Not for the first time (and definitely not for the last time, either), I find myself wishing international shopping wasn’t quite so expensive.
I found these shoes at Heels.com, which is a US-based site. They do ship internationally, but I know from bitter experience that once you add on the customs and import duties, plus the shipping fee itself, those $54.99 shoes can almost double in price.
If that wasn’t the case, I’d be sorely tempted by these ‘Federica’ shoes. This is a style that’s been repeated frequently over the past couple of years, by brands like Carvela and Steve Madden, to name but two. That multi-layered bow is bow a familiar sight, but it’s one I never get tired of, and when its attached to a bright red, pointed pump – well, that just makes it even better, doesn’t it?
Red shoes are a shoeper staple, and I wear them all year round. For many people, however, they really come into their own at holiday time, adding a touch of festive flair to any outfit.
This outfit is actually one which could work at any time of year (with perhaps just a couple of modifications for the season), although a little sparkly sweater will always help dress the look up just a little bit.
This skirt, meanwhile, is yet another Paper Dolls pick and I definitely need to make a note to check out this brand in more detail in the new year: it’s polka-dot perfection, and would look just as good on a summer’s day as it would as part of a winter evening ensemble.
