All That Glitters


Holla! I’m finally back after a pretty hectic August, and what better way to reintroduce myself than with these bad boys. I noticed them on the Schuh website whilst browsing and fell in love with them a little bit so when I was in town yesterday I went to find them in my local store.

I’ve been in a bit of a ‘shoe rut’ lately, I always tend to wear the same pair of black heels when I’m going out – they’re comfy, go with everything and are easy to walk in. These shoes are none of those things haha. They are ridiculously high, but despite this I can actually walk in them (this may not be quite so true once tequila is involved!). My favourite going-out dresses are all black so a pair of bright shoes will help to make my outfits a bit more interesting. At the moment they’re still quite uncomfortable but I’ve been wearing them in around the house so they don’t mangle my feet too much the first time I wear them out. Wearing 6 inch heels to do the dishes is not something I do every day!

I’m like a magpie – I’m instantly attracted to anything shiny and glittery – so these shoes are right up my alley. I think they’re on a fine line between tacky and amazing. Do you like statement shoes or do you prefer to keep them plain and let your clothes stand out instead?

P.S. if you’re ordering some shoes from the Schuh website soon, enter ‘GIMME15’ at the checkout for an extra 15% all Schuch branded sale shoes. Excellent!

P.P.S. I just made a formspring account, so head over here if you want to ask me something!

    I love them! I'm normally a basics lover, really, I have a nice collection of shoes but they're all quite boring (well, I don't think so, they're great to combine with everything) but these days I'm quite into glitter shoes, yours are perfect, probably convinced me to get rid of the last doubts to find similar ones!
