Calling all #fbloggers - show me your shoes!

I want to see what you are all wearing, what the best shoes you own are, and why you love them so much. So I've created a short Instagram contest which will have three winners. They will each receive a small surprise gift from Shoeniverse, as well as being able to guest post for the blog and being able to promote their own blog as well!

You will need Instagram for this contest but there are also lots of bonus entries too - come on ladies (and gents) - let's see what pretty things you've been wearing. I will feature my faves in a gallery and then will pick the winners at the start of May.

Show me your Shoes

Shoeniverse Falls in Love! SO McQUEEN! Victoria Booties from French Connection



I know it's SS15 now and I am still bringing you boots. But just look at them! They are screaming McQueen to me and yet are a budget friendly £130.



I AM UTTERLY IN LOVE. There are simply not enough capital letters to explain just how happy these shoes make me. They might just be my favourite ever High Street Hero Heels!



VICTORIA OPEN TOE ANKLE BOOTS
£130.00

Ankle boots aren't just for winter - luxe leather peep-toes will offset spring's relaxed silhouettes with a smart and stylish finish.

Review: Your Dreamcatcher pink loose fitting racerback vest top - plus #COMPETITION you can WIN one for yourself!




I was fortunate enough to be asked by the lovely people at Your Dreamcatcher to once again take a look at one of their new items. As a fitness fanatic and a lifetime lover of pink, I was immediately drawn to the gorgeous soft longline pink vest top which features what I believe to be the ultimate in comfort for workouts - a racer back.

I received the vest two days later and to ensure a true loose fit I ordered a size 10. With a sports bra and crop Nike pants this is just about the perfect kit for running. The material, as I've now come to expect with Your Dreamcatcher is extremely soft and comfortable, and the colour is a soft and feminine blush pink. The cut is long hip length on me (I'm 5ft 7" tall) and is extremely flattering. This would also work well with leggings or jeans for a cosy 'Sunday Morning' vibe - just add some flat silver sandals and you are good to go.

Now, as a confession, I am something of a vest junkie, and so in order that I can pass on a gift to one of the Shoeniverse readers and Facebook Fans, I've decided that I will run a competition for this rather than permanently adding it to my collection. Because who doesn't love a giveaway? We are slowly moving into SS15, and this would be the perfect bikini coverup on holiday too.

The competition will run until Mid May and there are daily entries and lots of ways to enter. Please note that the winner will be announced on Facebook so you will need to be a fan of the Facebook page to see that and to message me your address if you win! Good luck!

Ooh LOOK! New Shoes! Bargain heels for parties or bridesmaids from Peacocks



I was recently asked to become an affiliate partner with Peacocks, and so I thought it was only fair that I took a good look at the new line shoes for SS15 to let you know what I thought. I'm a bit of a shoe snob as you are all probably well aware by now, so I was honestly surprised at how subtle and classy some of their new styles are.

Many of them are under £20 a pair too, making them a really great alternative to packing designer shoes away for a holiday. You can still get glammed up for dinner (or indeed a night out here in Blighty!) without risking anything precious - or simply if you are on a very tight budget. I actually think that either of the heels below would make affordable and elegant bridesmaid heels too.

Here are my personal faves...

Womens Dip Sided Open Toe Court Shoes



These women's dip sided open toe court shoes will add sophistication to any outfit. They feature an open toe, ankle strap, dip sides and a svelte heel. They can be yours for just £18.00.

Womens 2 Part Cuff Lock Sandal



Strut around in style in these womens two part cuff lock sandals. Their classic design of a one strap and a cute heel is sophisticated and elegant, whilst their wide cuff and zip up back add an edge to these grown up shoes. Wear with a pair of skinny jeans to elongate your legs or pair with a midi skirt for extra sophistication. These beauties will also set you back just £18.00.

A Duo of Mustang Booties - NEW in at Sarenza



It's no secret that I love a great pair of ankle boots. I probably spend 90% of my year wearing boots, and so finding great brands that fit me and wear well, as well as look fantastic, is a must. I was browsing the NEW section over at Sarenza when I saw these alongside a bunch more Mustang styles, and instantly fell in love. The only hard part here is trying to decide between them!

First up is a style called Amuvi, in a pale grey colour called 'ice'. They can be yours for £63.90. Crochet and leather, and chains, AND buckles? Count me in.





Secondly is the rather oddly named Bawyp, also coming to us in the same gorgeous pale grey 'ice' colour. I love how they have successfully managed to create pale grey shoes that do not in any way look cheap and tacky. So many people get that wrong, but Mustang have pulled it off with ease in their new styles. They can also be yours for £63.90.

Shoeniverse - The 'Bargain Monday' Round-Up (aka the SS15 Holiday Prep Post)



Now that the clocks have changed here in the UK and it's officially Spring (not that you'd know from looking out of the window...) I thought that a few bargain basics might be in order in preparation for the warmer weather ahead.

None of the pieces in this post will cost you any more than £20. They are cheap and cheerful, wear them for a season (or a holiday) throwaway classics - but that doesn't mean that you have to just grab the first things that you see. If you have to go cheap (and who wants to ruin silks with suntan lotion?) then make sure you go cheap with style. Bargainista-style.
