Geek Chic part 2 - Up With The Clark's!!!

Hi Gals, hope your having fun this weekend, welcome back to part two of Geek Chic, Ok once upon a time there was a little girl of about 12 who had very odd duck shaped feet, her mum wanted to make sure her feet were healthy so bought her good quality shoes from clarks, sensible brown lace up miss marple style, that the girl thought were blah and used to swap for strappy shoes from her school satchel with a spindly heel as soon as she left home!

Now whilst I realise that these accessories are super lady like cool now, they deffinately were not back in the day and my brown leather lace ups were no way as sophisticated as these suede chocolate beauties above, are you feeling my teen angst yet?

So how does the story end? Well the girl has grown up and Clarks shoe shop has turned into a beautiful Swan of a shop, selling comfy shoes with an edge. Over two season's ago I bought two pair's of neutral toned shoe's in the sale. The first pair these boots from Clarks, clog shaped fronts, check, double buckle's which tap into the hot aviator trend, check, in a nude colour check and guess what I reckon a hybrid clog and aviator boot in nude with a dippped heel, is even more on trend now, than two seasons ago! Now that's value for money!   

 My 2nd pair of sale bargins, bought two seasons back also, these cone heel peeptoe shoes in mushroom suede from Topshop, cone heels are making a big come back and well truth be told I would just wear them anyway, for there oldy worldy charms and luxe feel! Any Sale Tales from your part of the world, to astound and delight Fabulous Followers of My Passport to Style? please tell, we are dying to know!
