Jimmy Choo Romy 100 Glitter Shoes Review

Jimmy Choo Romy 100 Glitter Shoes Review I’m really excited to be sharing this review with you right now! I have fallen in love with these shoes and couldn’t wait to share them with you! These are the Jimmy Choo Romy 100 in Peacock Glitter and they’re literally one of the most sexiest and prettiest pair of shoes I have seen. I’m hoping the photos do them justice, but they don’t capture their beauty in real life as well unfortunately, but I’m sure you can see just how sparkly they are! They are part of the AW17 collection and feature the classic pointed toe and stiletto heel that the Romy is known for. This pair is in the blue ombre glitter, called Peacock, with a metallic blue heel and leather piping details. They’re of course made in Italy and are a one of a kind shoe, which I simply cannot fault, so here they are! I hope you enjoy my review and if you’re here because you’re looking to buy these shoes, I recommend them! I’d hurry with the purchase too as I know they keep selling out on most places and are only available online in two different stores now, which I’ve linked just below! My Rating: Fit – 9/10 Style – 10/10 Glitter – 10/10 Colour – 10/10 Quality – 10/10 Appeal – 10/10 Comfort – 8/10 Buy these Jimmy Choo shoes online at Matches here & Farfetch here The Design & Quality Jimmy Choo did an absolutely fantastic design with the Romy! It comes in numerous heel heights (most commonly the 85 and 100) and the shape…

Joules Wellibob Ankle Rain Boots in Dog Print Review

As it’s my birthday next week, one of my friends (the same friend who bought me the Hunter Coral Wellies last time) wanted to buy me a present and one of the items I had been eyeing up for a while was a pair of the Joules Wellibobs. I’ve been a fan of the Chelsea ankle boot wellington since last year as they’re so easy to wear for running errands. They’re not bulky or cumbersome in any way, and they’re cute! Since I was allowed to have these Wellibobs in Dog Print early (just as well, it’s been raining every day!), I wanted to share a review with you and help any of you out that are looking to buy a pair of ankle wellingtons. Joules Wellibob Ankle Rainboots Rating: Comfort – 8/10 Style/Print – 9/10 Size – 9/10 Ease of wearing – 10/10 Waterproof Protection – 9/10 Price – 10/10 Buy Joules Wellibobs at Amazon here & Debenhams here Comfort – I gave these an 8/10 purely because they’re incredibly soft, roomy, and spongy on your feet, so they’re very comfortable to walk in, and I would have given them a 10, however when you don’t wear socks that are long enough to cover your ankles, the rubber on the elastic inserts rubs against your ankles and creates blisters. I found that out on Saturday when I wore them around town, but luckily I took longer socks with me. They will be fine for quick use with low cut socks, but if you’re planning on wearing them for a longer period of time, longer socks are needed to prevent…

The Furry Slides Or Sliders Trend Review + Top 12 Pairs To Buy

The Furry Slides & Sliders Trend Review + My Top 12 Picks Ok, before you think I have gone crazy with this blog post, hear me out! Since I’m going to be covering my thoughts on trends and different types of posts like that as well here on Raindrops of Sapphire, I thought starting out with a trend that’s quite controversial (it’s literally like Marmite) would be interesting. The fur slides trend has been popular since Rihanna brought them out with her collaboration with Puma late last year, so it’s not completely new. Celebrities have been wearing them for many months as well, like Khloe Kardashian, Sofia Richie, Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid and more, so it’s definitely something that everyone is seeing out and about. I wont lie as I never like to, so I will say that I thought fur slides were ridiculous when I first heard about them and saw them. I thought ‘Why on earth would anyone want a pair of slides with fur on them? Surely it defeats the purpose of the slide?’, but my mind was slowly changed after being exposed to the trend more and more, but mostly because so many brands were bringing out their take on it and I fell in love with one pair in particular. How did that happen? Well I was out shopping in Bristol with my mum a couple of weeks ago and we saw a lady wearing a pair of black faux fur slides in a shop. I did a double take on them and thought ‘Actually, you know what? In person these look pretty cool!’ so…

My New Gucci Princetown Floral Embroidered Loafers Review

Gucci Princetown Loafers With Floral Embroidery Review As you know, I have wanted a pair of Gucci Loafers for ages! This pair in particular – the Gucci Princetown Embroidered Floral Loafers. I saw these on their website months ago and thought they were incredibly cute, but I wasn’t sure on the pricing of them as they were quite expensive, then as I was thinking it over, I got stung worse with a price increase! They put the price up by £50 from what they originally were which meant that I put these shoes out of my head for a while, well I attempted to… but everyday I found myself back on the website admiring their beauty and checking if my size was in stock. A week ago, I decided to just go for it and ordered them. I realised I was waiting for nothing in particular and was probably going to get them at some point anyway, so why the hesitation? I put them on my credit card and the rest was history, or so I thought. I wasn’t sure on the sizing originally as I did have a 39.5 in my basket since I’m between a 39 and 40 and thought going in the middle would be ideal, however I kept hearing that they ran really small and I needed to size up, so with hesitation I reluctantly ordered the 40 instead and hoped for the best. I knew I should have listened to my gut though because when the 40 arrived, they were much too big on my feet and didn’t fit at all, which then left me…

My Nike Roshe Two SE Trainers in Oatmeal Review

Nike Roshe Two SE Trainers in Oatmeal, Beige & Khaki I am literally so excited to share my new sneakers/trainers with you! These are the Nike Roshe Two SE Trainers in Oatmeal and Light Khaki, but sometimes known as Beige. These were incredibly hard to get hold of though as they sold out everywhere online and are coveted by everyone. I had been wanting a pair of beige or cream coloured trainers for a long time as they are perfect for the Summer and when I spotted these on Brooklyn Blonde some time ago, I fell in love. So… my search began. I finally found them online at Sarenza and when I saw they were even cheaper than their retail price of £90, I jumped at the chance to order them. At only £74.90, it would be crazy not to! When they arrived, I had ordered a UK 6 and 7 to check which size I would be as I wasn’t sure, and it turns out the 6 was the size that fitted. I’m usually a 7 in trainers like Adidas and New Balance etc, but these seem to run bigger in size. They were snug on me at first and because I have an accessory navicular bone in my foot that sticks out, they were rubbing on it, but once I stretched them out and loosened them a lot, they were perfect and fitted just as I wanted them to. If I didn’t have that bone though, they would be perfect from the beginning. Regarding the way they look, I wasn’t completely sure if I liked how wide they…

My New Chloe Susanna Velvet Burgundy Ankle Boots

Chloe Susanna Burgundy Velvet Boots For Autumn 2016 I can only start by saying that I think these are, actually scrap that, I know these are my favourite boots I have ever owned. I’ve always loved the Chloe Susanna Boots since I saw them a few years ago, but I wasn’t ever completely sold on the black and gold leather combination, so they always remained on my wish list. A couple of weeks ago I saw these Chloe Susanna Boots in Burgundy Velvet for the Autumn 2016 collection and boy did my jaw drop! You know how much I love velvet since I just recently did a post on the velvet trend, as well as having worn it for years prior to it becoming popular, so given that it’s my favourite fabric – these are a dream come true. I wasn’t quite sure whether or not these boots would work for me as I do have very short legs and a bigger foot size, so I wondered if they might end up like clown boots, which made me hesitant about buying them. That coupled with the retail value of £870, it was very steep. Luckily, I received a coupon code in my email from Matches for £200 off a £600 spend, which meant I couldn’t pass that up! I ordered a size 39.5 as I’m between a 39-40 (or UK 6-7) as I had read somewhere they ran a little bit bigger for Italian sizing, so I played it safe in the middle. I’m so glad I did! The 39 would have been much too tight and the 40 would…

Men’s Adidas Hamburg Shock Red Trainers Review

I’m really excited by this post as Adam is going to be sharing some things with all of you on Raindrops of Sapphire now and again. You already met him in our engagement Q&A, but as I have been slowly bringing in men’s content to my posts, a review is next in line! So here is Adam’s review on the Adidas Hamburg Shock Red Gum Trainers/Sneakers for you all. Enjoy! Lorna xx.  After years of wearing smart shoes, high end designer high tops and even casual summer footwear like Toms, my feet had long forgotten what it was like to wear something truly comfortable. When I finally got the chance to wear these Adidas Hamburg Trainers in Shock Red Gum it was quite a shock (pun intended) how much softer and how much more comfortable they are. Even walking around town all day doesn’t diminish this effect, which is like music to my ears, and that’s without socks too. I went for my standard sports trainer/sneaker size (not designer high top size) of a men’s UK 9 and it was the right choice – a perfect fit. With that, I would say they definitely run true to size in case you are wondering about the fit. I know Lorna can vouch for the Adidas sizing too as she has a pair of their Gazelle’s in Burgundy and she takes her usual trainer size of a women’s UK 7. They are slim with a very low profile, so despite these trainers being quite bright, I find them to be understated and versatile. I’ve long shied away from this style of footwear,…

My Valentino Rockstud City Sandals in Tobacco Review

My Valentino Rockstud City Sandals in Tobacco I am literally so EXCITED to share my new shoes with you! You have already seen them on Instagram and Snapchat as I always give you guys a sneak preview of everything before it goes live here, but here are the proper photos and review for you. These are my new Valentino Rockstud City Sandals in Tobacco that I got a couple of weeks ago from My Theresa. I had been saving up for a new pair of Summer shoes and these were just perfect in every way! I don’t have any designer sandals, so these definitely fill that void and I couldn’t be happier about it. When I first saw them on My Theresa, I did look around on Google for more photos and saw these ones here for better reference which sold it for me. I knew I wanted them. I already have my Valentino Rockstud Heels in Patent Red and Black which I got last year, but these are entirely different so I don’t feel like I have doubled up at all. So, lets get to my review shall we? Fit – I wasn’t sure which size to go for with these Valentino Rockstud City Sandals as I’m a 40 in the heels in patent leather, but I know with sandals you always need to size down if there’s an open back and an open toe. I ordered both the 39.5 and the 39 on my credit card and I kept the 39. The 39.5 did fit me, but there was too much gapping at the toe area and the…
