Margot



Margot   : Hi, I'm Margot and I'm new round here. What's your name?

Krimble  : Krimble.

Margot   :  Pleased to meet you Krimble.... so what's the owner like then?

Krimble  : A bit dipsy, a bit la la but on the whole not too weird. She has nice feet though.

Margot   : Oh yeah - she's got that weird perfect nail polish thing going hasn't she?

Krimble  : Yup! (rolls non existent eyes).

Margot   : Yup! ( rolls non existent eyes too).

Krimble  : Do you know - you look a bit like me but brown!

Margot   : Yeah - now that you've mentioned it, you look a bit like me but tan!

Krimble  : You have the same heels as me!

Margot   : No - you have the same heels as me!


Sandals at Dawn!


Krimble :  Anyway where are you from?

Margot   : Kurt Geiger. Where are you from?

Krimble  : Kurt Geiger.

Margot   : Spooky man!

Krimble  : Yeah, well spooky man!


If sandals could speak.


I saw the Margot's on the Kurt Geiger website way back in January/February but it was too soon to think seriously about sandals when all around were in boots and the temperatures in single digits. But we had a couple of warm days recently and armed with a discount code for 25% off - I thought it was time to pull the trigger. Besides, I'd tried on numerous pairs in between which hadn't quite cut the mustard in one way or another. Part of me says, I'm being disloyal to my Krimbles but part of me says, the Krimbles will last longer if I don't wear them all the time and I divide my time between the two. Good argument eh? And you've got to love a sandal with the name of Margot don't you? Remember Margo from The Good Life in the seventies? I could just see her in a pair.

The fact that the base of the sandal is identical on both pairs is not lost on me which equates with nice comfy wearing. Because at the end of the day, if the feet ain't happy - I'm not happy.

Last note :

As far as I'm aware - the F&FKG25 code is working on the Kurt Geiger site if anyone is holding out for anything on there at the moment. Seek and ye shall find discount code!

  1. Cute post!

    Come on sunshine - I want to get my sandals out too! I love seeing how you style your Krimbles and these are great too - looks like they will go with lots of outfits;- dresses as well as jeans.

    Maybe if you wore one of each out - they may strike up a conversation in public ... :-) xxx

    1. The sun came last weekend and then it went again and yesterday it poured all day which put pay to the sandals I'd been planning to wear on a night out. Back came some closed toe courts instead. I can't do wet toes.

    1. I love the tan pair soooo much too - I think they must be my favourite sandals of all time. But I thought the dark ones would give me a bit of a different look and besides I think everyone who has been reading this blog since last year must be sick to death of seeing the tan ones on me.

      I keep telling myself that about the shoes - I go through spates of shoe buying and then nothing for ages. Unfortunately, I'm going through one of the buying phases at the moment. Shh!

  3. Can't wait to see them on you. These are the kind of sandals I would walk right on by but now you've highlighted them and when you 'show and tell' I can see a frenzy of orders coming in for them!

    1. I've already worn them on the blog a couple of posts ago but didn't really mention them. See - you're right - you would walk past them but that's what my clothes are like. Not very exciting really :o(

  4. If the style works for you, I'd look for some in black and a pair in red too! :-) Sadly KG shoes simply do not work on me, their sizing is too big and my feet make this sole/heel combo look awful :-( Fortunately sandals feature the least in my shoe collection.

    1. Black sandals - really hard to find that look good on me which I can wear comfortably during the day. I bought a pair last year and I really struggle with them - I think they look really harsh on me. I have red Hasbeens though which have a nod to the seventies about them too.

    1. You have a more dressy look Trea. These are more daytime workhorse sandals. And yes, they seem to go well with my kind of clothes.

    1. I took the pictures and that's what sprung to mind. Spooky and scary to think my mind works like that.

  8. I love your new sandals Sue! Also, this reminds me I need to re-do my pedicure. I'm thinking mint green!

    1. Mint green - hmm. Now that's a colour I've not tried! My current colour - navy. On toes and clothes!

  9. I'm with you about sticking to tried and true anything including shoes. Too bad my See by Chloe sandals are previous seasons. Would've loved to get a pair in black if they have any :(

    1. Yes, your See by Chloe ones are gorgeous. I saw a pair on Ebay not so long ago and in my size but I didn't get them ... I don't need any more tan sandals (or so I keep telling myself as she tries on yet another pair).
