New Dress, New Shoes

I know Maxi's were at their peak earlier this summer, but I just had to try one eventually. I know I'm late on this trend, and I really wish I'd discovered how great they were while it was still warm enough to wear them (London is very cold these days).
I was always slightly scared of wearing maxi dresses because I'm sooooo short and I thought I'd get lost in it if I wore one.

I'm wearing maxi dress courtesy of Blue Inc and Steve Madden shoes.

I think the dress is gorgeous. I can't believe I haven't worn one before. I really love the print of this one, and love the way it fits. I really need a way to wear Maxi dresses in the winter!

The shoes are my new love: I know I don't need another new pair, but I had to have these. They're gorgeous Steve Madden pumps and I found them in my local charity shop for £10!!! And they fit perfectly!

They were sitting next to a pair of Micheal Kors (not in my size), which were also priced at £10. I've also seen a pairof Kurt Geiger heels in that charity store for the same price.
But they're in pretty decent condition, apart from a few marks and don't look that worn at all!

At my last count, I was on 45 shoes, but then got rid of two...and then added 3, which means I'm on 46 pairs! RozFashionista thinks I should get an iconic pair for my 50th. Any ideas?

Hope all you Brits are enjoying the Bank Holiday!

P.S. I've been writing a few articles for the MyRetailHeaven online Magazine!

The dress looks really lovely on you. I have the same problem with maxi dresses but I really want to invest in a maxi skirt for the winter.

I can't believe you got those shoes in a charity shop for £10. I haven't been in my local charity shops for a while, must pop in soon or I could be missing out on some great stuff.

Bloody hell you have 46 pairs of shoes?!! Mind shifting some over to me? hehe

I love the colour of those Steve Madden heels, very punchy. And I agree, I was a bit scared of wearing maxi dresses due to my height, but I'm glad I've tried it now because I'm in love with them!
