Ravel ‘Liv’, £55
If you’ve been reading this site for a long time, you probably know me well enough by now to realise that I’m a bit of a sucker for a peep toe, and the simpler the better. They’re the kind of shoes that many people would find easy to overlook, but these Ravel heels has the power to stop me in my tracks: they’re only £55, but the curvy shape is to die for, and would be pretty hard for me to resist, regardless of the colour of the upper.
As far as that goes, these come in pink and peach – both great, summery colours, and I’m struggling to decide which I prefer. The peach version would probably be more versatile, and is very close to what some of us would consider “nude”, but at the same time, I actually think the pink version might just have the edge over them. These would look fantastic with sky blue, or even a pale yellow or green, to create a candy-coloured outfit which would brighten up the dreariest of days.
As you’ve probably guessed from the price tag, these have synthetic uppers, however the insole is leather, so they should be fairly comfortable (or as comfortable as a heel this height can be), as well as being a bit of a bargain. Is it greedy of me to wish they’d release them in red and black, too? (And maybe pale blue? And mint?)
They are simply beautiful. But my god are they high!
