I’ve wanted a pair of Vivienne Westwood Melissa heels since the two brands first collaborated. The utter childishness of them – like jelly sandals but with heels, glitter and a bubblegum scent – and the fact that they’re entirely inappropriate for the majority of my everyday life only fuelled my passion. I’ve resisted them for many years because £100+ is a lot to spend on glorified plastic shoes (no matter how pretty they are). But when they popped up on Sarenza, just as I was deciding how to use my Sarenza blogger code, I decided it was fate. Or maybe the Sarenza buyer just has excellent taste.
So into my basket they went, and this morning they showed up on my doorstep. Like a kid at Christmas, I cannot contain myself when new things arrive, so they went straight on my feet (after much sniffing and aaaahing) and I’ve been stealing glances at them all day long.
Trousers c/o Next, Vivienne Westwood for Melissa heels c/o Sarenza, Primark t-shirt, ASOS necklace, H&M ring, Topshop lipstick in Brighton Rock. The old fashioned phone is a car boot find and cost £3.
They are very special shoes and I can imagine wearing a pair for my wedding (maybe in blue?) but I adore the life they bring to this simple outfit. I don’t think I can bear to save them for best – such beauty deserves to be seen and admired!
What do you think – shoes to shout about or a bit too girly for your liking?
PS – It’s the last day of the Sarenza sale today – I picked up a pair of leather boots for £25 down from £80, so it’s definitely worth a look!
