Obviously, that's All White. But I did try writing that as a title and it looked naff. Not that the one I ended up looks any better but then I got bored thinking about it and decided to leave it and move on.
To the important stuff.
Trainers. It's amazing how you can think you have enough and it takes seeing one person wearing some you don't have to think - oh my lord, I'm not sure I can live without that pair. Slightly dramatic reaction but no, actually maybe not.
I see trainers all the time. I love lots of trainers. I *really* love some trainers (which I own). But then a pair comes along that I would possibly consider selling a small child for (or medium sized child - possibly not the largest as she makes an ace shopping companion. The other two should have considered their shopping behaviour over the years more wisely it seems...).
What are these trainers, clearly sent down from heaven to tempt us, of which I talk?
Isabel Marant Etoile Bryce low top leather trainers £225 (oh and if you happen to order from My Theresa before tomorrow morning, you get free delivery. It's also free returns. Just saying...).
The pictures do not do them justice. I did see if I could buy them today in Selfridges but they only had the Bart trainers which I have to say are absolutely lovely (and she did actually say that people keep asking if they have the Bryce. HA Selfridges. Get buying better). But I'm going to throw it out there that they are a tad too much like the classic Stans for me to justify the extra money.
Isabel Marant Bart Trainer £225
But what was that I said about Stans? The classic of classics. And with 40% off? Yes a whole 40% off. Rude not to. Code from La Redoute BIG40.
White on white Stans £69 that's before the 40% off. I'm not sure you'll ever find cheaper than that.
Or red...£69 (again pre discount).
Or a different red version £69 pre discount again.
Or the Superstars - again 40% off.
Superstar foundation trainers £79 from La Redoute
Whilst we're on the subject of classics, the most chic and plain of trainers, I saw today at Jigsaw. Went to their amazing flagship store on Duke Street (complete with coffee shop and Bluebird concession). These are their stand out shoes of the season.
Ayda Leather Trainers £98
But if you're looking for slightly off piste then obviously I'm going to recommend my beloved Golden Goose.
Golden Goose Superstar sneakers £295
Or their new this season higher back Ball Trainers.
Golden Goose Deluxe Brand Ball Star Trainers £265
Then just because I love my Toga boots... ok so I'm going to throw it in that I'm not 100% sure about these (on reflection, I'm not sure I'm 1% sure). But you never know... and with fashion, never say never.
Toga buckle low top leather trainers £240
Have you gone over to the white side yet? Are you the owner of more than one pair. Oh and I should probably point out that whilst I do have my Stans, they have been Ginnyed. ie the dog has eaten the back of one of them. Which means I am totally totally justified in buying a new pair. Seeing as I wear them pretty much all the time.
Today, trip to London, some meetings followed by a lovely lunch with one of my oldest friends who has moved back to England from Australia. Beyond pleased. And yes, I wore the dress again. Different jacket, shoes and bag which I think gives it a different look.
Green & navy dress - Quattro Rish
Onyx leather jacket - hush
Superstar sneakers - Golden Goose
Black Haworth bag - Village England
Tomorrow is Friday. Where did that week go? I will be back with.. right now I can't remember what I'm supposed to be doing tomorrow but I will be back with something. Tonight it was only an hour persuading the 9yr old to do his homework. There may have been wine. And now there will be new trainers.
