Put on your red shoes and dance the blues

(Photography by Will Epps, check out his online portfolio here)

So it's been a while since I showed my face on my blog so, in honour of my new shoes, here it is...

I wear this outfit on a regular basis, it's basically what I wear if I can't think of anything else to wear, pair it with a pair of plimsolls and it's perfect for going shopping or pair it with a pair of 6 inch wedges, slick on some red lipstick (Russian Red by MAC if you're wondering, which I just recommended to Winnie of Diamond Canopy who is a very happy customer!) and you're ready for a night out!

The shoes, however, have not had a chance to get out of the house before now as they are newbies. I picked them up when I was in London a couple of weeks ago and totally fell head over heels in love with them. I excitedly showed them to my boyfriend as soon as I got home and he said they were the brightest thing he's ever seen me in, seeing that we've been together coming up three years now, that does not say much for my wardrobe... I think I definitely need a big colour injection, I think being in the sun over the next few weeks (if British Airways strikes allow...) will reignite my love of colour.

The shoes are from Feud London by the way, if you haven't heard of them before I heartily recommend you visit their website because they have some very cute shoes and have a very original design aesthetic, you can buy them on Amazon, I can't find them anywhere else online! The t shirt is from Topshop and the shorts were cut off from a pair of Gap jeans from a charity shop which cost me the princely sum of 50p.

  6. That lipstick looks really good on you. I think that's a pretty good "uniform", in the summer mine is basically the same except with bare legs.

  23. ooh i am currently looking for the perfect red lipstick. might try out the one you mentioned. and i love how you just ripped a pair of jeans! lovely pictures x

  24. what a perfectly classic yet fresh outfit, kinda like a magic formula hence why it has become your go to outfit. I really love red shoes and the women who wear them and these are fabulous! Proof that fringed leather is absolutely valid! Also, I am a HUGE fan of Russian Red. It is basically considered a universally flattering shade of brick-red and fyi it is Gwen Stefani's favorite shade. Another great red if you want to go more blue toned is Nars Dragon Girl or also Mac Ruby Woo which is far more drying however.

  35. Bowie lyrics? Well, how could I resist?!

    They are reminiscent of the Mulberry fringed boots - but better - cos I didn't like the shape of the Mulberry's.

  47. Wow, thrifty on the shorts! I really want some vintage cut offs, the ones in the shops never fit right so I think buying old jeans and chopping them is the way to go! x
