My current lust have - Sophia Webster shoes - and a cheaper alternative from Office

I've been watching Sophia Webster for a while now and I love her shoes more and more. I've never been one to hanker after a pair of Jimmy Choos, or Louboutins, but her shoes I get quite excited about. They have such a distinctive look all of their own and I'd quite like to have a few pairs to display on a shelf. If you haven't taken a look already, I've included a link to the Sophia Webster site just so that you can see what you think.

These Sophia Webster pale lime yellow and navy striped Lola pumps (£230) are a real favourite of mine.  Fortunately, unlike lots of her other designs, they're not so distinctive that there isn't an alternative out there - which means that (at least in my dreams) I can have one "look alike" pair (which are also leather, unlike the SW ones which are canvas) whilst saving for one "real" pair.

So my alternative suggestion are the On Top style from Office (£65) which, as you can see come in blue...

...and yellow...

I like the idea of these with all sorts of things from the predictable scruffy/boyfriend jeans with a crew neck jumper, to the same jeans with a pretty but simple blouse, to black cigarette trousers and a tux jacket for the evening or maybe with a simple shift in the summer. It's so nice to see something refreshingly bright and zingy coming into the stores after all the dark clothes of winter. I wonder whether Spring might be on its way soon? (Watch it snow now I've said that!)
