How sweet are these?
Miss L Fire, like Irregular Choice, is one of those brands I generally just admire from afar, because while I like the look of the shoes, they’re often just a little too twee for my tastes. Case in point:
Now, these are absolutely adorable, right? They’re called ‘Gelatto’ – for obvious reasons – and they’d be absolutely perfect on a hot summer’s day, with a cute sundress, and, of course, an ice-cream cone as an (edible) accessory. Would I buy/wear them? Well, probably not, to be honest, but that doesn’t make them any less cute to look at, does it? As for the shoes at the top of the page, meanwhile – now those I can actually imagine wearing. I know there are plenty of people who’d consider them a little too sweet to be wholesome, but paired with a simple white dress, or even a classic ‘jeans-and-top’ ensemble, I think they could look amazing – and there’s no denying that they’re the kind of shoes that will always turn heads.
This is a brand that’s best known for it’s quirky, slightly retro-inspired or kitsch designs: the shoes are a favourite of those who love the pin-up style, and it’s not hard to see why – some of these shoes look like they were pretty much made to be worn with a 50s-inspired dress, in a novelty print. Failing that, as I said, they’d work easily with much more modern, simple ensembles: jeans are always my fallback when I have an amazing pair of shoes which I want to make the focus of the outfit, but I’m guessing that if you’re the kind of person who’s drawn to shoes like these, you’re probably no stranger to creative dressing, so let your imagination run wild – because why on earth not?
How would you wear either of these?
