Day 1041 - Shoesday Tuesday
Shoes: Pink 'Tian Tian' panda heels Irregular Choice
First of all, I can't believe I haven't shown you these yet! I know I posted them on Pink Haired Princess, but I actually had to check the Shoesday Tuesday archives to ensure I wasn't posting twice!
Anyway, here they are and that colour photographs even more beautifully than it looks in real life (if that's possible). These are without a doubt my favourite of the panda heels and I tried many! As you'll see in the shots below, they have a really unusual finish. They are dimpled, kinda snakeskin or at least some sort of reptile looking material, but there's this larger print over the top, which is only apparent at certain angles. I think you can see it in all the foot shots, but the first product shot you can't and the second, it's really obvious. There's also a sort of oil slick style sheen, which you can't see here, but it's noticeable in my original post that I linked to above. I can see me wearing these loads if I ever get back to having a life (!) Other than that, I'm really struggling with modelling/shooting these photos nowadays. It used to be second nature, but I'm just not strong enough to contort my body the way I used to and stand for any period, so find myself having to sit, which doesn't always show the shoes off best. It's frustrating, because it's something I used to find so easy and I was hoping with practise I'd get better, but my body just isn't handling it very well. I've been trying to shoot in batches (I figure if I'm going to tire myself, I may as well do it all at once), but my photos definitely aren't as good as they were a couple of years ago and I have more misses than hits when I look through them. I don't even know if it's something you've noticed or just me being fussy, but like I say, it's frustrating for me when I used to post daily outfits and now I'm struggling with a couple of foot shots! Hey ho, I'm sticking at it and trying, so hopefully one day it'll become easier. What do we think of these panda heels?
Fit: 3 1/2" heel. I took a whole size larger and they fit well.
Comfort: No issues with these.
