So I've been a bad blogger and a bad challengette... with no shoes rescued in the last two weeks I'm definitely lagging behind. It's those damned full length photos Shoeperwoman insists on and the associated trauma that's to blame. I see other people's photos taken with stunning backdrops and poses that would put the inhabitants of Vogue and Marie Clare to shame and I wonder just how the hell they do it? Do they have secret SWAT teams with hair, make up and photography experts on hand or what? It makes me somewhat ashamed of my living room backdrops taken with the self timer, which, in conjunction with life getting in the way, has put me off a little. I promise to get back on the horse this week if possible though. Just keep those expectations low please!

Meanwhile, back at the ranch, it is Shoesday today so these are my shoes:

Nude (well sort of peachy) ballerina flats from Dunnes Stores. They are most comfortable.


  1. Haha I feel the same! Although mostly I just love looking at how creative everyone is. Think of it this way, the challenge has given you inspiration :-)

    I do try and be a little interesting, but as it is now winter down here and it is TEEMING DOWN with rain, my balcony shots will be no more :-(

    In other news, those flats are the sweetest thing!

  2. Those are fun flats! I love the bows and the color.
    Don't give up on the challenge! :) I like to see your posts and shoes. I know you have more awesome shoes to show us... ;)

  3. I know what you mean about the photos. I'm always amazed at what lovely backdrops and photos style bloggers seem to come up with. I thought that it must be a lot easier for people who have more time at home (like students, people who work from home & stay at home mums), but I've since learned that some of my favorite bloggers have full time jobs! It's a bit depressing, because I don't know how they find the time to go out & scout good locations let alone go there for photos every day!

    I try to tell myself that the shoe challenge is more about the shoes (and outfits) anyway. So don't give up - there are a lot of us in the same boat! Your shoes are really cute, by the way :)

  4. I'm a fan of balerinas ! These are so cute!
