Day 984 - Shoesday Tuesday

Shoes: Pink glitter elevated 3 strap bow Vivienne Westwood Anglomania & Melissa 

Hello, how is this week treating you so far? I wanted these shoes for a long time and naturally I had to want the colour that was harder to find and usually more expensive than the others!
I eventually found them for a price that suited (I really have too many VW/Melissa to justify buying them at full price), a really great price actually and they had one size left (mine)! There was no option to size up and from experience I found the closed toe styles and certainly my other elevated 3 strap small fitting. However I've tried these on a few times and they don't actually feel as tight. Maybe after an hour or two, they'll start numbing the toes, as I've experienced in the past, but without the option of a bigger size, I had little choice. Actually I was pleasantly surprised by how comfortable they felt.  I love the soft pink shade and glitter finish and the bows are a cute touch (though it means I can't really cross my straps like I sometimes did on my old ones).  Although I bought these last year, I posted a pic to my Tumblr a couple of months ago and it seems these shoes are really popular on there!  In the past 48 hours, it's had another 500 likes/reblogs!  Do you think they are worthy of the adoration?

Fit: 4" heel and 3/4" concealed platform. Adjustable buckles on each strap. Snug fitting, but took regular size.
Comfort: Not sure yet, certainly haven't felt too tight but may when wearing for longer periods.  Wearing Vivienne Westwood Melissa pink glitter elevated 3 strap bow Vivienne Westwood Melissa pink glitter elevated 3 strap bow

  1. I haven't any VW Melissa but I have a pair of Mel heels and I'm not overly convinced by them. I can't quite put my finger on what it is about them but they don't quite feel right.

    1. I really want a pair of the Mel courts with the hearts, have resisted them for ages, but I keep seeing them on other people and they look so cute.
