Please? grin

I clicked on that Fairysteps thread and I am crying now.

Please help me!

<<sobs and rocks quietly>>

FoundWanting Mon 06-Jun-11 11:52:58

I'll show you mine.


voiceofnoreason Mon 06-Jun-11 11:55:05

Oooh they are gorgeous. Will find mine in a mo

FoundWanting Mon 06-Jun-11 11:57:53

Thank you, voiceofnoreason grin

voiceofnoreason Mon 06-Jun-11 12:00:47

Found mine - these but in slate grey - formalish for work i am afraid. Kurt Geiger

voiceofnoreason Mon 06-Jun-11 12:10:50

Foundwanting - I want these tho - but have yet to make the leap to opaque tights with them - is a key S&B question. Opaques with this kind of sandal is trendy - but is it too trendy??


FoundWanting Mon 06-Jun-11 12:18:18

A most acceptable work shoe, voice

The second ones are very, very nice. I can't do sandals with opaques because I am old and people will just think that I have got it wrong . I would have to do bare legs and a good toe-nail colour.

voiceofnoreason Mon 06-Jun-11 12:19:02

Found - I couldnt agree more. But how old is too old?

FoundWanting Mon 06-Jun-11 12:22:24

I'm 43, and that is too old for tights and sandals in my world.

I keep going back to your second link. I want them too. They would go with everything, nice platform so not too high, good foot support. smile

Thornykate Mon 06-Jun-11 12:24:13

I clicked on it too. When I read kooky shoe I thought irregular choice or united nude or maybe someone conservative describing a Bondagey Tabitha Simmons shoe.

Can't possibly share today's footwear with you without explaining in my defence I am in hosp awaiting induction smile it's ugg flip flops & they're damn comfy too!

voiceofnoreason Mon 06-Jun-11 12:26:09

Hi - Im 42 so i suspect i am also too old - unless i am getting smashed on WKD and smirnoff ice ;-)

But they would go with everything and i am lusting after them significantly. I get terrible shoe envy. net-a-porter makes me want to sell a kidney for some louboutins

FoundWanting Mon 06-Jun-11 12:27:31

How exciting, Thornykate grin (the induction not the flip flops).

You could show us your dream shoes though. Just to offset the trauma of that thread.

voiceofnoreason Mon 06-Jun-11 12:29:05

Oooh Found - what a good idea - let us shun the fugly shoes and only post items of beauty.

For when i get whisked away to a luxury yacht in the carribean...summer personified

FoundWanting Mon 06-Jun-11 12:30:20

Those black ones would be so much more useful than python skin.

And a whopping saving of £370, it's almost as if they are giving them away.

voiceofnoreason Mon 06-Jun-11 12:32:18

Indeed - my point exactly. For the same money you could get the louboutin espadrilles and the carvelas. Now that is a bargain

FoundWanting Mon 06-Jun-11 12:34:30

I like these for yacht-based activities. A wedge is the only way to go on deck I feel.

voiceofnoreason Mon 06-Jun-11 12:39:07

Oh I agree - all seagoing operations require a wedge, but the espadrille is the way forward

voiceofnoreason Mon 06-Jun-11 12:43:35

Like these espadrilles

MissBeehiving Mon 06-Jun-11 12:54:22

Bloody shoe porn grin

These are for an evening at the casino in Monaco. Accessorised by Daniel Craig.

<wrings hands>

I can't divulge my latest purchase until they have arrived. If they are truly awful then it can remain my shameful secret and <looks around> no one need ever know.

Thornykate Mon 06-Jun-11 12:56:11

Well seeing as I was already thinking of Tabitha Simmons I have been wanting these for a lifetime & still can't afford them even though theyve been on sale for ages.

For this season it would have to be these I am lucky that my ankles are quite slim so I can get away with ankle straps.

What I really need to do is start finding a sensible happy medium between flip flops & skyscraper heels!

FoundWanting Mon 06-Jun-11 12:56:23

That is an award-winning espadrille and I bow to your obvious expertise in this field.

Now, imagine our yacht has moored in Puerto Banus and we are off for cocktails.

A happy, holiday colour, perhaps?

voiceofnoreason Mon 06-Jun-11 12:58:59

HOLD THE THREAD!!! MissBeehiving has a confession to make....

go on - you can PM me for absolution if needed....

voiceofnoreason Mon 06-Jun-11 12:59:59

Found - I miss read puerto banus and spluttered coffee over my keyboard.

love that colour - frantically searching for something nicer

FoundWanting Mon 06-Jun-11 13:02:05

Hello, Miss. I really need to see your shoes. They can't possibly hold a candle to the ones on the other thread. I promise that if I don't like them, I will not say a word.

Thornykate those yellow ones are absolutely wonderful. You must be very leggy. envy I'm far too stumpy of leg for so much strappage.

Thornykate Mon 06-Jun-11 13:04:55

Those jimmy choo brights are lovely too. I really NEED some new brights after all this window shopping.

Due to expense of baby/ mat leave I will probably end up with these which do look much nicer in real life.

Nicer than the picture that is. Unfortunately not nicer than the jimmy Choos or the DVF hmm
