I'm blaming the weather for my utter lack of enthusiasm for dressing right now - how dull and pants is it and is anyone else bored and lacking motivation to put anything else on other than the trusty jeans and jumper combo? I even called halt to a shopping trip to Westfield as after 3 hours there was nothing I liked nor fancied, nothing was 'doing it for me'. Ok so maybe the children weren't helping my shopping mojo but that aside I did feel at a loss with what's out there right now. So I did what I thought was best, came home and did three online orders.......Gap, J Crew and Zara. All free delivery and returns so watch this space, I may feel inspired sometime soon. Note to self, this however is my last random online ordering for a while (purely to get my mojo back...). Back to shopping with my trusted list of 'needs' based on what is missing. Shopping list coming soon.
On a different note, I have been keeping an eye out in the footwear departments of late. A client I am working with was after some new pumps and I found her these from Zara. She loves them and says they are so comfortable. Ideally these were for her boyfriend styled jeans but I can see them working equally as well with a big turn up on a more fitted pair.
I saw these on The Outnet last week, but by the time I came to check out they had sold out. They were half price, £110 down to £55 by Michael Kors and looked fairly narrow from the images. You snooze you loose! What a price as well.
One of the only shops that had some items I loved at Westfield was Whistles. I tried on a few pairs of shoes but felt they looked like boats on me. I also thought the price tag was a bit steep on the skater style but none the less, they had a nice selection.
So over to you. Have you brought into the skater trend? Any narrow ones you recommend that don't appear clumpy? Or do you think it is it too short a trend for you to invest?
