It's been a while since I've popped to Bicester Village so I had a rare day off with both my girls now in school and had a good browse. I knew French Sole had 'moved in' and the range they had to offer didn't disappoint. I know there are so many other flat style shoes about that are a lot more on trend however for me, the classic ballerina stye works and if it ain't broke.......
Their styles do vary, some show a lot of toe cleavage which isn't for me but I found the above in my sizes, £80 for the metallic and £60 for the animal. I have the animal already but it's a darker base coloured fur and a red trim. I love them and they have worn so well being at least 5 years old. It was a tough call as I loved the metallic however after a few wears I felt the leather would show my toe mark more (which hasn't happened on my current fur ones).
Not being one to rush into a decision I had them both held then went back at the end and settled on the animal print pair. As you can see above, my current ones have loosened up a lot. They do come up small so I go up a size in them and they are still tight. I got a further 10% off with my VIP card (AA customers - make sure you use this additional offer as it's not known that well!) so at £54 I thought they were a bargain. They RRP at £135.

Bag; Prada (Bicester Village)
I wore them the very next day and although they pinched a little, I know they will loosen up. I am so pleased with them, I love how a little animal print can just add a touch of glam to an outfit. The sun shone so I wore them with one of my favourite purchases this year, my Topshop pinafore dress.
