Frill lace top and Red Glove Shoes ( & #Passion4Fashion Linkup!)

I put this outfit on a few days back and instantly felt the bee's knees. I think its the red shoes, red shoes sure do put a hop in my skip and a spring in my step. Plus they are comfy like no other!
I will be completely honest and say that i was not a fan of the Glove shoe style when they first came out, having worn court shoes for a lot of my Travel agent's days, they reminded me too much of the navy vessels i begrudgingly encased my poor feet in, day after day.
But then I saw these...and thought maybe, for £14, i could give them a whirl. The glove style of the fabric is soft on the foot and the block heel is just the perfect height for daywear-running around and they add that desired pop of red that I do love so very much.
Add in a beautiful lace top which I was gifted for Christmas and i felt like a new woman.The lace top is such a great twist on a classic white top, which I'm always partial to wearing, but this one added a much needed detail and some added interest which i've been craving of late.
I added in my old trusty jeans and black crombie style coat to finish the look and headed on a day date with the husband to the cinema (Assassins Cred..twas good!). It felt good to feel good in an outfit and added a little boost to what had otherwise been a terrible week (Long Story.. onwards and upwards!!)

Have you tried any new styles of late?
How do you add a bit of interest to an outfit?
