These shoes arrived a couple of days before I left for my vacation, and I only had time to post a quick iPhone photo in the shoe forum, so here they are again, in all their glory!
These are by Menbur, and they were my Sarenza Brand Ambassador* pick for May. Some of you may remember my original post about these, in which I debated whether I liked the pink or navy version best. As you can see, despite my huge love of navy, I decided to go for the pink version, and I’m glad I did: I’m not really a huge pink wearer, and only the palest shades really work on me, but I think these are close enough to “skin toned” on me for me to be able to wear them in much the same way as I would wear a “nude” pair: i.e., with everything.
(Or almost, everything, anyway: so far it’s rained constantly since I’ve been home, so I haven’t been able to wear them outdoors AT ALL, because of the satin uppers. I have worn them in front of the TV, though, and spent more time looking at the shoes than at the set, so that’s always a good sign…)
This is my first experience of Menbur as a brand, and so far I’m impressed: the shoes are well made and comfortable to wear, with a padded insole and high quality fabric on the upper. I ordered my usual size, and they fit perfectly, so no issues there. Most of all, though, I just love the combination of spots, stripes and bows: three of my very favourite things, all in one shoe – how could I fail to love them?
