Studded Pumps

I like to think I'm like most bloggers. If I flick onto a blog, see an outfit post & the blogger is pulling it off in a way I've not seen before, I instantly get it into my head I can do the same. I then continue to stalk the items they are wearing & end up with a wish list longer than my arm. Obviously, being able to pull off every item of clothing I see on other people is ridiculous. No one is the same & I'd like to think I have individual style other than just copying an outfit worn by someone else.
 
In the world of blogging, it is of course impossible not to get caught up in the hype that surrounds different products or campaigns. For example, the Topshop Studded Vectras. I think everyone in the blogging world has a pair of these or at least has them on a wish list. I remember first seeing them a couple of months ago on Becca's Youtube Channel & after that, madness erupted where everyone seemed to have a pair. I have to say, even I was drawn into that hype & after months of resisting, I went in to Topshop, spyed them & tried them on. Honestly? I was disappointed. I've heard people say, they feel like slippers. So comfy & easy to wear they were irresistible. I couldn't have disagreed more. I didn't find them very comfy or felt they would have lasted more than a month of wear. Weird, but I found myself crushed. I'd built these shoes up so much that I knew when I had the money to spend on them, I would have scooped them up without a second thought. Anyway, after this ordeal (lol) I left Topshop & thought no more about them. My studded pump hunt would continue.
 
Last Wednesday I popped into Primark & low & behold, I found myself in the shoe section & I found these! 
 
 
 
I was dreading trying them on & finding they were like the Topshop pair, but no! They were perfect. As well as having jewels on, they also have studs & for only £12, I couldn't resist.
 
 
 
 
 
 
What do you guys think? Do you like the Topshop Vectras? : )
 
* No offence intended to anyone who has the Topshop Vectras! I know lots of you do. They just weren't for me! I'd love to hear your opinion on them. : )

  1. They are lovely, I actually got a pair of nude studded slippers in Primark that are the same as the Vectra's! I do like them but I hate the way they kind of get a crease in the front!
