Join Me For A Masterclass In Shoe Shopping! x

Hi there Gals, at a time when women everywhere usually pound the pavements in search of that perfect pick me up, to help them endure the long winter, myself included!I find myself drawn to a more unusual ways of getting my shopping fix.If I were to tell you that there is a way that you can extend the 10 minuite buzz you get from buying those new sale shoes, that end up languishing in the back of your wardrobe in between being worn up to 1000 times or more, save yourself money, sore feet and the odd twisted ankle.  Would you perhaps let your piggy bank gain a few of those extra pounds that it lost durring the sales and breath a huge sigh of relief and open your arms wide to the latest in the more does equal more philosphy when shopping if approached in the right way.  

No gals this is not a Style Statement, but a piggy who dearly needs to gain a few extra pounds, take pity and instead of a shoe fund, save for an experience to get dressed up for, to share with your favourite friends.

Help that compulsive Shoe diva take control, by chaneling your energy in a slightly different direction, instead of seeing that favourite pair of designer shoes as a one season wear. Choose them as you would a painting or sculpture in other words for the sheer beauty! Gals, you  know how frustating it is when your out sale shopping for shoes and the wrong sizes are always the bargins!This simply does not apply here,big or small, designer or non designer shoe candy are all created equal!!! Don't worry if you won't be able to walk in them without falling flat on your face!Because the beauty HERE IS is you don't need to walk in them!! Instead invest in a gorgeous plinth, pedestal or box frame and treat yourself to your own purpose built shoe art installation, that you can enjoy for years to come!Giving you a lift, not bunions every time you walk past it! Sharon xx p.s if any of  you do put any of this week Style advice into action, PLEASE email me a picture @ sharonstyle@fsmail.net, I would love to see your handy work/ share hereHope you enjoy my round up of shoe art to help inspire you!

My favorite is the trio of shoes and that sky high red high is fabulous. You are so right, there is nothing beautiful about uncomfortable shoes - ouch!

Hello Sharon,
Thanks for stopping by!
I'm so glad you did and thank you for the lovely comments!! I am so glad I met you, YOUR blog is amazing. I love the pink roses on the skirt and the tulip shoes. As you can tell from my blog, I love pink, roses and all flowers. So, of course I would hone right in on those items!
I can't wait to see what you have in store for the new year. I am following you now. I see we have a friend in common, my girl over at Bonjour Romance. Mimi is a doll!!
Speaking of friends, I see your sweet friend,Harry. He is so cute :). Do you have or did you have an Airedale? I just love them, but you MUST have the patience AND a sense of humor to be their Mum. Oh the stories I could tell.
I may have to do a post one day soon.
I'll be back again soon. Have a great day, Sharon!
