Ever visited a website and instantly wished you hadn’t?
It happened to me yesterday when I clicked a link on Twitter and found myself clicking “buy now” on a dress in a colour I already have more than my fair share of dresses in (I’ll leave you to work that one out for yourselves, shall I?), and then it happened again today when I decided to take a quick look at Dorothy Perkins, only to find these teal suede shoes featured on the homepage.
Now, I love teal. I don’t have enough teal in my life. And I love shoes with bows: particularly when the bow in question is attached to a strap, just like this one. I can’t seem to see a pair of shoes in this particular style without wanting to pick them up and stroke them, but I think this is the first time I’ve found a pair in thus particular colour, which is why I had to show you them.
While I’m here, I may as well show you the red version, too:
Red, as I’ve mentioned a few times, is a shade than can be hard to get right on shoes and clothes, and it’s very easy for it to look too “brash”. I think that could be in danger of happening here, although I’ll reserve judgement for when I see these in person, because colours can look very different in photographs to how they look in real life, too.
I’ve bought more than enough pairs of shoes already this month, so I’m going to turn away from these shoes and leave them to you. You can click here to buy them.
