I know what you’re thinking: it’s ages since Ruth did a giveaway. Bloody hell. Selfish cow. I wish she’d do a giveaway – preferably with those amazing Oxblood suede shoes she showed in her latest fashion shoot. Well, dear readers: you did the thinking, and I telepathically listened! I have a quite wonderful giveaway for you this week: some gorgeous, gorgeous LK Bennett accessories to see you through the colder months.
Not only do I have a pair of the re-launched Sledge* heels from LK Bennett (in suede, worth £195), one lucky reader will also receive a Catrina* leather tote bag worth £295! The Sledge is one of LK Bennett’s signature shoe shapes, but it has been redesigned with a sleeker silhouette and it is so smart and sexy.
The Catrina is what I call a “posh” bag – structured, with shortish top handles that you sort of rest in the crook of your arm in that very ladylike way that very ladylike people do. Always reminds me of the chic women you see striding into the Parisian boutiques, shoulder-robing their Chanel jackets!
Both the shoes and bag are in Oxblood, which I do declare is the colour of the season. A rich, warm burgundy, it couldn’t really be any more autumnal! Looks great with pale denim, as in the top photo, but also with the tweeds and checks and animal prints that are so popular at the moment.
To be in with a chance of winning this fabulous accessory duo, all you need to do is leave a comment below telling me how much you love me, what you love most about me, and why I would be your one person you’d spend the rest of your life with on a desert island, if you were stranded on a desert island.
Not really, HA! Just leave a comment, any comment, and one reader will be picked at random this Friday (the 13th October) at noon, when the giveaway closes. UK only I’m afraid, due to the ridiculously complicated rules regarding international giveaways, and please read full T&Cs here.
