I guess this means they are the shoe-trend du jour. I am unsure how long this fad might linger, so have no immediate plans to purchase any - but one to ponder I think.
In other buying, I have a bit of a 'thing' going on at LK Bennett recently. Mainly because the staff at my local branch are so genuinely nice and helpful.
I bought a trench coloured trench coat, and some navy blue wedge sandals (both reduced in 'spring reductions'). I've already worn the trench coat several times and I suspect it will continue to be a frequently worn item, as the prevailing weather around me is 'damp'.
Seriously though, aside from the weather, I really like this coat. It has a nice feel to the fabric, is quite substantial, so is warm/ practical as well as looking good. The shape is also good for me (5 ft 5 hourglass) which is great as I can struggle with coats in the waist area - with the waist not sitting at quite the right place. So if you are a mid height curvy girl I urge you to try it. I think it's a good investment purchase.
The sandals probably won't get so much wear as (a) my legs and toes need to be brought out of winter hibernation and (b) it still IS winter in these parts. A purchase of hope over experience I feel! However, like the coat I really liked them and the trip to purchase was a return visit, having pondered for a while. I like the wedge height - high but not ridiculously so, and the fact that they don't have that weird platform sole you often see nowadays (which is a not a personal favourite of mine!)
Photos of me wearing stuff to follow - but my house is full of ground up plaster / brick and general building grime at the moment - it's a challenge to find a decent environment for a photo - let alone a non dust covered mirror!
