Head Over Heels Black Madore Bow Sandals, £35
Head Over Heels is the younger, lower-priced sister of Dune, but although the price-point may be lower, I personally think the design is on a par with some of the more expensive brands out there. (And while I can’t speak for the quality of these particular shoes, I do own a pair of Head Over Heels shoes myself, and have absolutely no complaints!)
These shoes are another classic evening style, with a d’orsay cut side, a stiletto heel, and a double-bow on the toe. This is a style we see over and over, and because of that, it can be easy to dismiss them as being a little on the boring side. It may be overdone, however, but this style never seems to become any less popular, and there’s a good reason for that: these are the kind of “zero-thought” shoes that you can throw on for any special event and just know they’re going to work. The lace makes these ones extra special, and the black colour should be very versatile.
Vivienne Westwood Anglomania ‘Sunday’ dress, £485
The shoes were inexpensive, so I decided to splash out a little on the dress (figuratively speaking, that is – I didn’t actually buy it, as much as I’d have liked to!). This is Vivienne Westwood’s ‘Sunday’ dress, and if you’re a fan of the brand, I’m sure you’ll be familiar with the design, and also with the emerald green colour, which Vivienne Westwood has released a version of this dress in before. I love the colour, but I also love the shape of this dress, which is a great combination of classic and contemporary, with the asymmetric skirt and folded detailing at the neckline. This is the kind of dress that makes such a statement on its own that it needs little in the way of accessorizing- just add heels!
Great post, I love it!
I’ve recently bought a new outfit and couldn’t find shoes to match anywhere and these are PERFECT!
