Gorgeous and glitzy? Or tacky and horrible?

I like them - but I guess it also depends on what you're wearing them with

Greensleeves Sat 11-Jul-09 16:37:41

with black or white linen trousers

Love them, but won't the Next sale start soon? Can you wait and get them half price?

Greensleeves Sat 11-Jul-09 16:43:50

I've already bought them blush

it was a very rare impulse buy, normally I am a grumpy bastard and tight-fisted to boot

but they sort of called to me across the shop floor

and I bought a nice wide-brimmed hat as well grin

pretty-but i can find something to like about every shoe.

we are going on holiday on Friday and I am like a little kid, buying nice bits to take with me

these shoes have made me very happy grin

Would be lovely with linen trousers! Where are you going on hols?

nickschick Sat 11-Jul-09 17:13:18

Greensleeves Sat 11-Jul-09 17:21:15

my dad took us every year when I was little and I remember it with such huge affection, I am ridiculously excited about taking my boys

and we NEEEEEEEEEED a holiday

dh and I are such a couple of overgrown kids anyway, we love all the funfairy arcadey beachy glitzy shit grin

I am lovingly compiling outfits grin

what colour toenails do you think? Pink is the obvious, but I am tempted by pearly leafy green too

ThePhantomPlopper Sat 11-Jul-09 17:29:15

I'd go for the green nail polish.

Greensleeves Sat 11-Jul-09 17:50:26

ok the green it is thengrin

TheRealMrsJohnSimm Sat 11-Jul-09 17:55:42

oh no.....don't go for pearly green nail polish on your toes - you will look like you have some kind of nail bed fungal infection.

Pink would be lovely. Oh and I have coveted those sandals myself - they did them last year in plain diamante but those are so pretty with the pink tones

BTW, the next sale starts on Saturday 18th so would have been too late for your holiday anyway.

Have fun!

To me they look like 6 year old bridesmaid shoes. Sorry!

ThePhantomPlopper Sat 11-Jul-09 17:59:38

No green looks good, obv the right shade.

Simples Sat 11-Jul-09 17:59:45

they are ok.
