This week I was lucky enough to be invited to the Huawei P30 global launch in Paris. The three day event was filled with exciting activities and one of the standouts for me was visiting the Palace of Versailles. I haven’t been there since I was a child so it was amazing to go back and see it again.
It’s spring time in Paris so when the sun is shining the weather can be warm so I opted for this Camilla and Marc mini dress. However the mornings and afternoons are quite cool so I teamed it with my Stuart Weitzman suede over-the-knee boots and my DVF red faux fur coat—both great layering pieces. I wanted to add extra shape to this look so I cinched it in with my black Isabel Marant belt. To accentuate the pink florals in the print on my dress so I decided on taking my pink Bulgari bag with body strap out for the day. It’s the perfect style of bag when you’re on the go traveling and sightseeing as it keeps your hands free and takes out the hassle of having to carry a bag around.
Any shoe that falls into the statement heels category has my heart. Show-stopping heels are one of the quickest and easiest ways to take an outfit next-level. In fact, I often update my wardrobe each season by buying one to two pairs of statement heels. I find that it’s the kind of purchase I can always get plenty of wear out of in the years to come. All my favourite designers’ shoe game has been strong this season but these are some of my current faves. Hopefully you’ll find a new addition to your shopping list!
Ah leopard print. The unexpected neutral. I’ve got a few leopard print pieces in my wardrobe and I’ve found they’re quite easy to mix and match so this statement heel would definitely be in high rotation for me.
If you’re not a fan of a teetering on a stiletto heel then a block heel is ideal as it provides slightly more support (not to mention it’s easier to walk in!). The gold buckles and multistrap design makes this statement heel quite modern and fresh.
I love Alaïa heels for their great craftsmanship but also the fact they’re just so fashion-forward. The beautiful blush colour makes this an easy shoe to mix and match with lots of different looks but the cutouts and stitching are the kind of finishing touches that elevate it from your average, garden-variety heel.
