Whats The Birthday Version Of Santa Anyway?

No, seriously. I’m turning 28 on the 12th (WHAT. That is ridiculous. How am I 28 already? I still feel as dumb as I did at 18, just with more debt, more body weight and about the same amount of money in my purse.)

So, dear Santa like birthday fairy, I’d like the below items please, thanks, ta.

Remember! 12th September! Presents!

Shoe Porn: Mel Shoes

I’ve been wanting a pair of Vivienne Westwood Melissa shoes for quite a while (having blogged about them previously here) – not just because they’re quite good looking but also the practicality of plastic shoes.

Going to and from work, I wear flat shoes, usually a cheap pair from Primark. They’re great – until it rains. Then I’m stuck with a soggy pair of shoes that stink out my desk. I wanted a pair of Melissa shoes to get around this problem but the (relatively – I normally pay less than £10 for a pair of shoes, and these are at least £50) high price tag put me off.

I was almost tempted to buy these Crocs ballet pumps* – those of you who know me will know I hate Crocs with a passion, but was that desperate for a better pair of shoes – but thankfully I spotted the Mel range of shoes from Schuh*.

They say:

Mel is the playful younger sister of Melissa, a happy go lucky footwear brand whose only aim in life is to sweeten your stride.

Taking on the same ethical stance as their sister brand Mel believes in being Vegan friendly, recyclable with a subtle scent, and proving that fashion can be thoughtful.

Playing with lighthearted silhouettes in block colours (very in this season!), Mel’s jelly collections of ladies heels and flats have been decorated with opaque and translucent butterflies, hearts and ribbons for a cute girly finish.

I bought a pair of black Vanilla flats* and they were actually cheaper than I had expected at just £20.

I’m already eying up my next pair – probably the Lacey pair of boots!

Shoe Porn: Repetto

I’ve not actually heard of this brand before (despite wearing ballet style shoes most of the time, I tend to go for the £8 pairs from Primark) but from what I can work out, Repetto offer a customising option where you can get a custom pair of shoes where you choose each detail, down to the laces and straps. Beautiful!
