Shoes of dreams...

I read Jeffery Eugenide's The Virgin Suicides when I was fourteen. I was absolutely in love with the cover photo and searched everywhere for brown shoes like those. I think I managed to find a sort of similar pair of rip off kickers that slightly resembled the ones on the cover but they were really not that pretty.

. .

So when I saw these shoes on Carrie's blog wishwishwish I fell in love right away. I'm on a totally strict budget though which means very little spending for me and these were really way out of my budget. Clearly I am ridiculously spoiled because they arrived on my doorstep this morning bought for me by my love. I feel so spoiled! They are ridiculously beautiful and the leather smells amazing.

It's really windy today, not exactly skirt weather unfortunately! Do you like the little owl? I went into Exhibit, a shop I would never usually go into, with my Sister and found it for just £3.

My sister usually takes my outfit photos for me but she doesn't get home from school until it is almost dark now, and I have lost the attatchment for my tripod so please excuse the photos if they are a bit scruffy.

If you haven't already please enter my giveaway! I will draw the winners one week from today, Tuesday 26th October.
