Sometimes a girl just needs some red stilettos

 After a long week of work and being full up with a nasty cold, i literally felt like rubbish by Sunday. So what does a girl do when she feels like rubbish? She dons her most favourite pair of bright red heels of course. I mean look at them, aren't they beautiful. Life altering they may not be, but they sure do put a smile on my face;)
Also adding in to the mix, by beloved faux leather trousers that add a little sass in to my step,and my beautiful new coat from Elite Fashion 99.. beautiful new coats also make everything better. They have an amazing selection, i'm totally crushing on this beautiful coat for spring.. pastel perfection and also price perfection too.. coats  and clothes well within my budget get a huge thumbs up from me.
This coat though is the same style that i have pinned on my pintrest inspiration boards for ages. So now its all mine *cue evil laugh* and its just wonderful. I love love love it. Did i need another new coat? No.. Do i care.. also no.. ;)
Coats are fast becoming an obsession of mine. A whole outfit can be planned around a coat. I think i've mentioned this before as i'm having the strangest feeling of deja-vu.. Lets just say my heads still rather foggy from all the yucky cold and for now i'll stop talking and lets just swoon of those heels again shall we?

Do you have a pair of shoes that makes you feel good?



  1. Truly amazing shoes! You look fantastic! For me the outfit is always based on shoes first, maybe other item, too, rarely :-)

    Have a lovely day!

  2. I need a pair of Red Stiletto Pumps like yours. They are gorgeous and so is that coat. =) You look FAB!

  3. Swooning over the heels, the coat, the lilac scarf and even your bracelet! Omg, so much love for this outfit.

  4. Those red shoes are absolutely gorgeous! I love the pop of color that they add to your outfit

  5. GREATTTTTTTTT ensemble, Ms Rachel! I love the scarf with it all. oh ...and of course we need our red stilettos, fer dang sure! ♥

  6. I love my red stilettos for the same reason. Definitely perks you up, makes you feel powerful, like nothing can go wrong. You look fantastic for feeling icky- we'd never know! And I agree with you, a coat can really change the entire look. This same outfit without the coat would be perfect for spring/summer time too! Feel better!

  9. These heels are beautiful! The colour and height are perfect. I also love the subtle pattern on your coat. It's beautiful.

  10. I love Danile footwear - your heels are stunning and really eye catching! Where do you keep all your coats? they're so bulky I'm going to have to buy another wardrobe to fit them all in. Love your coat- can't believe the price! you look great.

  11. Isn't funny how a perfectly curated outfit can make you feel like a million bucks even when you're at your worst! Hope you are feeling better!

  18. This is one fab look that would pick anyone up. I cannot agree more that wearing heels makes me feel chic and put together, but I always seem to walk everywhere and lately the idea of spending a day in heels is too daunting. however, having said that you look incredible, every element of this look is perfection and I'm sorry to hear you were feeling don't show it!
