Sandals Research (yes, you read that right!)


I'm struggling to keep to my shopping list this month, I hold my hands up.  Partly because there are still some little sales going on and partly because I hate having to buy something specific, I feel compelled to get it right!  Not to mention the need for some sparkly sandals for a beach wedding next month that I won't be able to wear again for about 6 months.  I have been doing a little research but I haven't purchased, yet.  So here goes, baring in mind the dress above;

My favourite so far and only because there is the subtle hint of animal print involved!  I don't think they would work that well but I love them!
Steve Madden at House of Fraser £34 (was £69)

I like the simplicity of these but I think they are bordering on too simple.
Ravel at House of Fraser £30 (was £40)

Probably the best in terms of ticking boxes so far; leather, bling, sandal, not too pricey.

New Look £27.99
No bling but I actually have a black sandal hole in my wardrobe so these could possibly kill two birds so to speak.  There is black in the dress and a kind of flower/abstract print so they aren't a million miles off.

Office £26 (was £40)
I am due a trip to Bicester Village this week so I am holding off until I've been there.  Failing that, I think I will just have to order a few pairs as I did with the dress and take it from there.  The shopping list this month feels like no fun at all!  (Hence I've just got majorly side tracked over at Zara and added some bits to my basket, to check out or not to check out.....).

  3. I deffo think you will have to try a few pairs with the dress as the pattern may make it quite difficult to match up. Have you looked at Moda In Pelle? I think they have some codes floating about, if you can't find one message me as I know I've had an email and find them really good for sparkly sandals and their sales are normally pretty good x

  4. I really like the Ravel sandals, but I do like keeping things simple! I know what you mean about having to focus on one thing and get it right, it's much more fun to just see something you like and buy it xx

    1. I am a complete sucker for that! But I do love putting outfits together so I don't mind, it just isn't the most logical way of buying that's all! x

  6. Be quick, they might be replaced with boots and sensible winter shoes. I'd hate to see you on a beach in black patent brogues x
