Sunday Shoes 050: Irregular Choice Little Tipple
This is the first of the two pairs of Irregular Choice I bought on my recent trip to the Carnaby Street store in London. I'd seen Little Tipple on the website but I think maybe the angle of the photos or something had made me think that their heel was a lot lower than it is. I was pleasantly surprised when I saw them in the flesh and tried them on.
The pink is lovely and bright, with a pale pink edging to the laser cut scalloped edges which I think make them look so delicate and summery. The heel is what I'd consider the "courtesan standard" type, and this mottled pink heel reminds me of the heels on my Mrs Beasley green scottie dog pair. (Which I might have forgotten I owned until I typed that).
On the front, a two-tone pink fabric bow, finished with floral sprigs. I think the fact that they are mostly one colour makes them eye-catching enough without being overwhelmingly covered in all of the insane charms and suchlike which some pairs are. Not that I'm not a fan of those designs as well; it's just that there's a time and a place for different types of shoe.
What do you think? Subtle by Irregular Choice standards, but I still can't wait to wear them.
