I can’t walk in heels, but I have a strange fascination with them. I have a history of buying heels, trying them on once only to discover that yes, I still look like Bambi on ice, and chucking them at the back of my wardrobe. Besides the fact that I have to take them off to get anywhere, heels just don’t feel very “me”. I’ll forever be a Converse and Chelsea boots kind of girl. I still couldn’t resist snapping up the Spring Break Pointed Heels when a discount code from Asos came my way.
They’re the perfect heels for me. They’re just edgy enough to fit my style, while still being feminine enough to wear with pretty dresses at the many High Table dinners I will be attending next Fall. I’ve seen the lovely Anna rock them with skinny black jeans, and they looked amazing dressed down as well. I love the pointy toe, the mid-height heel and the feel of the fabric. I’ve only worn the Spring Break heels around the house so far, but they don’t pinch my feet too badly. Will it be a different story when I’ve been standing in them for two hours? Probably. Only time will tell.
The shopping experience could have been easier. It was the first time I ordered shoes from Asos, and they really need to work on their sizing charts. I found it really difficult to pick a size. I’m usually a US 9/UK 7, so I went with my usual size, but I could probably have done with a UK 6.5 (Asos doesn’t do half-sizes though).
Now that I have the perfect heels, I just need to master the whole “walking in heels” thing. Tips welcome!
