Friends is the Right Places - Thank You Jo Jo! x

When I want something I can't get - I'm like a woman possessed.  My poor friends and family get 'SOS' emails with price, style name/number, stores near them, all the details until I find what I want.  When time was less of an issue for me, I would actually call around stores across the UK to get exactly what I wanted.  (I still have a Christmas tree in Bournemouth that was 75% off, sorry Lizzie, I will come and get it).  So after I waited online for the M&S sale last Tuesday and found that some of my lovely readers who are size 3.5's had obviously ignored my warning that these babies were mine, they were sold out in seconds.  So the following day I was on a mission.  Poor Jo who happens to work very close to the Metro Centre was sent a text to get in there ASAP for me.  By Monday (yesterday) they are with me!  I really do have fab friends.  £65 down to £35 - I LOVE!











My only question is - do I cut that strap at the back?  Does it make them a little 'cowboy'?  I've worn them already today as I've been poorly so they were the perfect pick me up, amazing what a new pair of shoes can do for you!  I will leave the strap on for a while as once I cut it, there's no going back.  Did anyone else manage to get any of Marks and Spencer's fabulous shoes in their sale?

PS Kurt Geiger sale starts on line midnight tonight!

  1. Great boots I would def cut strap, look like a potential health hazard too, it would be quite a freak accident to grab you by the heels, but it got Achilles so you never know!!

  7. I actually like the strap too but yes, if it's a potential hazard then might be better off - rather that than a broken leg!
    And you are more than welcome - I like going shopping for you - I'm not spending my own money but still get the buzz of the shop and a great find, even if I don't get to wear them!! On standby for the next text..... haha

  9. Glad you found some Avril! & thanks again Jo Jo. Now you've all got me confused - more in favour of strap at the moment, so leaving on for a little longer. Only managed one outing in them this week due to sickness so hoping further wear will make me decide!
    Net-a-Dress - M&S just launched a 20% off event, Next, Whistles, Jaeger, Debenhams, Topshop and House of Fraser have all got some great sales on line at the moment. x

  10. Completely gutted, I looked at these online and didn't think they looked that great, however seeing them in the flesh, on here, I have changed my mind. Oh shit I want some!

  11. To be fair the pictures don't do them justice, they do look a little cumbersome but not in the flesh. What size are you? Will keep my eye out! x
