I always seem to constantly find myself on the hunt for the perfect red shoe. It certainly is a bold statement that doesn’t easily just meld into any old outfit, so naturally I have become more and more particular about my needs in this area of my shoe collection. I have a couple pairs of red pumps but nothing ever was quite right.
I’m not sure what it is, but when I first started designing shoes I decided to take my need for a red pump, and push the statement shoe design over the top. Not in a “lets make it overly strappy and embellished” sort of way; just something very classic and then some. To be honest, I’m not sure where my inspiration came from for this- so many people say “The Wizard of Oz” but frankly, that movie is totally messed up and I in no way intend to look like a homeless girl wearing an old dead hags stolen footwear. I think where it really came from was a healthy mix of my favourite hockey team’s main colour, Santa Claus and a girl’s natural attraction to glitter. Whatever it may be, I know that I created something special just for myself.
This pair of glittery red pumps is the first of my designs I had made just for me. The perfect treat, and I will never forget the feeling of slipping on the perfect shoe, sitting on the couch in my living room and knowing that I created it just for myself. I snuck this pair into an OOTD post back from my time in Arizona around Christmas that you might (or might not) remember.
Happy Tuesday everybody and thank you for stopping by!
