Looks Familiar: Stuart Weitzman Purple Bow Peeptoe

So Megan Fox caused quite an unsurprising stir at the Japan premiere of Transformers 2 dressed in slinky purple and with matching shoes.

Shoes by Stuart Weitzman that look an awful lot like today's Shoe Of The Day from Miss Selfridge. Miz Fox's shoes though are suede and the bow has different shades of purple in and look equally as lovely and, were my bank manager to allow it, different enough to justify purchasing as well as it's cheaper counterpart.

If you want them, they're $365 at Zappos

Shoe Of The Day

When I walked past Miss Selfridge the other day and saw these, The Hairy Drummer had to drag me away before I rushed in, tried them on, fell more in love then cried when I realised I couldn't afford them.

But then I found out they were only £35 and that that makes them very affordable indeed. Especially as they look a lot more expensive.

The solid heel, peeptoe and oversized bow as well as the luscious purple all contrive to a huge amount of win. You can buy them instore or online here.

FINALLY! Something By Kate Moss For Topshop That I Actually Like!

Even though I still wouldn't fork out £90 (yes, really. £90.) for it, I do love this maxi dress from the new Kate Moss collection at Topshop.

I saw it in store the other day and was immediately drawn to it, cooed, found out what it was then looked at the price and wanted to cry a little bit. It's double layered which means it felt quite heavy and although there's a lot of fabric in there, it's only polyester which makes the price tag all the more galling. I'd expect it for cotton, not polyester.

I doubt I'm tall enough for it as well but still, for all the drawbacks, I can finally say she and her team have come up with something I like.

Shoe Of The Day

The sun is struggling to make an appearance today but that doesn't mean that summery shoes are forgotten.

This floral canvas MJs from Topshop are the perfect in-betweeny shoe. Pretty and summery but also practical in that your toes won't get cold through ill advised exposure. And for only £22, they'll go nicely with jeans or dresses and skirts which makes them Cost Per Wear Fantastic!
