jetaime 's Thoughts:

My old pair of black evening shoes don’t fit me anymore, and seen as it’s Christmas and I have a few parties coming up, I thought now was the time to get a new pair! But I am so stuck on which to buy! For one of the parties I would be wearing them with my favourite LBD, a strapless silk number that falls around four to five inches above the knee, just thought I’d let you know!

Pair number one –
A massive £65 from River Island, but those studs and straps are to die for, yes? The heel is 11.5cm (including the concealed platform) so I would be around 5’10 in these. I absolutely fell in love with them, but I’m dubious about the price. Has anybody bought heels from RI before? Because I was wondering if they were comfy! And are these complete hooker shoes?

Pair number two –
A far far more reasonable £25 from New Look. They’re basic, with massive heels, I’m guessing 5 inches, so I would be 5’11 in these! I love the three straps but I’m worried that the massive and completely inconspicuous platform would look a bit clumpy!

And so I’m asking the most fashion conscious people that exist to please please help me decide!

if it was me, i would get the first pair, in a go-with-what-you-love, first instinct kind of way.. the second pair are more classic, and less expensive, but tis' the season to be celebratory and decadent, right? and the first pair are just. so. awesome. definitely those! :)

yeahh that's what I thought! But I am officially broke after I bought this cropped blazer on the weekend (pics coming soon hehe!) so I'm thinking I am going to buy a plain pair and DIY!! but thankyou for your advice :D

i love the first but i think the second are more timeless and classic, so i guess its more a matter of if your looking for something to last the trends or not... i think the only solution is to buy both...
jetaime on November 29
that's just what I thought! I would love to buy both, but I can't afford it haha! thankyou for your advice!

jetaime on November 29
hehe, I wish I could buy both pairs! thankyou for your advice!!

I'd get the River Islands just because fierce, statement heels are wayyy more worth it. I've personally never worn any of their heels, only their sandals, so I'm not quite sure how they are comfort wise, but their shoes are really well constructed, you can tell how much thought is put into the shoes because the level of craftsmanship is insane.
jetaime on November 29
thankyou for your advice! at the moment I'm thinking of getting the second pair, or a similar pair anyway, and diying with studs or something!!
