I've always got shoes on my mind. The higher the better. This season I've been loving the chunky open toed sandals and the bright coloured and patterned wedges. I was supposed to be going to the Kurt Geiger shopping event tonight, hosted by Grazia with a university friend, but due to an unhealthy bank account I had to, sadly, say no. Instead I've been browsing the online shoe world and building a summer wishlist of 'rags to riches' priced shoes...
"Genero" by Kurt Geiger; £295
I've wanted these for some time now, but unfortunately that price tag is a bit too much for a first year university student, who's been paying a Macbook Pro off... They are extremely high and would make me feel like a giant (for once). These are great if you feel you can't quite pull off a colour block outfit. I also really love the print advert for these shoes:
"Women turn into birds of paradise at night..."
At a much more affordable price, comes the chunky open toe court shoe. The perspex heel gives that 'glass slipper' effect. Neutral tones help to tone down a bright outfit, or perhaps give a bit of chic to an average office look.
I haven't looked on this site for a while, and whilst browsing the other day I was surprised at how much it has come on, it's definitely worth a look! Anyway back to the shoes... These look like a 70s throwback, I can't quite explain it but the chunkier the heels get and the higher the platform goes I just think 'Saturday Night Fever'.
I've just realised, all the shoes I picked have been suede, so there's a trend there!
