Fairytale Shoes Fit For a Modern Day Princess

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.

Big and Beautiful

It’s been a little while since my last post featuring jewellery from Majique London but now my weekly posts have returned yaaaaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyy!  This week I am featuring 2 large bracelets that are totally different from each other and beautifully unique.  The first is this elasticated, worn silver bracelet that is very versatile.


It can be worn either casually or with a gorgeous going out dress such as these from JD Williams for a sophisticated and feminine look.  Make sure that the sleeve length is either short or at the most three quarter length.  Here I have found dresses that suit slim and fuller figure body types.

The bracelet is easy to slide on and off varying sized wrists and I absolutely love the way it looks with jeans and a casual top too.

The second is this elasticated, green crystal and worn gold bracelet that is great for adding that little bit of colour to an outfit or matched with something colourful.

The combination of the green and gold from the bracelet and green in the above dress would work incredibly well together.

I loved the way the bracelet would look with the gold dress whilst adding a touch of colour.

The gold thread and the combination of the pink in this dress go well with the gold and green from the bracelet.  They would make a great eye catching contrast for those that dare to be a bit different and stand out.

What did you think about my style choices?  I hope you liked them.  Please do pop me a like on the post and don’t forget to visit next week for an exciting new post that will also include a gorgeous prize to be won by one of my lucky readers.
