Zara Burgundy Heels

Saturday 20 April 2013

Ankle buckle shoes seem to be a big trend right now. From Gucci to Pierre Hardy, and Kim Kardashian just can’t seem to get enough of hers! And to be honest, I couldn’t either. As a good little blogger does, I saw these on a fashion blog and instantly fell in love. I’m afraid I can’t remember where I saw them, but I instantly wanted them.

Now I was brought up where it felt like Christmas when my mum would come home with a sack full of hand me down clothes from me friend’s older daughters, free clothes? And free clothes above my price range? Yes please.

I have no problem with seconds, and so as these shoes are no longer for sale in Zara, to eBay I went.

I love the colour of these, the burgundy hue is so vivid, and the suede gives them a luxury quality. Although maybe not the best for the current rain filled season.

When it warms up- yes, when, I’m being an optimist- I’m planning on pairing these with shorts or maybe a midi skirt for more formal dress. But right now, casual meets glamour was my aim, with a relaxed pair of camo trousers and a denim jacket.

Heels- Zara
Denim Jacket- Topshop (Similar here)
Top- Matalan
Camo Trousers- Zara (Similar here)
Necklace- An independent jewellery boutique in Manchester.

They are actually considered midi heels, which usually I stay way clear of- I’m a killer heel kind of gal. My highest are 7inch! Granted they have only ever made an appearance once... However surprisingly I rather liked the midi height, I may be a changed girl. 

I’m looking for more inspiration to wear with them, what would you suggest?
