Shiny ponies

Thankfifi - triple denim & JCrew shoes-15

Triple denim, blah blah.  Let’s talk shoes.  Shiny ponies (thanks Jenna Lyons for that one, it’s a keeper).  I had some trouble deciding between this lavender pair and a leopard pair but actually as soon as these arrived I knew I made the right choice.  The colour is perfect and I’m in love with the super soft snake effect leather.

I thought it was so funny that after my recent uni presentation about blogging one of the first questions in the Q&A was how many pairs of shoes I have.  I guessed 40 (probably 45 by now).  Well, Jenna Lyons reckons she has 289.  Go watch this beautiful video full of shiny pretty ponies, about J.Crew, the Italian Shoe Collection and Jenna Lyons.  I’m so lucky to also work in a design studio (at bluebellgray) and I love shoes too so I’m pretty sure Jenna and I are destined to be BFF’s… riding off into the sunset together on our shiny ponies (too much Jenna?).

    Those shoes are beautiful! I think you picked well, they are a real standout shoe. Although the leopard print would have been lovely as well!

    Really like your bag too 🙂

      That’s what I thought in the end… when it came to the crunch, everyone has leopard and as gorgeous as they were these were more special

    Oh my, what a beautiful pair of shoes. And they look comfortable too.

    • Thankfifi Posted 3 Apr at 3:50 pm

      Yes, they are so comfortable! All made in a village factory in Italy so I suppose you’d expect them to be 😉

    Gorgeous – love the jeans and the shoes! Look at that sunshine too:)


    • Thankfifi Posted 3 Apr at 5:12 pm

      I know sunshine at least – freezing cold and still got my thermal on under my shirt… but sunshine!

  4. Stylisey Posted 3 Apr at 4:23 pm

    Gorgeous like as always. And the weather is getting better:)

    • Thankfifi Posted 3 Apr at 5:13 pm

      thank you, and yes, so nice to see my almost forgotten friend – the sun

  5. Monica Beatrice Posted 3 Apr at 7:29 pm

    These ARE gorgeous! Also if you and Jenna do become BFF’s can we sort of all be? Maybe with Corline Issa too? HOW good would that be?!

      I’m game if you are… of course we’ll need to get Corline and Jenna on board but that shouldn’t be a problem right?

  6. Gaylesbury Posted 3 Apr at 7:34 pm

    Ooooh, very very pretty!!! They look so chic! x

    • Thankfifi Posted 3 Apr at 9:08 pm

    I can’t say I’m usually sold on heels and jeans but this – yes I can buy in to this. Triple denim/triple thrat. also DEM SHOES. I pretty much always have shoe envy when I stop by here. x

    • Thankfifi Posted 4 Apr at 4:50 pm

      must admit shoe envy is something I often fall victim too – I don’t think it would matter how many pairs I had there would always be another I would want

  9. caroline Posted 4 Apr at 12:19 am

    Your shoes are gorgeous and I love the heel. My new goal in life is to have 290 pairs of shoes! Ha!

    • Thankfifi Posted 4 Apr at 4:50 pm

      an excellent goal caroline!

      Thanks Selma and very wise to stop counting… I think I should do a count just out of interest, just once, and then never again!

      mmm I’m rather taken with them too 🙂

  12. Kodi Posted 8 Apr at 2:05 am

    Leopard print is fabulous and all, but this lavender +blue combination is totally better. And that thicker heel makes them look like you could walk miles in them!

    Pumps and bag are a match made in heaven! Looking gorgeous girl!
