Remember the orange Matalan frill-fronted pumps I tried on a couple of weeks ago? Even although I know I’d have real problems styling them, and everyone I know would laugh at them (the town I live in isn’t exactly what you’d call “fashion forward”, to put it politely), I’ve been kinda regretting not buying them. Especially since Janine and Gemma got them.
I’m starting to think those shoes may not attract as many stares as I first thought, though, because frill-fronted footwear seems to be “the thing” at the moment, and just to prove it, here comes Topshop, with their ‘Passion’ frill sandals. These aren’t really “designer-inspired” in the same way that the Matalan shoes were: the Matalan ones were almost identical to the Christian Louboutin for Philip Lim ‘Dillian’ pumps , whereas these are only similar in that they have a ruffle on the front. They are a summery take on the look, though, and they come in blue, yellow and black, so if you like this look, you can buy them from Topshop, for £95.
Me, I’ll be sticking to Matalan.
BUY: Topshop ‘Passion’ frilled sandals, £95
I don’t like the sole. Platform. Whatever you want to call it. Louboutin does it best and you know it.
