My Top 25 High Street Sandals

Good morning!! Today I thought I would do a slightly different kind of post to my usual shopping posts. Let me know if you like it or not!! I know how much of a struggle it is to find a good pair of sandals in the sea of shops on the high street. Usually the best ones have already gone by the time you actually want a pair and so the hunt begins! This is why I have put together my picks of the high street sandals, my top 25 to be exact! For each of the high street sandals I’ve added a little commentary of why I picked it and what I think about it so that you can see my thought process! Each image is clickable which will take you directly to the store it’s from and you can scroll through all 25 with the little arrows! My Top 25 High Street Sandals Make sure you let me know if you like this and I will do more! Also if there is a particular item you want me to do it with then let me know as well! Finally, one more thing I want you to let me know . . if you get any! I’d love to know if I’ve inspired you to make a purchase !! Theres a few in there I’ve got my eye on though I’ve already brought so many! I’ve also included some of the high street sandals I already own because obviously they are my top picks as I got them! Make sure you follow me on Bloglovin’ to stay up to date with all of the latest posts and also I can’t deny it makes me super happy when you guys hit follow! You can also find me on youtube where I’m trying to make more of an effort – bare with me guys!

My Little Secret : Arch The Label Agency

So when I first confirmed this post with one of my favourite local stores and gems, I was so happy. Then I started waking up in the night and panicking – what if everyone buys all the stuff I want?! You have to understand that I live in a small town and this label agency is one heck of a gem that I don’t have many people to worry about buying the pieces I want. I simply save up and buy the pieces – theres no urgency.  I’m going to tell you anyway because I feel like you have to share good things, it’s not good to keep them for yourself! But please if a Gucci Dionysus comes in – I call shotgun! I’ve been round and picked out my top finds and for each shot I’ve listed below the image what sizes and prices the products featured are along with the brands and the style! Celine Box Bag : £1,250 // Rupert Sanderson Heels Size 6 : £190Paige Denim W29 : £60 (labels still attached) So Arch label agency is what I’m going on about (see their website here) except it’s definitely a label agency with a difference, largely because of the location – you won’t pay London prices. The pieces in store are ridiculously well priced and most are in amazing condition. You can have a look at the website to see what’s currently in store though only shoes, accessories and handbags are listed, you can also call the store on 01780 764746 where you can ask if a particular item’s in stock or talk about reserving or purchasing any of these items! 3.1 Phillip Lim Leather Mix Jacket Small : £150 // Saint Laurent Monochrome Classic Duffle : £850 I cannot get over the price of this Phillip Lim jacket – £150 is what you’d pay for a leather jacket from Topshop!  I think it suits me pretty well too if I’m honest though I’m going to stop talking about preference because these are my top picks of the current stock and I can’t be shotgunning them all now can I? So we can just assume that I love each and every piece I’ve picked! Tory Burch Small Shoulder Bag : £180 Chanel Jacket Size 14 : £500 That’s right they’ve even got Chanel Jackets – 2 to be exact! I don’t want to keep repeating myself but ALADDINS CAVE!!!! Chanel Jackets, Celine Bags and half of it’s still got the labels on. I actually made a purchase myself whilst I was there which I will be revealing on my youtube channel this week so stay tuned/ subscribe! And also I’ll be doing another post on the bag, what fits inside and why I chose that one in particular! Saint Laurent Black Flat Pumps Size 5 : £190 // Celine Trapeze Bag : £950 Alexander Chastity Bag : £290 // Grey J Brand Jeans W25 : £60 //Joseph Silk Striped Top : £60Celine Tunic Dress Size 8 : £290 Givenchy Croc Stamped Antigona : £850 // Givenchy Size…

Fathers Day Gift Guide

So I’ve been a little bit more prepared than I was in my christmas/mothers day gift guides with my Fathers day gift guide. In the fact that I’ve actually given you enough time to buy the products in time for the big day! I’ve racked my brain so you don’t have to and gathered together a selection of bits and pieces that’ll have any Dad smiling from ear to ear this Fathers day . . I hope! The Trouble With Fathers Day For me, I find my Dad impossibly hard to shop for. And for that dad, I apologise. It’s not an uncommon occurrence for my dad to end up with socks or a mug saying ‘best dad ever’ usually accompanied by some chocolate covered brazil nuts and liquorice all sorts. This Fathers day I’m determined to make it up to him – I mean my Mum got a coffee machine – that’s not too fair! I just find men really hard to shop for which is why I have so much of a struggle when it comes to Fathers day. I feel like men never really need anything and my Dad in particular is a no faf kinda guy – my mum buys his clothes and when I offered him this smartphone speaker he spent a good 10 minutes deciding if he would actually use it . . he actually had to think of an occasion that it would be useful. Who does that with a gift? An aftershave is a great gift for a Dad like mine that’s looked after by your Mum. He’d never buy it for himself. Jo Malone is always a good idea, plus it’s unisex so if like me you still live at home you can use it too. Cardholders are another good Fathers day gift for the guy that doesn’t shop for himself. This black croc effect one from Amara is ridiculously well priced! Daniel Wellington watches are a great more affordable brand that is so sleek and smart and not too fancy for a man like my own Father! They also have super affordable alternative straps so if he’s already got one it’s a good gift idea as a stand alone item, or an added extra if you’re getting him a watch! They also have a free complimentary strap of your choice with every watch sold before June 13th so take full advantage of this! You can also use the code SINEAD for 15% off anything from Daniel Wellington until 30th June Socks are always a good idea. Yes they’re cliche, and no, you can never have enough. A pair that are a bit more fancy say I love you Dad. I’m loving this stripy pair from Amara. Shop The Edit Now I know that this photo frame has feathers in it but you can take them out if you’re not too keen – I got this with a view to putting in a photo of me and Dad. If in doubt get sentimental! Parents will always love anything hand made by you – make sure you play on that…

Shop With Me!

I thought I’d do a little post on how I like to shop and how you can shop with me. I know it seems a bit random but bare with me and you’ll get the gist! My favourite place to get inspo on what to buy is to look at my favourite fashion bloggers – yes, believe it or not, as a fashion blogger I still get inspo from other bloggers. Some of my favourites are Emma Hill, Monikh Dale and Hannah Crosskey go and check them out now! Wellll, actually, maybe you could just finish reading my post and check them out afterwards . . So basically, when I want to buy something new, you know when you’re in the mood to shop, you’ve got money in your bank account for once, and the internet is just a sea of possibilities – too many possibilities. This is when I look to my fave’s, if you haven’t got the time or the patience to scroll through so many different websites I always look at what they’ve been blogging about and obviously as instagram is an ever inspiring page for making me spend I love looking at their liketoknow.it pages – more on this in a minute. Take these sandals for example, I saw these whilst I was strolling the streets of London, happily minding my own business slash stalking on instagram. When Hannah posted a picture of these amazing chloe dupes (see the chloe ones here) proclaiming they were only £24.99 from Mango . . off I went to Mango, no luck – clicked on her liketoknow.it and there they were, sitting in my basket- at the checkout – in my hands. It’s almost too easy! Shop With Me on Liketoknow.it So liketoknow.it I’ve been using for a while now – both as an influencer and as a consumer. I can therefore give you all of the insight! I’ve made a little diagram of how it works below to show you more simply! But basically, you sign up at liketoknow.it – I’m pretty sure you only have to put in your name and email then confirm – it’s not a long ass form asking what your mums first pet was called. Then once you’ve signed up, it links your instagram to your email, so that if you liked say, my instagram picture, and I’ve linked it to my liketoknow.it then you’ll get an email with links to where everything I’m wearing’s from and you’ll be safe in the knowledge that you can browse these emails at your leisure! BUT if you don’t want these emails you can go to my liketoknow.it page www.liketoknow.it/sineadcrowe and all of my insta pictures will be listed with the products below – the same as on the email example but in a long list! Now, I know some of you hate the idea of this as I’ve heard many a time that the emails bother you – personally I like being able to browse them and keep them for payday but each to their own. So, for all you haters out there…
