Shall we take a moment to bask in the beauty of these heels? The first time I saw them I fell a little in love, and each subsequent time after that during my weekly, ok ok, daily scrolls through Topshop’s website. I wasn’t sure if I could justify buying them though, so I just kept waiting and looking and coveting. Pining may actually be a more apt word. So, you get the general jist. I love them.
When a beautiful invitation was popped into my hands for a forthcoming hen-do of one of my beautiful friends, imagine my delight when the style code was Club Tropicale. Are these beauties not the very epitome of a bright and vibrant tropical soiree? That’s what I thought, so I merrily popped them into my basket – feeling proud of myself and a little bit smug knowing I now had a semi valid reason to buy them.
Now the down side: they’re pretty uncomfortable but I told myself all the most beautiful shoes in the world are. I’m afraid I’m looking in your direction Christian Louboutin.
I tried to wear them in a little beforehand (by this I mean wearing them in the kitchen whilst making a cup of tea) and bought some party feet soles in a last ditch attempt to save my little feet before the night began. I wore a pretty simple smock dress (isn’t the colour lovely, though?!) so I really wanted to jazz up my accessories, adding this rather novelty bag to my outfit too.
As expected, after many an hour spent dancing (dancing is a strong word, I can’t dance, I sway), I couldn’t feel my feet and was starting to experience sore feet anger – is that a thing? But, saying all this, I will wear them again and again and they will take pride of place on my heels shelf. I really couldn’t recommend these highly enough, the detail and embroidery really is stunning and certainly something a little different to pop on your feet for a special occasion.
