Outfit: Shoeper Challenge #54 and Some Super High Heels






RI blue-black boot

I stuck with the jeans and black theme for another day, but I did decide to brave the ridiculously high heeled boots today. I mentioned yesterday that they were an eBay bargain: well they were. I paid £18.50 for them, brand new, and the label still stuck to the bottom said £150! I have some back up flats in my bag, just in case the heels get too much for me.


Last night I did the Tesco shopping, then sat down with a cup of tea to relax a bit. I was flicking through the TV channels and found The Carpenters in concert on BBC4. I noticed there was a documentary about them on afterwards so we watched that too. I don’t watch BBC4 very often, but I love how they will come up with some gems occasionally – an Eagles concert from the 70s, documentaries about the building of the motorway network or the National Grid (I know those sound boring, but they were actually fascinating).


This afternoon I need to call at ASDA on my way home for a dessert for tomorrow lunchtime. I have my parents coming over for lunch, then in the evening (weather permitting) it’s Caribbean Night at one of the pubs in the village. Steel band – yay!

  1. Those shoe are perfect with the jeans. I'm not sure what else they would work with but they are perfect with that outfit. I'm glad you ventured out in them. Were you able to walk all day in them? And congrats on the bargain!!

  2. Hmm... now that's a challenge to work these into another outfit! And no, I didn't last the day in them - I walked to the deli on the corner at lunchtime, then had to admit defeat and put on my emergency flats. I spent the rest of the day feeling very short!
