WHAT: Carvela ‘Assess’ platforms, c/o Sarenza
WHEN: Saturday, July 16th, 2011
WHERE: Out celebrating our Trademark application being approved!
WITH: Black Halo Jackie O dress, c/o Shopbop, hair bow (American Apparel)
What was that I was saying about only wearing summery shoes, until they’d all been saved? Ah, well, sometimes you just have to go with your heart…
After getting good news about our trademark application on Saturday morning, Shoeperman and I felt like we should really go out and celebrate, and, well, I felt like I should totally overdress for the occasion, as usual.
Oh, who am I kidding? I’d been absolutely desperate to wear this dress, which I got from our site sponsors, Shopbop, and as I always say, if you don’t happen to have a good reason to get all dressed up, you may as well manufacture one. Then there was the small matter of these shoes:
As some of you may recall, I got these Carvela platforms as part of the Sarenza brand ambassador programme a couple of months ago, and wasn’t quite sure what to wear them with. I was trying to avoid the obvious option of little-black-dress, but when it came down to it… I went for a little black dress. Ah, well.
The eagle-eyed among you may notice the latest addition to my shoe collection on the shelves behind me. More about that soon: for now, let’s just say that the people at Sarenza really aren’t making the Shoe Challenge easy on me! (Not that I’m complaining, of course: if there are shoes to be worn, then I’m there, people, like the shoe superhero I am. And also like the shopaholic I am.)
The weather hasn’t been quite as bad as predicted over the past few days, but it’s been bad enough that I’ve been starting to worry about how on earth I’m going to manage to save all of the peep toes and sandals by winter. I did a quick count at the weekend, and I figure I have at least 20 pairs that will need to be worn by the end of August/start of September, assuming that we’re not lucky enough to get an Indian summer again. Better get planning outfits, then!
P.S. These shoes have now been reduced in price in the Sarenza sale, so click here if you want to buy a pair!
