This January I am taking the mantra ‘New Year, New Shoes‘ (any excuse really right?) very seriously and I find nothing puts a spring in my step quite like a new addition to my shoe family (collection just seems so impersonal). When it comes to shoes I find myself drawn more towards statement pieces – I like my shoes to be works of art in their own right and this pair from Alexander McQueen really does not let me down in that respect.
Is there really anything more decadently delightful than a pair of needlepoint/tapestry slippers? These leather lined slippers (made in Italy) have an elegant touch to them with the grand needlepoint flower pattern which is apt both casually and formally making them a very versatile pair of shoes which would look just at home with turned up denim as with a dinner suit. These shoes speak for themselves, they can dress up any ensemble and give a look that little bit of an edge. Je suis dans l’amour.
…and here’s to hopefully many more new shoes in 2013!
