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.

1. Yummy greek salad whilst on a date with my boy // 2. My new platforms // 3. Huge cocktail // 4 and 5. My cat had kittens and they are adorable! // 6. Gromit hunting in Bristol // 7. I visited the ‘David Bowie is’ exhibition at the V&A museum. I got these Aladdin Sane inspired earrings from the gift shop // 8. New blue hair // 9 and 10. Hanging out with my lil sis

One of the best parts of this month (apart from my new platforms!) has been spending more time with my sister. I have been so busy with work lately that I didn’t really have any time to spend with her, but this month I made the effort to reconnect with my lil sis and it’s been fab.

She has just started her own blog: ‘Otaku gamers unite Please pop by to have a look and say hi, it will make her day!

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…”

Be mine!

Hey Guys and Dolls!

I feel like I haven’t blogged at all this week! So sorry for that. I’ve had quite a tough week, I have an assignment due in soon so that has been taking up most of my time. I’m finally over the flu though so that is one good thing đŸ™‚

I was doing a little online browsing this morning, I was suppose to be looking for sensible clothes for my African safari next month but I somehow ended up shoe shopping instead. Oops! How does that always happen? Anyway I came across these beauties and I swear my heart skipped a beat. I’m so in love with them!

The colour is fabulous and I just adore how unusual and quirky they are. Sadly they are no way suitable for my safari so I cant possibly justify buying them. Sad times. Hopefully they will still be in stock after my holiday.

Gorgeous shoes you will be mine!

Love from JJ

Hey Guys and Dolls!

Happy Monday! I usually hate Mondays with a passion but I’m in a very good mood today. I woke up to a few surprises this morning, one of which was these fabulous shoes waiting on my doorstep. They are a gift from my dad. He spends a lot of time in the USA which is why he chose this stars and stripes design to remind me of him.

I love unwrapping new shoes! photo2

These beauties are so perfect for me, I love a statement shoe. They have a 6 inch red patent heel and a 2 inch platform. I love that they are lace ups and the contrast between the patent heel and the denim on the shoe is just divine. If you love these shoes as much as me you can grab yourself a pair here.

There are so many different ways you can style these boots. Today I am wearing them with a blue sweater, black shorts and tattoo print tights. They would also look great with a slogan tee or American style football jersey. You could also use them to jazz up a simple LBD.

I’m still suffering a little bit with the flu I have had for the last week (hence, my hair and makeup is a mess!) but I think I am over the worst of it now. Hope you all have a great start to your week!

Black wedge boots covered in tiny studs. These belong to my sister but I just adore them. They would go perfect with so many outfits.
