The sweet smell of Vanilla
21st Jun 2012
I always struggle with shoes. I am lamentably bad at wearing stilettos (I know, what about the irony of that?!) and always end up walking like I’ve got a hot poker up my bum because of the sheer blistering AGONY of the things.
So if I’m not in ballet pumps or Birkies, my next best option is really the wedge, which is why I superlikey these cute beaded summer-bright espadrilles from Oxford boutique Vanilla, especially as they’re now in the sale at £49 (down from £69). Perfect for wearing with skinny jeans , or on your annual break to Turks & Caicos or Necker Island. (Or, if you’re like me, er, Menorca).
By the way, it’s definitely worth checking out Vanilla if you’re passing through Summertown - they specialise in grown up, timeless fashion (TopShop addicts, this one’s not for you), accessories and homeware, lovely classics, usually quite pricy but in the sale, enticingly affordable. Start circling now.
