Pure British Style by Sarenza.

This is my entry for the competition that is currently being run by Sarenza – the fab online shoe store. The theme of the competition is ‘Pure British Style’ and this prize is £800 of shoes! That’s more than I get paid for a whole month at work!
If you’d like to enter hop to it! The closing date is today! Check out the Sarenza Facebook page for more info.
I decided to think about what makes British style what it is and came up with a few key words to describe it. I have then selected shoes from the A/W collection on Sarenza that signify this – creating a look book of go to styles for this season. Hope you like the styles that I have chosen.

British style is definitely unique, us Brits are daring and willing to give anything a go. These amazing sequinned star print shoes are perfect for this A/W and are totally on trend.
Retro – Jorgi – I Love Shoes - £50.15
British style does retro best. We have so much history in Britain that it would be stupid to ignore it in our fashion sense, these t-bars are perfect for harking back to days gone by and the velvet bow adds a nice rich detail that is perfect for winter.
Androgynous – Prune – Georgia Rose - £135.15
Androgyny has been very fashionable of late and I think that it is synonymous with British style, these Oxfords are covered in star shaped studs and are a beautiful shade of blue. Perfect for nights out with clashing print dresses.
Patriotic – 1460 W – Dr. Martens - £126.65
Can’t get more patriotic than a pair of Docs can you?
Timeless – Bolton – L.K. Bennett - £160
British style is definitely timeless, these simple black heels would go with everything and last for years.
Brit girls aren’t scared to get their ‘stud’ on, these amazing studded slippers are perfect for this seasons fetish trend and would look great with both casual and smart outfits.
Care-free – Bijoux – Jonak - £63.75
Simple ballet flats are a staple in every woman’s wardrobe, for days when you can’t be bothered but still want your feet to look stylish.
There we have it.
What do you think to my choices? The total comes to just over £700! Wish I had that much money to spend on shoes!
