I love shoes, I have so many pairs. Honestly I have more shoes than I know what to do with, that, however does not stop me wanting more. I have found that over more recent years I wear flat shoes or boots. Gone are the days when I would go on a shopping trip wearing stiletto boots, oh how I loved those boots.
Now however I save my heeled shoes for evenings out with my Hubby or with friends. I might not been out every weekend like I once was, but it doesn’t stop me planning out my outfit when it comes to going out. I so often find I over dress for a meal out with the girls, well that or they just don’t make much effort…. haha!
Occasion shoes from Lace and Favour
Lace and Favour are one of my favourite online bridal boutiques, they have all the accessories you could possibly need for your wedding day, including a lovely collection of bridesmaid dresses. They got in touch recently to see if I would like a pair of their occasion shoes, why would I say no to this?
As my regular readers know, I am very indecisive, I probably spent 3 hours over a couple of nights looking at all of the beautiful shoes. I knew quite quickly I loved the Perfect Bridal Company Esme, velvet and t-bar shoes. Of course it wasn’t quite so simple as they come in a collection of different colours, 8 different options to choose from. Velvet or suede, one colour or two, glittery heal or not. For someone like me it wasn’t easy to choose between them all.
Beautiful occasion shoes
I opted in the end of the berry velvet and gold glitter t-bar shoes, something a bit different. The gold glittery heal and the berry velvet of the toe and base, such a lovely contrast. The t-bar and pattern is made of of a non glittery plain gold leather. The soul is a cushioned leather, as soon as you pop your feet into them, you can feel that they are well cushioned.
I have not worn them out of the house yet, however they have been used in the house. I like to bed in all of my new shoes at home before taking them out, these are very comfy, I think they will be great for a whole day. Although they have a heel hight of 8.2cm they are easy to walk in.
One thing about Lace and Favour that I love is the way your items arrive packed to you. Ivory tissue paper is wrapped around box, with their own sticker and always a small note, which I love. It’s the little touches that really make a company stand out for me and the whole shopping experience with Lace and Favour really is wonderful. My Perfect Bridal Company shoes, arrived in a box, a beautiful boxed covered in pretty flowers, it’s a box I would happily keep to store other items in. I’m a packaging lover, which might seem odd to some but to me it makes all the difference.
As soon as I spotted these shoes, I know they would be a bit different. Not only would they make for lovely bridal or bridesmaid shoes, I knew I would be able to wear them to a ball or attending as wedding as a guest. I also think I would be happy to wear them with a trouser suit or possibly even a pair of jeans, heading out for dinner. My 5 year old daughter said ‘Oh Mummy they are so gorgeous’ she wasn’t wrong!
What do you think to my choice of shoes? Would you wear them?
