Online Shoe Files – Nudes, Tans, and Wedges

10 December 2010

Shoes Dorothy P

I recently bought some gorgeous nude heels from Dorothy Perkins!

I’ve been looking for a pair like these for ages – simple, classic shape, lovely shiny finish, snug and comfy, and goes with practically anything. A most excellent buy.

Shoes Betts

This pair is also a favourite, from Betts.

The tan, strappy, heeled sandal is great for wearing with summer dresses. It has a smart casual look, which makes them quite versatile.

Shoes New look

Also new is this black strap wedge from New Look.

They were on sale and so cheap, that I couldn’t resist!! I’ve been clomping around in them everywhere!

Shoe shopping online is – honestly – only good for people whose feet are a standard size. Which means when you go shoe shopping, you always fit the SAME SIZE.

Some people’s feet are between sizes. Sometimes they fit 7, or 7.5 or 8. In which case, online shoe shopping can be a headache.

The biggest reason I like to buy shoes online – is that I have really small feet.

I’m a size Aus 5/  US 5 / UK 3 / EUR 35.

So when I walk into a shoe shop, the probability of me finding a shoe that I like, that are in my size – is close to BIG FAT ZERO. I always have to get the sales person to call other stores, order them in, wait for the delivery, then pick it up at a later date. So I may as well just buy them online and have them delivered to my door.

And once you buy shoes from an online shop and get to know their sizing, it’s very easy the next time :)

Other reasons I like to buy shoes online – sales and cheap prices!

Signing up to an online shop’s newsletter lets you pounce on any sales announcements that fall into your inbox.

But watch out for online shops that sell REALLY cheap shoes. The photographs may look amazing and the prices may be too good to be true, but when the shoes arrive, the shoe usually looks shocking. So it’s best to find a reputable online shop that comes well recommended.

Good luck!
