Night Out Shoes

I was being very rock and roll on Saturday night and staying in drinking nothing stronger than a cup of tea.  I used my time to pick out some nice shoes which would be perfect for a good night out for next time I leave the house on a Saturday.

The first pair are cut out court shoes which are plain black and elegant from the front but reveal a nice metallic heel at the back.

They are £19.99 and available here – http://www.tkmaxx.com/heeled-shoes/black-leather-pointed-heels/invt/25401774
These could easily be worn to the office and then worn on a night out.  I have a pair of cut out court shoes (not these) and they look really nice on and are comfortable to wear.

My next pick reflect a bit of a shoe trend at the moment with the two part court shoe.

I like these because they are simple and elegant and have a nice metallic front to make them look more party wear than office wear.  These are available for £19.99.

Moving on we have another pair of cut out courts but I think the gems on the front and the material upper make them exclusively evening wear.  These would look gorgeous with smart black trousers or an evening gown.

These are a great price at £16.99.  I’m certain that it would be hard for others to guess that you have paid so little for such an elegant pair of shoes.

Prefer something similar in navy? http://www.tkmaxx.com/heeled-shoes/navy-sateen-embellished-courts/invt/25068545
Maybe fuchsia? http://www.tkmaxx.com/heeled-shoes/fuchsia-satin-embellished-courts/invt/25068855

My next pick are a funny one.  I think they would be good for a night out but I also think that they would be equally at home in the office.  I couldn’t pass them without marking them but I don’t know why and sometimes you fall in love with a pair of shoes ‘just because’.  I think for me I like the angular sole leading up to the heel.  Most shoes gently slope up but these have a tight angle.

They are £16.99 and come in a faux snakeskin finish.

I love the next pair because they look so normal and ‘dull’ from the front but the heel hides a surprise.  It’s a beautiful metallic heel but, more than that, look at the way it’s attached to the shoe.

These are £19.99 and I think would become a talking point at a party.  Some people wouldn’t notice but you’d know and any shoe lovers out there would spot them straight away.  It’s a good way of finding someone you have something in common with at a party – wear a great pair of shoes and you’ll find your soul mate.

My final pair are the only ones, I notice, which aren’t black!  I do not follow fashion to any extent.  I love to do my own thing and wear things that I like and that suit me.  Fashions come and go but some shoes will last for years, if you treat them right, so buy them because you like them, not because they’re in fashion.  All that said because I don’t know whether fringe shoes are ‘in’ at the moment.  I like the style and I like the colour so they join my list.  I think you’re going to want to team these with a skirt or dress that doesn’t come below the knee so you don’t make your ankle/foot area look too busy.

These shoes are the most expensive at £39.99 but they are by Steve Madden who is a designer that I love.

Big Friday Pick

So, it’s been a busy week and today has been very wet with stormy skies and rumbles of thunder.  After a nice take-away I’m sat on the sofa just having a little look to see what shoes are about at the moment.

Let me share some of my favourites.

These are currently £24.90 on the Modatoi website.  A perfect shoe for summer with the sandal vibe but a bit more cover up and closed toes for those wet summer days we are likely to get in the UK!

The next pair are £20.90 on the Modatoi website.  They offer them in the blue that I have picked but also in black, white, red and beige.  I like the silver contrast heel.

My next pick are similar to the above but the contrast heel is a slightly different style.  These are again from Modatoi and £20.90.  They are also available in black and blue.
C5197-04

The next pick are a classic court shoe but with a nice twist.  I have picked them in grey but I’d be happy with them in any of the other colours (black, beige or blue).  They are on offer at the moment for just £16.60.  I think they’d make a lovely office shoe.

My final pick from Modatoi are just delicious.  I have paid hundreds for a pair that look in the region of these but these are just £18.40.  They are also available with a red base.

Next I moved onto TK Maxx and I start with a nice pair of summer clog sandals.  I love this style of shoe after buying a few pairs like this in Portugal.  They are comfortable and sturdy and you won’t have to worry about getting them re-heeled!  There are a few colour options but I have gone for pink as I think these would look lovely against a tan.  The RRP on these is £90 but they are on sale at £16.00.

You know I said that I liked the clog sandal style of shoe, well I’ve proved it by picking these as well.  They were just too lovely to scroll past.  Again they have an RRP of £90 but are being sold for £16.

The final pair of the night are by a shoe designer I adore.  I have few pairs of his shoes and they are gorgeous.  Steve Madden is a shoe genius and these £110 shoes are available for £32.  You’re going to need to have your feet in tip top condition to wear these as they won’t cover any rough skin so get your Ped Egg, or similar, out and get those tootsies smooth.

That’s it for tonight.  Now I just need a spare £170 to go and buy them all…

Do you like any of my picks or have you seen something lovely that I’ve missed?
