Day 1017 - Shoesday Tuesday

Wearing Moschino gummy bear shoes
Shoes: Moschino gummy bear sandals

Ok, so last week I asked which shoes you'd like to see next and the runaway winner was "gummy bears"! So here they are.
To be honest I was a bit late to the party with these. I'd glanced at them when they first came out, thought "cute" and moved onto something else. Then months later I found myself unable to stop thinking about them. They come in plain red satin too, which I adored. They had that old-Hollywood/pin-up feel to them but y'know, gummy bears! I mean who would put jelly sweets on shoes? Actually Charlotte Olympia had a fabulous pair of sandals with gold 'gummy bears' on the t-bar and perspex bear clutches, but it IS an unusual print isn't it? I don't own anything remotely similar and the "acid green" yellowish/green shade is never a colour I gravitate towards, so I knew they'd be unique in my collection. FYI, they are much brighter than they look here.  So I decided to buy the gummy version when I had a discount code and they were already in the sale. Actually I lie, I totally had the red in my basket too, until the last second when I decided that was perhaps a little too extravagant, even with the discount.  I won't talk too much about the buying process, because I'm planning a post on Pink Haired Princess with further information on that and obviously oodles more photos!  I will say, I opted for somewhere that had half sizes as I was unsure which size to get.  My Moschino Cheap & Chic heart peep toes fit fine and are actually on the generous side, but I had these sandals with a fork on them (yeah, they were totally cool), which were so ridiculously narrow, I couldn't even get my foot in.  I decided to go for the 38.5 (a half size bigger) and they're ok.  I probably could've even gone for the 39.  Luckily because they are quite open and the strap is adjustable, there's some leeway there, but I'd recommend at least a half size larger, especially if you're between sizes.  The gathered satin was much stiffer (and larger) than I expected and can be played around with a little, depending if you want a straight 'tuft' upwards or a flatter, scrunched 'rosette'.  What do you think, like these? I'd also like to know which shoes you want next as there's a tie for second place.  So the choices, without revealing the specific shoes, are bunnies, dolls, unicorns or dwarf.  Let me know below.        

Fit: 4 1/4" heel, adjustable buckle on strap.  Narrow in the toe and quite small. I'd suggest a half or full size larger.
Comfort:  I hope they'll be ok, not sure how strong that strap is.  Moschino gummy bear shoes in box Moschino gummy bear sandals Moschino gummy bear print detail
