It happened again: River Island added so many new shoes to their site, all at the same time, that I had no option but to show you them all rather than choosing just one. If I was FORCED to choose just one, though, I know exactly which pair I’d pick:
Stripe slingbacks, £55
These black and white stripe slingbacks have gone straight onto my wishlist. I absolutely LOVE the bold print, and the shape is perfect, too. These are just so much fun, and while I’d like them even more without the slingback, I don’t object to slingbacks in the way so many people seem to, so I could definitely live with it.
These shoes, meanwhile, fall into the small, but distinctive, category of “shoes which remind me of lingerie”. They look a bit like they belong in a French boudoir, don’t they? They’re pretty, but I have no idea how or when I’d wear them. I’d give it my best shot, though…
If you were hoping to avoid glitter this season, I’m afraid you’re going to be sorely disappointed.
Yes, it’s that’s distinctive “River Island bow”, which now seems to be popping up everywhere. I guess you know you have a popular design when other brands start copying you, right? This time it’s attached to a beigey-pink Mary Jane.
Finally, for something completely different:
Gold mid-calf boots, £80
I don’t wear flat boots unless I absolutely have to. If I absolutely had to wear these ones, though, I’d at least be able to take comfort in the fact that they’re probably as “glamorous” as a pair of flat boots can get.
What do you think of this selection?
