Still With The Tags On
Shamefully, I haven't worn the Promod flapper dress, or one of the Promod blouses. I can see myself wearing the dress on my birthday perhaps, and the blouse might even get worn to work.
The Versatile Shoes
I knew I would get a lot of wear out of the grey and white brogues, but I was so unsure about the 'boring' black brogues. Now, I am so glad I bought them! I'm even thinking that I could just put some coloured laces or ribbons on, if I felt they needed jazzing up a bit.
What I Have Learnt
- You can never have enough socks or knitwear.
- Comfortable shoes get worn a lot.
- I probably have enough party dresses now.
- I need to dress smarter for work, to ensure some items get worn.
- I must wear my lingerie sets more!
I am sold on Clarks shoes. Gone are the nightmares of my school years. I want to buy more, including a pair of ballet pumps for summer and a pair of heels for work. Maybe also a 'going out' pair if something suitable is released. Clarks shoes are comfortable, leather, good quality and they come out with some impressive styles these days.
