Monday to Wednesday Shoes

Hi again,

When was I last here?  Life has been a whirlwind.  I think you’re meant to start winding down as you approach your leaving date at work but I’ve been working like a beast in the run up to leaving my job to try and get everything done and leave the firm and my clients with good memories.

As my last week is now here after three months I have decided to have a little shoe parade in the office and wear some of my more fancy shoes.

This is what I’ve worn so far this week.

Left to right you have Shoes of Prey, KG and Ruby Shoo.

I love these Shoes of Prey and I’m almost certain that no one will have an identical pair given that you get to hand pick all of the colours, etc.P1000941
My only issue with these shoes is that I don’t think the cross straps are quite in the right place as I have an issue with my little toe!
P1000942 P1000943
I seem to spend the whole time trying to fiddle with the straps and tuck it in.  I think that’s the reason I don’t wear them all that often as nothing looks uglier than toes sticking out all over the place!

Tuesday I wore the pink KG heels on the left, these must be about 8 to 10 years old.  It goes to prove that shoes can last a very long time if you look after them well.  That means that today’s shoes were the Roby Shoo’s on the right.  I found these on TK Maxx and couldn’t decide whether or not to buy them (https://emmaonshoes.wordpress.com/2016/05/12/screen-shopping-for-shoes/)
They are really lovely but they have a zip up the back and the back of the heel comes quite high up the ankle.  They can rub your ankles raw but I have discovered Compeed Blister plasters and they saved my ankle today from being skinned.P1000944

All I need to do now is decide what I’m going to wear on Thursday and Friday!

It’s been more than six years since I last changed jobs so it’s going to be a wrench as I’ve made some good friends but you sometimes have to try following your dreams and see where life takes you!

Kurt Geiger Sale

Watch out!!  There’s a Kurt Geiger sale on!!

Kurt Geiger make some of my very favourite shoes.  If I had unlimited funds I would own millions of pairs of Kurt’s because they are just so gorgeous!

I’ve had a little browse at the website and there are some stunners available but I’ve picked two that I’d love to own…

These beautiful shoes are called Jellia.  They have leather uppers and their neutral tones mean that they would go with pretty much anything!

I also adore these.  Their name is brilliant to start with – Howrude – I love that name!

These only seem to be available now in a size 3 (too small for me) but if you’re lucky enough to have diddy feet then snap them up – they’re gorgeous.

Have you found any amazing sales recently?  If so I’d love to hear about them.

 

 

No Heel High Heels

Today’s heels are barely able to be called ‘high heels’.  They may be high but they don’t actually have heels.

I was intrigued by this style of shoe when they first came to market about three, or so, years ago.  It took me a while to get a pair but these were an impulse buy – it was my birthday, we were in the Kurt Geiger outlet shop, they were sitting there looking all shiny and pretty…P1000430 P1000432
I wasn’t sure so I decided to try them on.  To look at them they look bizarre, to wear them they feel like completely normal shoes.  The only time you have to watch your footing is on stairs as you don’t have quite the ground coverage that you might expect!

I love the colour of these (rose gold, in case the picture is distorted).  They are easy to wear, feminine and comfortable.  They also attract a few double takes and comments of ‘how do you walk in those?’ (a common question I’m asked!)

Amazon have got some pretty court style heel less shoes at the moment:-

I would definitely give these a try.  There are also some available on eBay from both shops and individuals.

If you’re concerned about being able to walk in them I wouldn’t worry about that.  If you can walk in heels then you will probably be ok in these.  Do what I do; clump around in them in the house to get a good feel for them!  My husband always looks suspiciously at my feet when I’m making a ‘shoe noise’ in the house and not wearing my normal flip flop slippers!  At least I don’t try and hide my purchases!

Do you remember I fell in love with a pair of Ruby Shoos from TK Maxx (https://emmaonshoes.wordpress.com/2016/05/12/screen-shopping-for-shoes/) I must admit that I did buy them in the end.  I’ll fill you in soon!

P.S. I have just come back from a cruise (first one and haven’t have a holiday for seven years so it was well deserved) and wore these a couple of times.  They are really good when it’s rough, nice and stable.  Also they turn a lot of heads, get a lot of double takes and you can hear people “whispering” about them!  I will tell you more about the 13 pairs of shoes I took and the beautiful pairs I purchased from Portugal.
