Shoe challenge #89: Champagne
These satin peep toes were without a doubt the hardest shoes in my collection to save. Obviously because of the fabric, especially combined with the Belgian weather, but also because I had nothing in my wardrobe that matched the colour perfectly. I could have gone for a LBD, but I noticed the tiny hints of champagne in this dress (after I did my succesful trick of walking around putting the shoes next to the clothing). To be completely honest, I did not go to work in these. I had intended to, but right as I wanted to leave it started pouring again. Oh, only one more week until I can bask in the Turkish sunshine!
I love this dress, I do. I love the pattern, the poofy skirt and the quirky neckline, even if it makes the booby department look ginormous. Which isn't always good.
The shoes, well, let's just say they're not exactly the most comfortable ones. Not only did they cut my heel, they cut my toes as well. Not really the ones I would wear to a party, that's for sure. But hey, at least they're saved, I can think of occasions to wear them later! And now soon, the very last pair of shoes!!
