TOPSHOP, £100 £30

If you've followed my blog for a while you may or may not have realised I have an absolute addiction to purchasing shoes. It's strange because I never, ever used to be a "shoe girl", instead I would rather spend my money on tons of pretty dresses. It's only over the past year I've developed an addictive taste for gracing my feet with an assortment of skyscraper heels and worryingly dangerous platforms. I tend to receive compliments on my shoe choice so I decided to share my entire collection (so far!) on my blog as some of these shoes sadly never, ever see the light of days as there's just too many! Here you will see how my shoe collection ranges from a mere 9 pence to £195!



TOPSHOP ALLEGRA BOOTS: £75 // URBAN OUTFITTERS GLITTER PLATFORMS: £85 £30 // H&M PLATFORMS: £24.99

These three are sat near the entrance to my flat, probably because they are the most worn out of all of my shoes. I tend to opt for black shoes most of the time as I tend to wear patterns, so it's always easier to match a pair of black shoes. All three of these are also the most comfortable out of all of my heels and platforms, so that's probably another reason why I wear them more than everything else! It was so hard to get my hands on the Allegra boots at the time, because everyone seemed to surge for them as soon as they hit the shop floor. Luckily, I spotted the last pair in my size in the Southampton store and I didn't even hesitate in handing over 75 big ones for them, when usually I'm quite stingey with money! They have been worth every penny though as they go with absolutely everything and are ever so comfortable. The glitter platforms are a regular feature on my blog as I'm always wearing them - they really make an outfit whole! The H&M platforms are super duper high and make me well over 6 foot, so sometimes I'm a bit dubious of wearing them for fear of looking like a giant, however they're so soft and easy to walk in!




SILVER RIVER ISLAND MILITARY BOOTS: £75 £35 // VELVET DOC MARTEN'S: £112 // GOLD DOC MARTEN'S: £30 // TOPSHOP FLORAL BOOTS: £35 // VINTAGE PUMPS: £2 // HEELED B&W NEW LOOK BROGUES: £15 // GOLD TOPSHOP BROGUES: £60 £30 // KHAKI NEW LOOK PEEP-TOES: £13 // BLACK BUCKLE PRIMARK HEELS: £8 // GLADIATOR OFFICE HEELS: £80 // CREAM NEW LOOK BROGUES: £20 // CREAM CROTCHET PEACOCKS BOOTS: £30 £10 // BROWN RIVER ISLAND BROGUES: £25, £12 // FLORAL TAPESTRY OFFICE BOOTS: £80 £25 // LEOPARD OFFICE BROGUES: £62 £31

Say "hello" to shoe rack number one! As you can see I have a bit of a love for lace-up boots and brogues! Both pairs of my Doc Marten's really are my pride and joy! I plan to also invest in a black pair as the velvet and metallic gold are sometimes a bit too extravagant and completely clash with what I'm wearing! Some of these shockingly have never even been worn. For example, the Peacocks crotchet boots still have the elastic attaching them together and they were purchased well over a year ago! However, I tried them on today and they have a really loud squeaking sound when I walk in them! Does anyone have any tips on stopping shoes from squeaking at all?!


URBAN OUTFITTERS STUDDED HEELS: £100 £15 // NEW LOOK SUEDE STRAP PLATFORMS: £25, ALLSAINTS MILITARY BOOTS: £165 // ALLSAINTS BROWN SHEEPSKIN MILITARY BOOTS: £195 £95 // SUEDE URBAN OUTFITTERS SANDALS: £32 £18 // VELVET TOPSHOP ARTWORK BOOTS: £75 // PRIMARK CHELSEA BOOTS: £15 // TOPSHOP VELVET BROGUES: £58 £25 // NEW LOOK BLUE & SILVER HEELS: £30 £15 // VINTAGE LEATHER HEELS: My nan's // OFFICE PINK BOOTS: £80 £16 // DOLCE VITA LEOPARD LOAFERS: £75 £14 // CORAL H&M FLATS: £5 // STUDDED OFFICE BROGUES: £40 £12 // RED NEW LOOK PEEP TOES: £30 £15 // PRIMARK NAVY WEDGES: £15 // UNDERGROUND BLACK CREEPERS: £92 // FRINGE OFFICE LOAFERS: £60 £30 // GREEN PRIMARK SANDALS: £12 // VINTAGE DALMATIAN LOAFERS: £2.50 // HEELED BROWN NEW LOOK BROGUES: £10

This is shoe rack numero deux, which is a massive 5 shelves high! Ideally I'd like to have a book shelf to cater for all of my shoes... maybe even one day I'll have a whole room or library full of shoes - now that would be wonderful! As you can see the pink boots still have the tags on and remain unworn from the January sales! They're a little too small unfortunately so they're a bit too painful to wear. I always make the mistake of buying shoes that are either too small or too big for me because they're the only pair left. I really need therapy!


GLITTER H&M BOOTS: £30 // STUDDED RIVER ISLAND PUMPS: £12 // TOPSHOP FLORAL ESPADRILLES: £7 // BLACK URBAN OUTFITTERS STUDDED PUMPS: 9p // GREY URBAN OUTFITTERS STUDDED PUMPS: 9p


JEFFERY CAMPBELL SPIKED LITAS: £130

The Jeffery Campbell Lita's are my babies and are the only "designer" branded shoes that I own, unless you count AllSaints. I splashed out on them on my 21st birthday with all the money I got, so I didn't feel too guilty in handing over £130 for them. They're so, so beautiful that I'm actually terrified to wear them out! I need to get over my fear and wear them out soon though otherwise they certainly will have been a waste of money.



LEATHER TOPSHOP SANDALS: £55 £25 // BURGUNDY VANS AUTHENTIC: £40

The heeled sandals were my most recent purchase a few days ago from the Topshop sale, whilst the Vans are the only pair of trainers I own! As I'm posting this I've actually come to realise I left out my gold Hunter wellies too, which are packed away in the cupboard ready for festival season this summer! And that concludes my entire ever-growing shoe collection. Some of these prices are estimates as I've had some of these shoes for absolutely years, but they are quite accurate. Out of curiosity I totaled up the amount that has been spent on my shoe collection (including the Hunter wellies) and I can reveal my feet are actually currently worth:

£1593.67


That's only using the prices that I paid, rather than some of the shoes at their full price! Initially that may be shocking, but then I thought that would only ever buy me just 3 pairs of Louboutins at the most! However, I still think I may just have to cut down a little bit!
