It was literally love at first sight when I clapped eyes on this pair of chunky wedged platforms
. I bought these on a whim after reading one of Michelle’s
blog post. I clicked through to her link, intended only to have a quick browse but with a few special occasions at the forefront of my mind, I made the quickest purchase for these shoes to wear for a wedding! Perhaps I got a little over-excited, I’m not usually so impulsive but I literally saw them, added to basket and checked out in less than five minutes. It was love at first sight! I just hope they don’t give me blisters! I expected them to be really expensive but they were only £29.99. I’ve bought shoes like this from Miss Selfridge
for double the price. When it comes to buying shoes, I never think of ZARA footwear
and now I want to buy every single pair! My local store is an hour away and even so, they don’t stock a huge range of shoes. I’ve just had another look on the website but had to click away due to temptation! Now all I have to do is find an outfit to wear them with!
When it comes to parties or occasions, I tend to opt for chunky platforms. I wouldn’t usually go for nude colour but I didn’t fancy them in the black. The nude ones are perfect as I bought them to wear at a wedding. So, what would you normally wear nude coloured shoes with? I don’t really know but I’m wearing a maxi, so the not-so-elegant chunkiness will be almost completely hidden. I wouldn’t wear these shoes if my legs weren’t covered by a maxi or trousers because nude shoes don’t go with thick tights (I’m not ready to reveal my pale legs yet!), and revealing the ankle strap will make me look shorter too. It does seem rather silly to buy such pretty shoes and making a fuss about how dreamy they are and then not having them on display, so to speak! They will be unseen under my floaty maxi dress but I do like they makes me slightly taller. It’s a girl thing, you ladies will get where I’m coming from, right?!
