It's All About The Footwear!

I'm just a little bit bored with clothes at the moment.  It happens to me at this time of year, I just want a cozy jumper and jeans (and my thermal vest of course) and be done with it all.  That being said, shoes are still floating my boat quite a bit and I do have a Christmas party coming up.  On the flip side, there really is only so many times a fancy pair of shoes can be worn and I do have a few - I know, I too have just fallen off the chair at that statement.  I'm reaching for the chocolate and G&T to bring me round, don't worry.  But really, how gorgeous are these from River Island?  Available in black as well and I don't think £65 is an unreasonable price tag.  I was a little slow on the uptake and missed out on the Grazia code of 25% off so I haven't purchased them - yet!  Oh and did I mention they are suede - my all time favourite for shoes!

River Island £65
While we are on the suede front, I may as well continue.  My obsession with suede footwear is perhaps getting worse.  I was in London last week for some press days.  Boden as always, didn't disappoint.  The only thing you have to bear in mind is that this is what is to come, they aren't yet available as this is their Spring/Summer drop.

I have their Alice flats which are super, these look like a updated version complete with some great studding detail
Tassels are still in for next season
Just throwing these in there as they were so stunning and stood out a mile.  They are by Giuseppe Zanotti, a truly premium brand.  These definitely had the 'wow' factor going on.

And yes - they were suede too!
Back down to earth with some every day footwear that also offers something a little different to the norm.  You may have heard off the brand Minnetonka and if not, then you'll probably have seen a certain Miss Moss wearing a pair of hers.  Flat, suede, fringing, they pretty much tick all the boxes. They have gone straight on my wish list after seeing a collection in the flesh.


Finishing with a boot I've got my eye on.  I'm not a huge Ugg wearer anymore, I have 4 pairs, all pretty old now but I find them very heavy on the end of my little legs.  My favourite are the short pair but I mainly wear these for ease when I go to Yoga.  Office sent me an email introducing their exclusive Ugg Petra boot and I was immediately transfixed.  They are in a nubuck leather so won't mark as easily as suede Ugg's but still have that sheepskin lining.  On top of that they are short, which I love with skinny jeans.  I'm yet to see these in the flesh and try them on but they may go on my sale shopping list!

  1. Ooh, I like those Uhgs too! Mine only come out on the coldest days, but those are a bit different aren't they? I love the Minnetonka's too, I always think Nicole Richie looks fabulous in hers, but I do think you need to be petite like you to wear them - not for me sadly, but at least I can spend the money I save on something else! ;-D

  3. Oh my....plenty of shoe porn here Natalie! I love the red River Island ones....though I doubt I'll end going anywhere glam enough to wear them! :0(

    However I am totally stuck as to what to ask for for Christmas and I adore those Uggs! If we get the freezing cold winter we have been forecast this will be just the thing! I may hang on until Black Friday to see if I can get a great deal! xx

  6. Now I'm a complete Ugg newbie, never ever worn them but I'm coming around. Those Ugg Petra boots are great and not too scary a price tag
