Since I obviously had my rude day today – First I told my English colleagues in a meeting that Europeans are not interested in a currency called Pound Sterling, in fact they hardly know it exists (Ouch, that didn’t make me any friends); then I shouted in frustration on the tennis court (which made my partner just love me) – I sought consolation in the net-a-porter website which wooed me with their new blushed toned shoe selection. (But only after apologizing to everyone I could find, throwing myself on the floor and asking for forgiveness… Really? Nah... But let me just say I love everything English, including the currency!
Anyway, back to shoes… I first saw this idea of a leg lengthening, quasi non-visible device years ago in what I think was L’Wren Scott’s first collection* and immediately loved it. Last year I happily wore a pair of golden heels, which I thought worked pretty well, too... but am very tempted to go even nuder this summer.
Gold, beige and nude – good colours for shoes?
*I'm sure she wasn't the first one who came up with this idea, but as a stylist she nicely explained the concept of invisibly lengthening the leg. (She also had something to say about twisted, diagonal seems and how they make the legs look slimmer).
