What better way to celebrate the second last working day of the week than with a new blog feature about, yep, you guessed it – shoes, exquisite shoes. I know, funny that, given we’re a shoe blog…
As you might imagine I see a lot of shoes here day in, day out, and personally as a bonafide shoe obsessive, I’m typically coveting several pairs at any given time (double digits at the moment in fact). It gets ridiculous.
I currently have over 100 pairs in my wardrobe. Not counting summer sandals, they’re up in the loft just now, of course. Not for long hopefully.
The point of the Lust List is to force us to choose that one special shoe and share it with you, our lovely readers. The one we can’t stop thinking about. The one we dream of every night until we buy it. The one we buy outfits to go with it, before it’s even arrived. Yes, we honestly do.
Choosing my first ever lust-have shoe was surprisingly easy. I’ve got a thing for shiny and colourful things so naturally the iridescent trend is right up my street. I’ve been dreaming of owning the schuh Truth or Dare iridescent mule since I first saw it months ago. It’s shimmery and pearlescent with pretty pastel tones, making it extra girly. The mid foot strap updates the classic mule and gives it a modern edge. Plus, I’m a sucker for a pointed toe – my favourite kind of blast from the past.
I can see myself wearing these out for cocktails in my favourite Carrie Bradshaw-esque skirt, like this floral beauty or to work with jeans when I feel like dressing up. Are you getting in on the mule trend and if so, how will you style Truth or Dare?
