My Life as a Fashion Student.

Shoe Envy.

Hey Guys, my last two posts have been beauty related so I thought I'd do a fashion related post today, being a fashion student and everything.
So recently I think I have been really good in curbing my shopping obsession and havent bought any new clothes (or shoes) for a fair few weeks now. However this hasn't stopped me internet 'window shopping' as it were. I think my last shoe purchase was a pair of leather block heeled ankle boots from Topshop and that was before christmas! My shoe collection needs a bit of a revamp and these are a few which I am absolutely in love with and shall be saving as many of my pennies to buy.
I don't really have a particular style when it comes to shoes other than generally I love a platform whether it be on a heel or flat but anything goes.

1. I have been looking at these forever! they are from Asos, £45 PRIOR Metallic Pointed High Heels. The pointed mule seems to of made a major comeback and since seeing most of the buyers and merchandisers at Topshop HQ back in september tottering around in them, I have been obsessed. I only have one pair of mules which are from Topshop in black and a rose gold colour. There's just something about these ones though which are quite fun, definately a 'dinner' shoe.

2.Recently I have been drawn in further and further to the trainer trend which seems to be taking over, comfort is finally being accepted within the shoe world. These are from Topshop, £35 HOUSE Mesh Sporty Lace Sandals and are most likely to be purchased when payday finally arrives. I love the sporty look to them and they look super comfy but I may have to wait until this horrendous rain finally clears up to wear them.

3. If you haven't seen the new Kurt Geiger collection then you need to! With one of my Vogues ( I think it was the one before last maybe?) I received a small magazine with it that had all the new range in it and I can't say there was one pair that I didn't want. These are £220 Race You Shoes. I don't think I am ever going to be able to afford them but they are just so pretty ( will be at the top of my birthday list). Everything about them is amazing, the colour blocking, the wedge, the leather panels and the HEIGHT. I need these in my life.

4. This style seems to be a favourite of Topshop and there are so many variations in colour and print but they are the kind of shoe that kind of goes with everything; the cobalt blue just makes them a bit different from the trusty black platforms. The platform is wooden and the incline of your foot isn't actually that big so they are very comfy. These are £55, LASSIE ankle strap platforms.

5. Last but not least, Asos £45 MOSCOW Flatforms. These have been on my wishlist for a while, I love creepers mainly because they are so comfortable at it adds a bit to my 5ft 4 frame. I own three pairs of flatforms already: a white plimsol, a  pale blue brogue with clear plastic inserts and the Underground inspired ones in black and leopard. They just make any outfit a bit more exciting especially when they are printed like these ones. I'm a huge fan of florals and the print on these is a bit different to your typical summery ones.

Well these are my top 5, do you like them?



  1. I hear ya, love! My closet could use a bit of a seasonal revamp as well, but I've been SO good about not spending anything on fashion. I had a blog contest last month where we remixed our wardrobes and couldn't spend any money on clothes and I guess I'm still stuck in that mode! I love the floral shoes, though I can't decide how I feel about such a blocky platform. I think I'm so used to heels that I'd have a hard time walking in them, but I adore the print! I am following you with GFC! Come visit me!

  2. Generally creepers/flatforms are quite easy to walk in but I just love being that much taller haha. Thanks for the follow, i've followed back. Love your blog!
