My shoes are from Diana Ferrari, which I think is an Australian brand. I have a theory that a lot of Australian shoe brands have Italian-sounding names to give people the impression that their shoes are good quality (because people tend to associate quality shoes with Italy)...
I absolutely love this skirt - I wish I could wear it all the time! It's longer than most of the skirts I own, which makes it a bit warmer and more suitable for Winter, and it has been getting cooler this week. I'm glad there's a trend for longer (midi, tea-length) skirts at the moment.
My shoes are from Prada, and their story is that I bought them when I was in Canada late last year, because I really wanted the Miu Miu shoes I wore earlier on in the shoe challenge, but I couldn't find them in a store (I ended up getting them online later). They're really lovely, but I broke a few of my shoe rules by buying them (ie don't spend over $500 on a pair of shoes, don't buy too many pairs of sandals because they're not practical, don't buy expensive sandals).
I felt very colourful wearing this today... Maybe too colourful, especially as it was a grey, rainy day. But that could also be seen as a reason to wear bright colours!
My shoes are from a local brand, Alan Pinkus. I like their shoes, but I do think they're overpriced, and these particular shoes are basically copies of the red Valentino shoes I wore earlier in the shoe challenge. Anyway, I usually make sure not to wear satin shoes on days when it's likely to rain, but unfortunately I couldn't predict the weather today, and these shoes got really wet. I just hope they'll dry and won't be permanently damaged, because I have surprisingly few pairs of blue shoes and I need all of the ones I can get!
