White platforms

Hey Guys,

My amazing white platforms from YRU arrived last week. I have already written a fairly long post about these fab shoes (here) but I thought I would post some pics now that they have finally arrived.

Blurred Lines

Hey Guys,

Ever since I first saw the video for Robin Thicke’s catchy summer tune ‘blurred lines’ I have been massively obsessing over the white platform shoes worn by one of the models. Flatform shoes

I have spent the last couple of months pining over these shoes. I am a sucker for big chunky statement shoes and these babies definitely fit that category. I have been scouring the highstreet and internet to find my own pair but for a long time to no avail. Asos and Topshop both have a wide range of ‘flatforms’ but none that really captured my heart the way the shoes in the video did. Also none of the Asos or Topshop flatforms are anyway near as high as I would have liked. I was beginning to feel quite disheartened until I discovered YRU. I am so in love with every single pair of shoes these guys make. If like me you love quirky designs that make a statement then I wholeheartedly recommend that you invest in some YRU shoes. yru collage

I instantly fell head over heels for this pair of platform hi-tops, I actually think I prefer them to the original shoes that I was trying to find. Qozmo-Hi-wht-300x246

It was quite a while before I committed to buying them, they are quite pricey. $90 on YRU’s website. But I simply couldn’t forget about them and in the end I caved and ordered them from Nasty Gal because they were $2 cheaper (every little helps!). They are also available in the UK from Karmaloop but they are way more expensive đŸ˜¦

Anyway I am so happy that I did buy them and now I can’t wait until they arrive. I am hoping they live up to my expectations and are worth every penny. Keep your eyes peeled as I’m sure they will be featuring in an outfit post soon.

In the meanwhile please enjoy this chirpy pop hit that inspired my quest for the perfect flatforms. I am just going to run along to attend my local shoe addicts anonymous meeting “hello my name is JJ and I am addicted to buying shoes…”

International wishlist

International shipping costs are the bane of my life! There are several international brands that I adore, Nasty Gal and Black milk being two of my favourites, I often find myself browsing their websites and drooling over their beautiful creations. A few items usually make it to my shopping cart but when it comes to check out I chicken out. I just can’t deal with the added cost of international shipping, not to mention the long wait to actually receive my goods. And so these beautiful clothes remain locked away in my imaginary dream wardrobe, Sigh.

3. Spellbound spike platform – Nasty Gal

Birthday wishlist

Hey Guys and Dolls,

My birthday is coming up and since I haven’t posted a wishlist in a while so I thought it may be fun to share my birthday wishlist with you.

Birthday list

1. Chain Me Free Bomber from Nasty Gal – I am so in love with this jacket! The front panels are cut out and the wonderful chain detailing gives it a fab grunge feel. Think how amazing this would look over a neon bodycon dress.

2. UK Flag Shred Top from Blue Banana – Another grunge piece, I’m really loving anything with tassels right now.

3. Eagle necklace from Kukee – This statement necklace is from my fave online jewellery store. A perfect nod to the Americana trend.

4. Meow in space tee from Batoko – This may not be to everyone’s taste but it was made for me. Galaxy print and a cat wearing a cape, what more could I ask for in a t shirt?

5. Box wristlet bag from H! by Henry Holland – Henry Holland is one of my all time fave designers and I love his H! collection for Debenhams. I’m digging the neon and snakeskin on this bag, two trends for the price of one! đŸ™‚

6. Spaniel necklace from Veuxdoo – You may have seen me tweeting about this necklace last week. It’s so cute and kooky, gotta have it.

7. Let’s Ride Homegirl t-shirt from The Pretty Junk – It has a unicorn on it, enough said.

Love from JJ
