New Shoes

Right, so here I am again. As usual, it's been a while. I've decided that you lot surely don't expect anything more from me by now, so it's not like I'm letting anyone down! That's my theory anyway :)

I have been buying a ridiculous amount this week.
I know I always say that. And to be fair, yes, I do actually buy a lot of stuff. But this week seriously takes the biscuit! I actually think I need therapy or counselling of some sort to cure my shopping addiction. It can't be normal. I need help!

So, I'm going to share with you some of my buys. As I said, there's been a LOT - so what I'm going to do is break it down into sections. As you've probably guessed from the title, today's post is going to be based on my new footwear.. You also have the pleasure of 'clothes', 'cosmetics' and 'accessories - jewellery & bags' to look forward to, sooner or later :)

I've actually been signed off work sick (don't really want to go into that though..), so these have all been online purchases. It's just too easy to click those buttons & then have lovely packages come to your door!

First we have:

So.. these were all from
They were in the sale at £5 each. And I also had a 10% discount code = bargains.
Just a note, those first pairs aren't actually as shiny as the flash has made them look. They're a more matte finish, then just the bows are sequinned.

Then there's these:

More bargains from my favourite site of the moment:!
I have bought SO much stuff from there recently it's ridiculous! But seriously, their things are amazing - such good quality, for such good prices. Check it out if you haven't already!
(Oh & just to convince you further, there's free delivery on all clothing until midnight tonight - so go, now! Then come back & tell me what you've got!)

I loved these on the site, they looked the perfect neutral colour & just gorgeous. Then I wasn't sure when they arrived.. But now, having photographed them & seeing these pics, I love them again :) I actually think they're amazing..
I've totally bought into the whole brogue trend.. I love them. I've now got quite a few pairs, in various colours - HOWEVER, I haven't worn them! What's the matter with me!? I love them on other people, then I feel like I look silly in them when I put them on.. But these are going to be the ones that break that cycle, I know :)

Ok, now onto boots:

Again, these are purchases - they're lovely. Really soft & comfy.

I also got these ones from the site I mentioned earlier (


My sister laughed her head off when she saw them - but I think they're bloody great. Very 'me'. Love 'em!

Now all the pairs featured so far are actually here, in my possession, in my bedroom, with me now.

These next couple, are ones I'm still waiting on delivery of:

These are asos.. Don't even get me started on their sale!
These pumps make up part of my THIRD order from them this week. Wait till we get to the 'cosmetics' post of my recent purchases! I told you my shopping habits were getting more ridiculous by the day.

And I'm also waiting for these (& very looking forward to getting them):

These are basically perfect in my eyes. I love them. Which is why I had to have them, even though I'd just got those other grey boots.. Oh well. I will wear & love them both. Gorgeous.

These, as you can see, are Dorothy Perkins boots - but I've bought them brand new from good ol' eBay.

I think that concludes my new footwear post :)

I am actually going shopping tomorrow :/ But I seriously need to try & not buy anything. No, not anything, that'd be unrealistic.. Not buy much. I'm going shopping with my sister, as she's starting a new job on Monday, & she needs work wear, including shoes/bag/everything! So hopefully I'll manage to stay focused on that mission, rather than get distracted by things for me.. We'll see!

Right, that's me done. Hope you're all well & have good weekends :)

Take care,



  1. Yay shoes! I think I like the purple ones best. Thanks for the tip about the clothingattesco website, heading over there righ tnow... even though I shouldn't be shopping! :)

  2. jeez i thought i'd been bad recently!
    just joking, love all your new purchases especially the brogues and the sequin bows on the first pair are adorable x

  3. Haha you are a literal shopaholic! I love it!
    Hope you're okay, sorry to hear you've been signed off. Hope you feel better soon, and manage to get some rest in between shopping ;)
    Good luck with the Barry M stuff if you do try it!

  4. Oh I am the same with brouges... I have seen so many gorgeous pairs but when I them on I look like I have clown feet. I was the same about skinny jeans though and now I am totally in love with them.

  5. What a naughty girl you are! I love the purple ones most but they are all wonderful and at £5 a pair I'm not surprised you got carried away.
    Hope you start feeling better soon. xxx

  6. Those first 4 pairs of pumps are an absolute bargain, I really like the bow detailing too. Both pairs of grey boots look so snug and warm, perfect for winter.

    I think it’s natural to buy plenty of footwear over the Autumn/Winter months; after all there are so many choices. I really need to invest in a good pair of boots, but keep putting it off x

  7. shoe crazy! Loved the asos sale cant waitto pick my order up! xx

  8. love the shoes, its a shame many of the cheaper shoes are out of stock on desireclothing!

  9. Wow you have been busy and thats just the shoes! LOVE the brogues, gorgeous!
    Sorry to hear you are signed off work. Hope things work themselves out for you. hugs. x

  10. Pretty shoes! Love them:) Hope you can get back to work soon:)


  11. God I am NOT clicking on that Tesco link. You are a terrible influence on me and I can't afford to buy anything this month! I was seriously contemplating one of the couture pieces on there, just because it was in the sale, then I got a grip and turned the computer off.

    You've got some fab purchases there though! The brogues are ACE (try them with a floral frock and a cosy jumper/cardi and tights, they'll look tremendous). I really like the navy pumps in the second photo and the grey boots are lush!

  12. Happy birthday!!! You are NOT old!! x

  13. Shoes shoes shoes! Oh how I want them all, especially those brogues!

  14. Those fringed boots are ace! Sorry to hear you were signed off work but at least you have some gorgeous new shoes to make yourself feel better :)
