Just that, thanks

Lots of great ideas on En Brogue.
Steer clear of 7/8 + flats if you have big or long feet - the crop will make them look even longer.

Should be ok, I'm a 5?

Thanks for the link, loads of ideas on there

I wear mine with leopard print ballet shoes.

I wear 7/8 a lot....with ballet flats mostly but also with chunky loafers too . I want some slipper style flats now, think they look v modern.

Also fancy a pair of brogues

Heeled loafer for work? Like the sound of that!
Don't suppose you could link to that style [clueless]

I have the shoes Numberlock linked to and they really are lovely and v v comfy

I've got the brogues Numberlock linked too, so I wear those, these or one of my many pairs of ballet flats.

Nehru Sat 18-May-13 16:48:09

i hate brogues.
Just unfeminine.
and are almost a bit

Nehru that's your opinion.....I disagree, it's all about how you wear them.

Numberlock Sat 18-May-13 17:16:01

Damn us and our unfeminine shoes, land, we'll never get a man!

I find that comment offensive and sexist actually.

Nehru Sat 18-May-13 17:16:37

lol at offensive.

You need to be offended more often

Numberlock Sat 18-May-13 17:17:46

If you say so!

I look ridiculous in brogues. DD1, who is 5'9 and a size 6 looks amazing in them. I look like a female dwarf, minus the beard.

RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie Sat 18-May-13 17:23:40

They would be perfect, Noddy.

Nehru Sat 18-May-13 17:23:44

THey are hideously school shoey

noddyholder Sat 18-May-13 17:24:59

I tried the darker ones Gorgeous on and I was wearing short trousers

KvassInTheNight Sat 18-May-13 17:27:36

Love those Noddy. Zara often come up with really great shoes.

Nehru Sat 18-May-13 17:59:19

Can't go wrong with animal

PlumSykes Sat 18-May-13 18:16:44

I like a brogue, you old trout. So long as not black, and worn with some bare ankle showing.

MrsCampbellBlack Sat 18-May-13 18:18:17

Remus - you made me laugh.

I don't do flats but if I did (ie if I was about 7 inches taller) then I'd do a nice pointed flat.
