I always get very excited whenever I get a package delivered. Though my bank account states different, it still feels like receiving a gift! Yay for online shopping! I was looking for cute sandals with a chunky heel to go with my new white dress. I didn’t find any in the shops I went to on Monday after buying the dress, so I did some browsing online, and found these cuties at www.yoox.com.
Though the heel is a tad bit higher than what I was looking for (they are 10.5 cm / 4.1 inches), I still decided to order them; I do not have problems with walking in high heels, especially not when they are sturdy like these. That they make me almost 2 meters long (198.5 to be exact / 6’5ft) I don’t mind; I proudly stand out! 🙂
Ordering a EU41 is always tricky, as my shoe size usually varies between EU41/EU42 (US 10.5/US 11.5 or UK8.5/UK9.5), so quite often this size has to go back, but sometimes I get lucky, like now. I have quite narrow feet, so especially sandals or peep toes often work in EU41.
I love the two color detail on the ankle strap. They were advertised as grey and black, but I find it more beige and black. They have a bit of a seventies feel to it, and I am thinking they will go perfectly with a pair of flared jeans for autumn, provided I can find a pair that is long enough, and by that, I mean really long enough. For now I will just wear them (mainly) with my cute white dress, and start exploring my wardrobe for other awesome ideas!
