those shoes

1



If you've be reading LLYMLRS for a long time, you'd know what my all time favourite pair of shoes are. My leopard moccasins are seriously the favourite item that I own! I bought them for £2 in Primark about two years ago then I started wearing them non stop. I've worn them in the snow, rain, sun, wind I even wore them on the beach when I was in New Zealand! So much love, that they became a bit battered, and I was starting to lament the fact I was never going to get another pair of them. Other leopard shoes have come into my life, but none have captured my heart like those shoes. Despite their battered appearance, I cant bare to think about throwing the old ones away! Id stopped wearing them so much, but they

I couldn't believe my luck when someone on twitter, I'm so sorry I cant find your tweet, if its you please claim it and ill credit you, linked me to a pair of the beloved moccasins, they weren't my size so they went and found me some in my size! How chuffed was I!  I ended up bidding like £10 for it, But got them for a measly £4 including P&P! I bought them from this seller, and them came so beautifully packaged and quickly, It restored my faith in ebay after my 1000d issues! Look how grubby my old ones are compared to my brand new pair!

Anyway, The moral of this story is, Always buy backups of your favourite shoes, especially if they are very cheap and from Primark!

EDIT: Just a FYI  I 'shopped my feet, Because does anyone want to see my veiny feet? Um no! And anyway, gotta bring the feet fetish people in!

  4. They're really cute!
    I'm a fully paid up believer in "the heir and the spare" so to speak, especially of items you truly couldn't live without. Problem is, it takes a while to realise you can't live without them, by which time they're not available anymore!

  6. Aww I have SO many favourite shoes I've never been able to replace once they've died. One memorable pair is some silver shoes from Topshop in about 2004... *sigh*

  7. Oh, they're so cute! I'll be so heartbroken when my favourite shoes finally break beyond repair, and I don't think I'll be as lucky as you with the price - I bought them for £50 :(

  15. Aww I love a happy ending! My favourite Chanel-esque (white, black toe, quilted, everyone has them lol) primark shoes died this week, on the lookout for a replacement! Might go for some leather ones though :)

  16. I know the feeling....the only difference is my favs are a pair of minnetonkas so replacing them won't be all that difficult but I find it amazing that you found them....I would have asked if they had more...lol

  17. £2 is a steal, shame you can't get them for that anymore. Also, lol'd at the photoshop comment! No-one likes forcing their veiny feet upon people, especially not in a big photo on your blog haha.

  18. I love those, i never ever saw them in Primark, they must have sold out pretty quickly when they were in! They look really comfy!

  22. Cute shoes, great that you got another pair :)
    don´t talk abt fetish people... they´re just digusting and scare me...! :D

  23. I feel your pain, I have a tendency to fall in love with one pair of shoes in particular, wear them until they start to disintegrate and then feel a bit lost until I find my next pair du jour. Buying backups would definitely be a practical idea, but still not something I can ever quite get round to doing. X

  29. Having recently discovered your blog im trawling through the back logs and it's so weird to have found this post! I was literally just looking at my pair of these thinking how much i love these and how annoying it is that i can't wear them (they are weirdly substantially too big despite being my size- primark shoe size issues are a mystery to me.) But yes effortlessly cool and yet comfy too :) x
