Shoe Challenge Day 7

outfit: on this morning i had one of those horrible mornings where you try on several outfits and end up feeling awful in all of them - i feel really fat this week and therefore am not liking the look of anything :( eventually i settled on a dorothy perkins dress which i have had for years, and always like when i wear it..i think it was an ebay purchase, but it's so long ago i can't really remember..

shoes: these pair of raspberry glitter heels were a sale purchase from office a long while ago, and i always forget about them..having decided on the dress first, i had a route through all of the shoe boxes stacked on my wardrobes for some heels in a colour which would pick out the pattern  on the dress, and i figured this pink would do rather nicely..these have a lovely bow and mary jane strap on them which i like, but i was never that much of a fan of the chunky heel, usually i would go for something  a lot more narrow, but i think there are a lot of shoes in the shops at the moment with big chunky heels, so maybe this is their time to shine....?

general ramblings: this week seems to be getting more and more crazy as the days go on! i am running out of time to get things sorted for my guides holiday next week, and don't feel as though i'm anywhere near organised for it yet ! in addition to that i have a LOT of sewing commissions backing up, and various projects which i need to get finished - i am just not finding i have time for anything at the moment..one of them could really do with being done by tomorrow, and as yet it's not even cut out.. argh! let alone the things i want to make for myself..
also i feel like i'm failing with the blog a little bit, i have a huuge list of htings i want to post about, and then never seem to have any time to get them written etc..

  1. I LOVE these shoes, I prefer chunky heels as I find them easier to walk in but sometimes an outfit needs something more elegant. I love these with this dress though, absolutely gorgeous!
