Trying to choose just one pair of shoes from Sarenza is like choosing your favourite choccy from the box of Celebrations, there’s just so many varieties, how can you pick just one? But just occasionally your eyes gaze upon a mystical object of sheer gorgeousness,and you fall deeply in LUST. And that is how I feel about my choice.
These are little beauties, Burlesque Beauty to give them their full title. As you might have guessed from the gorgeously pretty yet quirky design, these are from Irregular Choice. I love them for so many reasons – for the name ‘Burlesque Beauty’ which just evokes images of the glamour of Dita Von Teese, for those purple/violet bouquet that festoon the front, for the neat heel which wouldn’t induce vertigo, and most importantly, I love them because they remind me of Marilyn Monroe!
Marilyn Monroe…am I confusing you? Well, allow me to explain.I’m a huge fan of Marilyn Monroe, and one of my favourite pictures of Marilyn is this shot of Marilyn taken to promote the film River of No Return in 1954. In the film Marilyn plays a saloon singer/Burlesque Beauty and wears a series of rather gorgeous corsets. And just look at the one she’s wearing in this shot..doesn’t it remind you of a certain irregular Choice shoe? I have to wonder if Marilyn was the Burlesque Beauty in the mind when this shoe was created.
Sarenza are looking for a new shoe ambassador and that sounds like my perfect job…the only difficulty would be choosing one pair of shoes from the huge collection to wear. But I would definitely start with the Burlesque Beauties – a style icon in shoe form!
