THE SUNDAY DEBATE + GIVEAWAY WINNER

First of all, I'd like to announce the winner of my Cross Earrings giveaway, the winner is:
Ariel from Chic Look xo Congratulations Ariel! Your Prize will be on it's way soon!

In last weeks Sunday Debate, I asked your opinions on heeled trainers. I thought Alona's comment was so true, I think spending a lot of money on a trend like this is a little crazy.

This brings us to this weeks topic! Spending money on trends.
I think spending money on classic pieces is justifiable as it's going to last forever, but personally, I think spending a lot of money on a trend that will only last a season or two is a bit of a bad idea.
Take these curved wedges for example. One is from Tribeca Shoes and the others are McQueen. They both look kind of similar but the price difference is almost £500!
Now £500 means for a very nice trip to Topshop, so I think I'd go cheap!
As for the shoes themselves, I'm a bit indifferent really. I don't hate them and I don't love them. They're one of those things that I think looks fab if you can pull them off, but I think I'd feel a little silly. I'd possibly wear a plainer pair (minus spikey studs!) on a night out but they might just bit a bit too Lady Gaga for me!

What do you think about these shoes? And let me know your thoughts on what you'd spend on a trend!

  1. yayyy! Thank you so much! :)

    First, spending on a trend... well, it definitely depends if you love it enough to justify it. If it's something you love and you think you'll wear them even when they aren't the "hot thing" then buy them. for example, over the knee boots were a major trend last year and seem to be coming back for round two this year. I personally love that style of boots so I will spend on them for a good pair no matter if they are in trend or not.

    For these shoes, I honestly don't know if I love them or hate them.. I would have to try them on with the right outfit and go from there! They seem pretty interesting though!
