Shoe challenge #61: 50s rock chick
I love me some 50s dresses, but ever since I got myself this amazing petticoat, I'm even more in love with this particular silhouette! For a night out with friends on Friday, I went all out with sky high heels, my faux leather jacket from Zara and some red red lippy. The boyfriend hates it when I wear lipstick, so my Bourjois Sweet Kiss tubes don't get nearly enough use out of them! (I'm wearing Rouge sur Mesure in these photos, but I also own Fuchsia Cosmopolite and both colours are very vibrant and long-lasting) He still humoured me by taking these pictures though, so thank you sweetie!
As soon as I arrived in the pub one of my best friends referred to these as my "stripper shoes". And I can't exactly blame here, because they are very much on the verge of being tacky or slutty. But I adore them nonetheless. They don't pinch, they don't rub, and I don't really feel the height when walking in them, which makes these Asos slingbacks one of the most comfortable pairs I own, even if they don't look like it.
We're still enjoying some lovely sunny weather here in Belgium, but Friday was particularly windy and chilly, so I had no choice but thrown on a jacket with my dress. It's a bit shorter than my other Hell Bunny dress (because I had it shortened, as it was way too long on me originally), which is why you can see the petticoat sticking out a bit, which I rather liked. But mostly, it's the half-naked ladies on the dress that always strike everyone's attention.
I managed to save two more pairs this weekend, and am saving a pair today, so I'm guessing there will be back-to-back shoe challenge posts coming up these next few days. Hope you don't mind!
