Shoe Save # 52/77: Pink Platforms

pink satin platform shoes

WHAT: Pink Dune platforms
WHEN: Saturday, October 15th, 2011
WITH: Black dress (River Island)

These shoes are from Dune-via-TKMaxx, and I was actually a little bit worried about how I’d manage to save them, because the bright  pink satin uppers don’t really lend themselves to casual wear, and I don’t tend to go to a lot of parties. Luckily, we had a very special party to attend on Saturday night (more details about that on my personal blog, if anyone’s interested), so out came the pink shoes!

Despite being high, these are surprisingly comfortable, and I managed to dance in them all night without any issues. The shoes themselves weren’t quite so lucky, however, and ended up looking a little bit the worse for all that dancing – the perils of satin uppers, I guess!

I may have saved these shoes, however, but I’m actually no further forward with my Shoe Challenge, because as you may have noticed from the title of this post, my shoe collection increased by two more pairs this week (more on those later!) one step forward, two steps back! If my calculations are right (and, er, they’re probably not), by the end of this week we’ll have just 16 Shoe-Saving weeks left, and I have 25 pairs left to save: time to step up my game, I think!
