Had a shitty year (still ongoing) and have decided life is too short to play it safe .
Also want to treat myself a little . But don't know if I am about to make a drunkanmistake .

What do we think of Irregular Choice shoes ?
Not the plainly lunatic styley ones .
Am I kidding myself ?
Quirky or try hard ?

Each to their own! grin

I think they are the shoes that style forgot. But i have seen others rave about them....I guess it depends if your overall style is really quirky?

STEP AWAY.......grin

I think some are really nice such as these....if you like them then that is all that matters smile

If not them , what could you suggest ?
Want to be a bit lively (am a young 42 , honest <old lady gibber> ) .
Want something I could wear with skinny jeans etc , so the shoes would be the only bit of bling with the outfit .

I love them, with a fairly plain outfit or little black dress, they jazz up whatever you are wearing! Not with an outfit that stands out too much on it's own though - that's when they start to scream 'crazy art student wannabe' I think!

Topshop shoes are fun and trendy without being scarily wacky. www.topshop.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/CatalogNavigationSearchResultCmd?catalogId=33057&storeId=12556&langId=-1&viewAllFlag=false&sort_field=Relevance&categoryId=208542&parent_categoryId=208492&beginIndex=1&pageSize=20#catalogId=33057&storeId=12556&langId=-1&viewAllFlag=false&sort_field=Relevance&categoryId=208542&parent_categoryId=208492&beginIndex=1&pageSize=200here

That was exactly what I was thinking rockchick .
Maybe a pair of the shoe booty things (too much wine to be able to add links , maybe that means too much wine to buy shoes ?)

Thanks Gillybobs , will have a look .
Oh and also forgot to mention that if the heels are too high I tend to walk like a cross between a drunkan toddler and John Wayne ...

I'd say the impaired 'linkability' is directly related to impaired 'shoepurchase' (both real words) topsy. Decide sober!

Have stepped away from the debit card and headed off to the kitchen in search of drunk food grin

But if anyone can be bothered to google , I was looking at Irregular Choice - Hawk Eye , in black and white .

Once I appear , bleary eyed and cursing the ape that shat in my mouth , in the morning . I shall see what words of wisdom have been uttered , and pray to the great shoe God that I didn't drink and buy during the night ...

Think they look like Willy Wonka got stuck in the everlasting gobstopper machine... in a good way.

topsyturner Thu 13-Oct-11 23:25:05

Hahahahaaa !
Still non the wiser whether to buy em or not grin

HotBurrito1 Thu 13-Oct-11 23:35:04

You could. If you do, wear them with black opaques and a simple dress/skirt and top. I don't think skinnies would work. Others may disagree grin

RockChick1984 Thu 13-Oct-11 23:37:23

They r lovely, and very subtle by irregular choice standards!

How about these, dressy to go with jeans but not sky scrapers?
