"You look like you're wearing stilts"

Wednesday, 30 March 2011


The title is a direct quote made by my boyfriend when he first set eyes on me wearing the above shoes.
These gorgeous shoes are what I purchased with my ASOS Groupon voucher earlier this month. Then I ended up getting back my pennies for this order after winning their competition. So at the end of the day I ended up paying £9.00 for a pair of £45 wedges! :)

As you can see these are super super high, I admit when I took them out of the box I said 'oh god' & did wonder if I was going to be able to walk in them at all. But once I slipped them on they felt very comfortable. My feet didnt feel like they were in a painful arch like they would with stilettos, thanks to the wedge style they are much kinder on your feet! I also love the fact they have the strap across the front. A lot of the time I find after a while your shoes start to stretch a  bit and become looser around your feet, therefore when you are walking along your feet tend to slip out of the shoe, because of this I have recently been drawn more towards the shoes that have the front strap.

I love the neutral shade of these shoes (listed as taupe on the asos website) It means they will go with a lot of things which is always a bonus. Ive got some bright teal shoes that I wore once to a wedding. They are in a shoebox under the bed, I have no idea when I will wear them again so they feel like a bit of a waste! I like shoes that you know you will get a lot of wear out of them and these are definately a pair I can see myself loving all spring and summer! I have to say though that I am now drawn back to the Fearne Cotton Mary Janes I blogged about ages ago... They are calling to me! hehe. Maybe one day I will get those..Goupon, please give us a voucher for Very :-)

Much Love
