Day 1114 - Shoesday Tuesday

Hello! Hope you're all well today. I have the bargain of the century shoes to show you. So, I'm on an unofficial no-buy. There's no proper rules, I'm just trying to watch the pennies as I've been over-spending a lot over summer. I really need to get back into eBaying regularly too, but ahhh, it takes so much work and there's too many scammers out there trying to get something for free that I really don't have time, patience or money for. I do notice a difference when it's not supplementing my income though.  Anyway I was feeling a bit dejected last week and in need of a little treat. I'd had my eye on these at full price, then when they were in the sale and hoped they would go even cheaper. They did indeed; down to £14.50 from £50 and I had a £10 loyalty voucher, so got them for £4.50. What can you get for under a fiver these days? Not much!

Day 1113 - Shoesday Tuesday

I've had my eye on these shoes all season and finally bought them the other week in the sale. They are currently my only sale purchase from IC. After overindulging in some beauty GWP's and the Collectif sale, I didn't leave myself anything for shoes. I still have several items on my wishlist, but will likely miss them. I can't really complain when I've managed to buy so many at full price throughout the year.

The Shoe Girl Styles It: Irregular Choice Disney Tropical Minnie 3

So the final outfit this week, is my plus size look. Click for my high end and high street and let me know your favourite. Like I said yesterday, these shoes have been very versatile and while I've gone for both tropical and pastel inspired looks previously, today is more traditional Minnie Mouse attire.

The Shoe Girl Styles It: Irregular Choice Disney Tropical Minnie 2

Hello, how are you all this evening? Tonight I have the second in my trio of outfits for TSGSI this week. If you've forgotten how this works (I wouldn't blame you, it's been so long since it existed!), then I choose a pair of shoes and style 3 outfits around them. One is high street, one high end and one plus size for variety. I try to choose different styles or colours for each, so there's a bit of a mix. In my last post (high end), I picked a bright, colourful look and today it's high street.

The Shoe Girl Styles It: Irregular Choice Disney Tropical Minnie 1

Ah yes, you read that right, TSGSI is back! I never intended to 'stop' it, nor did I expect the unanticipated break to last quite so long. January was my last post and I never finished that trio. I hate that, but I need to learn to be a little easier on myself and less strict about things. I got ill(er), life got in the way, stuff came up, I lost motivation, there, the world didn't end. Actually I even started these sets over a month ago and procrastinated so much (maybe I lost some confidence in my abilities after such a long hiatus), that I had to really force myself to publish this today or I feared I never would. I had a pretty rotten week last week, nothing bad happened, I just lost focus, felt really down about everything and anti-social (hence the lack of social media updates). I get like that sometimes. Probably because I get frustrated about being ill and not being able to do anything about it and although day to day I cope pretty well with that, it does come up to the surface and bubble over occasionally. My life is far from perfect, but it could be a lot worse, so I'm feeling more ready for the week ahead and hoping after this post I'm inspired for blogging this week.  I have missed these posts and I do catch myself thinking "ooh, they'd be good shoes to style or that would go well with...", so I guess it was only natural I would come back to TSGSI.
