I went shopping again in Brisbane the other day, (really need to stop spending and start saving for Christmas cards, gifts and my trip, which I’ll update you all on in the next week or so. But I’ve just been going through one of those stages when I look through my wardrobe and I’m like I have nothing to wear.
As it’s been so hot here recently I’ve been wearing flip flops a lot as they’re so easy to take on and off compared to sandals that you have to keep fastening and un fastening every time you want to put them on or take them off. The only downside to wearing flip flops is that they only go with certain outfits like basic dress and shorts and t-shirts. Tried wearing them a few weeks ago with a sort of fancy dress to go out to dinner in, but they just didn’t look right to me.
Most people probably wouldn’t even care but in my opinion I just think flip flops can really bring down certain outfits. So after that, I set out on a mission to find some leather type slip on sandals. Preferable black or white as we all know how much I love black and white and in a plain style so that they would match any outfit.
Went to all my local shoe stores, but they still had the same styles as last spring/summer. Tried my usual online stores, but they was all stocking winter shoes. (So in the process I found a load of shoes that I want to get for winter next year). Went back to Topshop, but they didn’t have what I was looking for.
Then when I was just about to give up and head home. when I came across a store called windsorsmith I’ve brought a pair of their shoes before called Lily, think every young person in Australia and around the world brought this style of shoe when they were first in fashion last year some time.
Wasn’t going to get them at first as I don’t like to follow the trends, but then after a while decided to go and try them on and see what all the fuss was about.
Have to say they were some of the most comfiest low heels I’d ever worn, then while I was sat there pondering over them, like I do with everything before I decided whether to by them or not. I then got told by the shop assistant that they had gone down from $89.95 to $20 so how could I say no too a new real pair of leather shoes to add to my collection.
Always seem to get a bit of track, when I start writing a really good post. Anyways I’d never been to a windsorsmiths stores before so decide to go in and have a look and came across theses sandals called Bicker and it was love a first sight. Tried them on and they fitted perfectly and felt so comfortable when I walked around the shop in them.
They also came in black and white but I felt like they match my wearhouse one’s a bit too much so decided to just go with all black as when can you ever go wrong with black one of the best colours ever invented.
Here’s a pic I took of my windsorsmith shoes
Another great thing about them is that they have a bit of heel so I don’t feel like I’m just walking on the ground. Probably just me and my weird feet, but I hate wearing shoes where I can feel everything that I walk on and over.
Tried them out on an outing to the shops the other day. Had planned on saving them for my trip, but them I’m like what’s point I only live once and summer will be over soon and the quicker I wear them the quicker I can bed them in and start moulding them to my feet. Probably just me and my wide feet, but after walking in them for a while I was starting to get a blister on my two little toes. So when I wear them next time will defiantly put plasters on before I leave the house so I don’t get blisters again.
Overall would definitely recommend this style of shoe and windsorsmith shoes in general as they’re just so comfortable, go great with any outfit and real leather. Might be a bit on the pricey side for some, but from past experience I find you get what you pay for when it comes to shoes.
Been practice my photography skills over the past few weeks to try to improve on my pics for my post. But I couldn’t decide which one to go with so here’s too other pics I took of my windsorsmith shoes. Still find using a DSLR super confusing, but all practice is defiantly starting to pay off as I think all the photo I took turned out pretty good.
Not sure if you can get this brand overseas, but their probably have something similar at your local shoe stores, depending on the season. If not they do international shipping to certain place.
If you did read this post all the way to the bottom, thanks for taking your time to read it. Hadn’t planned on this post being so long, but just started writing and then couldn’t stop myself. Tried to review the shoes as good as possible, but think I sort of failed on that part, as I always have a bit of hard time when it comes to doing reviews on different items/products
Every seems to be going to plan so far, so as long as nothing else dies on me between now and TuesdayI will be back with another post at 7pm AEST on Tuesday.
Hope your all having a great Sunday night or Sunday day wherever you are in the world and I will see you next time.
