I’m getting my shopping mojo back…I think? I still can’t get very enthused about much, I blame the search for (the perfect) green sequin dress before Christmas. It sent me over the edge. The £100 Debenhams gift voucher remains firmly in tack, in my back pocket. Listen to this… I actually considered putting it towards a new hoover! Things are really that bad.
Today however I’ve picked up a fab little bargain in the form of a pair of flat snake skin lace-up shoes. They were all of £8.00 from Primark!
I love them
I’m probably late to the table ( I usually am) but I do love myself some snake-skin and have been hankering after a pair of shoes for a while now.
As you are probably aware I love my leopard print, with Jackets, boots and dresses making up the majority of my wardrobe (along with denim dresses!) but what it lacked was some sssssss -snake (See what I did there!)
Until today that is!
I had seen these beauties from Aquazzura a while ago, probably last summer if I’m honest (they appear to have sold out everywhere) but at £224.00 that’s all I did look… or rather lust after.
I actually have a similar looking pair in plain black from New Look. I love anything that ties around the ankle, I find them very flattering. The only negative with this particular pair – they make my feet look HUGE.
I’m only a size 6 but while wearing them my feet have been referred too as two barges, clowns feet, flippers … by the Mr of course. Who else??!!
But yes… I think I actually prefer my Primarni ones. At least my feet look a normal size.

Or what about these …
H & M have some great little loafers in that would look great with my skinnies . Yours for only £9.99. Great price.
Not shoes but worth a Mention are these beauties. River Island Pointed Boot in Snake – £65.00.
A bit too shiny and new looking for my liking . They will look so much better when they’ve been worn a few times. Lived in I think they call it. I hate anything that looks too done, I always have. When I was younger I would get new shoes, I’d screw them up, scuff them anything to take away the ‘nasty’ newness. Mum says I was and still am a heavy footed filthy beggar…
She just doesn’t understand.
I only popped into Primark on my way to Next to collect the jeans I had ordered on Saturday. My plan was just to have a quick look what was on offer, if anything?
These shoes literally popped off the shelf and said “hello lady – buy me” For that price it was a no brainer. They’re not even in the sale, this is the full price?!
and so it was Tracey got her first pair of snake skin shoes and the world was a better place 🙂
I’m pleased to report that I’m really happy with the relaxed boyfit jeans from Next – £26.00. I saw them on their instagram feed a couple of days ago and decided I had to have them. You know like you do…it becomes your soul mission in life. Tell me that it’s not just me??? (Note to self shopping mojo is definately returning)
I find Next jeans, along with River Island, are a really good fit.
If anything these jeans are ever so slightly too big (around the waist) but I think that’s more to do with them being boy fit than anything else as I’m still sporting my mince pie belly from Christmas. I plan to wear them with a belt so its not a problem.
Boyfriend fit jeans – Next . Snakeskin shoes – Primark
Suffice to say I love them and (I think) they look great with my new shoes.
I’m proposing to wear them both with my white Alice Temperley pussy bow blouse, grey belt and a grey or black jacket. I’d jazz it up with a pink or turquoise handbag and accessorises.
I also think these jeans will look fabulous with heels as pictured above. Luckily I have loads of heels!
I’ll have a play later but I’m sure the choices will be endless…I’m already liking the idea of them teamed with my (newish) ASOS plum victoriana lace blouse.
It’s a shame its forecast bloody snow tomorrow!
