I've fallen behind with my Sunday Shoes posts lately, but have finally made some progress in tackling the shoe mountain. This pair has been sitting in the background for a while, and were in my photos on this post, but I haven't talked about them in much detail.
When I first saw Pretty Poodle, I almost dismissed them as being too much like my Tiny Ted heels. I mean, they really are quite similar. But then I realised how much I really like my Tiny Teds. I've worn them so much since I received them and I really like pink, so I was pretty easily swayed, it has to be said. I then popped online to find that my size had already sold out. Bah.
A quick call to the lovely Amy at the Brighton store and I had a pair on the way in the next day's post, though, and I certainly had no regrets when they arrived.
The similarities are there with the Tiny Ted heels - the perspex heels, ankle straps and bows on the back are all shared features. The upper of the shoe is a lovely irridescent pink colour, finished with scalloped edging which is such a cute touch and I've seen on a lot of new styles lately.
The soles are this season's polka dots. I have to admit, these polka dot boxes and soles are probably my least favourite of all of the IC shoe box designs over the past few years. They just seem a little less imaginative to me than all of the other lovely themes we've seen.
What does win it for me, is the super poodle on the front - a curly haired cutie with a flower in it's hair. I love the fuzzy texture of this and just how fitting I think it looks for a fifties theme. I so often think I was born into the wrong decade.
What do you think of Pretty Poodle?
