new shoes!

navy bows b

For someone who has, well, quite a lot of shoes – not loads of shoes, but definitely no shoe shortage – I have needed – yes, needed – you understand, I know – a pair of navy shoes for a long time. Black shoes with dark blue... yeah, ok, not so bad, and yeah, red works, true, but not in this case, of course, and sometimes navy is just perfect.

And so, last week, I got some. I love ankle straps, I love platforms, and I do love a peeptoe... I'm not anti a bow or two here and there... but I usually like a nice fat, chunky heel. A high heel, but a chunky one. However, sometimes I like a nice skinny one, too... and yes, these are very, very high. Even for me. And yes, of course I can walk in them – just don't expect any long distance hiking!

I have an even more gorgeous pair from X-Entrix on Bridge Rd. Patent navy with white polka dots and white trim - with white triangular heel. Awesome - and so comfy too

Gorgeous with the brick red tights! Today I wore similar red shoes (though not a peep-toe, it's winter and freezing here), it's nice to play with colour : )

absolutely gorgeous shoes - i'm going to go research the designer now.

OH I want! I threw out a fabulous pair of black suede ankle straps and have regretted it so many times :(

nonsequitania said...

Lovely colour combination- the buttons tie (button) it all together perfectly, and suede would never do that excruciating peep toe toe pinch.

What's the name of the tights shade? I've been looking for a dark red like that but mine from We Love Colors are a bit vermilion...

perfect you !

Gina said...

Navy is such a flattering color on brunettes. You make it so feminine and playful.
Are the shoes comfy at all, or pure beauty and pain?

xoxo,
Gina
