27 (pairs of) Shoes!


So I hear Beyonce gave her sister Solange
a pair of shoes for every year of her life
as a
25th birthday present.

Now I'm not her biggest fan - largely to do with the effect she has on my husband when she appears on our TV screen - but I have to give it to her...what an awesome birthday present!

My Fish is great at buying me gifts, and he usually always gets it right, but my birthday is coming up at the end of this month so just in case he, or anyone else has any trouble thinking of what to get
me I decided to make a
shoes-most-wanted list
of my own...

So! In no particular order...

Bamboo and suede ballerina flats

Love a good pair of flats and the slight heel means my feet won't ache after hours of trawling round shops during the sales!

Miu Miu
Suede pumps

Pink was my favourite colour as a child but
in this soft suede, these pumps
are ladylike enough for me :)
Diane von Furstenberg
Ombré patent-leather and suede ankle boots

I loooove these boots! The two tone and peeptoe are gorgeous!
Jimmy Choo
Zephyr flat suede mocassins

These look soft enough to sink my feet into for a leisurely lunch with the in laws.
Quilted-leather ankle boots

I'm moving away from super high platforms but I'd make an exception for these any day!

Jimmy Choo
Cosmic suede pumps

Ok totally ignore what I just said. Every girl needs a pair of black suede pumps in her life!
Maison Martin Margiela
Wool-covered leather ankle boots

I'm not a fan of block heels but clever crafting means these have a soft shape which compliments the foot...(Look I just like it ok??!)
Deborah linen and leather shoes

Church's: Practical and yet stylish with it!
Cutout suede sandals

These are just sexy. Did I say I had a thing about suede?

Giambattista Valli
Metal-cuffed leather and twill sandals

These remind me of a similar pair my mum bought me from Calvin Klein when I was younger. Not usually my style but I like the look of metal against the leather

Flora raffia and leather ballerina flats

Yup, more flats. I do live in London you know, the Tube is an essential part of everyday life!
Maison Martin Margiela
Leather-sequined open-toe ankle boots

My days of 'raving' are long gone but if I ever feel like 'shaking a leg', these are the shoes I'd
pick to match my sequinned leotard with black tights. Move over Beyonce/Lady Gaga, there's a new girl in town!
Fiorentini & Baker
Elbo Eternity Fabula studded suede ankle boots

Sturdy, comfortable and cute. All at the same time!

Miu Miu
Woven leather brogues

Summer is here and so are these
hot-weather brogues. Yipee!

Emblem Wellington boots

If you live in the UK, you need a fab pair of wellies - festival-goer or not - and personally,
I'm bored of Hunter.

Christian Louboutin
Décolleté 100 pumps

In case you didn't already know, I love my Loubs and these nude pumps look perfect against my dark skin teamed with a pair of dark jeans. Dressing down should never be dressing dull!

Bow-back suede slingbacks

More suede...these are so cute. Simple but girly. Like :)
Giambattista Valli
Bow-embellished two-tone satin ballerina flats

These pretty satin pumps are perfect work attire and detract from my massive size 8 feet!

Charlotte Olympia
Tutti Frutti leather and suede flats

Life is serious enough without boring shoes. These tutti frutti pumps are fun and
will being
a smile to the
grumpy faces during my morning commute!

Vivienne Westwood
Pirate Patchwork patent-leather and nubuck brogues

Vivienne Westwood rocks! When I was younger I used to buy the same shoe in different colours and then wear one on each foot. Thanks to the great VW, with these
I don't have to!
Sunday braid-detailed leather boots
Was £415

Now £207.50

Slouchy leather boots worn with summery dress in preparation for a wet summer: check!

Isabel Marant
Gava cotton-raffia and leather pumps

Great combination of materials here! The cuffs at the top make the shoe - LOVE.
Giuseppe Zanotti
Python-effect brushed-leather ballerina flats

Ok look, I'm a Christian so I have a thing about snakes. But any pythons used in the making of these shoes are dead so I'm totally cool with these!

Leather ballerina flats

Soft, pink leather pumps. What's not to like? :)

Ankle-strap satin pumps
Was £475

Now £237.50

Again, not a fan of block heels but these have a generally soft shape and I like the combination of white hard heel and smooth black satin.
Jil Sander
Two-tone leather brogues
Was £440

Now £308

Haven't tried these so not sure how they would look on but I want them anyway!

Christian Louboutin
Chaotic 100 leather-trimmed canvas ankle boots
Was £535

Now £321

What better way to end my Collection 27 than with another pair of Louboutins! Leather trimmed canvas boots with peeptoe....AND they're on sale!
You can find all these shoes at Net-A-Porter and I wear a UK size 8...oh and just one more for luck! :D

Anna Peep Toe Sandals (Coral)
Was £165 Now £135
@John Lewis
@House of Fraser

absolutely stunning
and...they're on SALE!

Happy Birthday to

    4. Is it bad that I keep seeing other shoes that I want? You'd think 27 pairs would be enough right?!

    5. I know right? I feel a bit gutted now that I won't actually get them 🙁 lol
