Shiny new shoes

Outfit inspired by AW12's androgynous and heritage trends: checked trousers, oversized blazer, patent brogues

My name’s Becky and I’m a brogue-aholic. The facts are, they’re a) practical, b) cute, c) versatile. As a result I have flat, heeled, black, brown, and silver glittery pairs, and the latest addition to the family are these patent cuties from Clarks. I’m mostly wearing them with androgynous pieces with feminine twist – in this case a sheer t-shirt, obnoxiously pink lipstick/nails, and undone hair.

Another addiction of mine is online shopping (just ask the receptionists at my office) however I do like to think I’m smart about my spending: I never, ever click the ‘purchase’ button without looking for a discount code first. One of my must-check sites is MyVoucherCodes, which has codes for fashion, beauty, homewares, holidays…basically anything and everything (they also have printable vouchers that can be used in-store.)

They kindly sent me these beautiful new brogues, which only cost £39.99 using their 20% off Clarks discount code (usual price £49.99)! Do you need any more of a reason to go shoe shopping? ;)

What I wore: Clarks ‘Hamble Oak’ brogues* | Topshop checked trousers | Zoa t-shirt (via TK Maxx) | Vintage black blazer | American Apparel leather clutch | Astley Clarke friendship bracelet* | Louise Gray for Topshop lipstick in Legend | Essie nail polish in Castaway

    “Sensible shoes” as my mum would call these. I love brogues myself and have been wanting a shiny patent pair for a while :) Those trousers are great too Becky!

    Soooo chic!
    And I Love the SHOES :D

  • Kiki

    Oh, those are fantastic. Sopmehow, I always like them better on other people than on myself. I think I’m far too dumpy/rounded to be able to pull brogues off

    I like to think that I’m a smart shopper too… I always search every store I can for the best version of that one item I really want! Example: Right now I really want some gray over the knee stockings. I think I’m going to have to go with ASOS. Marked down to $15 and still thick!

  • Megan

    This outfit is so perfect, love every little detail! You wear brogues so well though, so it’s not surprising you’re addicted to them! ;)
    I’ve been wanting a pair for a while too, but never found any that were quite right. I was in Kurt Geiger the other day though & saw the most amazing pair by Carvela… Oxblood glitter with black trim… Like Dorothy shoes for tomboys! So perfect, if only they weren’t so expensive!
