As some of you know, I’ve been more than a little bit obsessed with Christian Louboutin’s nude patent ‘Pigalle’ pumps for a while now, and until the glorious day arrives when I can finally make them mine, I’ve been on the lookout for a high street version I can get some wear out of in the meantime.

That made August’s Sarenza Brand Ambassador pick an easy one for me: I’d spotted Buffalo’s ‘Beyza’ pumps early in the month, but unfortunately they’d already sold out in my size, so I decided to wait a while and see if the UK 4 ever came back into stock. When it didn’t, I’m ashamed to admit I did something I’ve sworn not to do, and which I wouldn’t really recommend to anyone else: I ordered the 3.5 instead. Well, I figured a half-size down might not make too much difference to the fit, and luckily I was right: as you would expect, they’re definitely smaller than my usual size, but not by enough to render them unwearable, and after just a couple of hours’ wear around the house, I already couldn’t tell they were a 3.5 rather than a 4: phew! Don’t try this at home, though, kids!

This was a big relief to me, because by the time I’d tried them on with multiple different outfits, and realised that, unsurprisingly, they really DO work with everything, I would’ve hated to have had to return them. These are destined to become a staple for me over the next few months, and I can see them replacing my beloved Carvela ‘Australia’ peep toes (Which have rarely been off my feet since I got them, they’re THAT perfect) as  the most-worn shoes of the Autumn.

These have patent leather uppers, and are a great, go-with-everything shade of beige. Interestingly, the heels are actually a shade lighter than the upper: it’s not quite as obvious in real life as it is in the photos (I actually only noticed it when I looked back at the photos, and I think the flash has made it look much more obvious than it really is) but there is a very slight difference in the shade, which I probably wouldn’t have noticed if I hadn’t been taking photos!
