River Island Haul

River Island usually isn't one of my go to shops, as it can be a bit "Blingy" for me. They seem to not know when to stop with the diamonds and the glitter, especially on jeans.
However walking round town I noticed they had started their sale, and even better the store was empty. Time to shop without crazy sale people, brilliant. It would be wrong not to go in.. I managed to bag all the above shoes for a steal..

Starting clock wise...
Brown Wooden Platform Clog reduced from £44.99 to £10.
I wear my clogs with everything really, leggings, cropped jeans, cute summer dresses.

Black Platform Court Shoe reduced from £59.99 to £30.
I see the platform black court shoe like a LBD, unable to live without and supper girly. Again really you can wear with anything; it’s a 24 hour piece. Daytime I would wear with a pair of skinnies, a white baggy T and blazer, super sexy casual. 

Cutwork pink detailed brogue reduced from £24.99 to £10.
I love my brogues with my turn up jeans, a baggy vest, and a saggy blazer.  

Black Chain Sandal reduced from £29.99 to £10.
Sandals basically another staple, I wear with leggings, shorts, jeans.

All in all £60 for four pairs of beautiful shoes.

The Nude Shoe Effect

First of all one of my great passions is shoes.. has been a long love affair.

One of my favourite styles is nude.. So much so I have about 11 pairs (if you want to see I’ll take a picture :0p ).. You would think more that 2 pairs is enough in one colour yet I still keep buying. The reasons being is they go with everything in all seasons and they lengthen my legs (which is always a bonus for me). Recently Kate Middleton was seen wearing a pair of nude Barrats to the races and they re-appeared alot on her tour of Canada showing how versatile a pair of nude shoes can be. 

The images show my latest addition to my nude collection. A pair of court shoe sling backs by Kurt Geiger, style Danielle. I just love the mixture of textures, the glittery heels, the fabric material shoe and the leather platform sole, just so glamorous and different! Even better they were reduced from £75 to £45! Bargain! Tip: Outlets are brilliant for finding steals like these as sometimes they stock this season trends at a reduced prices!
