All That Glitters

I apologise for the gap in posts.  As I briefly mentioned in my no heel heels post I have been on holiday.  This is my first holiday for seven years so it was much needed!

If you’ve read my blog emrothwell.wordpress.com you may know that I have a nut allergy so taking a flight is always stressful in case I get trapped in a tube full of peanut fumes.  After considering the options I contacted a few cruise operators and they confirmed that they were able to cater for a nut allergy.

The cruise that we went on had two formal nights and I knew straight away that there was one pair of shoes that were coming with me.  My red Benjamin Adams made the cut because they are just beautiful.

These were probably my most expensive shoes but the amount that I adore them means that they were worth every penny.

I have tried to capture the sparkle and the whites, reds and blues that twinkle off of them when you wear them.

They have a concealed platform so they make me quite a bit taller than my original size but they are very comfortable.

I wore them on my holiday with a long lace dress – https://www.amazon.co.uk/Miusol-Womens-Vintage-Floral-Square/dp/B00SFJ73B2/ref=sr_1_21?ie=UTF8&qid=1464633608&sr=8-21&keywords=miusol
By the way, this dress is a bargain!  I was dubious given the price but it is beautifully made, really heavy material and looks lovely on.  It’s a long dress on me and skims the floor in bare feet so a good pair of heels is necessary for me unless I want to dust the floors.  The sparkly shoes just peeking out from the bottom of the dress are a nice touch.

The night that I wore these the sea was a bit rough but I had no problem trotting around the boat.  No trips, slips or falling over which is always good when you’re trying to look glam!

If you’re looking to try a pair of Benjamin Adams then have a search on TK Maxx, they have the brand from time to time.  I purchased mine from a small boutique – they were in the window and it was that moment when you stop and admire them and walk off but keep looking back down the street and have to go back and get them because you know you’ll regret it if you don’t!

What are your ‘must have’ shoes?  Are there any shoes that you still think about because you didn’t buy them?
