Clarks Orla Kiely Beryl Shoes

I unexpectedly had some "time off" this weekend, waking up on Sunday to discover we had no internet connection and indeed no phone-line. A great excuse for able-bodied people to get on with other things, but not being able to, I was left in limbo. My family were out for the day (but brought back a new phone), so I showered, then took blog photos (not in the shower, of bloggy things)! Not sure what use it was, as I edit all my photos online, so couldn't actually do anything with them! I kept finding things to do, but they always required the internet at some point.  I didn't realise how physically demanding photography could be, when you're moving subject matter around (shoes) and contorting yourself into strange poses (feet/shoe shots), something I used to find a lot easier when I was doing it almost daily, but now with my limited ability, it's rather strenuous. Clearly I'm hopeless at switching off and/or relaxing and need to be doing something!  Anyway I'm feeling the effects today, very sore and barely able to walk and now have hundreds of photos to sort through! Thankfully after a few frustrating phone-calls back and forth last night and this morning, we now have a connection (and didn't need a new phone after all). So onto the shoes and I bought these a few weeks ago, after ogling them for months. You might even recall I styled the other colourway on The Shoe Girl Styles It months ago.

Irregular Choice: Poker Joker Dice Heels

Irregular Choice Poker Joker Dice Heels
I'm back with another super cute photo-shoot to debut the latest statement heel from Irregular Choice. Not a 'character' this time, but dice (I refuse to say "die" because I hate that plural)! I quite like dice, with my Blythe & Irregular Choice spotty boots one of my favourite pairs, with their little dice charms on the laces. My Mum would jump in at this point to say I LOVE dice, after I stuck a miniature one up my nose when I was little. The more upset I got, the more I sniffed it back up. Hilarious now, but at the time, I doubt it was for either of us!  I'll never live that one down! Anyway, there were two styles in two different colours, so four in total. Poker Joker that I bought, were also available in plain black or Throw A Six, a court shoe (kinda like Hearts On The Line from summer) in black or red. I really felt there wasn't a "bad one" among them, they were all lovely, but yes, sequins won for me. I must admit, I wasn't as excited about them as I was with Squeezy last month (because they felt like they were made for me), but that all changed when they arrived today.

Paperchase Princess Range

paperchase princess range Remember my 'Pony Party' post last month, about the latest collection at Paperchase? I mentioned that I'd made several orders, so here's another part. The remainder might have to come over another two posts (there's still so much). Most of these items, my sister bought for my birthday and she tells me, this collection wasn't as prominent as the unicorn ones instore.  So she's picked up the odd thing, over time when she spotted something new.paperchase princess range

Irregular Choice: Dollface & Cuckoo Bags

irregular choice cuckoo dollface bags
As you're aware, my collection of Irregular Choice handbags has grown considerably over the past year or so. I really must take a group photo, once I have them all contained in the one room! This week I added another two styles from the amazing flash sale they held briefly. I was lucky that I was already browsing the site pre-announcement, so had added the bags to my basket as I'd had my eye on them for ages, then checked to see if there was anything else. Although it hasn't stopped me buying completely, I really have to limit my shoe sales these days due to lack of space, so despite the brilliant bargains to be had, I resisted and left them for someone else! Granted there were a few pairs I'd have bought had they been in my size though!

Irregular Choice: Squeezy Bear Heels

Irregular Choice Squeezy Bear Heels
I was really excited when the postie arrived with a parcel for me this morning. My Irregular Choice Squeezy shoes already! I wasn't expecting them so soon and thought this week would drag waiting for them (and a laptop I kinda spur-of-the-moment bought at the weekend-to hopefully end my computer woes). So, I quickly had breakfast and got to it, with possibly the cutest photo shoot I've gotten to do for the blog. I like when I can throw weird and wonderful things into the mix instead of 'straight presenting' something, so I hope you enjoy the photos.
