I'm officially a designer! .. for myself anyway. This is definitely the way to go when it comes to shoes! The feeling of opening that lacquered black Upper Street box is so much more exciting because you know the contents inside were hand picked down to the very insole by you. When Sabrina, Jasmine and I walked into Polkadot we instantly fell in love with the same classic pump, which sparked the idea for "1 shoes, 3 designs". Picking the style was the easy part, flipping through that book of swatches made me want to own the same style of shoe in 30 different designs. I may have to start working on that for my wardrobe...
2 weeks later, I was trotting around the store, thinking "these are better than I could have imagined!!" I went for a black calf hair in anticipation for everyday wear during winter, but added a patch of purple leopard to keep it a funky, fun piece.
Upper Street tackles the issue of size by offering 33 - 44, so big feet or small feet, you wont be short of glam footwear. Also, did I mention how comfy they are? I couldn't help but wear them immediately the day after and didn't have to make an emergency stop to change into my flats, which is a godsend! I am officially hooked, I spent an entire evening in bed designing the perfect shoe for every possible occasion in my life. You have been warned, it's very addictive.
Be sure to pop by Polkadot Boutique and start getting creative with your footwear. Each pair starts at around $1800 and varies on what kind of fabrics you pick. The service is smooth sailing and these babies are made to last longer, making it a steal! Happy designing ladies!
