new shoes – they're blue, they're suede, but we'll avoid the cliche, nice as it is

lashoes a

These shoes arrived a couple of weeks ago. I love them! They are the perfect fat heeled, round toed platform shape. I had been thinking about blue shoes for a bit just days before I found them… cue spooky music? In a good way, obviously.

I realised a few things the other night:

summer is nearly over, and it hasn't been the usual never ending hot and dry season;

I have a lot of suede open toed shoes;

it has rained a lot this summer, and will probably rain even more in the Autumn and Winter (although this is Melbourne, and our seasons are by no means guaranteed, so who knows? But it's a fairly safe bet);

I actually do want to wear my suede shoes.

And so I finally worked out the obvious, sprayed all my suede shoes with that water proofy stuff, and can now clop about happily in my very high, very colourful, very not-ideal-for-rain-once-but-it's-ok-now shoes, come rain or shine. Huzzah! Just call me bullet.

Wow, those shoes are amazing! I could never wear these myself (a bad back and two children sort of prevent me) so I am sooo glad I can live vicariously through you. Your photography and writing are just getting better and better and better! You are fabulouso (that's Italian for fabulous!) M x

My favorite shade of blue! These seem to have a art-deco vibe, I can imagine them with a 40's inspired suit. Can't wait to see what your wear them with.

I love them! But arrgh they're Topshop. This means they are tantilisingly easy for me to buy which I really really shouldn't!
I will just have to look at how beautiful they are on you and enjoy vicariously.

They are indeed very nice shoes - may I ask what water-proofy stuff you're using? Would you consider doing a review...? I have a couple of pairs of suede shoes that, likewise, rarely get worn out...

Sleekit said...

Aggie said...

Cute shoes :) Ah how frustrating has this Melbourne weather been?! Barely got my summer dresses out this year and already we need to be taking out our gumboots and tights or spraying water-proofing on our shoes... very good idea by the way, I do it with basically all my shoes! :)
