So I’ve been after a pair of black wedges for BLOODY AGES … and I’ve searched and searched and I could not find THE perfect shoes.
I found a couple that came close, Topshop had a mega chunky black wedge which I bought but quickly returned when my colleagues informed me that the shoes were most definitely not suitable for day wear. DARN it. KG had a couple of wedges available, as did Zara and New Look. But I could not find THE pair that matched my fine tuned mental criteria …. they had to be black suede and no faux materials, a good 4/5 inches, but with a wedged toe for comfort, shoe boots, and none of that rubber wedge heel… BLEUGH!
Finally I found the dream pair: Dune KOOL D Black Shoe Wedges. Hallelujah!
Not only did these shoes tick every box on my list … they were in the sale too. As if it was fate. £77 from Dune, super comfy, super hot, and look good with all my favourite new outfits. and they came just in time fora big week of parties :)
Dune, Kool D Lace Up Wedge, £77
I’ve mixed them with a couple of outfits so far, and I must say, I LOVE THEM.
Outfit A: Black Leather high waisted shorts from H&M (£14.99), Zara silk top with Gold sparkly cotton back (£39.99), Miss Selfridge chiffon cardigan and black tights … I took the belt off the shorts and added my own black and gold accessorize belt which transformed the shorts.
Outfit B: This outfit was what I wore to the media week awards this week, and even got to debut on stage when we won an award for my client :), frustratingly I don’t have a picture of me in it but am hoping Media Week will post pictures of us collecting our award on stage (i’ll post it when I find it). It was a French connection Gold / Black body con dress (£110) which I wore with my gorgeous mega heels and black tights (seeing as it’s clearly winter now), teamed with my Mulberry of course.
Outfit C: Saturday night I attended the Aussie-versary party in Century Club Soho with my friend and fellow blogger Kat. We had champagne and canapes to die for and they were all served by naked aussie men .. of course. We had our hair and make up done by the pro’s on arrival and gorgeous manicures by some top NY beauticians (I went for barbie pink), I’ve posted some pics below. Outfit wise, I wore an electric blue dress which I bought from a tiny store in Covent garden called FanPlace, which you can also buy at Neverfullydressed.com (although it’s more expensive online)!
A couple of pictures taken from the night (courtesy of jemimaandted) – excuse the pose & sticker on head, there was a lot of Champagne going round ;)
So all in all, the shoes have gone down a storm, and I have well and truly got my moneys worth. The biggest bonus is they are perfect for the day to night transition … and suits all the AW must haves!
