Sunday Shoes 107..

IMG_8176

I can't quite believe how long it's taken me to take some photos and write about these little cuties. I bought them in the "moving sale" which Irregular Choice ran a while ago when they were making the transition to their new website. I'd originally preferred the burgundy colourway but by the time I'd noticed the sale, there was only black left. And I still think they're mighty cute.

Yankee Doodle heels: Irregular Choice
The main part of the shoe is black and white gingham; a print which always seems to have a retro feel. With black leather effect to the heels, these already seem a lot more "sensible" than most of my IC collection. That said, I think that the monochrome nature of them gives a lot of potential for pairing with outfits in just about any colour combination.

Okay, so maybe not entirely sensible as the backs of the heels also sport a pom pom which, weirdly enough (after my comments on White Rabbit recently), I really like on these. I don't know if it's the size of the pom poms or what, but they just kind of....work.

On to the front of the shoe, which are a rabbit's face, complete with ears and embroidered eyes and  noses. I think they're basically amazing and can see me getting a lot of wear from these in the future.

  2. It's the fluffiness of the pom pom. It says, "I AM A POM POM, ADORE ME!" whereas the other pom poms are a bit pathetic comparatively and half-baked!!!x

    1. I think you're right. The teeny ones just aren't so effective, I think.
