Trusty Blacks

For a very long time I've had a pair of trusty blacks, I don't really go out "on the razzle" very often so I don't like to shell out on heels that might only be tottered about in once. So instead I always buy a staple pair that go with everything and pretty much wear them continuously until they fall apart/get so much drink chucked over them they disintegrate. I thought I had three generations of these to photograph but sadly the grandmother of trustys had to be laid to rest after she turned grey and wasn't too sturdy on the heels.
Here is my latest edition to the cause.

Left: Reliable trusty - Matalan
Right: Newfound Trusty that might hurt me - Newlook




Matalan has actually been the breeding ground for two pairs of going out shoes for me but I decided to live dangerously and try Newlook this time. Well that and I had some vouchers. I was planning on wearing them on Saturday for a night out but I'm not sure if the platforms make me look more like a lady of the night with the bodycon skirt I had prepared. hmmmm.

In other mid week news, the most exciting part of my day today was seeing kit kat chunkies on offer for a pound, winner.

  1. Love the New Look trusty! I really like the platform sole. Always manages to convince me that they won't hurt as much. Hope they aren't too painful.

    p.s. you can't go wrong with a Kit-Kat chunky for a quid! x x

  11. Aww, love the idea of the grandmother of all trusties. Bought into a similar idea recently but it turns out the heels are so high that I can barely totter in them... Oops!

  16. I have those shoes and wore them to a garden party which lasted pretty much the whole night and my fett were fine. I did wear them in around the house before though, mainly because I come up to like 5'9 in them and feel tall xxxxxxxx

  18. They both look lovely! New Look heels are very hit & miss. I have one pair that feels like walking on slightly elevated cotton wool, and another pair that made my feet hurt so much I sat down in a club and confessed to my friend that I was certain my feet were bleeding inside my shoes. (They weren't, but wow pain!) Hope yours are super comfy!

  19. I do exactly the same thing, you can't go wrong with a good pair of black heels! My current ones are looking a bit worse for wear, so I think I'll have to replace them soon. New Look are my fave for heels, they never hurt my feet!

  26. Discovering terrible credit military vehicles advances at practical interest costs is not as hard as securing awful credit car advances for successive men. The reason for existing is basically on the grounds that vehicles account organizations spend significant time in supplying auto advances for military especially for terrible credit officers are educated of the truth that for a military organization safeguarding a decent record while in vigorous obligation is imperceptibly testing as they need to consistently move around and get positioned at unmistakable spots and in like manner individuals from the military have a rapidly changing way of life which prevents their capability to balance out their FICO score. payday loans chicago
