Outfit: Shoeper Challenge #49 and a Sarenza Shoe Ambassador





Valensi Dill Red sandals

A couple of weeks ago, Sarenza contacted me to ask me to become a shoe ambassador for their brand. As it involves free shoes, I was quick to say yes! Sarenza started in Paris about 5 years ago and now have over 300 brands on their site. My funds were sufficient that I could choose two pairs, and the first is the pair you see me wearing today. They are by Valensi and are made from the softest suede and leather. I love the silver detailing around the red and although the heels are high, so is the platform making them a very wearable style. I think they make a great alternative to my beloved wedges, and if you want to grab yourself a pair (they also come in black and tan suede versions) you can find them here.

The second pair I got (as I’m sure you’re all dying to know) was these blue fabric wedges by Mustang shoes:

I’ll talk more about these when I wear them though. And despite having added 3 new pairs of shoes to my collection yesterday (oh yes, there was a third pair – more on those later), I also ditched a couple more pairs for the charity shop to make space for the new ones so my total for the Shoeper Challenge is still hovering around what it was when I started.



So my love affair with all things stripy continues, and I am still loving this top. Did I mention that it has buttons on the sleeves? I love button detailing!


It’s Tesco shop day today so I am hoping that it won’t rain before I get home. I don’t like getting wet!
