I first became a fan of Shoezone when Joe was small. They sold the cutest t-bar canvas shoes that had a real retro feel and were a total bargain (2 pairs for £8 as I recall.) I loved them, and of course I had a look at the ladies selection, and found it to be full of really pretty sandals and flat pumps, all of which were really affordable. I was converted and now regularly buy shoes from the brand.
I was recently offered the opportunity to review a pair of shoes, sandals or boots from their current lines. I was spoiled for choice, but decided that, as it was almost summer, I would opt for sandals, especially as I am now less than a month away from my summer holiday. One style just jumped out at me for the design which can definitely be classed as haute hippie, Marakesh Express influenced. This was the Lilley multi-bead t-bar sandal, and they are simply beaut!
These are just the perfect summer sandal. They would look amazing in holiday, at a summer festival, or just worn with jeans on a staycation. The synthetic gold upper is covered with gorgeous multi-colour beads which adds to the boho style, and makes them a great choice to wear for the evening too, especially on those days when it is just too warm for heels.
I think these sandals are stunning, so I wore them to channel the style of one of my fashion Icons, doomed 60s model and socialite Talitha Getty.
My Talitha Style with Shoezone
Pretty, hippie style sandals that are comfortable, adjustable and cost less than £15. I think these are an absolute no-brainer when it comes to both style and value, and the fact that they are light as a feather despite the beads, and are just so comfortable to wear, makes them an even more attractive proposition.
