I realised something this week. I need some shoes for my holiday. I already have a wardrobe full of wonderful shoe-y goodness, but i just fancied buying a new pair. I swear everytime i book a holiday my bank balance just gets rinsed by me buying stuff i don't really need (it does anyway but going on holiday seems to set me off on crazy shopping sprees). However, being a student + crappy wage slip this month + purchasing more dresses off ASOS = No Topshoppy for Beth. So, i did what any other girl would do, i headed to Primark like the little pauper that i am.
And i'm going to sound even more of a cheap little peasant when i tell you that i found them in the sale section.. for only £6. Normally, they never have my size but i spotted one right at the back and grabbed them before anyone else could get their filthy mitts on them, and dashed to the tills with a tenner quicker than you could say 'bargainous'.
I've been wanting a cheap pair of brown wedges for ages now to take away with me. I already have a couple of pairs but they're just not high enough for me to wear with certain outfits, and trust me, with stubby excuses of legs like me i need all the platform-y help i can get!
I thought i'd wear these for going out at night. They're suprisingly light considering they're quite a high platformed wedge (they don't look as high in the photos but they're quite a decent bit of tall-ness). Also, those streets abroad can often be quite wobbly and uneven - and my trusty high heels don't fair well (i've lost count of the number of times i've fell over unexpected drains/out of place cobble stones/stray cats etc...)
They're also suprisingly comfortable.. Which is a mahoosive plus for me as i have a bit of a habit of wearing shoes that hurt my feet in the name of looking a few inches taller..
And all for £6.Well done Primark.
You've satisfied my shoe cravings without any feelings of spending-guilt whatsoever...
