OK, winter, you win: I will start thinking about shoes that are appropriate for your cooler climes, even although I’d much rather be thinking about summer.
These Blink shoes may not be summery, exactly (or even at all), but there’s still a lot to love about them. There’s the tweed upper, for one. Tweed never fails to make me think of 40s movies, leather gloves, jackets with nipped-in waists, pencil skirts… oh, lots of good things, basically. These shoes would fit seamlessly into that whole aethetic: they’re sophisticated, and just a little bit sexy, and the leather bow on the front provides a nice little finishing touch.
These have a pointed toe, but the hidden platform helps make it look a little less aggressive (or 80s-influenced) than some other pointed toes I could mention, and I think it actually works really well with this particular style of shoe.
When I first laid eyes on these, I assumed they were going to be expensive. They are, however, just £44 at Spartoo: click here to buy them.
I love them, but I don’t think I could get past the pointed toes on these ones… Too bad, because at that price, temptation might have gotten the better of me.
I love tweed shoes, and this pair is sweet, but with round toes it would be on my wish list, but pointed… no.
I like them! I hope they’ll come up to my door one day and ask me if I want to come out and play.
I have had this style of heel on my Want List for ages. I came so close to buying a similar pair on eBay a couple weeks ago (they were pure grey though, not tweed), but got outbid in the last thirty seconds. I haven’t been able to find a good pair since. I like these a lot and will definitely put them on my consider list.
I am not usually a fan of tweed but these are cute!
