Summer at Some Stage

So far, so chic
As you may have noticed from the proliferation of shoe-related posts lately I am on the lookout for some new sandals! I'm trying not to spend money willy-nilly as I don't exactly have much at the moment so it's taking me a while to decide what to buy. Adding urgency to my shopping is the fact that I can't actually find two pairs of sandals that I bought and loved last year. They have disappeared! Very suspicious.

I am enchanted with this sandal/nail polish combo as seen on one of my favourite fashion blogs from the effortlessly stylish Laura Fantacci – Wearing It Today. Laura is fashion and shopping editor at Red mag, which has by far the best fashion pages of any glossy IMO! The sandals are £39.99 from River Island and the polish is Illamasqua 'Collide'.

Popped into River Island to try them on myself and it has to be said the effect is not quite the same on my pale feet! And still I did not buy...

If I was in the US I'd get some shoes from – I was tricked into looking at this site a few days ago only to discover the astronomic US to UK shipping costs. Very annoying indeedy.

Spot the Difference

I tried these Matalan gladiators on last week (bottom picture). They're cute, comfortable and cost £14. Yesterday I spotted these very similar Aldo sandals for three times the price. 'Ethnic' style glads aren't exactly a classic style – why not save your pennies and get the Matalan ones?

Love her Look: Lucy Laucht

In fact I love her look so much she might well be my favourite style blogger. I've discussed at length my feelings for tan shoes, but the truth is nude shoes are possibly even better. Lucy has a fab selection, including this Aldo pair which I totally intend to try on when I'm in London this week.

ASOS Designer Sunglasses Sale

The sale starts 7.00 pm Monday 16 May and is for 13 hours only. Up to 60% off. See you there. Ps if this is a farce with one pair at 60% off and every other pair costing £170 I will be cross. I still want RayBans.

Me Likey: Chanel Rouge Coco Shine Monte-Carlo

Love love love this colour! Has anyone tried it? I want to be this girl. Why is everything Chanel always so flinging flanging covetable?!
