Little boots

Well as I mentioned the other day, my favourite shopping/fashion app of late has to be ShopStyle, which you can read about here.  Anyway, last month I thought I'd have a look for some boots.  I'd been after some brown ones for while, as an alternative to the black ones I already owned.

As I scrolled along the ShopStyle app I came across a pair of Firetrap Veloce boots!  I liked the mix of materials and the weathered texture of the leather, which I feel gives them a more rugged and expensive look.  Best of all the boots were on sale for £14.00, down from £95.00 - a massive 85% OFF!!!

I clicked on the link which took me straight to the USC website where they were being sold.  I kept my fingers cross but assumed the worst: they wouldn't have any left in my size.  But to my surprise, the curse of having tiny feet finally came up trumps as the only sizes left were 6 or 11 - HURRAY!!!

My dad says you can tell the quality of a pair of shoes by the soles, and I think after traipsing around town several times in them already they're sure holding up rather well.  I have to say they're really comfortable and have become an immediate wardrobe staple, especially it becomes ever colder outside!

Oh and I did I mention I saw a sister pair called Firetrap Verb boots that were also on sale?  Yep these bargain boots, although slightly more expensive at £21.00, were also available in a size 6 and marked down from £95.00 too!  I have to admit I'm a sucker for a bit of brogue detailing.

I was left in a bit of a dilemma trying to choose which to buy, but my sister gave me some sage advice "Why are you even trying to pick one, just buy both!".  Occasionally that girl comes out with pure gold.

So as you'll have already guess, and will see below, I opted to buy both pairs of boots.  In total it cost me £39.99 with postage which is what I'd normally shell out on a single pair.  If you consider that at full price the boots would have cost me £194.99, I managed to save myself a massive £155.55 - go me!

Right folks that's about it for today, but hopefully it demonstrates what a fab app ShopStyle is.  And remember this isn't a sponsored post, it's just something I thought I'd share because I've found it to be really useful - I love my little boots!

If you too have managed to snag any bargains or know of any good shopping/fashion apps be sure to let me know - you can never have too many shoes, right?

Take care,
