Wisteria hysteria


Shoebox opening alert, you'd better brace yourselves!


I ordered the red Wisteria wedges from Topshop a while ago. No link to share I'm afraid, since they're already sold out. They were available in powder pink and black as well, but the bright red stole my heart upon sight.


Aren't they beauties?

The obligatory detail shots:



Although the chiffon ties are polyester (and rightfully so as I believe silk chiffon is way too fragile to use on shoes) the suede covering the wedge and the inside of the shoe are all real, natural leather.


And they were made in Spain, which I guess kinda crosses out child labor, underpaid workers, bad health conditions and other nasty things we hear about all the time.


Surprisingly, they're really comfortable, once you get past the vertigo from all that extra height. Being 1,70m/5ft7in tall I almost feel *too tall* wearing them. But that's silly, right?

Now, if only I knew what to wear them with...

Hot cha those are gorgeous. If you can't find anything to wear them with, I'd be happy to adopt them!

I'm too afraid to order online pumps. I wear a UK5 in topshop's flats. Thus, when it comes to heels I always wear UK4. What's your opinion?

@Sal
Damn, you're fast! And you're also first in my list, if I ever decide to part ways with them. Just don't count too much on it yet :p

@Christiana
Pumps are a difficult thing to order online indeed, especially for me being in-between sizes. I wear 39 in flats and either 38 or 39 in heels, so I can never be 100% sure. But since these are open-toe and tie with chiffon, I guessed that they would have some give and ordered the 38. Luckily, my guess was right!

@Maria S.
Thank you!

I'm saving these to wear next time you're in town and we go out to have some serious drinks.

Amazing!!! Hope you enjoy them.But you're pulling my strings now..I ordered a pair of shoes from Topman, they haven't arrived yet..It's been 2 weeks since they were sent and nothing...Any ideas what I can do? Topman says that cannot track international orders..

Raquel said...

they're very glam! and red shoes can turn a plain outfit into an amazing one! good choice lopi.
oh I laughed about "made in spain", two weeks ago, when I went to topshop on oxford street, I picked up a pair of random shoes, and turning them it said "made in Portugal" haha! but I wanted also to say, if they're made in Portugal or Spain, there won't be child labour, though underpaid one may exist, due to this crappy economy... but let's hope not!!
