Something to confess.

I am not a shoe person. Shoes really don't interest me. If could spend everyday in ballet pumps then I would but a girl has got to mix it up a bit. I think it may be partly because I have big feet (size 9 to be exact) and for most of my teenage years I found it incredibly hard to find nice shoes that fit these boats on the end of my legs. Luckily now, most retailers go up to a 42/9 - yes Topshop and New Look I am nodding my head to you and giving you a MASSIVE thumbs up.

However my "shoes don't really interest me" line is no longer relevant for I have discovered the Miu Miu Glitter Ankle Boots.

I am completely obsessing over these. I've been checking the Net-a-Porter website a few times every week for the past god knows how long to make sure they are still in my size. Yep, these beauties are available in a UK9 I'll have you know. I don't think I've ever felt this way about a pair of shoes since I purchased a pair of Melissa/Vivienne Westwood jelly ballet pumps.

Seriously I NEED these shoes. The detailing on them is just beautiful and I can tell they'd just go perfectly with everything in my wardrobe. Who doesn't love a glitter heel? I'm particularly liking the curve detail of the heel and the peep toe AND the buckle strap AND, okay I need to breathe.

Small problem, they are £555. However, I do have a job interview tomorrow (I may add this is my dream job) so if all goes well, first paycheck I'm going to treat myself to these (permitting they are still on the website, which they WILL be)

So there we have it. My confession. I am completely head-over-heels in love with a pair of shoes and it's like nothing I've ever felt before. I'm sure once we are acquainted it will be the beginning of something beautiful. Now the question is, which colour?


  1. I love these shoes too but even if I could afford them, don't think I could easily wear them. Be careful with designer shoes sizing though. It often runs small.

  2. Ah thanks for letting me know Val! x

  3. I'm the same - i'm not a shoe gal either. (I am, however, a crazy bag addict!) Love the glitter, though, i'm partial to a bit of sparkle in my life! xxx

  4. LOVE these shoes! <3
