Hip to be squarePosted: August 25, 2011
When it comes to fashion decades I’m really not a fan of the 60’s. Shift dresses and box-shaped silhouettes don’t get my attention the way 70’s and 80’s looks do. Which is why I’ve surprised myself by buying these Evans shoes….
I like them so much I’m even thinking about buying them in burgundy too.
The 60’s-esque low block heel signals a huge departure for me, and tasseled loafers are far more of a classic look than I would go for normally. The very square block heel while on trend, also gives them a whiff of pensioner- chic. It’s a strange heel height- too high to be called a flat- not quite high enough to be considered a mid- heel. It’s a pensioner heel. The patent leather saves them from being all out Grandma- but only just. I think I’m going to have to exclusively wear them with snazzy tights just to snatch them from the brink of fuddy-duddyness.
Other pensioner heels I’ve found online that I quite like….
Lets talk about the tights. I bought them on the strength of this single photo of fellow fatshion blogger, Tiffany from Fat Shopaholic..
I don’t think there was more than 3 mins between first photo sighting and me clicking “go to checkout”. Impulsive, even for an impulse buy. Instant love. I also love Tiffany. If you’ve never read her blog, go there now. Now, I said.
