Stoller’s new yarn line, Stitch Nation! I’m so bummed it’s only available in the US right now. The colours in the Full o’ Sheep line (hehe, what a great name!, and featured above) are sumptious and I wouldn’t mind a ball of each!

So there are a few pretty things to help get you through this weekend! I may be a little late with my Sunday Round Up this week as IT’S MY BIRTHDAY ON SATURDAY!!! YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY!!! It’s also Katja and Erin’s birthday’s tomorrow so go wish them a happy birthday too! I’m bummed I can’t be at Erin’s Alice In Wonderland themed birthday party in Springfield this weeked (so is Katja) but I’m sure we will all spend a brthday weekend together at some point! Happy Birthday ladies! I’m glad and honoured I’m able to include you in my new circle of friends! Crafty kisses and hugs!

To all you out there, have a great weekend and I hope your week has been good to you!
