These shoes are from last summer, and honestly, the fact that it’s taken me until now to discover them makes me seriously worry that my shoeper powers are starting to fail me. I mean,the fact that I’ve gone for MONTHS now without knowing these shoes existed, or showing them to you, is just criminal, no? The pink upper? The polka dots? The bow? The KNOTTED BOW? They have all of the ingredients of the perfect summer shoe, and the fact that I seem to have developed a (probably unhealthy) obsession with pink this year just makes them all the more delectable.
There is a silver lining to this cloud, however. If I HAD found these shoes back in the summer, they’d have been £448, and I wouldn’t even have considered buying them, even although I’d have very much wanted to. Because I’ve found them in December, though, they’re now on sale, and down to £179. That means… well, it means I STILL can’t afford them, unfortunately, but YOU may be able to. It’s a fairly big price-drop after all, and brings them into the same kind of range you might consider paying for a pair of Kurt Geigers or similar, so it’s not too shabby. This is why I’m a big advocate of shoe shopping out of season: and why I changed the rules of the Shoe Challenge this year to accommodate that fact.
Speaking of the Shoe Challenge…
How would you save pink, polka dot sandals?
This is the kind of “challenge” I relish, and I think there are tons of ways to wear these: they’re the type of shoes that you’re supposed to have fun with, so you may as well let your imagination run wild. I think they’d look good with jeans, but because I’m me, and I just can’t seem to stop myself, I’ve gone for a Jackie O inspired look, with big sunglasses and a silk scarf to tie over your hair in the wind. I somehow doubt Jackie herself would’ve worn these particular shoes, mind you, but hey: it’s MY imagination, and in it, not only would I be wearing this outfit, I’d apparently have a Chloe ‘Marcie’ bag to go with it. A girl can dream, right?
