Ah, shoes. The most beautiful way to cover your feet.
You are either a bag girl, or a shoe girl and I am most definitely a shoe girl. I love bags but find dragging everything out of one bag to move to another bag a massive chore. Plus, I always end up forgetting to move my favourite red lipstick from one bag or leave my glasses case in another bag. Before you know it, I’ve lost everything I need, and I have to be out of the house in 5 minutes – panic!
Shoes, however, can be very easily swapped daily, twice daily, even three times a day as quickly as anything. My dream house includes a room dedicated to many pairs of shoes, all lovingly displayed side by side. Think Carrie’s walk in wardrobe. That. I want that.
For my own wedding, I knew I wanted the most beautiful pair of shoes. My dress was 50’s style, so they would be on display the whole day. I fell in love for the second time when I saw a pair of platforms by the brilliant Benjamin Adams.
Stunning ivory satin, 4.5 inch peep toe heels with a slight front platform and gorgeous crystal studded flower. A show stopping shoe, they were just what I had been looking for.
If you are looking for your own show stopping shoe, it is definitely worth having a look at the range on offer by Benjamin Adams. From the current collection, I just love Saskia. The delicate pattern of the Austrian crystal will add a beautiful sparkle under any wedding dress.
The backs of Holford make me go “Wow!”
And, I just love the elegant shape of the side of the Valentina heels. Beautiful.
After big day, as they are made from duchesse silk, why not dye the shoes a different colour, just like these gorgeous hot pink Dita heels? Ooh, I’m now very tempted to dye mine, I can just see them in a stunning emerald green…
I recieved so many compliments about my shoes on the day and I still do whenever I wear them. My dream house with shoe closet definitely has a number of pairs of shoe by Benjamin Adams in there.
