Evening lovelies! Tonight’s post is a little different. This is my entry to a competition Sarenza are holding. If you’re not familiar with Sarenza, it is a fabulous online fashion destination for some of the most beautiful shoes around, including styles from brands such as Scholl, Jeffrey Campbell and Converse. Sarenza are offering bloggers the chance to win £800 worth of shoes. The deadline is tomorrow, so if you want to enter, check out their Facebook page for more details!
For my entry, I’ve chosen some of my favourite styles from the A/W collection, all of which I would chose if I won the prize, and that are my ‘must haves’ for the winter months.
FOUR FABULOUS FLATS
1. Jeffrey Campbell Elegant Studs – £94.90
Copies of these beauties have sprouted all over the high street, but nothing can beat the originals. These have the classic slipper shape with a touch of sparkle in the form of studs and stars. These would be perfect with some opaque tights and a white shirt dress for an androgynous look. I love the shape of these and they look oh so comfy!
2. Mellow Yellow Kitsoupress – £126.65
Another classic boyish shape in the form of a loafer. These are a gorgeous mahogany shade which I haven’t seen a lot of in the shops, with a cute fringed front. The perfect colour for an Autumn shoe in my opinion! I’d style these with some cute ankle socks and a floral dress for a clash of masculine and feminine styles.
3. Arian Baboo – £41.65
These aren’t something I would normally go for but I was drawn to the quirky leopard print and high top style. These are more of a boot than a shoe, which can sometimes be a tricky style to wear, but I think teamed with some pale blue skinny jeans and a chunky over sized nude jumper, these would look really statement and eye catching. I like that the shape is so simple to let the print take centre stage, too.
4. Georgia Rose Dodda – £67.15
The brogue – a simple staple in every girl’s shoe collection nowadays. Easy to wear and easy to style, this is a must have style to own for me. I like the finish to these ones, not too matte, yet not too shiny, and I like how the detail and shape are leaning more towards the typical male brogue. These look like they’d be a good chunky, sturdy shoe for winter. I’d pair mine with knee high socks for a nod to school days and a floaty dress for a twist.
FOUR HEAVENLY HEELS
1. Jeffrey Campbell Areas – £93.93
These were an obvious choice for me as they are going to be on my Christmas list so I just had to put them down! I love these because they have a comfortable heel height for day time and I love how high they go up past the ankle. I know a lot of people go for these in black but I think this neutral colour is much nicer and would go with so much. These would look great with simple leggings and a big cape coat for a wintery feel.
2. Scholl Farym – £101.15
Again, this is another day time heel. I love wearing heeled boots during the day in Autumn and Winter, so comfort is massive for me. Obviously in the evenings I’ll go for something higher, but if I wore anything higher in the daytime I wouldn’t be able to stand up for more than a couple of hours. I like that these have a tread on the sole, as they would be great in the rain and maybe even the snow! I love the caramel shade aswell, which would look gorgeous with some chunky knitwear.
3. Carvela Anyway – £116.28
If any of you have read the blog for a while, you will know I’m a MASSIVE Kurt Geiger and Carvela shoe fan, so when I saw that Sarenza stocked them I admit I squealed a little. These are such a versatile, all year round style and would go with so many things. They would look equally as good with a smart work look as they would with an LBD! Also, the fact that they’re closed toe means that they can be worn with tights to hide those pasty pins we all know so well in the winter months!
4. Jeffrey Campbell Foxy Wood – £77.69
Finally, my list wouldn’t be complete without these babies. The Foxy Woods. The Lita’s little sister. The blogger shoe of choice. Typically, these would be more of a summer shoe, but this uber sparkly option is crying out to be worn at Christmas parties all over the globe. However, the wooden heel and platform bring them down a notch, making it almost acceptable to wear them for any occasion. Please excuse me whilst I drool…
What do you think of my Autumn/Winter ‘must haves’? Would you wear any of these? Have you bought anything from Sarenza recently?
