A small detour from the objective

Remember my search for ankle/calf grey boots? Well, I still haven’t found them…

In my hunt for the perfect grey boots to add to my collection I had a small detour and WHOOPS i purchased a pair of black peep toe ankle bots. They are gorgeous, high and super sexy. They did come in a grey but Asos had sold out of my size and the next best thing to soothe my urge for shoes was to grab them in black.

These are going to be extremely versatile boots as i can wear them casually with denim (like above) or dress them up on a night out. I really like how there is a platform on the ball of the foot as this makes really high heels so much easier to walk in and will definitely give me less of a chance on tripping over and falling face first. I love high heels but I need to learn how to walk in them more delicately. I cannot even begin to tell you how many times i have ended up face first in the concrete from heels from simply walking on flat ground. I feel like the only woman in the world who cannot manage to walk in heels with confidence. Tell me, is it just me? Or do you have a funny high heel story to share?

Cheap Thrills

A couple of months ago I contemplated a pair of leopard print gumboots which were going to put a dent in my pocket. I was unsure if I could spend over $100 on boots which weren’t exactly going to be worn often. But, it has certainly been raining more than usual lately so I was feeling like I needed them.

I took a late night trip with a friend to Kmart, in the hunt for cheap thrills. We like to buy clothes and accessories from Kmart in secret. It is a true secret gem. And on this late night trip i got that cheap thrill I was seeking with these super cute polka dot gumboots. I love them and when I sported them into work, I felt incredibly good about my bargain find as my colleagues gave me compliments on them. They only set me back $15! Who knew, a $15 pair of gumboots would bring me so much joy. I can’t wait for another rainy day to be forecasted to wear them again.

I love them. What cheap thrills have you gotten lately which have made you SO happy?

I’m Alive. And I Am Organised.

WOW! It has been 3 very long weeks since my last post. Naughty me for being M-I-A. I have been caught up in moving into a new place, I could barely focus on anything else – including sleep. The grunt of the move is over and on the Easter long weekend i spent 4 blissful hours organising my shoes into clear boxes. I feel somewhat de-cluttered. It is true what Oprah says, de-cluttering DOES make you feel like you are taking back control of your messy life. Take a look at my neat, organised shoes….

This was after i managed (painfully may i add) to cull 15 pairs of shoes. I now only have 65 pairs of shoes and sandals plus 5 pairs of Havaianas (thongs/flipflops which ever you prefer). The Havaianas don’t really count as shoes as they don’t take up much room and i like to have different colours to mix and match my casual outfits over the summer. However, 65 shoes were tough to squeeze into a small space and off i trotted to Ikea to get myself a Billy Bookcase with a funky door as extra storage for shoes I wear often. What do you think? Cute?

After my 4 hours of re-discovering shoes I love and shoes I needed to let go, I really felt I was missing a pair of grey heeled boots. I think ankle or calf length in a cowboy or studded style will be a fantastic addition to my collection. I searched for hours over the past few days but I just can’t find the right ones. Please help me! Any links, shop suggestions or photos are more than welcome. Help me hunt down the perfect pair of grey boots.
