A while ago I posted a “files of new” post about purchasing these shoes and here is an outfit I wore with them. The shoes in question are the “Buns’n’roses” oxfords from Iron Fist. I love these shoes, I think they are so cute! I went a bit kitsch while styling them.

Files of new: shoes
Today I want to share with you two new pairs of shoes, the most recent additions to my shoe collection.
The first pair are these Reebok Skyscape Harmony slip-on trainers that are the most comfortable pair of shoes that I own. They may not be the most beautiful pair I have but they make up for it by being so good to my feet. M bought them for me in preparation for our July holiday (there is always so much walking on our holidays and my feet need all the help they can get. I am in between sizes and have a very high arch so finding comfortable walking shoes for me isn’t the easiest thing.) I’ve already worn them a couple of times and have one outfit post to show you in a future post.
The next pair is a lot more fun.
Last Tuesday was a state holiday and M and I went on a little outing. Instead of staying home we went to Prague’s city center and had quite a nice trip. Our adventure started in good form – with lunch at a place called At the Blind Cat. We had delicious crepes (that is their specialty), pictured below is the one I had (it was with warm raspberries and vanilla ice cream and whipped cream, yum) – M had a salty crepe (I’ve never had one before and was surprised that the dough was different). We also had soup (mine was tomato, yum) and we shared an additional crepe for desert (with blueberries and cream) – so suffice to say we were stuffed (I could hardly move).
The Devil’s in the Details
Friday night M and I went to have drinks and then to a club with some friends. I chose my outfit accordingly – I wanted to be comfortable enough to be able to dance and I also needed to be wearing flats as I knew we would be going from place to place and I didn’t want to be staggering on my heels in Prague city center aka cobble stone land. My absolute favorite thing about this outfit are the shoes:
Leopard Print Flats
So, leopard print flats are one of my favorite types of flat shoes. I think they can take an outfit further than regular black flats, which I otherwise would constantly be wearing. The shoes pictured above are one of my favorites. They are by Blink and I love the cutesy bow and mouse face on the toe of the shoes – just adorable. You’ve seen them on this blog before:
Leopard Print Heels
Yesterday’s shoe purchase post got me thinking about leopard print shoes. Leo print is one of my all-time favorites on shoes. It is almost a “neutral” in my book. I counted that I have 29 pairs of leopard print shoes in my current collection. Anyways, I thought it would be nice to do a sort of tribute to/flashback of my leopard print shoes.
Let’s start with one of my favorites:
These shoes are from Miss Selfridge and I got them in 2011 when we were on vacation in London (I bought 14 pairs of shoes on that trip, crazy.) I’ll be honest and say they aren’t the most comfortable shoes in the world, but they are still amazing.
Another look from February and this one was particularly a favorite, because I loved my entire outfit: the jacket is from Zara Woman (it totally reminds me of Project Runway creations, well, the good ones anyway) is super quirky and thus I totally love it; the dress (also Zara Woman) is super short so that also seems to work for me haha. The quilted chain detail bag (Mango) is one of my favorites and currently I am waiting on an eBay purchase of this same bag, yup, I love it so much I repurchased it. But you know me and it’s always about the shoes. The shoes, my goodness, the shoes. I had wanted these Iron Fist Leopard print “Lounge Days” wedge shoes for ages and then they were sold out and I thought I’d never have them but luckily my Iron Fist store restocked them (I’m hoping the same thing will happen with the “Buns’n’Roses” shoes I’m currently lusting after) and I actually managed to buy these in the sales!
But how about my favorite way to wear a trench? And also the way I wear it the most? Well, that’s simple really – it’s wearing it with a dress (or skirt) that has a shorter hem line than the trench coat. It’s provocative and sexy. It’s a bit naughty (especially if people can’t tell if you’re wearing something underneath or not).
I mentioned in one of my recent posts that I’ve bought some earrings and though I do love the ones I bought, I just had to share two pairs that I am head over heels in love with and also am seriously lusting after. They aren’t cheap so this will be just a platonic love affair, e.g. why this is only a wishlist and not a things I bought post. Okay, so the first pair is a lovely pair of mismatched earrings. I first saw them over on the Pixiwoo Madness vlog and fell in love with them straight away. One earring is a pretty tree and the second is a bird and a bird cage. I did track it down (the link supplied by Sam wasn’t working) here but $72.00 is a bit much for me to spend on a pair of earrings. The second pair…
It’s going to be a short post today as I am in a bit of a hurry. Just a quick outfit post featuring a new pair of shoes that I bought last week. The outfit is from Tuesday, I wore it to work and I quite liked how it looked. Let’s start with the shoes…
