Thank you Elface for photos!

The other day I had to wait 2 hours in the bitter cold for my darling boyfriend, ok fine it was of my own choosing but don’t we blame the boyfriend for everything. So I wandered from school onto Oxford street and then into Carnaby street – seeing that I was on a shopping ban I don’t know why I chose to take the shopping route when I could’ve let it all swish by above my head by getting into the tube… but I had 2 hours to burn, you see. I was actually looking for the Borders on Oxford Street to get a book to read, but found disappointingly in its place, Next - Men’s Women’s & Children’s Fashion, which if I remember correctly has another branch just 150m down the road. So I proceeded into Carnaby street in search for a bookstore or anything really that doesn’t involve useless shopping, and had to come to a conclusion that Oxford Street & Carnaby Street is by far the most brainless areas ever.

Then it was starting to get colder (why am I rambling?) so I decided to ditch the books and picked a warm looking shop (I can’t explain what a warm-looking-shop is but they generally have sofas… and shoes…) and arbitrarily walked into a particularly colourful store. Now, no offence, but I personally do not like the brand image of Irregular Choice, and most of the times their shoes seem like they’re on crack but at that moment it ticked the sofa + shoes = warmth boxes, so heck yeahhh. There I met these pair, these ACNE Atacoma-esque, even Balenciaga-esque (just to offend someone) wedges but a FUN version. What can I say, my irregular choice of store in my pursuit of warmth got me to my new favourite shoes.

(What, what shopping ban?)

p.s sorry for the über-ramblage.

  1. Dude, those shoes are more: Emma Cook meets Alexander Mcqueen/Gaga, with a little Balenciaga thrown in for good measure. I usually hate irregular choice, but they are insanely perfect. Yes Shini, again I need your shoes- now who’s making who want to shop?!

    PP x

    P.S was the store one of the lovelies that has heating at the door? Lovely Jubly.

  2. Wonderful shoes! And they look extra great when paired with your DIY tights. I love it when you find the most perfect item in a shop you normally avoid – it makes it feel almost like destiny ;)

    And thank you so much for your very helpful reply to my e-mail, I have a feeling I’ll be getting serious with WordPress over the holidays. It’s so wonderful when you contact a blogger with a great blog, and they turn out to be as friendly and charming as they seem in their blog (because that’s not always a given). Again, thank you, darling!

  3. I love the entire outfit! Your shoes are amazing!

  10. I wish we had interesting shoes here… instead we just have Aldo. Eeerg, not all of us enjoy wearing stilettos every day, if only i could find some nice wedges, my life would be complete.

  12. those are INCREDIBLE! they are BETTER than the atacomas. yes, i said it.

  13. The shoes are amazing!!!!!

  14. you are so right about Oxford St. and Carnaby St. Oxford Street alone has three H&M’s!!!!!! And I went to EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM because my friend made me. o_O your tights are so cool, btw!

    OMG
    i’ve been following you for a while but never commented before…
    but this outfit is simply totally incredibly and all sorts of good ending in -ly AMAZING
    also, never thought i’d like an irregular choice pair of shoe, but those are candy for the feet.
    also, i’m gonna copy your tights, searching for your diy right now.

    One of the few rare “negative” comments! Cherish the moment!

    The shoes are ugly. Really don’t like them :(
    Uggly-buggly shoes!
    (need I mention the wabbling caused by the curvature of the soles?)

  17. The shoes are great, are they easy to walk in though??

  18. It’s hard at the beginning but once you get used to it its soo comfortable because the heel isn’t too steep inside the wedges :D Only difficulty is that the whole thing is quite narrow so any uneven footing and wobble wobble you go on the street. I fell the other day and scratched my knee but don’t tell anyone.

  19. Uggly buggly muggly snuggly, come and huggle me.

  20. You are so pretty. And I love that first shot. Beautiful.

  21. i saw these on the site a while ago and didn’t really like them..

Lovely photographs, and I enjoy your writing. i was in london a mon th ago and toddled along to find my favourite magazine shop (ie borders on oxford st, where i;d bought a vast supply of fashion magazines a year previously, the best shop where i live only has about 15 quite common titles to chose from) and it had VANISHED!! I dragged my boyfriend the entire length of the long long road to see if i had missed it, but nope, it had gone. So sad xx
