Sparkly heels...

There are certain shoes that just demand attention, they don't whisper, they SHOUT and these Schuh beauties are such a pair. The lovely Fleur from Most Wanted at Voucher Codes asked if I wanted get involved in their latest campaign; Most Wanted Seasonal Staples which "aims to take a key season trend and enlist fashion experts to help road test the look.  Ultimately we hope this will help to unearth the best high street version of the look" with the look being those ubiquitous Miu Miu sparkly booties. I leapt at the chance, you all know how much I like anything sparkly


Unfortunately when they arrived they were far too small, I ordered a 7 (my usual size) and could barely fit my feet into the shoes. Luckily Fleur and Schuh were fantastic and managed to send out another pair in the next size up. 


 As you can see, these are very high shoes, so high infact that I haven't dared to wear them further than 100m from the house yet. From just walking around inside though, these shoes feel very solid courtesy of the chunky heel. I  felt like a baby giraffe, wobbling around, trying to get my bearings  because they are just so high...


Unless you are used to wearing high high heels I would really advise against wearing these to anything you may need to walk to/from. However, I rarely wear heels, especially high ones so I am a complete novice!


Despite this though, I love them, the black suede means that they should be 'practical' but the sparkles make them irresistible. My inner magpie is crowing in triumph at the SHINY SEQUINS and I am wearing them around the house in the hope that I will (one day) be able to walk in heels!


I mean just LOOK! Apparently if you hairspray the glitter it stops it shedding so much (something I am yet to try) although it does lose some of the colour off the glitter. I ill definitely be doing this as I want my shoes to be glittery, not my carpet... I am so grateful for being able to be involved in something like this, I love sparkly shoes and I would recommend these shoes, just make sure you practice walking in them before you leave the house! If you fancy grabbing yourself this pair or another pair of Schuh beauties then head over to their discount page to bag yourself a bargain! 

Would you wear sparkly shoes? Can you walk in heels?

They're absolutely amazing! Such a shame they were a little small though. My friend bought a cheap~* pair of black heels from Primark, snapped up some PVA and a box of glitter on eBay and made her own, but they shed a LOT of glitter on the ol' dancefloor! xx

Ridiculously in love with these!

Caroline said...

Those shoes are gorgeous! I totally wouldn't be able to walk in them but at least they have a pretty sturdy looking heel and decent platform!

Ahhh- the glitter! But you are right, my oh MY those are high! My maximum is about 3 and a half, and that is not easy. I often see 'going out' shoes in Topshop and River Island and wonder how on earth people walk in them!

Oh jeez, even I'd learn to walk in heels for shoes like those, and that's saying something, as the girl who whinges about anything above dead flat.

SPARKLESES!

I think these would probably cause me an immense amount of pain but I'd be willing to walk through the pain for these beauties! Hell I'd be willing to walk over hot coals!
They are AMAZING and I look forward to seeing them in an outfit post soon

xx
