I knew I shouldn’t have looked at the Ted Baker website. It almost always results in me adding at least one more item to my ever-growing wishlist, and this time was no exception, because just look at these beauties:
Gorgeous, aren’t they? Those bows are To. Die. For – and I say that as someone who’s seen a LOT of bows in her times, and who’s ended up feeling somewhat jaded with them as a result. It takes one helluva bow these days to really pique my interest, but luckily these ARE one helluva bow, so they’ve definitely done the trick.
At first glance, these looked ivory or cream to me, which made me think of them as awesome bridal shoes. According to the Ted Baker website, however, they’re actually a pale pink, so while they’d STILL make awesome bridal shoes, you’d also be able to wear them after the wedding, too. (Not that you couldn’t do that with white, obviously, but I find it that little bit harder to style white/ivory shoes with a “regular” outfit – they always tend to look a little bit bridal, whatever you wear with them.) Oh, and they also come in a very dark red, which would be perfect for autumn/winter.
Getting away from the bridal theme, my second pick of the day are these Mary Jane court shoes from Office:
I’ve really been enjoying Office’s work, lately. They went through a phase last year where every time I logged onto the site, it seemed to be all sports shoes and Birkenstock sandals, but now they’ve got a nice, understated kind of vibe going on, with simple stilettos and court shoes which would work for the office and afterwards. These Mary Janes are particularly nice, and are one of those styles I could see myself wearing for years to come – if only I could choose between the black and beige versions…
