Worth Splurging Poetic Licence Summer Bloom

This weeks splurge is colourful, girlie and fun.  I spotted these in Endless on sale, down from $129 to $100.50. The great news is that Endless provide free international shipping for orders over $100, yipee. Poetic Licence are known for their quirky designs and these heels don’t let them down in any way. They are flirty and Summery and gorgeous. They are available in different colours and the prices range from $70.95 – $107.20. My favourite are the pink…..surprise surprise. They are constructed from dyed patent leather with a...

Bargain Of The Week Albany Patent Platform Bow

It’s bargain time, this weeks find comes from a little online store I came across while browsing other shoe sites. I think these are super cute, I love the blush colour and the little bow on the vamp. I don’t normally go for chunky heels but I think it goes well with these due to the muted colours. The wedge and heel have a beige suede look and the upper is a faux patent leather. The insole is a metallic silver…I love it.   The heel height is 5.5″...

Top Tip: Heel Condoms

Ok I bet you are all reading the title of this post and thinking that I’ve actually lost the plot completely but I can assure you that I am of sound mind….well sort of. The images I had in my head were pretty scary but when I clicked on the site I was pleasantly surprised. The name aside these little devices are brilliant. Simply pop them on over the heels of a pair of shoes you already own and hey presto; they are instantly transformed! There are plenty of...

Worth Splurging River Island blue print canvas wedges

I’ve been gazing at these wedges for a few weeks now. I’ve been hesitant in featuring them as they don’t really fit in the splurge category so we’ll just call it a mini splurge. That way you don’t feel half as guilty if you get them….it’s only mini I know wedges aren’t to everyone’s taste but personally I love them, team them with a floral print and I’m completely won over. They are available from River Island for £69.99. They only have a few sizes left so get cracking...

Shoe Showcase New Look Pewter Gladiator

Happy Friday everyone It’s shoe showcase time and up this week are my pewter gladiator sandals from New Look. My Shoemammy picked a pair of these up for my sister and me last Summer in the sale (she’s great at spotting bargains). I threw this combination together yesterday evening after work. I was feeling inspired by the beautiful sunshine and took the opportunity to play dress up. Admittedly I’ve only worn these sandals a handful of times since I got them but they are completely deserving of a feature....

Bargain Of The Week Raffia Jewelled Neutral Ballerinas

Yeay it’s bargain time. I found these babies in Next for £23. A fab little flat perfect for Summer. They feature a rubber sole and a raffia upper with a lovely jewelled detailing and bow on the front.   They would be fab with a white Summer dress and a sun hat, great for holidays. They’d also be perfect with skinny jeans and a tee for a casual look. I love embellished shoes and I think Next really got it right with these flats and at a reasonable price...

Worth Splurging Knit Layered Court Shoe

It’s Shoe Splurge time and I think you’ll be pleased to know that I didn’t go completely overboard on the budget this week. I spotted these camel court shoes in Zara for €89.95…not bad for a splurge. These heels have an elegant shape and are beautifully designed with over lapping strips of leather. The leather is overlapped in such a way that it gives off a slightly tribal vibe….but that could just be me. Camel is one of those great colours that looks great on any skin tone from...

Celebrity Shoes Jessica Simpson in Alexander McQueen Tan 3D Flower Wedges

Jessica Simpson was spotted in New York City out with her fiancé Eric Johnson on Friday 3rd June 2011 in these tan McQueen wedges. She teamed them with a simple white tshirt, cream blazer, denim shorts and a cute camel and red leather Fendi bag. Some of Alexander McQueen’s designs really make me sit up and grab my attention. These wedges however don’t really inspire me, I like the floral detail on the heel but that’s about it. I just think they’re a little chunky and awkward looking. Featuring...

Bargain Of The Week Jelly Flower Peep toe

Jelly shoes seem to be everywhere this season so I made it my mission this week to find a great pair of jelly shoes at a bargain price. I don’t think I could have done better than these Jelly Flower Peep toe sandals which I found in Heatons for €3.65…three euro sixty five cent. That’s less than a sandwich at a deli counter. Constructed entirely from rubber and featuring a cute sling back sandal with a peep toe and corsage on the vamp. I’m not sure about the come...

Celebrity Shoes Cheryl Cole in Marc Jacobs Polka Dot Wedges

Cheryl Cole wore these Marc Jacob polka dot t-bar wedges at the X-Factor auditions in California in Chicago on 19th May 2011. Although I do love Cheryl (I have a bit of a girl crush on her), I think she went a little polka dot crazy by teaming them with a cream and black polka dot dress. I do love both the wedges and the dress but combining the two is a bit much for me. If she swapped the dress for a plain style it would have been...
