Shoe Confessions




I've been wearing these bad boys almost every day lately (sorry to bore you instagram buddies). Each time - with out fail someone says 'ohh- iv'e been wanting those' or 'oh yeah, i've got those another colour' and so on.

They are delicious shoes, very fancy indeed. But I must confess- they are not the highly sought after label that I believe others are referring too. They are by Lotta from Stockholm and are seriously a fraction of the price (hello - less than $85 Australian)

If you've been dreaming of clogs this season, then I suggest you hit Lotta up. I for one will be ordering a pair of these for the winter months.

And while your lingering around the interweb- why not pay a visit to The Beetle Shack's very generous sponsors... see them there over to the left? DWF, Little Green Shed and Handmade Kids. There are still a few smaller add spaces left if you want in (you'll totes be helping me pay my bills, babe)

  2. :O!
    You rock! I have been lusting after the $$ clog heel things for months now. And they are far too expensive for my dusty wallet. But these ones - THESE ones are just right.
    What is the fit like? I know with salt water sandals I got size 8 when I am usually a size 9-10.
    Next to convince the husband that clogs and brightly coloured stockings are winter fare!

    1. im usually a 38 and the 38 is perfect in these! Salties have strange sizing hey!! I had that problem too!

      And dude, trust me- clogs and fruity tights/ socks are a MUST this winter. I hope I see just this on insta from you!

  3. Oh woman, I love these shoes and have been wanting some for awhile. I'm afraid ALL shoes are on the "too expensive" list right now. BUT A WOMAN CAN DREAM! THAT'S STILL FREE!

  6. Beautiful shoes Em. Can I ask a really boring question? I have a poorly knee (ENTIRELY age related) and am finding heels an issue. This is a very sad state of affairs. However a wedge is ok. Do you think that these would feel more like a wedge to wear? Are they very high? Am desperate for something that is comfortable & glam for work & general gorgeousness.

    1. Hey Karen, not a boring question at all- They do feel like a wedge to wear but I must confess- the wooden base makes them less flexible than other shoes... this could be a problem for long term everyday wear?

    Wearing the same shoes is nothing - I can wear the same clothes every day for a week.... how's that for ew factor?
