I was delighted to be sent these absolutely amazing, black caged wedges by high street footwear brand Koi Couture. When it comes to wedges or heels I only ever usually tend to opt for black as it seems to go with everything, but I was yet to own a caged pair so Koi Couture have kindly filled the gap in my shoe collection for me. I worked out when I'm wearing these 6 inch beauties I'm a gigantic 6"3 tall! I never had a problem with wearing heels despite being rather tall for a girl already because my ex-boyfriend was 6"4 so it didn't particularly matter, now I'm a little dubious because I'll be towering over the majority of men. However, Victoria made the point this morning that women should not dress for men, but for themselves. That is certainly a philosophy I intend to follow anyway! I personally believe it's unfair that taller ladies should be denied the privilege and fun of wearing sky-scraper wedges.
I've worn this shirt before in a previous post open which you can see here. It was such a lucky find in the Oxford Street Urban Outfitters considering it's vintage Christian Dior and I only paid around £16 for it! I'm also wearing my YSL 'Arty' style ring once again from Ellise Vintage. I absolutely love it and have received a ton of compliments on it already! Speaking of YSL, it seems like the fashion world is in a right huff about Yves Saint Laurent officially re-branding themselves as Saint Laurent Paris, so they're changing from 'YSL' to 'SLP'. What are your opinions on this? Personally, I think their re-brand is an awful idea. 'YSL' is a classic household name and in my opinion it seems they had no reason to need to change at all. Let's face it, 'YSL' also rolls off the tongue so much better too!
