I don’t know about you, but I do like to be beside the seaside.
I mean, not right now, obviously. The current weather conditions would make that an uncomfortable experience to say the least, but whether you’re dealing with freezing temperatures, high winds, or any of the other extreme weather conditions being unleashed on the Northern Hemisphere right now, Charlotte Olympia’s seaside-themed summer shoe collection will allow you to at least dream of better days to come.
These shoes are all in the designer’s trademark whimsical style, and range from the fishy ‘Catchy of the Day’ platforms (Feet and fish don’t seem like a GREAT combination, I have to say, but maybe that’s just me…) to the vintage-inspired ‘Siren Mermaid’ t-straps. The latter shoe is my favourite of the bunch: I could live without the mermaid doll itself, but I do like the shimmering colour combination, and the old-fahioned glamour of the style. Would it be too much to chop off t hat doll’s head, do you think?
My least-favourite, meanwhile, would have to be the ‘Elsa Lobster’ t-straps. It’s not just the shoes themselves, however: I have a serious phobia of crustaceans, and lobsters are the LAST things I want adorning my feet, or any other part of my body.
(OK, it IS just the shoes, actually. I do have a crustacean phobia, but these would be way too “novelty” for me, irrespective of that little fact.)
Take a look at the collection below, and don’t forget to tell me what you think!
