Kurt Geiger ‘Juniper’ red patent sandals, £250

I know I’ve been showing you a lot of red shoes lately, but in my defence:

1. You’re probably used to that by now, aren’t you?


2. When shoe brands keep making footwear as fabulous as this, can you really blame me?

These sandals are by Kurt Geiger, and the shape really reminds me of a couple of pairs of vintage sandals I own: they have the same asymmetric front, the same open toe, and the same d’orsay cut sides. The overall effect is a very delicate one, but with tons of impact, thanks to that show-stopping red upper. I really love these, and would happily buy a pair, but… they’re £250. Ah well, if I can’t buy them, at least I can create a totally imaginary outfit to wear with them, can’t I?

Dorothy Perkins are currently selling this skirt in three different colours: navy, lilac and white. I’d happily buy all three if I possibly could, but this navy version is sold out in my size, which is a shame, because I love the look of navy with red, and although it’s a colour that makes a great alternative to black (same classic feel, but a little less harsh against paler complexions), it’s not always an easy shade to find. Luckily, however, these shoes will work with plenty of other colours and styles, too: as always with red shoes, I like the idea of wearing them with jeans, which will help to tone them down a little, if the colour is slightly too bright for your tastes. And if you want to go in completely the opposite direction, they’d be amazing with white!
