If the shoe fits..buy it in every colour

9 July 2011

After not getting any shoes yesterday at Bluewater, I decided I was going to get up early this morning and pop to Lakeside to find some. Shoes I wanted and shoes I got! I'm not sure what is the average shoe size in the UK but I'm a size 4 and there never seems to be any size 4s, so I'm glad I was lucky today. Here's a look at what I got:

One of my main dilemmas with buying the shoes for graduation was the colour. I wasn't sure if there were actually any rules about wearing non-black shoes, because most people wear black anyway. This then gave me a reason to get two pairs! Any excuse ;) The black pair are from New Look and they were £15.99. I had my mind set on wedges as I am a massive wedge fan and knew I wanted the extra support on the day (in case of falling over..the idea is terrifying me!). New Look do these wedges in black, mink and beige, and I already have the mink as they are just so comfortable and are suede like material on the outside. This pair also has an added bit of detail on the front (which doesn't show up on camera) which is like a wrap-over effect. These shoes are also in wide-fit which just generally means they are slightly more comfortable. Perfect.

I then went to Zara and picked up these gorgeous leopard print wedges. Leopard print is one of my fave prints and can make the most simple outfit look glam, so I figured, if on the day I decide to wear these shoes, it will make a simple, fairly boring suit style outfit look completely gorgeous! The outside is actually a horse hair feel which is so fab, and I still get the height of the wedge. These were in the sale for £30 so am really happy with them!

On the way home I popped into Sainsbury's and caught my eye on this little bag of small Sheer Blonde by John Frieda. You get 50mls of the shampoo, conditioner and crystal hold hairspray and of course the see through bag which is great for taking away on holidays or at home generally, and it was £3.49. I couldn't say no and thought it would be great for when I go away on holiday in a couple of weeks time, for any toiletries or make up. They also had it in the brunette version for anyone interested.

In Sainsbury's, I also picked up a couple of DVD's as they're having a huge DVD sale with most things around £3 to £4, so picked up a couple of old school DVDs such as the original Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (perfect for lazy sundays in!) and a couple of others. Some great bargains to be had at the moment! Go spoil yourself!

  23. I then went to Zara and got these lovely panther print wedges. Panther print is one of my fave prints and can make the most basic outfit look glitz, so I figured, if on the day I choose to wear these shoes, it will make a straightforward, genuinely exhausting suit style outfit look totally perfect! The outside is really a stallion hair feel which is so fab, regardless I get the tallness of the wedge. These were in the deal for £30 so am truly content with them!
