See pom pom. Try pom pom.
And they were better than I thought they would be because at the end of the day, pompoms (and lots of them at that) on your feet are a little weird (in my eyes). Which leads me on to a style steal post which I haven't done for a while.
So what have we here?
Do we like a bit of Marant? I love a bit of Marant. And I do love the look of the Marant Jools eyelet sandals but the price of them makes my eyelets water (#sorrynotsorry). So I stumbled across the Victor eyelet sandals instead which are certainly a lot more affordable at a fraction of the price. Full leather and under £30. That's a lot lot lot more affordable!
And pompoms. I saw the pompoms making an appearance last year and thought - not for me. But they are for some people. I can't vouch for the Elina Linardaki sandals and the quality but the Zara ones which are at half the price are very comfortable and very pretty on. I tried them on for a giggle and surprised myself by actually liking them. There goes the moral of you don't know till you try. Or you could get jiggy with a glue gun and a bag of pompoms from Hobbycraft on a pair of old sandals of your own!
And the Gucci loafers. Oh the Gucci's. Yes I love. No I can't afford. End of. Or is it ...? Well Aquila are doing a rather nice bronze version in a very similar style. I have to admit that I actually prefer the bronze leather to the gold which makes them a little more wearable but for a style steal - I think they're pretty good.
To be honest, they're all pretty good - it just depends on how minted or skinted you are.
