Frugal Footwear: Dorothy Perkins
I've been on a search for a good pair of flats for a while now; I've looked online, and in all my high street favourites, but I hadn't experienced that 'I need to have it' vibe when trying on anything work/lunch date/shopping-with-friends appropriate.
It wasn't until late yesterday afternoon when I was passing time waiting for a hair appointment, that I wandered aimlessly into Dorothy Perkins and saw at least ten pairs of shoes that gave me that very vibe I'd been waiting for. Better yet, the store was offering a discount of up to 30% on certain pairs.
These three were the only ones in my size (hands up who has one of the most common shoe sizes in the UK), but I can see myself stopping by the website soon to check what's in stock.
Before I went into DPs, I had popped into Debenhams to mooch around the Topshop concession. After finding nothing of interest, I walked past the shoe section and saw these beauties, branded Miss KG and priced at £19, marked down from £30. I thought to myself, 'if I don't find anything else, I'll come back and buy these'. Lo and behold, I found the exact same pair in DPs at £10.50, marked down from £15.
I'm in love with pointed flats. They seem to make my legs look longer and less stumpy than shoes with rounded toes. This pretty pair were the only ones left in my size, and were marked down to a so-good-I-still-can't-believe-it £6.30, as DPs were having an extra discount on sale items.
A simple pair of black flats can save you at the most crucial of sartorial moments.
This pair was the most expensive of my little shoe haul, at £18 (though, again, they were marked down as part of the discount day to £16.20), but I can see myself getting a huge amount of wear out of these.
The little bows at the back are my favourite touch - just the right amount of girlyness.
