Guest Blogger: Vanity and Me

‘Fashion and beauty blog for the more mature woman not ready to hang up the high heels yet’. Laurie, who runs the blog ‘Vanity and Me’ has had a passion for fashion from a young age so much so that she used to swap her dinner money for vogue magazine! The Essex born hairdresser/beauty therapist looks absolutely fantastic and we can’t quite believe that she has three children along with 6 grandchildren – she knows exactly what suits her and seems to add class to every outfit! We offered Laurie a pair of sandals from our website, knowing full well she would style them up beautifully and she has done just that. Have a read of her ‘Shoetique – Going For Gold’ blog featuring the FitFlop™ Gladdie Rose Gold!

Vanity-and-Me-1“Have you heard of Shoetique? I was lucky enough to choose a pair of sandals from their website to share with you all. Of course when I clapped eyes on this lovely gold pair, I knew they were the ones for me. I’m an all high heels girl because of my height, but sometimes they are just not practical to wear. Take the beach for instance or lots of walking. So I chose these and put them to the test for comfort….
Now When I ordered these sandals I had visions of doing a post having a picnic wearing shorts, and it was supposed to be sunny and lovely and warm. Oh no, not our UK weather! It was literally wait for a small gap in the clouds and hot foot it to the local park!
But getting back to the sandals….

I chose this version of FitFlop™ Gladdie™ in Rose Gold Super comfort, they have a textured rubber round piece in the sole for extra grip, all leather and a super comfort midsole. They are the all singing all dancing with bells on sandals! I often have a problem with toe post rubbing my feet, but these are fine.

I found myself a convenient tree trunk to sit on so you can see the style of the sandal better.


I love the gold buckle detail! I meant to mention that! Shoetique offer many brands as well as FitFlop™. There’s Clarks, Birkenstock, Joules and many more. If you pop over to their site, there are many special offers on at the mo.”
