Mum on the Run - 5 pairs of lovely shoes!

You may remember me showing you these fabulous shoes by Stuart Weitzman for Russell & Bromley. I thought that they were amazing when I saw them in Grazia and even more so when I tried them on in the store on a recent trip to London - but alas the £395 price tag prevents them from being mine.
 
 

It's the shape of these shoes at the front that I like as much as anything. For me they are a more modern take on a court shoe and would look great with slim leg black trousers, a black fitted jumper and a pea coat.  With the seed having been sewn, the hunt for a similar, but more reasonably priced, pair began.

  
Failing miserably to start of with, I came across these amazing shoes from Dries Van Noten (£420) at Browns. Again they have the same shape at the front and a good sturdy heel! I like the two tone combination of black and brown and the tortoiseshell (or horn as it is described) is really stylish. They also have a padded inner sole - even better. Alas the price is not.

 
Moving swiftly on, this Hobbs Iris Court (£199) is also a very stylish shoe. The combination of suede and leather/patent is very chic. They also come in a burgundy colour (as well as fern, below) and with a concealed platform, aren't as high as they first look. These would be great with high waisted wide leg trousers, for that boy meets girl look.
 
 
 
Possibly one of my favourites, due to their price, detailing and colour combination, are these Court shoes with suede vamp from Massimo dutti  (£89.95).  Zara's grown up sister, Massimo Dutti is a treasure chest of hidden gems and well worth investigating if you haven't done so previously. These shoes are probably slightly more work orientated than some of the other styles but are a modern alternative to a classic style court shoe.
 

Finally, the Blue heel moccasin, also £89.95 and from Massimo Dutti, make a nice change from black. Great with berry colours, grey and navy, they are no less versatile than black. Fabulous both at work and for the weekend with wide or skinny trousers or an A-line knee length skirt in a heavy fabric, they could be a really hard working piece. Chunky heels also slim down thicker ankles and shapely calves - as well as being easier to walk in. Always a bonus with smalls in tow!

  1. Beth - you won't be happy till you have the Russell & Broms. I'm just waiting for the post when they turn up and you go "ta dah!!!"

  2. I was thinking the same as Sue - just get them, as you love them so much, will be a wise buy and you'll get lots of wear. Make economies elsewhere... :-) x

  3. Sue's comment made me laugh ... because I too am waiting for the day that you produce the R&B shoes!!!

  4. Perhaps in the sale - with a really deep discount?
    They're nice enough, but I can't imagine EVER spending that much on a pair of shoes! (but maybe that's just me... LOL)
    Or maybe R&B will read this and gift you a pair to review. Perfect solution?!

  5. I LOVE those shoes!! I have tried them in Toronto and they are on my "wish" list. Just amazing! I knew there was something about you Beth...now I know we have the same taste in shoes. Started following on Bloglovin and you have two page choices which one should I be following?

  6. Hi Sue, Ash, TFF and Thea - I think that these are nearly out of my system now. Sadly (or not) the thing about what I do is that I am constantly exposed to new items to covet - but then again if a pair came my way I wouldn't say no!

    Iva, do you make any savings in Canada? I hope that they appear for you under the Christmas tree! I will have to check out Bloglovin because I am not sure. Sorry! Beth

  19. Hey. I noticed your site title, "Blogger: Style Guile" does not really reflect the content of your web page.

    When composing your site title, do you believe it's best to write it for Website positioning or for your audience? This is one thing I've
    been struggling with simply because I want good rankings but at the same time I want the best quality for
    my site visitors.

  20. With havin so much written content do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright violation?

    My blog has a lot of unique content I've either written myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my authorization. Do you know any methods to help reduce content from being stolen? I'd genuinely appreciate it.

  25. I am new to developing internet sites and I was
    wanting to know if having your site title relevant to your
    articles and other content really that important?
    I notice your title, "Blogger: Style Guile " does appear to be spot on with
    what your blog is about but, I prefer to keep my title less content
    descriptive and based more around site branding. Would you think
    this is a good idea or bad idea? Any kind of assistance
    would be greatly valued.

  32. Searching digg.com I noticed your blog book-marked as: Blogger: Style Guile.
    I am assuming you bookmarked it yourself and wanted to ask if
    social book-marking gets you a lot of targeted visitors?
    I've been considering doing some book-marking for a few of my websites but wasn't
    sure if it would generate any positive results.
    Thank you so much.
