oh lovely new shoes. I’m well aware that this is pair number two in as many weeks, but I haven’t bought any new clothes yet, and it *is* the beginning of the new season. I’ve been wanting them since I saw them on the runway at J W Anderson’s SS12 show at London Fashion Week, as part of his collaboration with Aldo, so I’m afraid I succumbed at the weekend, when the sun was shining, and a pair of white pointy toed stilettos seemed just the ticket.
I have much love for them because I can’t normally wear a stiletto pump — my feet and ankles are too narrow so they fall off — hence why all my shoes have straps. These are pretty damn perfect — a pump with a strap. All win, my friends, all win. And they are going to look fab with a rolled hem, with jeans, with a neat pencil skirt, and with, well, everything, being just high enough to run for a bus, but not so high that I will cripple myself.
Aldo, under their Rise label, collaborated at London Fashion Week SS12 with three designers: JW Anderson, Preen and Mark Fast, and all the shoes from the collections are available now. I’ve got my eye on this Preen pair, and it’s a pretty sure thing that these blue JW Anderson stilettos will be coming home with me sooner or later.
