I’ve wanted a pair of glittery gold shoes for the longest time. I’d imagined a vintage pair of dancing shoes with a little heel, and watched them come and go on eBay in varying sizes, but never mine. So when French shoemakers Dessine Moi Un Soulier emailed me about the idea behind their website – to create your own unique pair of shoes – I got thinking! I had a little play with some designs (you can pick Brogues as a design too, in everything from suede to metallic, so you can see why I had problems!), before settling on a gold glittering ballet flat, complete with chunky bow and a patent nude edging. I’m in love with them! Of course, they’re not going to be an every day shoe, but come out when something a bit special is required, or when I know I’m going to be dancing ; ) They’re reminiscent of something a Disney princess might wear.
And yes, pouring glitter everywhere for a few photos wasn’t such a great idea. I think I’m going to be sparkling for weeks to come.
Thank you Dessine Moi Un Soulier! x
