I'm off to another wedding this evening and bought my dress in the All Saints sale at the beginning of the month. But, I've been racking my brains for weeks trying to think what on earth I'm going to wear on my feet. Basically the dress is quite casual - usual All Saints style - and black (I'll post outfit pics tomorrow) and really requires heels to dress it up. BUT, I'm shit in heels. I feel like a tottering fairy elephant in them and my feet just can't hack the pain after about an hour - misery.
So I figured I'd have a quick look down Buchanan Street on Wednesday after work to see if there were any really good bargains to be had that I might actually be able to walk in. Nothing. Too late. Sales are practically over and nothing jumped out at me until...




Office strikes again! *squeal*
Of course they were full price and WAY out of my budget for this month. I deliberately tried on a size too small, so that I couldn't get the 'full-effect' and tried to fool my brain into thinking they were too uncomfortable... After fighting with the sales assistant (I wouldn't let go and they wanted to close the store) I left... empty-handed...

I tossed and turned all night. Oufit after fantastic outfit just kept going round and round in my head. I posted a message on Facebook about my horrible dilema: desperately needed work clothes or bright red boots with zips and buckles??

This was the response from my wonderful wee mammy:

"just dae it, buy them and i will give you half the price, yer maw x"

So the very next day...

Wham! Bam! Thank you Mam! xxx

P.S. These photos were taken at 7.45 this morning by a rather sleepy and perplexed Mr G. I'm standing on a kitchen chair!


  1. These boots are damn hot, I love pikes!
    How much did you pay for them?

  2. Here's a wee linky:
