"These boots were made for walking" - Heels on a Budget


Quick update on the life of lowly me - it's our first sixth form social of the year tomorrow night, which basically means everyone tarts up and heads out to a club with all 200 or so other people of sixth form for a great night out - WOOP WOOP *fist pumps*

Me, being me, spent hours researching dresses and whatnot, and managed to order myself a lovely little bodycon dress from Missguided - but (the whole me being me part), I forgot to order heels. Don't get me wrong, I have many pairs of black heels in different styles - but I wasn't really feeling turning up like an undertaker, so I had my heart set on a pair of red heels. Of course, it got to Wednesday evening and I suddenly realised - now it was shopping for heels on a deadline, as well as a budget!

I spent many hours of that evening, when I probably should have been working searching for shoe websites - it seems like the usual places such as Topshop just aren't up to scratch when it comes to having a big range of shoes - especially if you don't fancy spending up to £100 on one pair!

I found a few websites that seemed really good for heels on a budget, so I thought I'd just list them for you, and show you some of the heels I loved :)

Jagger Studded Slipper Shoe, £18.99 and
Mandu Super Super High Platform Court Shoe,  £35.99

Daisy Street was one of my favourite websites that I found - all the shoes were so cute! It also has free UK delivery, and 10% off for students, which is always lovely! Most of their shoes are about the £20-30 margin.

Lazy Me Varsity, £10, Yoga Nude Patent, £24.99, Sonic Black Faux Suede, £29.99

This was another brand which looked great for basic shoes - not so much statement shoes, but good for the essentials! I loved the Lazy Me Varsity shoes, which would be a great alternative for Toms, which I've been lusting after for a while :)

Emilo, £15, Sammie, £25, Carry, £25

Chockers shoes is literally my godsend! I've ordered countless pairs off here, and they're always great value and great quality - as well as being the comfiest shoes I own! Delivery is pretty fast for the UK, and I generally all round adore this company. What I also love is they normally have the heels in many different colours, so you can always find bright colours if you're looking for a bit more of a statement!

This may or may not surprise you, but amazon is actually really good for heels! Most people when they think of amazon think techy gadgets, books and other things - but it's worth a try for heels too! Just be careful with the ones you order, have a read of the reviews first because I read some dodgy sounding ones before I picked which ones I was going to order - but mine seem of a reasonable quality and they were only £20!

These are the ones I chose (ignore the slightly creepy face - overly attached girlfriend meme anyone?), and I love love love them! I'm hoping they'll add a bit of colour to my so far monochrome outfit.

Just to add - ebay is also amazing for heels and wedges! Definitely worth a try if you're getting desperate :)

Hope this helped anyone struggling to find some decent quality heels at a non mind-boggling price!
