I've just been end-of-maternity-leave shopping, and bought them, but am now thinking I should swap for the black. I'd be wearing them with plain black or grey trousers and tops - trying to inject a little colour.

Whats your job

Not at all OTT. IMO it's heel height that would render them inappropriate.

stepfordwife Tue 19-Aug-08 16:40:48

they're fab
just what you need for faking boosting your confidence for going back after mat leave grin

Work in a head office - it's a smart trousers and top sort of place rather than suits, and a little bit of individuality doesn't do any harm - but it's not my usual style!

i.e. stilettos can look a bit iffy, those look gorgeous envy

No, they'll be lovely when you're back in Oz fighting witches.

I agree with the others, they are absolutley fab, wear them and be proud!

Lauriefairycake Tue 19-Aug-08 16:42:17

I like them, not ott for work at all

Flamesparrow Tue 19-Aug-08 16:43:01

Ooh i love them

ApuskiDusky Tue 19-Aug-08 16:44:09

Cocolepew, when I am missing my boy too much, I can just click the heels together - there's no place like home... grin

OrmIrian Tue 19-Aug-08 16:46:05

Perfect! Wish I could get away with those but I already tower over most of the people in my office.

MamaG Tue 19-Aug-08 16:47:01

I have red stilettoes which I wear for work! I wear them with smart black trousers, a thin red belt and a balck or white top

I always feel fab in them

derelicte Tue 19-Aug-08 16:56:42

MamaG - you prob have the attitude (and balance) to wear them. I don't grin

cocolepew Tue 19-Aug-08 16:57:41

grin they are lovely really.

ApuskiDusky Tue 19-Aug-08 17:20:22

OK, I will abide by the collective wisdom of MN and keep the red ones, whatever DH says when he sees them! Now I need a red belt..

Dd1 has just bought M&S's copy of those, to add to her 'Slut Shoe Collection.' grin

MrsQ Tue 19-Aug-08 18:24:56

Love 'em. And as Stepfordwife said, just the thing for strutting back into the office with a 'baby, what baby?' kind of glance over the shoulder wink

AuntieMaggie Tue 19-Aug-08 18:26:56

i love them! i want some now!

bundle Tue 19-Aug-08 18:28:07

they're lovely and would work well with opaque tights

bikerunski Tue 19-Aug-08 19:07:03

Fab, I want some, but about to start mat leave, so probably impractical right now!

PinkyDinkyDooToo Tue 19-Aug-08 21:16:08

I was expecting some prostitute style shoes grin but they are gorgeous. I want them for the school run so I can be a yummy mummy

PinkyDinkyDooToo Tue 19-Aug-08 21:17:57

Suedonim I love those M&S shoes they are fab

GrapeJelly Tue 19-Aug-08 21:38:52

No, they're gorgeous. They'll put a smile on your face all day at work!
