Perfect Black Pumps by Massimo Dutti

Even though there’s lots and lots of simple black pumps available, I still feel it’s difficult to find the perfect pair: classic, but with a nice extra touch to make them stand out and keep them from being just a “boring” pair of black shoes. To me, these patent pumps by Massimo Dutti are one such perfect pair of black pumps: Not only do they have a lovely shape and a not-too-high heel making them work appropriate, but they also feature a cute bow reminiscent of Miu Miu and a gold metal detail that set them apart from the masses of other black patent pumps.

They are available at the Massimo Dutti webstore for 125€.

Inspiration Monday / Shoe Challenge No.47

Diane Kruger
Finally, I managed to take part in Inspiration Monday again! This week’s picture was too cute to pass, so I took a break from reading books for uni and put together the following outfit:

とうとうまたInspiration Mondayに参加しました!今週の写真が可愛くて、絶対参加したかったです。卒業論文の本をよむことを休んで、こちらのコーデーを考えだしました:

Duras Peeptoe PumpsShoes: Duras Ambient / シューズ: Duras Ambient
Worn with: Top and skirt by H&M, belt by Laurèl, DIY flower hairclip.
H&Mのキャミソールとスカート、Laurèlのベルト、DIYの花クリップ。

This time, I didn’t take it as literally as the last times, and took mainly the colours as inspiration. I quite like the outcome, and it’s definitely something I wouldn’t have put together without the challenge! Both the top and skirt are quite old, and I haven’t worn them in a long time, but seeing them now I’m sure they’ll see more use again in the future 🙂 The shoes I bought in Japan, also quite a long time ago – even though they don’t look like it, they are probably the most uncomfortable shoes I own. Somehow they fit perfectly when I tried them on in the shop, but now they are too tight. It seems like they magically shrunk! Has that ever happened to you? ….I’ll try having them stretched, but if that doesn’t succeed I guess I’ll have to sell them, even though I really really like the style. Here they are close up:

前回はできるだけ元に近いコーデーにしましたが、今回はただ色をインスピレーションにしたコーデーにしました。チャレンジがなければこのようなあわせにしなかったのですが、結果はかなりすきです。キャミソールもスカートも結構古いもので、長い間着ていなかったのですが、これからはまたよくつかうようになりそうです :) 靴も結構まえに日本で買いました。そういうふうに見えないと思いますが、実は私のもってる靴のなかで一番はきにくい一足です。試着したときに、サイズがぴったりだったのに、今は小さいです。不思議に小さくなったきがします。このようなことは体験したことがありますか?。。。ストレッチしてもらうつもりですが、それでもダメだったら売らなければならないと思います。こちらはクローズ・アップです:

And, last up, a picture of my DIY flower hairclip – inspired by a pair of shoes from Pura Lopez I had originially planned on making shoe clips, but ended up making a hairclip instead:

最後に、自分で作った花のクリップの写真です。実はPura Lopezの靴をまねして、シューズ・クリップを作りたかったのですが、そのかわりに髪用のクリップを作りました:

Gold Buckle Pumps by R&E

R&E Gold Buckle Pumps

These red patent pumps have a beautiful shape, and the small platform should make them comfortable to wear. The gold buckle reminds me a lot of Roger Vivier and I think it adds a nice elegant touch. These are by R&E Rosessence, one of my favourite Japanese brands. They’re also available in black and cream colour. Click here to get them for 7,245¥ (approx. 64€).
