I put some new shoes on

new-shoes-1
new-shoes-2
socks - dorothy perkins, shoes - office

And suddenly everything is alright!

I'm on a spending ban at the moment, which of course means suddenly the shops are full of things I want! I really have more than enough clothes, and no space to store any more, as well as more improtant things to be spending money on right now, hence the ban. On top of that I still have a wardrobe full of clothes back at my parents' house, which I need to go clear out already (my mum has been bugging me to do it for months!). I'm holding off partly through laziness and partly because I am counting on it to provide a perfect opportunity to 'shop my closet' when I get bored of what I have in my flat at the moment.

The one thing I have allowed myself despite the ban though has been a new pair of work shoes, as mine are totally destroyed and not looking very professional at all. I spent a bit of money on them, but I wanted to make sure I bought a pair that would last me a decent length of time. I pretty much buy a new pair of oxfords or brogues every year for work, so I didn't want to break the habit of a life time (well, three and a half years anyway!) and get something different.

v.nice indeed and those socks are fab! I've set aside a fairly large bundle of clothes to sell on ebay but I just can't quite bring myself start the process - i've also implicated a one-in-one out system on my wardrobe so if I want new stuff I really should just bite the bullet! good luck with the spending ban!

LOVE these brogues, the heel is perfection.

Glad I'm not the only struggling with my wardrobe at the moment!

Good choice! I love brogues with a bit of heel - so classy and comfy!
I have one pair from M&S in brown and have worn them so much!

Oxfords and brogues are classic styles that never go out of fashion - those are lovely and I like the slight 'wicked witch' look with the striped socks :)

Love those shoes. They look smart and will go with most work outfits so definitely a great long lasting choice. I am terrible at hoarding clothes, I try and only buy a few bits at birthdays and christmas each year.

I feel your pain - I'm on a similarly tight spending ban and so far doing well, but I just know I'll crack sooner or later!

These shoes are fabulous! Excellent choice!
