(not) watching the England/Italy Euro 2012 game presented itself as the perfect opportunity to look through the June sales again, and dig out some of my fantasy buys.
My budget right now extends to eBay and very little else (though that includes a bitchin pair of grey suede classic pumps from Topshop and a new addition to my vintage Escada collection). But in online browsing land, budgets are an irrelevance.
So with reality briefly suspended, I went shopping on FarFetch – a shoe-lover’s dream for its vast variety of source stores.
I have decided a 25% saving on these cracking (and practically low) Margiela ankle boots is a great deal. Was £598.67, now £449.00. Totes barg. Jazzy glitter, non?
If you’re a little loose up top, it’s fun to accessorise with something perfectly sensible, nay, square below. The Acne loafer with massive tassel from the the ss12 collection can deliver that.
You’re loud, a little louche, prone to spots of bad behaviour and occasional nudity? No-one will see this sensible everyday shoe coming, and at £276.00 down from £460.00 (40% off) they’re a sensible price too.
Likewise, if you’re prone to being far too freaking sensible, a smashing bright pair of heels can really set off a dull outfit/personality. Plus, they’re a seriously easy way to get involved in the whole colour-blocking thing that will not go away (possibly due to being lots of fun). Just the other day in Sephora on Times Square a shopkeep told me that my fluro pink shift dress made their day. They may have been trying to sell me their wares, but as that colour makes mine, I don’t see why it can’t make other people’s day too.
Stella perspex-heeled two-tone satin sandals. Was £565, now £339 40% off at Net-a-porter.
