I have been a big fan of Upper Street shoes for a long time. I mean, who wouldn’t want to play shoe designer once in a while? So when they got in touch to tell me all about their new personal inscription service, and to ask me if I’d like to give it a go, there was no way I was going to say no to an offer like that!
I am a flats girl. I’ve tried many many times to do the whole heels thing, but alas I’m just too uncoordinated. I love Upper Street for offering ballet flats in their range and it was a total no-brainer that this was the style I was going to go for. I mean, I was tempted by the fabulous killer heels, but what’s the point of designing your dream shoes if you’re never going to actually wear them!?
It’s no secret that I’m a fan of all things bright and beautiful, but I actually decided to go for something more – ahem – subtle (for me) for this shoe. I have plenty of eye-gauging pairs already and so I figured that a nice soft grey would be the perfect addition to my ever-expanding collection. The heart motif stole my… er… heart and I couldn’t stop at just one so I added one to the front and the back! OK, OK so I did go for a brilliant teal and bright, bright pink for the hearts, but give a girl a break, how could I not?!
One of the many things that I love about Upper Street is their HUGE variety of fabrics and colours. I went for a suede for the main shoe and metallic leather (oh yes!) for the hearts. Yes, of course I was tempted by the animal prints, snakeskin and patent options, in fact I had to forcibly restrain myself from adding ALL OF THEM!
Upper Street are perfect for brides-to-be (and maybe their very lucky bridesmaids). If you’ve been struggling to find your perfect wedding day shoe, then look no further! If you use their bridal service you’re treated to some lovely added extras including the new personal inscription service where you can add a cute little message. I had mine read “Designed by Rock n Roll Bride” but you could have anything. How about your new married name or your wedding date? You can even add a blue insole as your ‘something blue’ and if you have a specific material you’d like to use in your shoes they can source that for you too!
