My New Jimmy Choo Melba Tan Suede Booties

As promised, here are proper photos of my brand new Jimmy Choo Melba suede booties in Sandalwood. I purchased these in the Jimmy Choo boutique in Selfridges while in London as you know and I adore them! I never ever purchase things on a whim when they cost a lot of money, but the fact that I bought these after seeing them in the shop speaks volumes about how much I love them. I did manage to have a think about them for about 10 minutes, but they were absolutely beautiful to look at, the gold heel was the icing on the cake really, it tipped me over the edge! These actually combine everything I love in a boot. They are an ankle boot, which is what I love the most with my skinny jeans. The heel isn’t too high, it’s around 3.5 inches, which to me is a good height for walking around in. They filled that void of tan/brown high heels that I had, as for some reason, all my heeled ankle boots seemed to be black! They also have a thick and chunky heel which I love as it makes them sturdier to walk in, and did I mention one other thing? They are insanely gorgeous! I had actually never been too interested in Jimmy Choo before as you know I’m always a Christian Louboutin fan, however I haven’t really been into his newer designs lately and absolutely fell for these, so even though I am broke now, they were definitely worth it! I did manage to save up quite a lot of money for my London…

My Christian Louboutin Pigalle 100 Shoes In Black Kid

You may remember this post I made back in January asking your advice between the Christian Louboutin Pigalle and the Ron Ron, both in black. It was a tough choice and the votes were quite evenly split actually, but I decided to go with the Pigalle! They are just such a classic and I wanted a pointed toe black heel as I don’t have one! The Ron Rons were just too similar to a pair that I already own, so I didn’t want to double up. Plus, they were suede and I already have quite a lot of suede shoes. I was originally thinking about getting the Pigalle 85 in Black Kid, however those had completely sold out everywhere and trying to track down a pair of Pigalle 100 in Black Kid was just as difficult! They are a very popular classic shoe and are in high demand, so I have been waiting all this time to get a pair! These gorgeous shoes were sold out online, everywhere… and sold out in most boutiques as well, but I finally managed to track a pair down in the Christian Louboutin boutique in Selfridges in London! I had them mail ordered so they arrived a few days ago and I couldn’t be happier! My other Christian Louboutin Pigalle heels in 85 are size 39.5 and really tight, so I opted for a 40 in these so they weren’t as painful. They fit perfectly on the right foot and slightly loose on the left, but they don’t give me pain so they are more than perfect! Walking in the 100 height is actually…

Styling The New Deichmann x Caroline Blomst Shoes

I have been really excited about this little collaboration for quite some time, but it has been under wraps and kept a secret until today! Now, I can finally share with you this project I have been working on and showcase some fantastic shoes with you! Fellow fashion blogger, Caroline Blomst, has teamed up with the popular shoe brand, Deichmann, to create a 7 piece collaboration collection and it’s gorgeous! I was lucky enough to be able to try and style two of the shoes from the collection and this is what I came up with! For those of you who might not be familiar with Deichmann, they have stores across the globe in 23 different countries and two of their flagship stores are here in the UK, in London. They have worked with some of the biggest names in Hollywood, including Halle Berry and Cindy Crawford and are now collaborating with bloggers, which I find to be fantastic! Caroline Blomst was one of those lucky bloggers who was able to create and design a collection with one of the leading shoe retailers and has a great sense of style herself. I expected a collection that was nothing less than beautiful and she definitely didn’t come up short! The line features 7 different shoes, ranging from kitten heels and high heels, to boots, trainers and flats. It’s very diverse and there is something for everyone, no matter your style, height or preference! Want to know the best part about this collaboration though? It’s the price! The shoes retail from £17.99 – £27.99 and speaking from experience after wearing two of…

Christian Louboutin Pigalle or Ron Ron in Black?

Christian Louboutin Pigalle 85 Black I’m in need of your help! My love for Christian Louboutin shoes started a few years ago on my birthday in 2009 when I tried a pair on in Harvey Nichols in London. Since then, I ended up getting quite a few pairs after saving all of my money and spending my savings (which I do now regret) on Louboutin shoes in the sale and some even at retail! Since I was very much into colour and statement pieces back then, I never liked the look of classics, but as my taste has matured and I have grown up a lot, I find it really hard to believe that I never actually bought a classic pair of Christian Louboutin shoes! Now that I am into wearing black heels a lot with my outfits, I thought it would make sense for me to get a pair in the near future. I do own a Pigalle 85 in Coral already, but they do hurt my feet since they are quite tight. I was thinking about trying them in a size bigger to see if they were less painful. There is just something so classic about the Pigalle (above), it has an allure to it and it’s one of Louboutin’s most famous shoes! On the other hand, I have always been partial the shape of the Ron Ron shoe below. It has a curve to it that has always attracted me and I love the fact that it’s in black suede. These shoes are a little higher at 100mm instead of 85mm, but they have more of a…

My New Isabel Marant Bekket Sneakers In Khaki

Those of you who know me will know that I have had a little obsession with the Isabel Marant Bekket sneakers for quite some time. I already developed a little collection of hidden heel sneakers or trainers over the past year and a bit, but from brands like Topshop, River Island and ASH. My dream pair was always the Isabel Marant sneakers, but I could never afford their price tag and I always assumed they would be too heavy and bulky for my small legs. I didn’t live anywhere near a place I could try them on, so I always put my lust for them at the back of my mind (even though I would check eBay now and then). I was out in town with my boyfriend on the weekend and we took a wander into Square Boutique in Bath. I’ve been in their multiple times before as they stock brands like AG Jeans, J Brand, Rag & Bone, Marc Jacobs etc, so it’s always been a store I was fond of. I didn’t know that they had started stocking so many Isabel Marant pieces though! That’s when I saw these! The Isabel Marant Bekket Over Basket Sneakers in Khaki, in the sale! They were literally a dream price, one that I didn’t think I would ever find these shoes at, that’s for sure! I was hoping that they had a size 40 as these run a bit small, but unfortunately they were out of stock, so after trying the 39 and them being quite tight, I put them back on the shelf and left the store. It was…

My New Carvela Kurt Geiger Burgundy Tara Boots

I wanted to introduce you to my brand new Carvela Kurt Geiger Tara Ankle Boots in Burgundy Suede. I had seen these boots online for a long while and thought they were gorgeous, but I couldn’t afford the price tag of £130 for them. Thankfully (and with luck) they popped up on eBay brand new in my size for almost half price! I was so excited and couldn’t wait to get them! The buckles and cut out sections on boots has been really popular for quite a few months now, but I hadn’t really bought into the trend as most of the boots were flat and a bit too masculine for my taste, but I completely fell in love with these Tara boots when I saw them as they are heeled and the perfect shade of burgundy. I wore these new boots while I was out yesterday and I actually got a compliment on them from someone I didn’t know. A lady stopped me in the street to say she loved my boots and where did I get them from, so I don’t think it’s only me that loves them! Kurt Geiger did an amazing job designing these ankle boots for their Carvela line! I plan on wearing them with lots of skinny jeans during the Autumn, but I think they would look equally as good with dresses and shorts for the Summer! If anyone is wondering about sizing, they are fairly true to size, I usually take a size 6 in Kurt Geiger boots and these fit me perfectly in size 6, just a little smaller in the toe…

My Favourite Autumn Boots

As I have mentioned before plenty of times on my blog, Autumn is my favourite time of year. One of the reasons as to why Autumn is my favourite time of year is because of boots! Boots are a huge staple in my wardrobe and I absolutely love wearing them! Since I’m pretty much a skinny jeans and jacket kind of girl, ankle boots are my choice of footwear during the colder months as they are so easy to wear and they pretty much go with anything I put on, all the while keeping my feet warm. I thought it would be really fun to put this post together on my favourite boots that I own for Autumn! I do own more than 8 ankle boots, however since I was choosing my favourite pairs, I have only selected 8 different pairs for this post. These are 4 different high heeled boots and then 4 flat boots, each of them perfect in their own way! You will find that even though I love colour, most of my collection is really classic! I have a variety of black boots, brown boots and taupe boots, which means I can wear them with most of the outfits I choose to put on.

My New Chloe Burgundy Platform Booties

You may remember seeing these in my birthday presents post a couple of weeks ago, they are my new Chloe Burgundy Platform Ankle Booties! They aren’t brand new as such though as I did purchase them at a second hand sale, but they are in almost new condition. I bought them as a birthday present to myself from a Fashion Bloodhound sale in Bath at the St. Francis Hotel. They are a company that’s local to me and they source designer clothes and accessories that are pre-owned and then sell them at pop up shops and online. They had some amazing pieces there from Isabel Marant, Mulberry, Balenciaga, Louis Vuitton and many more designers, but I couldn’t afford any of the big pieces. I really only wanted these Chloe boots though after I found them. As soon as I saw them, I loved them. Naturally I was attracted to them as they are burgundy, but they aren’t too high because of the platform either, so they are easy to walk in. I do have the box and they originally came from Net-A-Porter some years ago. When it comes to finding boots for myself, I usually like to pick boots that have a thicker heel and a comfortable platform, and boots that are not too steep, so I can walk around in them without feeling much pain, so these definitely fall into that criteria. Have any of you bought second hand clothes or shoes before? I used to have a thing about it, but I usually just clean up everything that I have purchased (which isn’t new) and it’s good to…
