The Ultimate Brogues in White and Silver | With Head to Toe Purple

Purple skinnies and top with silver and white brogues - over 40 fashion
Every once in a while I discover somewhere new to shop online, and it makes me wonder why I always, always go into autopilot and type in "asos" or "topshop" whenever I'm looking for something to buy. Sure, it's great to have your go-to shops, but when I found an absolute diamond of a shoe like these Helsar silver and white brogues, it frightened me that I may have missed them otherwise! I mentioned on Instagram that these were "the brogues to end all brogues", and had Kelya Shoes not pinged me an email earlier this month I may never have found such a comfy but striking pair to add to my growing brogue collection. Maybe this is the end, though - no other pair can beat these, surely...?!

I think the pictures say it all - the design is so amazing, I don't think I've seen two-tone brogues with such a strong metallic before. The cushioned, flat sole was incredibly comfortable right from the first wear (and no rubbing even though I wore them all day). For some reason purple sprang to mind when I wore them last weekend, so I went head-to-toe purple and echoed the silver with my metallic-thread chevron sweater. With a big splash of orange on my head(!) it made a simple weekend look I loved.


If you're looking for high quality but unusual designs in footwear, I'd highly recommend Kelya. Their range is quite selective brands-wise and not exactly massive, but I loved a large proportion of the designs and they have as many fabulous flats as they have heart-stopping heels (men's shoes too). They're a Portuguese company but delivery was super quick: they offer free standard shipping on all online orders over €150 (£120, or $200). Considering the shipping costs of some international retailers, theirs is quite reasonable at less than a tenner.


Have you discovered any new-to-you retailers lately that you're so glad to have found? And are any of you mad about brogues like I am (I have about 10 pairs)... do share in the comments!

  10. Oh yes, these are very smart. And when they are also comfortable, that is the best. Love them in combination with your purple outfit, but they are of course very versatile. I am still eyeing complete silver brogues...

    1. Thanks Lisa, I'm sure there'll be lots of designs you like. I'm afraid I get my hair coloured every three weeks at the hairdresser's - it's not a home-dye job so I couldn't tell you the colour, sorry! x

  15. Red hair and silver perfection.
    Thank you so much for so many things, dear Catherine
