Could You Be the Most Beautiful Shoes in the World

Oh how I love my French Connection suede platform heels…!

Do I have to write any more than that? Should I add that I love them even more with my patterned tights? I think they have to be my most favourite pair of shoes of all the shoes I own. Why I haven’t paired them with these tights before I have no idea, to me this is footwear heaven. If you love them as much as I do and have size 5 (UK) feet, they’re still available (at the time of writing) at half price from Go forth and multiply your shoe collection. Your feet will thank you for it.

I will write one extra thing… something I’ve noticed about these patterned tights: they’re a bit of an optical illusion, I think they make your (my) legs look slimmer than, say, solid opaques. The pattern creates a thick dark line around the edge of your leg with a lighter bit inbetween, a bit like the bodycon dresses which are black up the sides with a white strip up the middle (see the Stella McCartney one on Kate Winslet here). Why is it that you realise these things from looking at photos and it’s not obvious when looking in the mirror?! I think I may find myself doing some patterned tights shopping at the weekend 🙂
