This week’s Tuesday Shoesday blog post is all about you. Today I’m featuring all the photos and stories about the lovely shoes that my fabulous readers have sent in after seeing my last article on YOUR favourite shoes. Do you have some favourite footwear that you’d like to share on the blog? I’d love to have more of your contributions so please get in touch with a photo of your shoes, whether they are scruffy trainers or glitzy heels, if they are your favourites I want to see them! Email me a snap and a sentence about why you like them to email@example.com. So without further ado, here is this month’s contributions and the reasons why you love your shoes so much!
Lisa has just started blogging and she has shared this story of her silver shoes above; “I bought these bashed up beauties in Newcastle just hours after running my first half marathon. I remember hobbling awkwardly into the shop with my medal still proudly around my neck en-route to the train station. On reflection they were possibly the most inappropriate of shoes to be pushing my poor battered feet into, but it felt like such an incredible treat having lived in my trainers for the weeks leading up to that challenge. With their slight platform I always feel tall and confident in these Carvelas. They quickly became my go-to shoes for any night out that might involve a spot of dancing. The double straps make me feel secure enough to attempt the most energetic of dance moves and they are the only shoes I can dance in all night, without the need for donning a pair of rather sensible flat pumps for the journey home.”
Lisa also sent me a second photo of her wedding shoes above; “In the months leading up to my wedding, I worked an evening job to save up for my dream pair of shoes for the big day. However, once the dancing started, even my sparkly new pair of Jimmy Choos were sidelined to make way for my trusty Carvelas. Whilst the JC’s made me feel extremely elegant walking down the aisle, there was only ever going to be one pair of shoes I turned to for that matrimonial boogie.”
Melbourne-based blogger Karine from Tropical Colours blog spotted my last Tuesday Shoesday blog post and sent me a photo of her skyscraper platform heels (above) straight away. The photo looks like it’s stretched but they genuinely are that high! She says; “I absolutely love shoes and I just have so many! This one however, stands out so much from the others mainly because of how high it is! I wore these babies for my high school graduation and as much as I love them, they were by far the worst decision ever. The height is just so painful! I know I’m going back and forth from loving to hating it! It’s probably the best pair of heels I’ve ever bought and the ones people always gasp at and wish they had!”
Jess from inspirational blog Feeling Stylish sent me a few photos because she couldn’t narrow down her favourite shoes to just one pair – and you can see why from her ‘shoe wall’ collection! Jess tells me; “The Aztec wedge boots above are by Jeffrey Campbell, without a doubt my most favourite shoe brand ever and the green wedges are Jeffrey Campbell Damsels. I’ve never worn these out, they’re just too high for me, but they’re one of my favourite pairs of shoes because they’re a work of art! Finally, I’ve attached a picture of my favourite sandals (below). They’ve got me through miles and miles of walking and have travelled with me to all sorts of countries from Venice (where to picture was taken) to Turkey, to Sweden and so on! My blog is www.feelingstylish.co.uk. Plenty of shoes there!”
Fabulous lifestyle blogger and fellow Posh Fashion Award winner Sophie from La Vie Sophie sent me a photo of her favourite Jimmy Choos that have been going strong for years; “My favourite shoes are my Jimmy Choo Syra’s in black kid leather. I’ve had these slingbacks for nearly 10 years now and they’ve lasted like a dream. They’re beautiful, practical and comfortable, things you rarely get combined in a shoe. The pointed toe may not be for everyone, but in the time I’ve had them, pointed toes have come in and out of fashion like crazy! I have some great memories of wearing these shoes for some really special occasions and they’ll always be my favourite pair of shoes.”
