I remember writing a post about way back when about investment pieces. But it wasn’t what you think.
It was how, if I spend a bit more on something, I either want it to be classic plain black that I can wear everyday, OR it had to be a really statement piece that made all my other ‘plainer’ clothes’ sing.
Case in point: both of these Kurt Geiger pieces. This is the perfect everyday workwear bag: chic, classic, a great size (it fits my iPad mini, my wallet and my diary – which can’t be said for most of my bags). The shoes are, well, the showstoppers.
Just wearing these shoes on my Instagram Stories caused a huge commotion – they’re perfect for this time of year to add a bit of fun to my uniform of jeans and a tee. But I can also see myself wearing these on holiday, wafting around in a kaftan and in what feel like, basically, super luxurious slippers.
And I get the irony of wearing lobsters on my slippers when in fact I’ve eaten it approximately twice. And that was in a roll. Maybe that’s the appeal…?
I know that some of you can’t do slip-on shoes, but I’m afraid to say they’re the shoe of the moment so expect a lot more from me. I’m not finding any problems walking in them right now and love how easy they are.
The weather has been what can only be decribed as ‘glorious’ here in London, and although it’s often acceptable to be coat-free, I’m doing it just yet. It’s still that chilly in the shade kind of temperature and although the frilly eyelet blouse is being worn, I’m not 100% prepared to ditch the coat. Parkas and faux fur coats? They’re being put away this weekend.
