New shoes no blues right? (I’m not sure if that’s an actual saying. I may or may not have just made that up as an excuse to buy new shoes *shifty eyes*). Anyway here are the little orange beauties:
I bought them from Topshop and they were surprisingly cheap at under £20. I loved the wedge heel which kind of reminded me of these delicious Prada creepers:
I was thinking they were going to be super comfy. I WAS WRONG. Whoever designed the back strap was clearly a sadist as the damn things are like cheese wire! I'm clearly just going to have to buy a load of plasters and hope my skin toughens up because I love them. Here's the outfit I put them with:

This necklace is Egyptian and is from the little gold mine that is my Grandma, she bought it in Cairo in the 50s. The beads are amber but it’s kind of a deeper orange than normal amber – it reminds me of marmalade (things always seem to go back to food in my mind.)
Here’s the song I had in mind when I was thinking about this outfit – I have no idea why since it’s more 60s than 80s – I was going off on a bit of a red / orange theme. Love this lady:
