Hello hello! 

Like the new shoes?

Blogging about shoes is definitely a rarity for me, I'm just not that crazy about them to be honest. With all the make-up looks I create and the bright and bold outfits I wear, shoes tend to be more of an afterthought. When it comes to my feet, I'm typically a Primark kinda gal with the odd pair of heels from ASOS as a luxury.

But when I stumbled across these on the Internet, I just knew I'd have to break that habit and splash out. I mean, it's not every day you see a pair of shoes with unicorns for heels is it?! I was one of the lucky ones though as they sold out pretty quickly online, which is no surprise, and they arrived today. They are very unique and unusual looking shoes, but the camera loves them!

I think the main reason I keep my shoe spend down is the fact that, quite simply, I destroy them! I'm not some kind of shoe-sadist sat at home on the floor cutting them with a knife or something, I just tend to walk around quite a lot in my daily life, so whatever's on my feet wears out in quick time. On top of that Manchester is officially, or if not should be, the rainiest city in the UK so water damage isn't just a possibility, it's an inevitability. Unlike your hair or your clothes, a brolly can't protect them from the streams and lakes that form from Mancunian rainwater.

So why did I buy these then? At £115, I saw it as an investment. Something to save for those really special occasions.

 The detailing on the actual heels is divine, a 4¾ inch painted resin Unicorn that reminds me a little bit of the 'Knight' piece from a chessboard, whilst the upper part of the shoe is made from woven black canvas and covered in metallic gold stars. The toe is rounded with a hidden platform to make it a little easier to walk in. Great care has to be taken with the heels though, as the painted resin can be scraped off quite easily.

The shoes are made by none other than Irregular Choice. When I first laid eyes upon them I was convinced that they were behind these wonderful creations, and alas how right I was!

Finding them may be a little difficult at the moment, they're currently sold out on Irregular Choice's own website and pretty much everywhere else on the internet too for that matter. I got lucky and found a pair in my size on Schuh 's site, though they're also now out of stock. Just as well I followed my impulse on this instance, HUZZAH!

I'm looking forward to breaking these babies in at home over the weekend ready to take them out on the town with me! And if worst comes to worst, at least they'll make for some classy book-ends, right?
