Oxfam Spack Shoe

I know that this blog is usually reserved for the "wonderful world of brogues" but i think you should also be allowed to see the darker side of the brog world, which is where these are from.
This is the orthopaedic brog as found for £7.99 in Oxfam, Henley on Thames.
"where’s my spack shoe"!!!! Here it is....

Bloody Barbie Brogs

Waking up this beautiful Saturday morning (all be it slightly hung over), I decided that my Barbie brogs would be a great accompaniment to my Harrods 1960’s school uniform dress and as I was of to Hampsted Heath ponds (to meet a very hung over Phil and Iso, who had been drinking rum until 4 am) thought they would be perfect walking attire, how wrong was I. Feeling the burn of a newly forming blisters on both heels I decided that a blister was a small price to pay for such great summer shoes, that was until half way across the heath the burn turned into a sting of wasp like proportion, and this occurred.
ohh check out those cornbeef legs ummmmmmmm

New barbie brog

After the sad loss of my beautiful grey Dunlop trainer brogues (I’m pretty sure I lent them to someone with aching heels after a London fashion week party at the RA, being the stupid good Samaritan I am) I stumbled across some beauteous Barbie Brogs for the bargain price of £6, admittedly they are a size 6 (Iso and I are both from the mind set that our large size 7’s can be squeezed and bound into any brog, whatever the size so long as it’s beauts) but I have taken out the inner sole to give a little more space.

Dunlop RIP

Booo I have officially come to terms with the fact I will never see my grey trainer brogs again, they would have looked beauts this autumn (grey leather being the hot autumnal trend). My whoever stole/found them enjoy them as much as i did.

Kickers Brogues

My friend Hannah recently bought these red beauties from Schuh. They have a slight cowboy heel and I recks they would look great with dark indigo jeans and a shirt, or retro dress and denim jacket.
They also come in patent (!) black and white two tone leather. I think Hannah is going to buy those too! A girl after our own hearts.
