Shoes, glorious shoes...

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..."


ASOS; £65.00
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.  

Missguided.co.uk; £32.99
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!

  3. Yeh the KG Genero shoes rock. But not at that hefty price tag.. Just gotta wait for the sale. Mind you, the shopping event was a nice touch. i didn't walk out with a new pair of shoes but canapes, champagne and goodies was just as inviting...
