Shoe Save # 86: Get Knotted

zara toecap court shoes, Marc Jacobs bag

SHOES: Zara toecap court shoes
SAVED: Tuesday, January 17th, 2012
WITH: Zara pants; D&G shirt (ancient); Primark scarf; Marc by Marc Jacobs bag & Michael Kors watch (both c/o Shopbop)

Some of you may recall me saying a few months ago that if these shoesΒ ever ended up in the Zara sale, I’d probably buy a pair. Well, to make a long story short (and trust me, it’s a very long story, because these were part of the order Zara decided to duplicate: and which I’m still waiting on a refund for…), they did, and I did. And I’m really glad I did, too, because I’ve now fully embraced pointed toes back into my life, and I’ve already worn these a few times, even although I’ve only had them for a couple of weeks: the tan and black combination is definitely one of my favourites!

Anyway, as I write this, my internet connection is constantly dropping out for minutes at a time, so I’m going to keep the words to a minimum and just hope it stays up for long enough for me to finish the post at all.

Just four more pairs to go!

  • Lovely shoes! I didn’t buy them after all (my size was sold out anyway) but got a mustard-coloured pair instead πŸ™‚

    I love your hair too, you made the extreme beehive a little bit more wearable πŸ™‚

    • Well, technically five, because my replacement Lady Dragons are currently en route, but as it stands, just four! (And I’m probably going to cheat and not include the Lady D’s!)

  • I liked the whole outfit as usual, and the shoes too; as I thought I started liking pointed toes again, I even considered trying a pair on today… (sales here!)
    Very elegant shoes and outfit! Loved the scarf too!
    I hope you get your Zara refund, I didn’t get mine. Bad service!

    • Oh, I meant to say this last time you mentioned your Zara issue, but totally forgot – did you try contacting your credit card? Sometimes you can get them to do a chargeback if the goods are faulty/not fit for their purpose etc: it’s not something I know a huge amount about, but might be worth giving them a call?

  • Amazing shirt, and loved the scarf. Really nice outfit, I love the classic colors combination.
    And 4 pairs! Congratulations! I think you don’t even have to cheat. You can easily save your Lady Dragons too.

  • i don’t like the colours combination,nothing is happening, just tan and black boring, boring, boring….

  • hi amber!

    i went down to zara a couple of weeks ago and tried those shoes on (yes, i went directly after seeing your post on them)

    they were veryyyy uncomfortable. in fact, all zara shoes seem to be very poorly made with regards to insole comfort and all.

    dont you find them uncomfy?

  • I saw a similar pair of shoes recently but I can’t remember where… and thought to myself I must try them on. I won’t be able to style them as well as you though.
