Morning readers, today it’s me bringing you a thrifty tip-off from my own wardrobe… Now don’t shout at me, this one does require a small monetary outlay but I’m confident it’s worth it and Gemma will approve. Can you muster up £19? Well, for £19 you can buy the shoes your wardrobe has always needed. Wear them for work, drinks, shopping, a wedding or even a funeral. Marks and Spencer black patent pumps.
I’ve said before, I’m not a huge fan of black. I actually already own a pair of black patent heels with a gorgeous bow detail on the front. They are very high and very pretty but not quite does-it-all stuff. They were also (although not whoppingly expensive,) not going to get you any change from a £20 note. So despite me not loving black shoes, I needed some. I needed a pair of work heels that I didn’t feel soul-less in. I needed some heels I could sling on for dinner or meeting friends that would look good but still be reasonably comfy. I needed something with a heel height that I didn’t consider frumpy (I do love a heel,) but wasn’t sky-scraping either. And because all I could find didn’t tick any of those boxes, I wanted something cheap, because lets face it, this wasn’t going to be my dream shoe.
It turns out said dream shoe was residing in Marks and Spencer for some time before I paid it any attention and I know this because both my sister and Jess own a pair – and have done for ages! (Hands up in the comments box if you already own these shoes?) They’re the perfect heel height, I love patent for it’s slightly sassy feel, they’re wide enough to be comfortable and do you know what? Despite my reservations, I’ve not had them off. No fear of getting wet because they are good old fashioned plastic. They go with jeans, pretty dresses, shorts, ankle skimming tailored work pants, everything I tell you.
So in case you’re on a bit of a mission to find the perfect shoe and coming up against a blank wall, give this pair a second look. At £19, you can’t really go wrong I’d say.
