WANTED: Manolo Blahnik BB Patent Pumps!April 25, 2013
At last, I found my perfect pumps! Not sure if you saw one of my other blog posts but I have been banging on about finding the perfect pair of pumps after coming to terms with the fact that the Christian Louboutin Pigalle's
(as beautiful as they are) are not meant for my feet. So off I went on
my shoe hunt and boy did I go everywhere! Online, Oxford Street, Selfridges, Harvey Nichols and low and behold there they were.. the Manolo Blahnik 'BB Pumps' displayed beautifully at Harrods.
These gorgeous beauties are the classic silhouette stiletto with a flattering pointed toe and elegant 4 inch heel. They come in a range of colours but the black patent leather version are my preferred option as I know I can wear them with anything in my wardrobe through all seasons. As soon as I tried them on, they completely changed my outfit and I fell in love!
The most important thing for me is fit and the main problem I've been having with finding the right pumps is that sizing with other shoes just haven't been the right fit. I'm normally a UK 7 but when trying on this particular shape, the 7's have been too big and the 6's fit but cripple my feet. This collection comes in half sizes so the 6 and a half fit me perfectly and comfortably ( well .. as comfortably as a pair of stiletto heels are going to be) There's absolutely no point in investing in a pair of shoes you don't get to wear so making sure they are wearable is vital.
It has been a long journey people but finally, I found my perfect pumps! These lovelies have definitely made it to the top of my investment purchase list and will need to be mine VERY SOON! Where there is a will, there is a way ;-)
