|patent heels : barratts*|
Sorry to be such a predictable bore, Becks.
Compliments fluster me. I can talk about most things until the cows come home. Not that I share my home with a cow. (Or anyone anymore, thank goodness - I like my space). So I can often find myself merrily conversing away with someone, and then they'll say something like "your hair looks nice" and I'll suddenly lose all train of thought.
I seem to have an inability to accept that anyone would be saying anything nice because they actually think it; if I'm complimented on something I'll usually just say "no, I don't" or whatever. I shrug most things off like that, despite knowing that it's much more polite to say "thank you", graciously, then to engage your complimenter in the conversational equivalent of an alligator-wrestling contest until they retract whatever it is they'd said.
I'd like to compliment Barratts on these shoes, though. (See what I did there?!) I ordered them with a voucher they'd given me in my goody bag at the NW Bloggers meet up, which was waaay back in February. I chose these along with another pair but hadn't worn this pair until now. They were £10 in the sale, and I think they are fab. I don't think this exact pair are still on the site, but these are similar..
I also decided that I'd post this outfit today, as when I wore it last week I was told I looked lovely in it, by the man in the sorting office. I didn't say anything.
