I recently received a meme from one of my fellow (and favourite) bloggers, the lovely Helena Halme asking to see my 7 favourite pair of shoes. So here they are without further ado and accompanied by the whitest legs alive:
Let’s start with the oldest first: I bought these green satin Bertie sandals in Copenhagen around 7 years ago. I love the colour, the retro-look and they are actually super comfortable. I haven’t used them for a long time, but I think I’ll have a green revival this summer.
Next up are these equally old Bruno Magli suede shoes with gold squares on the heels. I found them in a charity shop in Copenhagen many years ago, and they were as good as new. I don’t use them that often anymore but the look quite classy with a simple black dress.
I bought these black patent leather peep toes on sale at Russell & Bromley around three years ago. They are so well-made and comfortable = perfect for a long night out. I’ll never throw them away as they have huge sentimental value – I wore them when I got married in Las Vegas two years ago: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i4vAPzWHk7Q
You can’t really go wrong with a pair of Ferragamo flats/pumps. I love the understated elegance, so when I spotted this patent leather pair in a charity shop I had to buy them. I have another pair with a slightly higher heel plus croco-pattern.
I am a big fan of Jelly shoes and currently have three pairs: these red ones plus two transparent ones w. gold and silver glitter. They’re definitely not the world’s prettiest shoes (and you might end up with sweaty feet) but you can wear them for 100 days straight without even the smallest signs of blisters.
I’m not normally a fan of Aldo Shoes as I think a lot of their shoes are too high and have too many flimsy, blingy details. But when I saw a picture of these suede wedge sandals on a fashion blog last summer I had to run for the nearest Aldo store. I still love them and will probably wear them until they fall apart. They are so comfortable and I love the edgy look.
I love my Balenciaga sandals. I don’t usually spend to much money on shoes, as I prefer to spend the big amounts on handbags + I tend to abuse my shoes and would feel bad if they were too expensive. So I try to find the more expensive designer shoes on sale or in charity shops. I bought these in the brilliant outlet The Mall in Italy (read about my visit to The Mall here) where they only cost me 115 Euros. They are almost sculpture-like and super comfortable – I recently wore them at a big and very long wedding in Bangkok.
Oh….and if I were to mention an 8th pair it would definitely be these Jeffrey Campbell wedges, they’re my newest favourites.
I’m probably supposed to pass on this meme, but I have a work deadline I better get back to, so that must be some other time 🙂
