I'm so sorry for the late, late post! Its been a looooong day and a long next three days. Lol. But better late than never right?! This continues my series of the shoes that I don't wear often enough!
Today's shoes in question are these gorgeous mule slides. The deep maroon color is so beautiful! I don't know why I don't wear them as often as they deserve! But they are being broken out tomorrow night -fingers crossed!- I'm going to an event and I plan on wearing this whole look to the event.
I have to work 10 hours before so I feel like this is a good combination of dressy and comfortable.
Everything in this look is subtle, yet striking. Going back to the shoes. I think I got them at Off Broadway Shoes because I was drawn to the look of them. I've worn them a few times. I do remember the first time or two, they were a bit hard to keep on my feet. I felt I had to pinch my toes and squeeze my foot to make sure they didn't 'slide' right out!..... (I'll see myself out...)
But that's been the case with many a pair of shoes. Sometimes it just takes time to break them in. During this shoot, they were a dream. No trouble whatsoever.
Actually, side story time! One of my favorite pairs of heels are the nude pairs -I've used them many a time on this blog! The first time I wore them was to a graduation ceremony. My feet KILLED the whole time and afterwards! I didn't wear them for a long time and then tried them out again for a shoot and what would you know? They were fine! And ever since, they've been fine! They are now one of my favorite pairs of shoes!
So, my advice is don't give up on a shoe right away. Give it a few wears. The first wear or two (or three) maybe just breaking it in.
I'll let you know how these bad boys do tomorrow night! Stay tuned!
Thanks for reading!
