His Name Is Glimmer

Hat - Topman
Jumper - H&M
Backpack - c/o Rokit Vintage

For as long as I can remember I have been obsessed with Underground shoes - to the point where some of my friends still shout 'CREEPERS' at me in a super welsh accent whenever they see me. So you can imagine when I won their Jungle Boot instagram competition I was absolutely over the moon! Unfortunately (and after a lot of unsuccessful trying), the jungle boots can't actually be made in my size - damn my big feet. Underground, however, very kindly allowed me to choose an alternative prize from the vast selection of shoes available at their Berwick street store. I was like a kid in a candy shop. It was so hard to choose! I tried on so many pairs I think the store manager must have been sick of me by the end. Eventually I settled on the Apollo single sole creeper, a style I already own and love in Black suede, but this time in silver mirrored leather - I am absolutely in love with them!! The metallic leather gives them a really cool twist, and will add the statement to almost any outfit. For this look I decided to make it all about the shoes, keeping the outfit entirely black with some subtle winter layering. I tried to keep silver details running throughout the outfit to pick up on the shimmer of the shoes, in the form of the zip on my chunky black roll neck, and the tassel detail on my backpack. Head to the underground website here to shop the entire collection yourself, including the vast range of creepers and the amazing jungle boots that I couldn't squish my clown feet into!
