Sorry for yet more shoe posts, I promise I’ll do some actual outfit posts once my skin gets back to normal (thanks a lot MAC pressed powder!) I’m sure it’s quite obvious now that I have a serious addiction, but I had to show these off, my new favorites, I think these are the first pair of non-black shoes I haven’t even contemplated dying black, they are just perfect as they are.

I’ve been collecting Finsk shoes for quite a few years now, it started off with a ruched pair of platform ankle boots from the collaboration with the (now defunct) shoe chain Faith, they were in the sale, crammed amongst all the others, but they stood out, every other shoe looked boring next to them. I didn’t have the money to, but I brought them anyway. I’d never heard of Finsk until then, but I got home & immediately looked the brand up & knew I had to have more shoes like this. I love contradicting elements in design, hard but soft, structured but organic & Julia Lundsten does this so well with Finsk.

New books too, my other addiction, ‘Empire of Death’ is a collection of gorgeous photos from Ossuaries & Charnel Houses from all over the world & is one of the most beautiful books I’ve seen in a long time. I’ve always been drawn to quite macabre & dark subjects like this, so I find it fascinating & quite moving, but I’m sure there’s a lot that would view it as really rather disgusting & maybe even disrespectful. Also when I spotted Hellboy, now in nice chunky hard back ‘library editions’, being one of my favorite comics, I couldn’t resist!

    I’ve always loved Finsk shoes, but doubted their level of comfort! How are the shoes in term of wearability?

    They are suprisingly comfortable, some of the most comfortable pairs i own, I think the wedges are much comfier than the heels they have though. If you’re used to wearing high heels, then I think you’ll find them pretty easy to walk in, they are quite heavy though which might take a little getting used to, but I much preffer a good chunky, stompy shoe compared to say stilettoes, which I absolutely cannot walk in thanks to a dodgy ankle!

    Gorgeous shoes hun, love the graphic look of Finsk in general.. I don’t remember where I saw my first pair, possibly on your blog :-) I also have a dodgy ankle that I keep spraining once every year or so, and find wedges so much easier to walk in!

    My dear,
    I found your blog by chance, while peeking others and I decided to check it out! I’m glad I did it, because I am really delighted with yours. It’s beautiful, well structured, interesting, sweet amazing [probably your own qualities right?] and it has completely got me hooked. I think we’re going to get along just fine! ;)
    I’d like to invite you to follow each other. I’d be very pleased.
    I wish you lots of success and will surely come back often
    kisses

    The heel really makes these shoes for me… though I’d be tempted to dye the straps black!
