THE RED DRESS AND SNAZZY SANDALS


Dress: Primark 
Sandals c/o EGO Shoes

Window shopping is one of my favourite least-favourite things to do. I had seen this dress in Primark for weeks and loved the look of it, but never picked it up. Of course, I touched it (a lot of times) and planned days in my head when I could wear it, but I didn't take full advantage of a relationship with this dress until the weekend before I jetted off to Croatia.

As soon as I stepped into Primark, I was on a hunt for it. Imagine my sadness when I couldn't find it. Then imagine my happy face when I finally found it hidden behind a similar-but-not-quite-the-same dress. Hooray!

I had to have it. I had to go in for the kill and make it mine, oh mine.


Before I knew it, it was in my paper Primark bag and well on its way back to mine. I promise I don't usually hook up this quick.

With its off the shoulder fit and slight smock dress fit, it's been the perfect dress for these long summer days and evenings. Red is one of my favourite colours to wear as a blondie, so it was inevitable that I would eventually cave in and buy it. Not to mention, it was only £6!

Anyway. How beautiful are the sandals? Can we just take a good ten seconds to appreciate how incredibly tacky, OTT and snazzy they are? With aztec style straps and decorated with different coloured pom poms, beads; they tie up around your leg with jazzy tassels to finish. 


I was super excited to be jetting off to Croatia with three pairs of EGO shoes in my suitcase. Definitely one of my favourite shoe collaborations of all time...  and there's been a lot of shoes featured on this blog in 7 years! 

These are the Saskia sandals but sadly seem to be out of stock now. Darn it! However, EGO do have an amazing sale on right now. So, be quick!

  8. The dress is beautiful and it looks amazing on you; I can see why you fell in love with it!
    If I saw someone wearing those shoes I'd probably ask them where they got them from, they're so wonderfully random.
