Step up to Shoes-day

Apparently Marilyn Monroe said “Give a girl the right pair of shoes, and she can conquer the world”, and Cinderella certainly is proof (bear with me here) that shoes can change a girl’s life.

Melissa Vivienne Westwood shoesOne of the greatest shoe experiences I’ve had happened in the Melissa shop in East Gate. Known for their bubble gum scented shoes, made from 100% recyclable plastic by a socially and environmentally responsible company in Brazil, and the designers who contribute to collections, I absolutely had to try a pair on. I was thinking of getting a pair of the black Ballet II, but they unfortunately did not have it in my size. As I as debating whether or not to get the pink ones, my eyes alighted on a “SALE” sign. And there I found the last pair, in my size, of shoes I’ve been coveting through Pinterest for a very long time: Vivienne Westwood Anglomania Skyscraper Pearl Blush. I still had a budget to consider, and with all my bits crossed that it wouldn’t cost more than the ballet pumps do, I asked the assistant to check the price – and I was clearly destined to own them as they came in on budget.

While waiting for the transaction to be finalised, I saw the gorgeous Melissa Ultragirl + J. Maskrey with real Swarovski Crystals. How absolutely gorgeous (and completely out of my league) are these flats?

And on that note, I’ll leave you with a little shoe infographic inspired by one of pop culture’s best-known shoe-aholic. Happy Monday, shoe lovers!
