Ash Box

The Reveal

One of the things I was thankful for this week was spotting a bargain and making my one sale purchase.....




I actually will have surprised a few of you by going for the Ash Thelma wedge trainers instead of the boots!! I paid £81 for these beauties. I can't find them available at this price anymore .
Radical in my Old Age!



One of the reasons is, I have so many ankle boots I felt it was an excess to get another pair.
The other reason was the Jalouse boots were not reduced by enough to tempt me.



I reasoned that going into Spring, I might get more wear out of these.



Opening the box was no disappointment. Butter soft leather, glorious quality, beautiful details...



High? Yes. But that's why I like these!



I love , love, love!!!
Less than half the price and
I still have £10 left in my e.bay fund!



Outfit post at the weekend.......  Smiley

  3. It's a great feeling to get a bargain, isn't it and they are going to be so useful both now and as the weather improves. A belated Happy New Year to you (I've only just returned from my week away)

  4. Oh you cheeky mare! And I really thought you were going for the boots! I know what you mean about buttery soft leather and lovely packaging - I was very seduced when I ordered the Ash Jalouses last year and I returned them only because I genuinely wasn't happy with the pointiness of the toe. They've put out another version now which is the Ash Spirals which suit me much more but ... no discounts on those! It was hard sending them back but send them back I did .. polish halo. Look forward to the weekend outfit post - featuring Ash wedge trainers and fabulously conditioned hair no doubt?

    1. I did have a giggle as I knew you ( and everyone) thought I'd get the boots, but they were still very expensive. I did find some reduced under £100, but of course not in the right colour or size! I am loving these - my first wedge trainers - am now hankering after more. What are we like?! And no - I tried the Ojon again still no joy. It is either I have rubbish hair or I am rubbish at using it or it just doesn't suit me. Someone in my family is going to be getting it to try - lucky them! This weather and my straighteners are playing havoc with my hair - I am a fizzy bedhead!

    1. I am hopeless with heels, but wedges I can do for some reason - lots to balance on I think! I am loving them, but now want some in different colours. No no no! xx
