October is my favourite month of the year – the start of autumn, time for cosy coats, toffee apples, crunchy leaves, Halloween, and, of course, my birthday! This year, I’ve been looking at loads of cool items on the market for celebrating Halloween (as it’s on a Saturday again, whoooooo). I found two gorgeous pairs of spider-inspired shoes – can you guess which ones cost £575 and which cost £45?
You learn something new every day. I didn’t know this, but there are degrees of brogueness…
This style is called the full brogue with wingtips, if you want to be all technical about it… I love brogues and have this style in navy from French Sole (available in black here), and in nude from Dune (available in various colours here). There’s just something really awesome about a nice pair of brogues!
What about you? Do you like to go full brogue?
It’s fast approaching my favourite season of the year: autumn! Although we’re still deep in summer, the recent thunderstorms here have turned my mind to wet-weather footgear, and first on my shopping list for the new season is definitely ankle boots!
At the end of 2013, I got a little bit obsessed by Mulberry’s pointed signature ballerinas. As usual, I waited for a sales bargain, but somehow I completely missed the start of the sale and by the time I got my act together, they had sold out in my size. Not even Mulberry’s helpful customer service department could track any down (there were a pair at Heathrow, apparently! Hmm!). So, I purchased the gorgeous high heeled versions (which I love!) – but I live in flats, so my wistful lusting wasn’t sated… Until I saw a mention of the shoes in the Mulberry section of Purseblog’s forum, that is! Turns out, Kafka.co.uk had some in stock… Not only that, but they were at sale prices. Not only that, but they were in my size. Not only that, but they had both pairs I was hankering after! NOT ONLY THAT, but there was a 10% off code as well! My goodness…
After I posted a pic of my growing collection of pointed flats, I had quite a few people asking me where they were from, so I put together a Polyvore collection of a few examples at different budgets. A couple of the items aren’t the same as the ones in my picture, as they were last season’s, but hopefully I managed to find some interesting alternatives!
