Tory Burch ‘Chantalle’, £152.50
I’ve never been much of a Tory Burch fan (the famous, logo flats do absolutely nothing for me), but I’m a HUGE fan of these ‘Chantalle’ peep toes. HUGE. Massive. In fact, as you can see, I’ve even gone so far as to declare them to be Shoe Kryptonite, and the fact that they’re currently on sale makes them even harder for me to resist.
With a beautiful, brocade upper in pale blue and gold, these have a truly luxurious feel to them, and a huge dose of glamour. There’s also a slightly vintage feel, which makes me feel these would be right at home in the ballroom of some fabulous French châteaux, although I hope they’d be equally at home anywhere else you chose to wear them. Well, we can’t all be swishing around ballrooms all day, can we?
So, where would you wear a shoe like this, and what with? They’re very definitely party/special occasion shoes, and could even make a nice twist on a “something blue” for a bride. If you’re looking for something slightly more casual, however (Although I think “casual” is the wrong word here!), or if you just like the fabric, Tory Burch also have some matching pants:
I kind of love these, but I realise they won’t be to everyone’s taste, so if they’re not to yours, don’t worry: black or white would work just as well, and allow you to work some fabulous shoes into your everyday wardrobe a little more easily.
