If 2011 was all about bags (and here and here and here!), this year most certainly continues with the accessories overhaul. I have just got to sort it all out – next – SHOES! OK, an obssession with shoes
usually always goes with an obssession with bags and I am no exception. I’ve become quite bored with my footwear and need to update my choices – not much because then it wouldn’t be me anymore, just enough.
I’ve been after a beige pair of booties all last year with a more comfortable heel than the pair I already have seen here. I snapped these up in the sale recently. Kurt Geiger is one of the few places where I can still find my size. I used to shop at Bally all the time when they were on the High Street but in the years while I was having my babies, they left and became terribly expensive, I mean the same price bracket as Jimmy Choo and Louboutin. Another High Street brand, Pied A Terre simply stopped making my size so my shoe life became harder. I can buy flats from kids shops but, strictly speaking, they don’t even suit my feet!
Besides the reduced availability, it seems more shoes are now Made in Spain – call me old fashion, a snob, what you will but I am used to having Made in Italy at the bottom of my feet! From what I have seen so far, there is a big difference in the quality of make. But there you go, I just have to get over that and my aim for this year is to save up for these:
UPDATED TO ADD: THE SAME STYLE IN PYTHON – OMG I JUST HAVE TO HAVE THESE!In the meantime, I started to go through my shoe collection and re-discovered these that I am determined to wear more of this year:
The metallic bronze heels by Kurt Geiger are from 2000 and are Made in Spain but the quality is very good. I already know I have too many sandals, because I like to change shoes very often in the Spring and Summer, so will try to get a better balance for my needs now.
