BHLDN ‘Lovestruck’, £425
If you’re ever looking for a really special pair of shoes, but all of the usual suspects are falling short of your requirements, one good tip is to check out some of the bridalwear ranges. As many brides choose to wear colours other than the traditional white/ivory on their feet these days, you can often find fabulous shoes in shades like gold or silver which will work just as well for non-brides as they will for those planning a trip down the aisle.
I found these ‘Lovestruck’ peep toes at bridal retailer BHLDN, but you wouldn’t necessarily know to look at them that they were designed with weddings in mind. They have versatile gold uppers, a comfortable(ish) 3″ heel and, most importantly, a set of little sequinned hearts dotted around the vamp. They’re very sweet, and although they’re definitely on the pricey side at £425, if the occasion is special enough to warrant the expense, they could just be worth it.
