You heard it here first. I freaking hate this picture. Hence it being a small one. Seriously, I am considering never wearing this dress or those tights again. And I look like death, only ever so slightly warmed up. Don't go thinking I'm being a fishing-for-compliments dickhead - I truly hate it! It's OK though because it make me chuckle a bit. The face I'm pulling almost says "lordy this picture's gonna be shit isn't it?". Anyway, in the interest of honesty and proof of shoe wearing for my shoe wearing challenge, here it is!!
Now there have been times in the past where I've worn a pair of shoes then decided my outfit was shit and not photographed them until the next time they were worn. However, I just plain can't make my mind up about these shoes so they had to be photographed with this ensemble. They're by a fella called Enzo Angiolini (well, I choose to think he's a dude anyway) and I bought them from Solestruck, an American website. They're pair # 54 in my shoe wearing challenge. And I am not ashamed to say I only bought them to get free shipping on my Senso boots! Uh-huh! They had a 'spend $xx and get free shipping' dealio. I had another $40 to spend to get free shipping or else it was going to cost $30. They way I see that is that I only had to spend another $10 on shoes. When it comes to shoe maths, the more pairs the better for me, so I was sucked right in and picked up these for about $30 and a pair of flip flops (who doesn't need flip flops - I freaking love them come summer. Mind you, my feet leave little to be desired right now) for about $10 - BINGO! Free Shipping. Sort of.
So let's talk, in brief, about what I dis/like about them. I like:
The cheerful colour
The patent finish
The peep toe
The slight platform
The faux wood slightly two tone heel
I'm not convinced by the buckle.
I think they need another chance bare foot, come summer, with some nice bright nail polish. Time for a pedicure...
