Yes, that’s right, there is a pompom shoe trend taking over the fashion world and I couldn’t be more excited about it. What was once thought of as only a craft supply is now getting a whole new fashionable spin to it and it is making summer sandals and heels a lot more playful. I’m usually one to stick to neutrals and simplicity within my wardrobe but shoes is where I like to have a little more fun. Every girl needs a pair of statement heels in their closet – its that pair of shoes that can be worn with the simplest of outfits and still make someone look twice.
These Aquazurra pompom beauties from Farfetch were instantly my top choice for this season’s statement piece. They add the perfect pop to an all white outfit and can be worn just as well with with summer dresses and skirts. I think we can all get caught up in sticking to fashion’s do’s and don’ts – which forces us to take it a little too seriously at times. Statement pieces are those collector items that remind you of a certain occasion, a specific time in your life and most of all they exude a type of feeling you don’t get from buying a basic sweater. These are the type of pieces that I value, invest in and store away for special moments. I’m pretty sure every time I take them out of their box, it will bring a smile to my face and I’m absolutely positive they will be a conversation piece at just about any event you attend. I think Christian Dior said it best: ‘You can never take too much care over the choice of your shoes. Too many women think that they are unimportant, but the real proof of an elegant woman is what is on her feet.’
