This is a really quick post, so I haven’t had time to put together an outfit suggestion for these shoes, but I just couldn’t let you all go off for the long weekend without first of all showing you this amazing example of Shoe Kryptonite from Topshop, could I?
These are the ‘Glory’ pumps, which have become a Topshop staple over the past few months. They’ve released them in a selection of colours, and I’ve yet to see one I didn’t like: these have that classic, pointed shape, which is the perfect backdrop for any number of prints and patterns. The red suede version of these have been on my wish list for a while now, but there’s absolutely no doubt in mind that this floral print version is my absolute favourite – so much so that I’m declaring them to be Shoe Kryptonite, lethal to Shoeper Bank Accounts.
(Actually, I take that back: there IS doubt in my mind. I honestly can’t decide which colour I like best – the pink or the blue!)
This is the second piece of Shoe Kryptonite to come from Topshop in the last few weeks, and if they continue like this, I’ll probably be bankrupt by the end of the summer. The brand has definitely been my favourite destination for shoes (and also for full skirts, let’s be honest…) on the high street recently: I think £58 is a pretty reasonable price, especially considering that these are just as pretty by similar styles we’ve been seeing from much higher-end brands. The floral print heel is definitely having a fashion “moment”this season, but it’s also true to say that florals will probably never go OUT of fashion for spring, and nor will pointed toe pumps, so that just leaves us with one question:
pink or blue?
