Thanks Gryffin for the inspiration to start this thread. I am being much more careful with this obsession than usual. I am supposed to be clearing out my wardrobe not adding to it. The walk-in wardrobe in the new house is almost,almost finished, it needs its shoe racks, jewellery drawers, and its mirror for my future WIWs! I'm not too sure when this obsession started, I got a free gift of bronze large stud earrings from a shop I liked maybe about 2000- the shop is long since gone! And bought my mixed metal necklace with bronze in about 2008. So a gradual love I suppose.
When I was checking out metallic shoes for Sal 4 months ago I got a bit obsessed with some of those, and while not right for what she wanted also saw these gorgeous bronze boots ( Hush Puppies Verified bronze suede) and even tried a pair on, can't remember which size. I think they were decently comfortable but not a slam-dunk for comfort- but I suspect I had to try on a size too big as that was what they had instore, and they no longer do? Still available on-line though at 1/4 off. Buying two sizes would be annoying... as not sure which size will fit 5 or 6. Is a 5 a Euro 36? Or is that a 5.5- as I am usually a Euro 36. So I may be in between those sizes and neither would fit!
Meanwhile, on Styletread I have discovered an interesting phenomenon. My black Maria Rossi boots I bought on 1 April and have worn already 64 times, seem to have exactly the same last and type of perforated leather, and notch at the back, as these bronze Beltrami boots. I cannot find from a Google search if it is the same maker. But it must be, right? And the same size- only the zip goes the opposite way and there are two zips on the bronze ones. But maybe they would be better than the heeled ones. They are more expensive than the heeled ones and more than the excellent price I got the black fringed ones for (that was $ NZ 110.) I am not sure if should try both or neither.
Will also give you some eye candy of the many other beautiful bronze shoes I have been tempted by in the past few months. Especially pic 7 as I thought they would be lovely with my new peplum top in pic 8- and at the time they even had a matching bag! But I am not made of money and I thought they looked a bit too mother-of-the-bride-ish. Luckily my size and the matching bag have gone, phew.
Thoughts, advice? Voices of reason??! Cheers x
