Today I took the eldest Bolter out for some one on one time. That’s what I call it when I go shopping just with her. Also “quality time”. We went to, amongst other places, Russell & Bromley, and here’s what we saw:
She loves these flashing horrors, but its a shame that she doesn’t need trainers right now. But next year we will come back and “hopefully” they will still be there. Oh, I do hope so [hmm].
In the women’s section, the range is far more to my liking. Ignoring the look on the sales assistant’s face, we tried on sales shoes together. None of them are on the website, God only knows why.
Firstly, I am really tempted by these white based (ie as opposed to cream based) leopard print ponyskin slippers which are (because its 2013), also studded. I have leopard slippers, but these are just that little bit different, no?
My eldest Bolter’s choice of leopard shoes (with her little feet in them). Quite, umm, flashy:
How about snakeskin slippers? With, of course, some studding. I would buy them, but I like my snakeskin to be white and grey, not cream and brown:
Look at these navy suede heels: utterly lovely. But I can’t think of anywhere to wear them! Especially as I haven’t taken the tags off the navy heels I bought a couple of years ago. Or the red satin heels or or or. Anyway, I put them on to make me (and my colour loving daughter) smile:
Moving on to boots… This winter I hope to find some snakeskin boots, and if these were the right colour combo for me, I would be sold as the heel height and toe shape are great.
Here we have the blue suede version. They are lovely, but I would destroy them. And might struggle with the husband singing Elvis at me.
Oh, these gold boots are a WornOut favourite, and I think I will be cantering back to R&B to get them for one or more of the other ladies, now they are reduced from £295 to £125 or so:
Finally, my quandary pair. These pale silver/gold ones have me a bit confused. Do I like them? I think I almost do. According to the husband, they would be just the thing to wear to a Star Trek convention, and he was wondering if they came with a ray gun. Oh, everybody loves a comedian.
Today’s outfit: Zara dark blue cardigan | Zara lace crochet skirt | Banana Republic tan sandals (reduced from £60 60 £10 last season. Their sales are unbeatable!)
