I wasn’t planning on doing a post today, I was meant to be focusing solely on revision – but I literally cannot help myself. This is just going to be a quick post to show you the new huge beauties that came in the post this morning: Missguided Darby Platform Boots i.e. ‘The Boots That Will Threaten Boyfriends’ Manhoods’. When I first spotted these on the gorgeous Sara Luxe‘s site from one of her outfit posts, I mistook them for Jeffrey Campbell Litas, then looked closer and noticed the difference – which perhaps controversially, I completely prefer to most JC shoes. The wooden heel is just too Ikea for me.
After checking where they were from, and discovering they were only £36ish with free Next Day P&P from Missguided.co.uk, I had to have them. And am I glad I ordered them: they’ve snapped back to Out of Stock again now – but you can sign up to get notified of when they’re back in! P.s. You’re going to get some crazy looks if you walk around town during the day in these, people must think I’m absolutely mental but they are bizarrely really comfortable, though I did nearly go over when I started walking and texting: curse you Lancaster cobbles.
Today I teamed them with:
- Above frilly socks – £1.99 approx on eBay.
- Collared geometric pattern dress – River Island £15 in sale.
- American Apparel denim skater skirt – £6.99 approx on eBay.
- Long chained clock pendant – £20 Urban Outfitters.
I’m definitely going to be writing up a post about the joys of eBay fashion hunting very soon, I’ve bought some really cool stuff for absolutely nothing recently. I mean – American Apparel, worn once, less than £10? Incredible.
The winner for my Little Birdie London bracelet giveaway was also announced this morning – congratulations to @lauraajarvis for winning. Now I need to rustle up some ideas for my next giveaway! Looking forward to my items from the store being delivered tomorrow, can’t wait to show you all the adorable pieces I chose, like this Lyla Statement Necklace:
