High street fashion haulage

Sunday, August 30, 2009

Having my local high street a 2 min walk away from my hse and working 15 mins away has its benefits. I've acquired this little lot by popping into shops on my way home after work as I manage to catch them before they close for the evening.

I bought these tops from H&M

I've been lusting after this Topshop necklace for about a month after spotting it in silver in this blog post by Fashion Hedonism (this girls style is on fiiiiiiiiiiiiyah). I was hoping to find it instore as I have a £20 Arcadia voucher sitting in my wallet but I had to relent and order it online in the end.

In true Leo style I couldn't decide whether to get it in silver or gold - so I just ordered both!

Same goes for these suede-look shoes from New Look. They were a steal at £20 and I've been after a pair of 'Cadbury Purple' courts for aaaaaaaages and the shade of this purple is perfect (it's much brighter in reality). I figure they'll be cool to wear to work and play so I snatched them up in black too.


Only problem is they squeak like crazy! They were fine when I wore them around the house the first time but now when I try them on, they squeak. How can I get them to stop?? I really don't want to take them back but I'm not walking around London sounding like Sweep (of Sooty and Sweep fame)!

Any suggestions on how to make them stop squeaking? I've googled but the suggestions seem to be for leather shoes.
