Buffalo ‘Biffa’, £84
Yup, it’s another pair of bow-front court shoes, but you’ll have to excuse the overdose of this style today because, like the Zara pumps I featured this morning, this is another shoe that had me at ‘hello’. Seriously, how could I possibly be expected to resist the lethal combination of a cobalt blue upper, a pointed toe, and a fabulous, multi-layered bow? It’s just not possible.
Speaking of the bow, this one is probably ringing the ‘Shoe Deja Vu’ alarm for many of you: it’s the same style as the bow on the Carvela ‘Assemble’ pumps, which I’ve written about multiple times now, and which Buffalo themselves created a version of just last season. That version was called ‘Berline’: this one is ‘Biffa’, and is all-but identical but for the upper, which is a bright blue suede effect on this shoe, as opposed to the white glitter of its predecessor. This is another favourite shade of mine, and I’ve been happy to see quite a lot of it in stores for fall 2013. In fact, I’ve had my eye on this ASOS midi skirt for a while now:
It looks to be a slight;y brighter blue than the shoes, but could possibly still work, if you wanted to go the “matchy matchy” route. And if not, I’m sure you’ll be able to find plenty of other ways to wear these: you might want to snap them up quickly if you love them, though – they’re already low in stock in some sizes.
Oh my, they are lovely! I need more shoes with bows. I’m not even joking.
