I love Dune – but it’s a brand I usually tend to associate with classic, timeless styles, as opposed to very fashion-forward ones, so I have to admit to being a little bit surprised (although not in a bad way) when I came across these ‘Dream Girl’ sandals on their website a couple of weeks ago.
That’s not to say that these shoes are particularly out there, obviously – I mean, we’ve seen worse, haven’t we? They are, however, just a little bit different from the usual styles we see at Dune – or elsewhere, for that matter – and I kind of love them for it, because they’re so different from all of the low, blocky heels and gingham prints we’ve been seeing lately. These, by contrast, are real “rock star” shoes: or, at least, that’s how I think of them, anyway. The red and blue print also have a bit of a super-hero feel to them (Red and blue will do that, I find: thanks, Superman!), while the silver and gold version are a little more delicate and ethereal. (And are the ones I’d probably choose myself, just in case you were wondering.)
If you’re not keen on heels, however, there’s also a flat version of these available, and they’re almost as eye-catching, although a little less expensive. The flats are cute, but I figure if you’re going to wear shoes like this, you may as well go all out with them, so I’d choose the heels, and wear then with either a simple dress, or a pair of skinny, cropped trousers. They’re the kind of thing that would be perfect for a big night out: and hey – I guess if you really wanted to, you could also buy the matching flats, and change into them if your feet got sore by the end of the night!
