my dream shoes.....the high street homages!

When I win the lottery (I'm ever hopeful of this happening you know!) some of my very first purchases will be these 3 pairs of designer shoes that have all been on my wishlist forever! However if wishes were fishes we'd all be swimin' in riches......and all wearing the real things but there are some jolly good High Street dupes of some of my favourite things!

The Chanel's and Gucci's £££££

So what are your dream shoes....will you be needing a lottery win in order to purchase them? I'm all ears!

ve to say my wish-list shoe purchases all need to be worn barefoot....chances of that happening anytime soon....zilch! I girl can dream though right?!

I guess it'll be back to square one next time, still wrapping up warm, thinking and talking about transitional investments still! ;0)



  1. Some great high street alternative Michelle. I'm also hoping that a dream I had many years ago about winning the lottery comes true....here's hoping!!

    1. Another one of the things on that lottery wish-list Jane is that Stella Mccartney Fallabella that I stroke in Selfridges every time I meet up with you! ;0) xx

  2. I am still pondering the Isabel Marant Dicker boot. I have to say that I lusted after the Acne Jensens for a long time before I bought them. They are THE best things I have purchased in the last couple of years, so worth the money. H xx

    1. Ooh if you can H definitely go for the investment IM dickers....sounds like that would be a smart move if your Acne's have worked so well for you! xx

  3. I absolutely love the Chanel espadrilles, Michelle. If you could just let me know the winning numbers I'll treat myself to a pair! ;-) xx

    1. You and me both Becky.....those espadrilles are top of my lottery wish list!! They are such classics....I could well end up investing in the KG ones this year though! :0) xx

  4. Michelle, I have always lusted over a classic pair of Gucci loafers, and then following that a classic black suede Saint Laurent Escarpin pump, and of course who wouldn't want a pair of Chanel pumps...A lovely young friend of mine picked up the most exquisite pair in a NYC vintage store for about the equivalent of £40, so we can all live in hope?!
    Great outfits too as always!

    1. Oh my goodness Helen.....please don't add to my footwear wishlist woes!! Who wouldn't want a pair of Saint Laurent Escarpin pumps too! I have an alert set up on Vestiaire Collective for the Chanel pumps but they are still usually way out of my budget league....I'll keep trawling though! xx

    Found you on Instagram recently and have added your blog to my Feedly. I'm terribly excited to see what you're going to wear next. You're slayin' this whole game. I bow down.

    1. Wow Ruth....thank you so much, your comment has blown me away! That is so lovely to hear! Mwah! xx

  6. Nicely! But why not lunch your own line of designer shoes, if luck smiles to win the lottery jackpot? I know the chances are slim to nothing, still I tried, thelotter review ... I'll be luckier another day.
