Just a little bit of Shoe Porn for Louboutin lovers, to wind down our Thursday afternoon!
Paris and Nicky Hilton both wore Christian Louboutin to a benefit in L.A. last night: Paris is on the left of the photo above, wearing the heeled version of the ‘Love’ pumps I showed you last year, while Nicky is wearing a fabulous pair of studded peep toes. I actually thought I was over studs on shoes, but then I spotted Blake Lively wearing these very shoes in an episode of Gossip Girl earlier this month, and was reminded of how much I loved them when I saw them in person last year! They’re definitely not to everyone’s taste, of course, and I suspect the outfits the Hiltons chose to wear with these shoes will be even LESS to everyone’s taste, but take a look under the jump if you want to see for yourself!
I need your help, please (:
I know you sometimes like to help lowly citizens such as myself find the perfect shoes for their dresses etc…
soo, my dilemma is, I have found a great dress for prom that I love but I can’t find shoes for it. My parent’s budget for the shoes is £30 and I can’t think of what will go with it
The dress in question is >> http://www.frenchconnection.com/product/Woman+Collections+Dresses/71EK3/Wendy+Cotton+Strappy+Dress.htm
in the dark blue colour!
Please, Please help me out, you would be my hero forever if you can find something (not that you aren’t already 😉 )
Well, it’s quite hard to suggest a specific shoe without knowing what kind of heel height you prefer, and what your taste is, but I think the zip detail on the dress calls for a similarly “tough” kind of shoe – maybe a cage sandal or a gladiator style. I like metallics with dark blue, and with £30 to spend I think your best bet is somewhere like New Look, so maybe something like this:
or if you prefer a lower heel, maybe this:
Gold would really work better, as it would pick up the colour of the zip: these would be ideal as they also have a zip at the front:
They’re £40, butDorothy Perkins currently have 20% off everything, which would bring them down to just over your budget at £32. These are the ones I’d go for if I were wearing that dress, but your taste may be completely different, obviously!
Hope this helps a little 🙂
The Dorothy Perkins shoes are perfect! Thankyou sooo much 😀
and with everything 20% off the site it’s like, the perfect excuse just to err ‘treat’ myself in store aswell haha
I hope shoe karma rewards you well! 😀
You’re welcome, glad I was able to help 🙂
Enjoy the prom!
