Spikes Not Heels

Today we need to talk about these shoes.

Burgundy jeans @topshop jeans, Jeffrey Campbell flats, white shirt and my steal of an @asos jumper (£6 in the sale) #todayimwearing

Jeans, Topshop Leigh jeans - jumper, ASOS sale steal £6 - shirt, from Primark many many moons ago, shoes, Jeffrey Campbell via Office on eBay, £30.

These beautiful shoes (and FYI this is my current favourite outfit) popped up on a wishlist, and I almost didn't buy them- JC shoes have been a bit 'done' by bloggers and although that doesn't usually put me off, it was a niggle. Then after Christmas, I decided to treat myself, and decided I liked them whatever anyone else has been obsessively buying.

The saga continues- I almost returned them because they're quite stiff, and I was worried about breaking them in. Then I realised I'd paid postage, would have to pay the return postage, and I really did like them. It was a good move. After a couple of wears they have eased right off, the leopard print upper of the shoe is actually a ponyskin type 'hairy' fabric and the tiny little studs aren't spikey at all. They soles have some cushioning in, which is cool, and for £30+ P&P I think they're a nice pair of shoes. They also go rather nicely with my current favourite bag....

Anyone else on a shoe trail at the moment? I just can't leave them alone- for a change!
