Shoeniverse Presents - ASOS Week (Kicking off with the best of the sale footwear)

Welcome to the very first 'ASOS Week' on Shoeniverse, and what better way to kick it all off than with my personal picks from the footwear bargains. ASOS is a site that I have used since around 2000 (I think!) back when it was still called 'As Seen On Screen' and focused largely on celebrity inspired clothing. Since its inception it's grown to be a truly staple online brand in its own right, as well as stocking many well known and designer brands. It's one of my go-to staples, and I hope that you enjoy seeing my shopping picks this week.

£50.00 NOW £27.00

Boots by ASOS Collection

Meet My New Boots - Carvela 'SLAM' Biker Boots

These gorgeously wearable heeled biker boots called 'Slam' from Kurt Geiger Carvela were my major sale purchase in the January sales. I've been wearing them for around a week to work and they fit true to size, the sole is exceptionally anti-slipping, and the rounded toes are mesmerisingly shiny. They are soft and comfortable, and with subtle solver tone hardware and funky wrap around straps, they really are a beautiful everyday boot.

The only slight pain is that the zip is under the straps - both buckles need to be done up to wear the boots, and both need to be undone to comfortably take them off. That being said they are worth the hassle, and I'd highly recommend them for quality of construction, softness of leather, and they are STUNNING to look at.

I've been pairing them with my sale leggings for an easy workwear style, teamed with longline vests and tattoos well on show. I'm lucky in that my numerous, highly visible inkings are not an issue for my place of work, and the heating is so fierce that it's like Summertime all year around! Then these get me home safe and dry even in the dullest and wettest of Winter days (and we had a few of those last week)...

Fancy giving them a try? Then take a closer look right here.

Shoeniverse Shops - What I Bought in the Sale

Welcome to the first proper post of the year - and how has 2015 been treating you so far? I'm back to work today after almost 2 weeks off / at home which has been blissfully lovely, and before I headed back I did more than a few spots of online shopping just to add some more basics to make getting dressed in a half-asleep state that little bit easier.

One of my revelations in 2014 was a pair of Galaxy-print leggings from I'm usually extremely sceptical of budget clothing, especially in the pants / leggings department, however they were on sale, looked cute and I thought they would be worth a punt. To my surprise they are incredible. Extremely thick and stretchy and not even slightly see-through. This then further prompted me to buy a pair with skeleton print front and back (so cute!) and the ones that you see below which arrived yesterday.

The scuba leggings are very soft, stretchy and again completely opaque. They are fine with a jumper or vest and look fine worn as leggings because they are not super tight - I bought the S/M size. The middle ones are see-through a little - and you can see this in the pictures below - but they are absolutely the most comfortable leggings ever, and they look fantastic with a nice All Saints jumper dress and boots.

So this is what I bought and will be wearing this week - what bargains have you picked up in the sales this year?

Shoeniverse Shops the Sales - Save up to 60% at the Clarks Winter Sale

We all need a pair of comfy everyday boots from time to time - and this is where Clarks come into their own. They've long shrugged off the image of 'school shoes of choice' and their women's flats and winter boots are well worth a look. Try the ones below - this is my pick of the online sale.

Merrigan Dane

Black Nubuck Womens Casual Boots
Was £69.99 Now £34.99

It's all about the essential biker influence with these women's Chelsea boots, plus our designers have thrown in 8cm of height and a lightweight block heel. Rich black nubuck lends a premium yet low key look and the elastic vent detail and inside fastening zip make Merrigan Dane a breeze to wear. Clarks Plus dual density cushioning ups the super-comfy all day feel.

Carousel Ride

Oxblood Patent Womens Smart Shoes
Was £29.99 Now £14.99

Women's ballerina-styled pumps in glossy oxblood red patent non-leather, classic yet contemporary with grosgrain binding and a cute string bow trim. The perfect style to dress up or down for everyday and into evening wear. You'll love the added assurance of Cushionsoft underfoot comfort.

Licorice Rock

Black Leather Womens Smart Boots
Was £150.00 Now £120.00

Making a connection with classic equestrian roots and this season's subtle punk influence, Licorice Rock are knee high women's boots executed with an elegant twist. Smooth black leather plus underfoot cushioning and a leather stacked heel at 3cm add to the premium feel while an inside fastening zip and minimal hardware keep the styling sleek. Perfect with leggings or shifts for on and off duty looks.
