SHOES: Miss Selfridge red ‘Polly’ platforms (via eBay)
SAVED: Saturday, January 14th
With all of the effort I put into finding these shoes, you may be surprised that it’s taken me this long to get round to actually saving them. It’s not that I haven’t been wearing them, though: it’s just that I haven’t really been thrilled with any of the outfits I’ve worn them with, this one being no exception, which is why I didn’t bother to photograph it.
These shoes aren’t the easiest for me to wear, I must admit, although every time I do, I always get lots of compliments on them, and I love looking down at them. But the combination of the very bright red upper and the chunkiness of the style means that they have to be styled carefully. This time, I balanced out the chunkiness with a pair of cropped pants (skinny ones will just make me look like I have enormous feet if I try to wear them with these shoes). Next time, I’ll try and come up with something a little more interesting!
