hide the truth from my eyes..


i really love this pair of shoes! i couldn't wait to wear them, and then, inpspired (or not) by a few early morning appointments last week, i decided that i could team them up with my river island sale-buy body, and the forever21 skirt..
the body is nice, i like the stripes, but it felt a bit of an odd cut, and made me a little self-conscious which was not great considering i didn't really love the skirt that much either - i felt like i was having to wear it a little too high up, and therefore that it was too short, and i looked too fat :(




so i tried to focus on the shoes, which managed to brighten up the rest of the outfit - they are super comfortable, and i love the print, the fact that even though there is a peep-toe front, the fabulous rosette detail on the front means it's not too crazy, and the fact that they were totally fine to spend a whole day at a breakfast meeting, then the office, then a tea out with a friend - i didn't have to take them off at all!

  1. FABULOUS SHOES!

    Thats a shame you didn't feel comfortable in the outfit. I actually think you look great in it. Nips in your waist and shows your curves.

  2. Gorgeous shoes, Char! Very envious.
    That skirt's really sweet on you. I think a plain high-necked top may work well then all the attention is on the bow detail at your waist. xxx

  6. You look fab, not fat at all! I think we are so used to seeing very tiny girls that anything else looks fat. I love the shoes x

  9. I was eyeing up that very pair online yesterday! (assuming they're from Schuh that is...)

    I think the skirt is a really great shape on you. Don't feel uncomfortable in it - it looks lovely!

  10. I actually think the outfit looks good on you - it really emphasises your waist. And the shoes are so much nicer on than I thought they might be.
