Lady Bug Says ... Time For A Challenge!

Right, I have a bit of a confession... I may like buying shoes, just a little bit :S
I can hear you all say, whats wrong with a shoe collection. There is everything wrong with a shoe collection when you only wear maybe 5 pairs on a rotation each season.
Which is a bit of a crime when you have:

22 Pairs of Boots

42 Pairs of Flats

And 22 Pairs of Heels!
86 pairs of shoes and I only wear maybe 15 pairs regularly!
So my personal style challenge this month is to wear a different pair of shoes for the next 28 days. Hopefully it will help me see what shoes should be kept, and what should be passed on to a better home. Even more so, dressing around a pair of shoes could produce new outfit ideas which is very exciting!
Hopefully I will be able to stick to my challenge and not long for the days of less variety!

I started my challenge with these ankle boots from Primark


I wore

Jeggings, Tesco £7, with Black Leggings under, H&M £5, White Long Sleeved top, Primark £3, Grey Jersey Top, Bershka £8, Grey Knitted Waistcoat, Primark £8, Skinny Belt, Primark, came with a skirt, Pink Scarf, Camden Market £3, Ankle Boots, Primark £10

Outfit Total - £44



I do like the combination of pink and grey :) Nail varnish is ELF 'coral' and it changes from Barbie pink to pinky gold in the light.

Whats your fashion obsession?

    Your nails are fabulous.

  3. Where do you store them all?! That is some collection. What a fun challenge, creating an outfit round shoes. Looking forward to seeing some of the fab outfits you will create!
    Oh and love that nail polish!
    I think my obsession would probaly be cardigans, jackets and scarfs! All good for hiding my bingo wings and belly! ;)

  4. At the moment they are all stored in a load of wicker storage boxes in my bathroom! Though they are occupying the space that the Mr is keen to install a bath in so they may have to be relocated soon!

  5. Bath vs Shoes? Tough call.

    I do love shoes but have a really low boredom threshold and tend to sell them after a few wears and just stick to the same 5 pair rotation. I'm down to about 6 boots and 25 pairs of shoes.

    I tried to do you belt over the cardi combo today and it didn't work for me :( Always looks so good on you!

  8. I usually put on 2 coats, then a clear top coat and that seems to last a good 2-3 days with no chips. For £1.50 you can't really go wrong, especially if you are trying out a colour you are not too sure about :)
