NEW IN: ZARA BOOTS

Zaraaaaaa. Zara Zara Zara. Zara is…. Well. Put it this way, I went in there today with the intention of spending £0, I really did. But of course I upped my budget once I saw these. But you see it would have been an absolute crime for me not to get them; the price tag said £29.99 which I thought was a steal. I tried them on and they were the comfiest boots ever in the whole world (no really, they are) and as I wandered around the shop, mentally spending three-figures over my intended budget, I went to the till where the nice Spanish man with slicked hair said, “That’s £12.99 please”. £12.99. TWELVE NINETY NINE?

So you see, it would have been just illegal for me not to, right?

STYLE OBSESSION – WEDGE TRAINERS

I know they’ve been around for ages, I’ve owned a pair now for about six months, but trainers with a hidden heel are the absolute dog’s bollocks. Pardon my French but they are just so practical, wearable, comfortable and strangly chic. My mum was soon on the case, purchasing a black pair contrasting to my pair in beige and she fell in love too. As with most things my mum buys, I coveted them and they are now my adopted babies… They haven’t quite made it to live in my wardrobe just yet, but mark my words it’s all in due course my friends, all in due course.

I went shopping this weekend, after deciding that I can no longer spend (I know, I know) and to satisfy my craving for a heeled trainer, I went halfs with my heart and my head and opted for a pair from ye old fathful Primark, or Primarni as I like to call it. This excursion resulted in a studded camouflage pair with a slightly higher heel than the one’s I’ve been sporting but I thought “they’ll do nicely for Spring and Summer” and my bank balance rapidly decreased by £20. I know £20 doesn’t sound like a lot but I’m going to uni in September and I’m supposed to be saving. And then when you consider my habit of buying new makeup every week and not even cheap makeup at that, £20 for a pair of trainers that I don’t really need is a bit of an expenditure.

Nevertheless, I am delighted with this invention, even if I am way out of the time frame for writing a blog post about the Isabel Marant-sourced craze, but still, I got there in the end.
