SHOES: Prada aubergine peep toes
SAVED: Sunday, September 11, 2011
SIDEKICKS: Purple dress, ASOS

Friday’s humidity was long gone by Sunday, but I bravely soldiered on with saving shoes. Because I’m a Shoeper Hero, you see: no weather will stop me!

These shoes are by Prada, and they’re the holder of the coveted title of Most Comfortable Heels I Own:

It’s like wearing slippers, seriously.

OK, it’s nothing like wearing slippers. But they’re so cleverly made that even although thye have a high heel, you feel almost like you’re wearing flats. Plus, the leather is so soft and buttery that they’re a pleasure to wear. More so than most shoes, I mean.

I actually hadn’t included these on the list of shoes I need to save before the end of summer (I have an ACTUAL list, by the way: I’m not just saying that), because as well as being a “wintry” kind of colour,  the toe embellishment is karge enough that it hides a large part of the peep toe, and makes these one of the few pairs of open-toed shoes which I’m happy to wear with tights. I wore them that way last time I saved them, though, so I thought I’d do something slightly different this time.

Shoes on shelves

I have just three pairs of “summer” shoes left to save, and two of those can be worn with tights anyway: I think I can do it. I just need to keep reminding myself that once the summer shoes are out of the way, I still have the rest of the winter ones to get through: I’ve been looking forward to the end of this stage of the challenge as if it’s the end of the whole thing, but I still have a long way to go yet! Roll on February…


  • I love how you just put together a dress and fabulous shoes, it’s so simple yet stunning every time! I guess you have dresses in every possible colour 🙂

  • You look fabulous! The dress is really amazing, the color is sooo beautiful! And together with the shoes, brilliant! I loved your shoes, one can see how soft the leather is, even through pictures! Very nice flower embellishment and great that you only have one more pair of open toes to save! (As you said, two you can wear with tights! Great!)

  • Your dress is such a beautiful colour! I know this is the shoe challenge, but I’m all about the dresses lately, and you have such a great collection of them 🙂 You seem to have a knack for finding dresses in colours and styles that really suit you 🙂

  • I loved those Pradas when you wore them last year, and they are still gorgeous. And you look fab in purple. Do you have that dress in green too, or is it just one that’s similar?

    • I don’t (although if they’d made it in green I’d have bought it!)… Can’t really think of one that’s similar, but I do have a lot of green pencil dresses, they start to blend into one another after a while!
