Shoes: Vivienne Westwood for Melissa Lady Dargon shoes in pink glitter (c/o Sarenza)
Saved: Throughout August and September 2011
I feel like I’ve let these shoes down.
They’re such pretty, pink sparkly things that they really deserve to be worn with some fairytale concoction of a dress: some frothy, frivolous thing that would do the shoes justice. Alas, however, not only does my lifestyle not produce much of a need for fairytale party dresses, I fear the time for bare legs has now passed, so every time I’ve worn these since I got them, it’s been with some boring combination of jeans and tops. Such is life.
I’ve actually worn these a fair bit in the few weeks I’ve owned them, the most recent occasion being this Friday, when I wore them with … jeans and a top. The winter rot has already set in, people. I haven’t even switched over my wardrobe yet, and already I’m bored to death with winter fashion: this does NOT bode well for the rest of the year!
Still, at least I know one thing: I’ll have no problems “saving” these next year, when the warmer weather finally arrives. In the short time I’ve owned them, they’ve quickly become one of my favourite pairs of shoes, so while I didn’t get a chance to wear them with a suitably fabulous outfit this year, there’s always next summer!
And in the meantime, they make some pretty good eye candy!
