Dare I ask..what do you think of these?

I know they're not to everyone's taste but I think they may look quite fun with dark straight/skinny jeans and a snazzy top?

Lottapianos Thu 26-Nov-15 08:08:26

I think they're lovely, very pretty colours

Dowser Thu 26-Nov-15 08:09:47

I love them, but I suspect you and I might be in the minority ;-)

My fave pair are black suede with a pink edging where shoe meets foot and black and white striped heels and a cute little baby cham bambi deer on the heel.

They sound lurid but are actually more tamed down than the description I've just given them. Found those little beauties in tkmaxx.

Where are those from?

Thanks Lotta.

I know Ruby Shoo shoes aren't to everyone's taste. I'd been hunting for a pair of these in a size 6 for ages, and finally found a pair.

DP has said he will get them for me for Christmas..whoop! smile

Could wear with a nice green dress too. Lots of green in the shop. They would look great with my fab new pink joe brown summer dress.

DavetheCat2001 Thu 26-Nov-15 08:12:43

They are Ruby Shoo, Dowser.

I bought another pair to work to my work Xmas do the other day as well as the theme is 'black and white' and I had no decent shoes to wear.

Saw the one's above on Pinterest and just fell in love. Some of the designs are a bit too bonkers for even me, but I do like these as I like to wear jeans a lot and think they'll go quite well.

DavetheCat2001 Thu 26-Nov-15 08:15:05

These are the one's I bought to wear to my work do

confusedandemployed Thu 26-Nov-15 08:15:15

They are lush!

I was going to buy the spotty ones for my wedding. I love ruby shoo and irregular choice shoes. I can have a perfectly normal looking outfit until you get to my feet. grin

I find them very very ugly. No redeeming features at all.

Remind me of the kind of shoes worn by pantomime dames.

Dowser Thu 26-Nov-15 08:21:40

Arrrrgh! I've just had my husband pay £150 for three pairs of hotter shoes ( groan, I know) but I need a broader size when my feet swell and I've just fallen in love with some of those on ruby shoo.

I don't wear my little beauties very much for that reason.

I got a black pair, maroon suede and purple suede. Maybe I could customise them with something. All with a bar across and heels.

They are very nice but I do love quirky.

DavetheCat2001 Thu 26-Nov-15 08:22:32

Dreams - I've seen several brides in very elegant, simple looking wedding dresses and then some eccentric footwear. I think it looks great! grin

Dowser Thu 26-Nov-15 08:24:47

One mans meat and all that....I love these

DavetheCat2001 Thu 26-Nov-15 08:26:26

ooh those are nice.

I have a pair of shoes that look very like that. Same colour and everything. I do like Mary Jane style.

Dowser Thu 26-Nov-15 08:29:06

These would go with a lot of outfits

Thanks op, am in shoe heaven now

RonaldMcDonald Thu 26-Nov-15 08:29:10

I dislike them (especially the wooden heel)

Dowser Thu 26-Nov-15 08:31:09

Me too.
I'm wondering if I can add something to the shoes which wouldn't be permanent. A little bow near the clasp that I could co ordinate with what I'm wearing.

Would have to be clip on not stick on especially with the suede ones.

DavetheCat2001 Thu 26-Nov-15 08:33:39

Maybe you could find something in Accessorize? They do all sorts of clip on flowers.

Dowser Thu 26-Nov-15 08:36:11

These are what I call ugly

But I don't like high wedges anyway.

I have some low wedged about 1/2 inch sandals.

Dowser Thu 26-Nov-15 08:36:20

I'll check them out.

Dowser Thu 26-Nov-15 08:41:00

Or arrrghhhh!

Just wrong!

Now a polka dotted, kitten heeled Mary Jane....;-)

YouMakeMyDreams Thu 26-Nov-15 10:06:58

Dav either ended up wearing trainers in the day because the path to the chapel well wasn't really a path and had a retro type pair of heels for nighttime. Never got to wear them though because I tripped on my dress and hurt my ankle hmm sober.

Lonelynessie Thu 26-Nov-15 10:59:50

I really think they look like dressing up shoes, and I have seen them worn in real life and they always look really weird. But, if you are really very kooky then you might get away with it.

TheVeryThing Thu 26-Nov-15 11:03:27

Not my taste at all but if you like them, go for it!
