Winter has crept up on me this week and left me and my boy with the sniffles. With this harsh winter fast approaching in Manchester, and the recent departure of my family to the warm southern hemisphere (Australia to be exact) I felt like I needed a little cheer up, cue Ebay!
I am now the proud owner of these boots, purchased yesterday for a very reasonable £31 (including p&p). I literally cannot wait for the postman to come.
I've wanted a pair of lace-up wedge boots for aggggees, but I'm so picky, did I want black, or brown? Leather or suede? Too much choice left me bootless and despairing. If I'm honest I knew exactly what pair I wanted, a looovvely pair of black peep-toed shoe boots from Pierre Hardy at Gap, I'd seen them on the Grazia 'waiting list' back in August, but at £85 knew they were out of my reach. I then went onto lust over a pair of brown suede shearling cuffed pair from Urban Outfitters, again too expensive. I nearly bought a pair for £35 in River Island, but the sizing failed me, curse my size 7/8 'canoes' (as my boyfriend has affectionately dubbed them). Then I found them, a fab cheap pair from H&M (gotta love having the Swedish giant online now huh?!), available in black or brown, only £29.99, click click, in the basket they go, along with this season's must have aviator jacket.
But, Voni, you haven't shown us these H&M purchases? Quite right, well observed. And you want to know why, what stopped me? Oh only the fact that when my little beaming face went to checkout I was told neither item were available currently and I'd have to wait until late November for them to be dispatched! Well needless to say crest-fallen wasn't the word.
For now though all is well, I have some lush and very functional boots, which were just as affordable, on their way to me as we speak, HURRAH!
Also I saw this necklace at 'Temporary Secretary' online (£16) and just had to have it!
There are loads more cute little dolls house miniatures really cheap on ebay which would look darling hanging on a chain, or even glued onto a ring or brooch back, like china teacup and saucers, cuckoo clocks and teddy bears! Go on, have a go at making something for yourself, you can always check out Temporary Secretary for inspiration (or just to buy something ready-made!), but make sure you let me know if you do! Ever made something yourself to save some money?
