These shoes are my life. Sad, I know, but I honestly love them. They are not the most glamorous or stylish of shoes, I just really like them. They go with nearly anything and are so comfy. I picked these shoes up from Savemart in Christchurch nearly 2 years ago and they are still going strong. They cost me $9.00 – a very wise investment if I do say so myself. I would describe these shoes as halfway between a loafer and a ballet flat. What I love most about these shoes is that I can wear them with anything: jeans, tights, skirts. You name it I have worn it with them. In fact, one of my personal favourites is tights, socks and these shoes. It sounds kinda weird, but I like the look. Plus it keeps my feet extra toastie in winter.

You may have noticed that these shoes are starting to look a bit haggard. Meaning you're probably thinking, ew, opshop shoes. But let me reassure you, the wear is from me. As I mentioned, I have had these nearly 2 years. In my opinion they have done pretty darn well.

Another reason why I am in love with these is the colour. I love pewter. I find silver shoes generally look really tacky, I would probably go as far to say that I doubt I would have bought these if they were silver. Another little detail is the snake skin look-a-like pattern on the front and back of the shoe. It’s just a nice little detail that adds personality to the shoes, something which I am quite fond of.

At the moment I am dying to find a pair of brown leather flats. Hopefully I can sneak out this weekend and look for a pair. Chances are I will be swamped with homework. Oh, the joy.

  5. I think the shoes that you can wear for two years and still be in love with are the most amazing shoes! They look awesome, btw. Plus, always on trend - i would wear them with a pencil skirt and a graphic T. But as you mentioned, they can go with anything and look fabulous, bc of their pattern and color. Great investment! And thank you very much for a kind comment on my blog. Stay in touch) xo
