Topshop ‘Gewenda‘, £58
If, like me, you missed out on Topshop’s fabulous ‘Gwenda’ pumps when they were first released, you might be pleased to know the style is back for Spring, in a range of colours which included this gorgeous, soft lilac. Nothing says springtime like pastel colours, and lilac is one of the lesser-seen shades, which is surprising given how pretty it is. It’s also a nice alternative to pink, for those of you who don’t “do” pink, because it’s still very soft and feminine, but without that overly “girlie” feel that pink can often have.
I’ve already written about the shape of these shoes at length, so I’ll say no more, other than to note that I still think they’re one of the nicest pumps available on the high street right now, and I’m probably destined to search eBay forever more for the green or red versions which I should have bought at the time, but didn’t. If you don’t want to make the same mistake with these ones, you can buy them here: they’re also still available in orange, black and white.
