Kurt Geiger does it again!
My favourite brand of the moment (or of this week, at least), has once again released a real show-stopper of a shoe, this time from the Carvela line. These ‘Gondola’ sandals offer a wonderful twist on the t-bar sandal, with a high ankle strap leading down to a multi-layered bow. That bow is studded with tiny little crystals, as are the stiletto heels, but the effect is still fairly understated, all things considered. Delicate and lovely, ‘Gondola’ has a 120 mm heel, so while I’m tempted to describe these as “dancing shoes” (and they do look like they’d be very at home on a dance floor, don’t you think?), these are probably best saved for seasoned stiletto-wearers only: unless, of course, you’re planning to simply take them from car-to-bar, and then spend the rest of the evening admiring them. It would be tempting, I have to admit.
These shoes have a suedette upper, which might make the price seem a little high. As the owner of several pairs of shoes from this brand, all I can tell you is that I’ve always been happy with the quality: I haven’t, however, seen these particular shoes in person, so if you have, maybe you can fill us in! In the meantime, here’s one way to style these, for a night on the town:
The little red dress is almost as much of a classic as the oft-mentioned LBD: I’ve yet to find one that works well with my colouring (I know SO many redheads who look absolutely stunning in red, but I’m unfortunately not one of them!), but I live in hope!
