Karen Millen metallic peep toe shoes, £125
Given the choice, I’ll normally choose gold shoes over silver ones, purely because they work with much more of my wardrobe. I do love a bit of silver too, though, and while I don’t find it to be the MOST versatile metallic in the shoe world, it comes pretty close – especially when used on sparkly evening sling-backsamour of, like these ones by Karen Millen.
These are so glamorous, with their silver leather stiletto heels and chain-mail textured uppers. There’s also a really nice little asymmetric toe, with just a flash of leather peeking out from under it:
These are the kind of shoes I think you could easily scroll past on a website, allowing them to be lost amongst a sea of similarly-shaped metallic pumps. It’s only when you take a look at the close-up, and see the detail of the design, and the glamour of that shiny upper, that they go from being a nice shoe to a must-have: or a “would-very-much-like-to-have” at least.
I’ll tell you something else I’d like to have: this amazing sequin skirt by Alice + Olivia:
sequin skirt and silver shoes:
♥ Alice & Olivia skirt ♥ Toteme Rocha silk camisole ♥ Shourouk Daktari shoulder bag ♥ Allurez earrings
I bought a sequinned skirt last Christmas, and was a little worried I’d never wear it, but, much to my surprise, it quickly became one of my favourite items for the festive season, and much easier to style than I’d anticipated! I normally wear mine with a sweater and pumps, but for this look I’ve styled it for a dressier occasion. The shoes aren’t quite the same shade of colour as the skirt here, but I think they’re close enough for it not to matter, especially considering they wouldn’t be right next to it when you were wearing them!
That asymetric toe is calling my name! Lovely.
