Label Lust

Hello again gorgeous readers!

Anyone who reads this blog, or knows me in person, is aware of the fact that I stick to the high street when buying clothes, shoes, accessories, etc. and I sometimes flirt with car boot sales and charity shops to get one-off pieces for next to nothing too. This is as much down to being poor, as being a bargain hunter. I adore the British high street and I adore unique vintage finds an incredible amount, however even I lust after designer and high-end goods.

I used to hate shoe shopping and never saw the appeal of shoes but once I hit 23 something in my brain changed and shoes and handbags became essential items to me as I realised how much these items can change an outfit. Although admittedly, I tend to stick to the same few pairs of shoes in rotation, mixing it up now and then with the other pairs in my collection. I love Miu Miu, Louboutin, and all the other awesome brands. However Charlotte Olympia produces some knock-out shoes which I salivate over each season; I love them! Here's a pick of some of my dream shoes from a recent collection. Until next time my lovelies! (also, don't forget to show my twitter and YouTube accounts some attention!
