Feelin’ all white

Hey Guys,

Apologies for the awful title, I do love a good pun đŸ™‚

The head to toe white look is a massive trend this summer. Actually it is one trend that I have been avoiding up until now. The clean minimalistic look isn’t one that I usually go for. However, when my new white platforms arrived I just couldn’t help but put together a white outfit to really show them off.

The all white look can be very feminine which is fine but not really my style, which is why I was delighted to find this white vest in H&M. It has mesh skulls all over it and really helps to toughen up the outfit, and of course my shoes are pretty badass too! I wore this outfit out to have tapas with my boyfriend and my sister and I was surprised at how many looks I got from other people. I guess it just shows that white can be just as much of a statement as neons.

Later that evening I spilled patatas bravas all over my skort! I’m so clumsy!

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…”

Love from JJ
