While the cat's away: I'll show you my wardrobe!

The boyfriend is in Oman for work at the moment and so whilst I've been living the bachelorette lifestyle I've not been able to get pictures of my daily outfits. It's a bit annoying because I miss my fashion posts!! 

Last week I spied a post on Along Abbey Road about her 'Treasure Trove' or jewellery box. I really enjoyed getting an insight into her fashion accessories and treasures, and also enjoy posts on sites like B. Jones Style where we get a snapshot of their wardrobe. SO I thought to myself - why don't I do that?! It's a way of getting my fashion-fix without relying on someone else to take the pics. 

So this time I am sharing my SHOE CUPBOARD!

I am slightly shoe mad (well, EVERYTHING mad, but shoes are probably the most excessive of my purchases). These are my 'everything' shoes - ie, these aren't my summer shoes and they're not my winter boots. Hope you like having a nosey and I'd love to have a nosey back if you feel like sharing too!

This is where my most-used shoes live...

Here are some of my favourites <3
I LOVE these Alberto Guardiani shoes so much. Toot toot! Great for a dreary day!

These puppies stay in the box. They're the ONLY expensive pair of shoes I have bought in NZ, for a black tie gala last November.

Variations of a theme...brogue stylee! Mainly work shoes.
My mum posted the purple/blue brogues to me from the UK last year as a surprise. I'd seen them when I was at home, but when I went to buy them they'd gone (it's like that in TK Maxx!) - she found them a week later and I received the BEST package ever :D

Colourful platform sandals spice up a plain outfit!

You can never have too many black shoes!

Metallic party shoes

Coloured courts anyone?!

These disgusting flip flops were a running joke at home. They were my mum's and we all made fun of them...She managed to sneak them into one of my 3 suitcases when I moved to NZ, and I found them when I unpacked with this note attached...
It made me smile! Especially seeing as I'd arrived on the other side of the world where I knew just one person!!!

Next time I will share my CLOTHES or JEWELLERY :)
