Shoes: Irregular Choice Santa's Ninth
Hello, today is Sunday, the final day of my extra Shoesday Tuesday posts this week. Today I bring you the wonderful new Santa heel for 2016. You may remember a few years ago I bought Dreamy, the very first Santa shaped heel by Irregular Choice. I'd loved the gnome heel which had come out earlier that year, so the festive version ended up becoming one of my most worn shoes! Last year, the Santa heel returned, this time with furry reindeer uppers, complete with metallic antlers and googly eyes. Last Friday the newer variation launched and I'll admit I felt really guilty contemplating buying them when they were so similar to the year before. Now I've got them in my hands though, I can see a lot of differences between the two and besides that, I fell head over heels for them, so there's no way I'm returning them!

Shoes: Irregular Choice Secret Squirrel
I'm back again for another squirrel instalment! How are you enjoying the daily Shoesday posts so far? These are the final squirrel heels I tried, so far you've seen Furry O Nutty which I'm keeping and Nibbles McNutty that I'm returning. This pair, Secret Squirrel, I really want to keep too, even although I told myself I could only have one. I knew it would be a hard decision. They are indeed another green pair, but once more completely different in style and the shade of green.

Shoes: Irregular Choice Furry O Nutty
Hello lovelies. Yes, it's not Tuesday, but I'm bringing you Shoesday styles all week long. "Get in", as my nephew would say! These are the second squirrel heels I have to show you, Nibbles McNutty from yesterday are here. This pair are called Furry O Nutty. Like seriously, can we talk about how brilliant these names are? I want them for that alone, without even seeing the shoe! Furry are unlike anything else in my collection, so definite keepers for me (my family were pretty adamant about it tbh). That's not to say I haven't seen something like them before. I'm going to put a photo up on Instagram later, it'll make you chuckle, but I basically rocked this style in 1984. As slippers of course, not shoes! Don't they remind you of baffies? I'm sure my Granny had very similar ones to these, minus the squirrel heel obviously!

Shoes: Irregular Choice Nibbles McNutty
Hello, hello. I'm so excited that I've managed to blog three days in a row! Shoesday Tuesday is my favourite type of blog post because I used to love my regular OOTD/SOTD posts, so now I'm no longer able for that, this is the substitute. So yeah, I'm pretty excited to be revealing a new pair of shoes to you on a daily basis. I still have plenty more posts to start off next year and the remainder of this one, so no worries about using them all up here. Ok, so squirrels are the latest character heel instalment from Irregular Choice. As much as I love to see new interpretations of classic characters, it's always completely thrilling to see brand new animals or people. The squirrels are reasonably low, more along the lines of lambs, pandas, flamingo than the deer or bunnies and unicorns and so there's no platform on any of the 8 available colourways. There's three different styles and I bought one from each on Friday and somehow managed to pick the green colourway in each style! Well if it ain't broke...! I'm not keeping them all, I just couldn't decide online and wanted to see them in person.

Shoes: Irregular Choice Sparkling Slipper (Cinderella)
I didn't want to say anything yesterday, until I knew it was achievable, but I'm aiming to bring you Shoesday posts every day this week! I'm still dealing with the Photobucket/image hosting issue, so am trying to do an hour of that a day (re-uploading all of those photos). It's slow going (there's no way an hour a day will get it finished by August, but it's all the time I have right now) and monotonous especially as I'm just covering old ground and constantly uploading and re-uploading the same photos. So I've had to pause The Shoe Girl Styles It posts for now as they are just too time consuming to manage every week, so I figured I'd treat you elsewhere! Plus, I have tonnes of shoes to get through and it'll literally be Christmas before I finish Cinderella and show you the new squirrel and Santa heels. So I had a mass try-on yesterday, photographing them all, which was the hard (physical) part, so hopefully I'll manage to post them all this week for you. There's a lot to talk about regarding sizing on those new ones, so I wanted to do it while they were current.
