I’ve been craving for a pair of slippers for a while now, and despite seeing so many gorgeous embroidered velvet versions online, I wasn’t ready to part a small fortune for a pair I couldn’t try on. That’s why when I saw the heeled version, “Olive“, on Shoesales.com.au, I applauded the ingenious readaption of the highly covetable gentleman’s shoe into something more feminine but still highly practical. Although it is not embellished in any way, I am deeply attracted to the symmetry and contour of the shoe, plus it beckons for many DIY ideas! Well at least some vintage shoe clips have found their match! To say it was love at first sight would be an understatement.
Since “Olive” is a fine union of ladylike elegance and polished manly refinement, I decided to channel this fusion into my outfit as well. Teaming Christopher Kane lace, in conspicuous neon, and a tailored Alexander Wang tuxedo jacket dress, feminine jewellery and a manly briefcase (I bought it for hubby years ago, but he never use it), deemed an appropriate representation of my inner style philosophy. I call it ‘tomboy chic‘.
Since Shoesales.com.au has always been a generous supporter of Cecylia.com, they are once again giving away a pair of heels, this time, the black suede “Olive” pumps! If you fancy a pair, here’s how to score them:
