Fashion Forward: Shoes

I got a fair few comments about the shoes I included in last week's Fashion Forward lol! I should say that I've never worn anything with heels like that....

This week I thought I'd keep with the footwear theme and show you some rather lovely shoes I bought just before Christmas.



(Why yes, that does say Size 8. I have Big Feet. I even have one pair of shoes in Size 9. And?!)

Oh, that burgundy suede! Oh, those ribbon laces! Oh, those heels - hang on, you can't see the heels in this pic... Here you are:



I am *loving* these shoes :-) Now I just have to find an occasion to wear them....!

And a bit less snow to walk in them on [does that make sense??!!].....but they are gorgeous.

Jeans! Wear them with your jeans - they'd look amazing!!! Only as Scrappyjacky says, hold off until the ice has gone x

I'm a 9 - 8 isn't so bad, my poor sisters are 11's!
They are far too cute :-) Still too high for me though!
Jeans yes .... snow no!

Those are gorgeous - the color the texture, the laces - just gorgeous! If that was a US size 8 they'd be a tad too small for me, but I think I'd hunt you down anyway.

8/9 is normal sized. they are very pretty, great colour :)

Really cute!

Karen said...

I think a lot of us wear size 8!! Love the shoes. I adore shoes, but after foot surgery, limit myself primarily to flats and low wedges. I sure do love these, though!

Sian said...

Gorgeous shoes! Because of my little feet I need ones like these I can tie on..so I buy them but can never find anywhere to wear them. I think I need to get out more!

Deb said...

LOVE these shoes!!! I wish I could still wear heels like that - they kill my feet now. :o\

mise said...

I like these such a lot, and indeed wear the same size as you and have the perfect coat to wear with them so I Can't See Why They're Not Mine.

They are FAB U LOUS!
I would wear them with everything! I bought some Barbie pink shoes a while ago and have worn them so much more than I expected. Black, white, navy, grey - you name it, I managed to wear them with it. I really think the purple would work too!

:O love them! I reckon you could wear them with your jeans. Who needs a special occasion?!

PS i'm a 7-8. Us girls need a substantial foot to help us walk in these heels!

I think you mainly need to wear them with lots of attitude! Otherwise they might have a bit of a Willy Wonka feel to them (the Gene Wilder version), but I have no doubt you can putt it off!

OMG!!! I absolutely love these. I do I really do! I'm going to go daydream about them now. The color...ooooohhhhh!!!!! I have no words ;)

Emily said...

Wowzah!

The Scrappy Tree said...

I love those shoes! And they would fit me! Perfect ;)

Lizzie said...

Sounds like a great excuse to arrange an evening out with some girlfriends!
Those are cooooool shoes. Do they do size 5? (little whimpering noises...)

Cathy (Tinniegirl) said...

Those are sensational shoes. I'm a size 11 so I'm thinking your feet aren't too big at all.

Love your new daily photo project too, by the way.

Courtney said...

Wow wow wow! Those are amazing shoes! They're the kind of shoe I'd be hesitant to wear outdoors because heaven forbid I get any dirt on them.

Mae said...

I'm kind of in love with those shoes. :)
