ShoeMe Shoe Style Featuring Gold Sandals by NaturalizerSunday, May 04, 2014
This season, I need to step up my game in the footwear department. Basic black Hush Puppies for work, black high-heeled sandals for a night out on the town and a black pair of (as worn by Carrie Bradshaw) Manolo Blahnik jeweled buckle D'Orsay pumps? Well, those are for extra special occasions. What do they all have in common? They're all black. Yes, indeed. It's time to spice up my shoe collection! With an invitation to join the ShoeMe.ca Style Blogger Ambassador Program, I had no excuse but delve into their online collection of over 150 brands and pick my favourite pair to try out, a
feet feat in and of itself.
After about an hour or three, I kept returning to a bookmarked pair of Naturalizer sandals that seemed to be calling my name - spiced gold, metallic Dafny platform sandals. I liked the look of the gold side buckle and metal details next to the warm colour of the golden leather uppers. And the overall dressy look of the sandal in a metallic hue combined with a more casual cork midsole would surely make it a versatile addition to my growing shoe collection.
The description on ShoeMe.ca indicated that these sandals are flexible, lightweight, and ergonomically designed with soft cushioning insoles and breathable linings. And that, my friends, is surely what my Fred Flintstone feet need; comfortable shoes that look good and feel great. For a recent family function, I wore my new Supertrash dress (seen above) in that infamous black colour I mentioned earlier. To add some pizzazz, I wore me new gold sandals and matched them with gold earrings and a gold bracelet. I just so happened to be wearing one of the newest shades of nail polish from the Yves Rocher 2014 summer collection and it just so happened to be gold. A bit too much gold, perhaps? Just be grateful I took the time to manicure my little piggies before snapping these close-ups.
Ordering shoes online can sometimes be tricky since you don't get to try them on before purchasing them. The good news is that when ordering through ShoeMe.ca, Canada's leading online shoe retailer, you not only enjoy free shipping but free returns as well. Miraculously, my new sandals fit me perfectly. I did experience a little rubbing on the back of my ankle due to a high counter but I have yet to fully break in my new sandals. The good news is that summer is around the corner and there will be plenty of opportunities to dress them up or dress them down. Don't they look great with denim?
