Many of my most recent fashion posts have featured boots.  Of course that is due to the awful weather we have been having and my need to stay dry and keep my toes feeling toasty but today I will break with recent tradition and feature some elegant shoes that are perfect for going out.  Now the weather has been a little kinder to us recently and some of us have been donning our going out clothes finished with some dazzling shoes and a gorgeous handbag.  Shoes can make or break an outfit and it is important to pair the correct shoes with our clothing choices.  My aim is always to combine style and sophistication when creating an outfit and it’s amazing how the right jeans for example can be spiced up with some ‘wow look at me shoes’ to make one look simply fabulous .  I always go for sleek, feminine styles personally and this is reflected in my outfit and shoe choices.

I have always loved the Wizard of Oz, why might you ask would I even consider mentioning this in a post about shoes, have I really lost the plot?  Well of course all the best people have (slight rewording from Alice in Wonderland there, my goodness lots of fairy tale story references today what’s happened).  Anyway back to the shoes.  You will all recall Dorothy’s ruby slippers from the book / movie and that was exactly what I thought of when I saw these stunning women’s shoes on the JD Williams site.

Don’t they look magical!!!

Now I must say when I first saw these I was overly excited, I mean who wouldn’t be, they look gorgeous and really glamorous.  These court shoes work with a large range of dresses, trousers and jeans to add a wonderful sparkle.  Not ones to lend to friends as you many never get them back these sure are a wardrobe stable and are guaranteed to never go out of fashion and can make any outfit look eye catching.  Totally drool worthy and the heels are the perfect height and a bargain at £30.

Now when you are on a site looking at shoes it’s not easy to stop at the one pair.  I’m not sure if it is because I saw Into the Woods recently with my girls but these precious pewter peep toe shoes caught my eye.  I’m sure many a fairytale Princess would own shoes like this and so can we for just £18 (I really hope you were sitting down when you read that).  The price is shockingly reasonable so I would suggest if you love these as much as me get over to the site fast because they are bound to sell out quickly.  They look simply fabulous whether worn in the day or evening and glow with feminine sophistication.  Again the heel is a good size so you are less likely to loose your shoe if you find Prince Charming isn’t so …. well charming and you need to make a sneaky quick exit.  These feel really soft to the touch which is perfect for me being a very tactile person.

Both styles of shoe can be worn with a range of clothing including blue skinny jeans, the gorgeous cold shoulder day dress pictured below, black slim leg jeans and also various types of evening wear such as the featured Carolina dress which is perfectly coloured to suit both pairs of shoes.  All the outfits featured below are from the JD Williams site and I do regret not having looked there sooner.  They have a great range of clothing and footwear and also a surprisingly good price range too so they have something to suit every pocket.

  1. These shoes look so pretty; love the sparkly ones. Am green with envy as I am unable to wear heals now due to my knees, just doesnt seem right wearing flats with a dress.

  2. These are gorgeous! I’m usually in flats nowadays! Only wear heels of I’m heading out. Sometimes when I think back to my late teens early twenties, how I ever even managed to walk in my heels they were that high! Lol! Xo
