I heard that Daxon were looking for bloggers to sign up to their blogger network so I had to go and find out a bit more about them. Daxon are part of Redcats, which is the 3rd largest home shopping organisation in the world. They specialise in top quality clothing for all occasions. I felt a bit bad I knew very little about them so I had a look to see what they offered. It was a great time to look as the sale is on at the moment and the prices were really reduced.
They have a wide range of ladieswear in a range of sizes. From a quick look this Cowl Neck Dress leapt out at me in a pink colour. It was £35.00 but is going for £14.00 in the sale.
This would look smart for work and could also be worn with black tights. I also found this sweater with a button cable design.
I love the border on it, it makes it a little bit unusual and it is currently only £11 reduced from £23.
As well as clothes you will also find shoes, homeware, lingerie and healthcare products. I am always tempted by shoes and this pair of Pedicomfort Swede leather calf boots look great as well as looking comfortable. These are £89.00
Why not go and have a look on http://www.daxon.co.uk and see what you can find.
It’s time for the Sales, have you been brave enough to hit the shops yet? If you are looking for shoes now is the time to pick up some bargains. I shalll be doing some shoe sales shopping as I would love a pair of smart looking boots and maybe some flat shoes for work. I had a browse to see what I could pick up.
I love these Cop Copine Vanili boots,
They are made of leather and I like the cuff detailing at the top which gives them a piratical feel. The stud detailing adds a sense of the rock chick which I love. Best of all they are no longer £149.99 but reduced to £82.50.
I also really like these Betty London Arfene boots
They look sensible from the front but the back has cunningly concealed studding adding a sense of danger. The heels are not too high either so I know I could walk in these. You can pick these up for £43.40 rather than the normal £78.99.
Call me crazy but I also love these Irregular Choice Best of All court shoes.
I can really see me strutting my stuff in these, the peacock feather on the side is just so unusual. I might not wear them to work but they would look fabulous on a night out, a real statement pair of shoes. They are platform shoes so will make me look much taller. At the moment these are £63.20 instead of £114.99.
So have you hit the sales and did you get anything? Do let me know what your bargains have been.
Surfdome are currently running a competition for bloggers where you can win a £250 voucher. I wasn’t sure if I would find anything I liked on the site as I had this strange idea that Surfdome just provided clothes for surfers. When I looked I was pleasantly surprised at the choice of lots of different clothes. I was really struggling to find something to put on my wishlist, not because I couldn’t find anything but because there was far too much that I liked. In the end I managed to narrow the choice down to four items which you can see here.
I absolutely fell in love with these The North Face Jozie II Boots.
They look so cosy and also appear to have non-slip soles. I spent this morning sliding precariously round the park while walking the dog. The paths had turned to sheet ice. These look perfect for keeping my feet warm. I am thinking that if this weather keeps up much longer I am going to have to train the dog to pull a sleigh. They cost £139.99 so it takes a large chunk of the £250 budget but I think they would be worth it.
To go with the boots I found a pair of Dr Denim Kissy jeans in black which cost £37.99
I think these would look great with the boots. To complete the look I chose this Fat Face Lara T-shirt in sweet grape which cost £19.99
and teamed it with this Oakley Whimsical Winter hoody for £44.99
I loved the name of this hoody as well as the design on it which resembles crashing waves. The entire look costs £242.96 but I would be happy with just the boots which are now firmly on my shoe wish list. If I do manage to train the dog to pull a sleigh I will take some pictures but I suspect he is a little bit too small.
Disclosure: This is my entry for the Surfdome blogger challenge.
It is nearly December and the time for parties. This normally means wearing high heeled shoes to dance the night away. I always find wearing high heeled shoes is hard work. I totter around precariously on them and at the end of the evening my feet really need a rest. They are also not ideal for walking on those slippery pavements outside. This is where I decide that I should have worn flat shoes and wish I had a pair in my bag.
Recently I discovered Redfoot Shoes. These are flat ballerina pumps that you can fold in half and carry around in your handbag. They do not take up much room and come with their own little carry case. Perfect for slipping on after parties to get you home.
They come in a range of colours and styles as well, all of which look pretty and stylish. I love these royal purple Miranda shoes. These would not look out of place with that party dress and maybe you can find a prince to escort you home.
For the animal lovers amongst you how about this pair of leopard skin pumps?
You can pad home in style with a rarrr in your step wearing these pumps. Finally I love these black studded pumps with a little skull detail.
Perfect for adding a touch of rebellion to your outfit.
The great thing about these pumps is they are so light, they weigh less than 200g. The sole is synthetic as well so they are durable enough to wear on pavements. The other benefit of having a pair of these in your handbag is that you can slip them on if you need to drive. I find it impossible to drive in some heels and find these invaluable to change into to drive safely. Do you own any of these shoes? Do you find them useful?
Deep in my heart I am a rock chick and like to wear flamboyant styles. Sadly grown up life got in the way and for work I have to look much more understated. Shoes are the one place where I can still make a statement and at the moment studs are very much in. I love studs and shoes or boots with studs, buckles and silver embellishments are very much on my wish list. They add a touch of rock to an outfit without making it look too over the top which appeals to me.
I had a browse though to see some of the styles that were out there and I have been adding some to my shoe wish list. If money was no object I would get some New Rock boots. They have a great selection including these Motorock black boots.
I love the different types of studding on these boots and the silver embellishment on the heel. They have silver buckles as well and little skulls discretely hidden. They are a bit out of my price range though at £246.99.
A shoe I could happily wear for work is this lovely court shoe from Abbey Dawn. It is called the Holly Chart Topper Platform.
I love the rivet detailing and the tartan lining. These are shoes that actually look really elegant as well as slightly unique.
My final choice would be these Buffalo Dendzi boots in black.
They are an elegant looking boot with just a touch of silver studding and buckling done in a very understated way. These would look perfect with a number of different outfits and I would definitely wear them to work with trousers.
There are so many studded styles out there that I am really spoiled for choice. Do you like the studded shoe trend and which one would you choose?
