Russell & Bromley has to be the ultimate mecca for shoe lovers. My nearest branch is a 45 minute drive away, so the last three months I've spent in London has been a bit of a temptation trap for the girl whose hotel was only a twenty minute walk away from the Regent Street branch.
Russell & Bromley don't run a sale online, so running to their physical stores is your only hope of snagging a stylish bargain. As I wear flats more frequently than heels, I was searching for flats which were different to what I already had in the wardrobe - and the sale did not disappoint.
We've all been focused on Theresa May's shoes lately, and I for one am happy to admit that I've been a little obsessed with seeing which pair she will wear next. She rotates her collection pretty well, and I was just a shade excited to see two of the styles she has worn recently on sale. Thank you shoe gods!
We've been transfixed by Theresa May's line-up of Russell & Bromley shoes!
I picked up the super sparkly Lo-Fi pump- it really is the most sparkly shoe I've ever owned! Made from a sachetto constructed shimmering glitter fabric, the Lo-Fi has a leather sole and a short heel. The PM was bold in her execution and wore her Lo-Fis on a recent trip to Italy. Its understated elegance makes it a great flat to wear either day or night - and I'll be doing the same!
My second sale purchase was a pair of leopard Frame pumps. My last pair of leopard pumps made a slow journey to the recycling bin, so it was a welcome sight to see these beauties available in my size! These seem to be a favourite of Theresa May's wearing them on a frequent basis over the past several months. Even sweeter to get them on sale! The D'Orsay cut of the pump is particularly flattering, and for those who want a little lift, the pump also comes in a block heel version. For other options check out the Frame range here.
And my third Russell & Bromley purchase was a bit of an impulse buy. Nestled amongst the size 6.5 rack was an amazingly bright pair of pumps by Stuart Weitzman. The Sonic in nappa leather was to be mine. The PM would be proud.
There's still time to snag a bargain in the Russell & Bromley sale! Their list of stores can be found here. I found the staff in the Regent Street and Oxford Street branches particularly helpful.
