Charlotte Olympia peep toes, 650 euros
When I was a little girl, my mum had a pair of marabou slippers which she’d wear around the house, and which my younger self thought were the most glamorous things in the world, like, EVER. Fast-forward to today, and I must admit, I still have a bit of a soft spot for the style, which I always imagine wearing with a silk negligée, while lounging around a luxurious boudoir, sipping champagne and eating strawberries.
Of course, that little scenario is destined to remain a daydream. The shoes, however, could well become a reality (for you, if not for me…), thanks to the existence of these peach satin peep toes, by Charlotte Olympia. Now, I’ll be the first to admit that I haven’t been a huge fan of some of the recent Charlotte Olympia offerings, although I AM a big fan of the brand in general. Those poodles, however, took the art of whimsy WAY too far, whereas these shoes, by comparison, get it just right. They’re fluffy, they’re girlie, they’re totally impractical for most of our daily lives, and yet they’re so fun and decadent that I just can’t help but love them. Or to imagine myself wearing them while lounging around a glamorous boudoir, sipping… oh, you get the picture.
Do you want to get the shoes, though? If you do, these are available at Colette.
No thank you. I do not need fluffy pompoms on my feet.
