What’s your favourite part of The Wizard of Oz? Dorothy, played by the legendary Judy Garland at her most heartbreaking? The hilarious Cowardly Lion? Maybe it’s the oh-so-cute Toto? Well, if you’re anything like me, your favourite part of The Wizard of Oz will be Dorothy’s exquisite ruby-red slippers, those stunning sparkly numbers that she had to drop a house on a witch to get. Dorothy showed that sparkly, glittery shoes do not need to be restricted simply to evening occasions – she even rocked hers with gingham!
This season Spartoo have an amazing selection of glittery shoes that add sparkle to even the wettest and dullest of days (yes, I am thinking today). With a selection of different heel sizes, round, pointed and peep toed, there is a style to suit everyone. Personal favourites of mine are Stylistclick Liz gold Mary Janes, which could be Miu Miu and yet cost just £35 and the Frida Jelena’s, which have a Hollywood 1940s feel and which I have added to my already massive Spartoo shopping list.
So, the challenge for May, shoe-nista’s, should you accept it, is to add sparkly shoes to your day wardrobe. I’m thinking skinny jeans, crisp white shirt, and a touch of sparkle on your feet. Understated and unexpected – perfect daytime attire.
