ASOS ‘Holly’ flower-trimmed sandals

ASOS Holly flower sandals

ASOS  ‘Holly’ flower-embellished sandals, £45

These sandals are also available in an all-cream upper, but, as nice as they are, I really liked the contrast of this two-tone version, which is probably also a little more practical: I don’t think cream suede (or suedette, as the case may be), and I would really be a great combination, somehow!

Black and cream, however, IS a great combination, and the huge flowers lining the t-bar strap of these sandals help dress up the “barely there” style nicely. Without them, these would be just one of many shoes in this style which have been released this spring/summer: that wouldn’t be a bad thing, of course (You can always use a pair of strappy sandals, can’t you?), but if you’re looking for something that touch more special, these could well be it.

These have a high stiletto heel, and ASOS have filed them under their “wedding shoes” section, which gives you some idea of the kind of occasion these are most likely to be seen at: not just weddings themselves, of course, but any similarly dressy event, although I can also imagine them wearing them to the pub, say, with something like jeans and a pretty top. I didn’t have a quick drink at the local pub in mind when I put together the outfit below, however:

red asymmetric dress

What to wear with ASOS barley-there sandals:

♥  Karen Millen dress  ♥  Perrin Paris leather wrist clutch  ♥  Sole Society bracelet 

This red dress has caught my eye every time I’ve looked at the Karen Millen website recently, and I’ve kept coming back to it even although:

a) I can’t wear red


b) I don’t normally like asymmetric hems

This particular hem is interesting, however, because the asymmetry runs from side to side, rather than from front-to-back, as is more usual. I’m still not convinced I’d like it in real life, but it sure looks pretty in the photo!
