sunday shoes 022..


001: Poetic Licence 'Petal Pusher'
002: Irregular Choice 'Can't Touch This'
003: Shelly's 'Belle' wedges

This week's new additions to the shoe collection were the result of some rather odd changes which seem to be happening to the stock levels on the Spartoo site as they move their warehouse over to the UK from France. It's meant that instead of the 700+ brands they had, they're currently down to 120ish, but is also means that all of a sudden they have some pairs on there which went had been shown to have gone out of stock months ago. So I wasted little time in snapping these three pairs up.

001: Poetic Licence are the sister brand of Irregular Choice, and I have to admit, I'm not a huge fan of the majority of their pairs. The main reason for this is that their heel height tends to be a lot shorter and usually too short for my liking. I do have a couple of pairs of quite old styles, mainly shoe boots which I plan to dig out when the weather gets a little colder, but when I saw these wedges I couldn't resist them. I think I was mostly drawn to the flowers - they remind me of a little raffia handbag with flowers on it, which I had when I was little and used to play dressing up with. I like the contrast, even though they are both neutral colours, between the wedge heel and the upper. I think these might have to wait for the sun to make a reappearance.

002: I know what you're thinking. ANOTHER pair of Can't Touch This? Another boring floral pair? Well, that's what I'd thought when I first saw them. But upon a closer look, what you think is just floral print is in fact....floral and PANDA print. Once I'd realised this, just how could I resist them? I already know I love the style, and the green buckle is the perfect finishing touch, I think. Plus, pandas!

003: These wedges were a pair I'd had halfheartedly saved in my favourites list for a while, until they sold out and I realised how much I'd actually liked them. I was therefore really glad to see them back on the site again (I assume this restock business is down to the UK returns warehouse not tying up with the stock levels on the French site or something. These were even more pretty than I'd anticipated when they arrived; love the shaped front.

What do you think of this week's choices?


  1. Awww I love how the pandas are hiding away between the flowers. I am also in love with those shelly wedges xx

  2. oh my god, absolutely amazing- love the irregular choice ones! xx

  3. I didn't notice the pandas on the second pair until I read it, but they're definitely my favourite pair here. They're so beautiful! And pandas make everything even better. I saw a cute pair of panda ballerina pump slippers in Next today... I almost bought them, but they didn't have my size. They have them online, though, and they're so cute!

  4. Panda shoes???? Wild and so cute too!
    Particularly like the Poetic Licence pair.
