Day Two

Tuesday, 14 August 2012


Day two and I'm already flagging!  I don't know how you daily bloggers do it.  I didn't have a problem with choosing a shiny, new, unworn thing to feature today but my general levels of energy are appalling, so it was hauling together the rest of the outfit that was the problem.  I'd much rather have worn my pj's to work today.  Ah, if only that was allowed.

Anyway, today's outfit was therefore fairly simple but the shoes (the new thing) are somewhat on the crazy side so that's probably for the best.

Behold the shoes!  I am not a cherubic sort of girl but I lost my heart to this pair when I saw them on ebay.  Even the daft height of the heel wasn't enough to put me off.  They remind me of ridiculous Rococo-style decoration and they're just fun.  I don't care if everyone else hates them (and fess up, cos I know some of you will!)

  1. Lovely skirt. I must confess I wasn't drawn to the shoes but they do look nice on!

  2. Lovely! I do like the shoes but I think the best bit is the detail on the sole - it's adorable!

  3. I'll confess, I'm not sure on the shoes. Not because they're awful but because they're satin & I'd kill them in about oooh 10 seconds. I like the heel height :-)

  4. Alex you could link up to EBEW:Monochromatic with this outfit http://www.everybodyeverywear.com/
    I'm not in love with the shoes if I'm honest but mainly because of the dinky heel, the design is rather fun.x

  5. I'm so glad IC started doing this height... I don't like their total flats, but their usual heels were too high for work. I have a black 'pinstripe' style with the same heel.

  6. I'm not sure about the cherubs but the rest of the design is so beautiful - those roses! I'm off to scour ebay for IC :)

  8. The shoes are a work of art. I think I'd put them in a display case!

  11. I can't work out if I love or hate the shoes.... They're so.... ummm that I think I like them?

    Loving you doing a daily outfit post, yesterday's was lovely (the cardigan *swoons*) and super glad it seems you had aFAB time at the Olympics.

  12. Ooh I kinda love these shoes, and I'm not usually an Irregular Choice fan! Right enough the heel is a bit dumb, but I think it suits the style... Love your skirt in last post too, pretty! :)

  13. Those shoes are crazy! In a good way. I love wearing shoes that are a little different, would prefer a higher heel though I must admit.
