Gourmet Day: Shoe Challenge No.62

Shortly after my fiancé arrived, we went for a lunch with friends at the wonderful restaurant of star cook Heinz Winkler – Even though I love good food it’s been the first time for me to go to such a restaurant, and a great experience! The weather was great, so we could sit outside and enjoy the beautiful view of the mountains. Here are the pictures of the menu I chose:

My favourite was, of course, the dessert – but that’s just because I’m a dessert addict! I chose the Crêpes with Grand Marnier for dessert, and didn’t regret it, though the other dessert was really nice too (I stole a bite from my fiancé – but he’s not that into sweets anyway 😉 ) But the best part was that two extra “desserts” were included – the assortment in the picture above the crêpes for two to share and a praline of your choice….I had a hard time choosing!

So, finally on to the Shoe Challenge:

The shoes are actually my mom’s but I wear them a lot too – lucky we have the same size! I was my mom’s “shopping assistant” for these, and with my help she finally found a pair of wedges she liked. These shoes I love for their special heel, and the beautiful bow in the front:

These are my newest shoes, a birthday present from my lovely fiance – thank you!!! I have lusted for these for a long time, and just in time for my birthday, they went on sale so I guess it was meant to be (right?). They were not available in the shop anymore, so I ordered them online, and now finally I wore them. Of course I had to save these asap 🙂 I’m happy that despite the height of 14,5cm they are also super comfortable and easy to walk in ! If you’d like a pair for yourself, they are still available at the D&G online store in some sizes.

こちらは私の最新の靴です。素敵な婚約者からの誕生日プレゼントでした – ありがとう!!!ずっと前から欲しくて、ちょうど誕生日の時にセールになりました。店ではもう売り切れていたのでオンラインショップで買いました。今日はとうとう初めてはきました – この靴は絶対に救出しなければならなかった 🙂 14,5cmでヒールがかなり高いですが、本当にあるきやすいです!これで欲しくなってしまったら、まだオンラインショップで何足が残っています。

Then sew on a hairpin or safety pin – finished! These can also be used as a pin to decorate simple T-shirts.

Patent Wedges – D&G and Flag-J

Finally these gorgeous wedges by D&G are available on their online shop! I’ve seen them in the shop recently and wanted to show them to you since then. To me, they’re a perfect summer shoe. They’re available in purple and green:

Sadly, at 445 € they’re quite expensive! If you want them anyway, click here.

If you’re looking for a similar shoe with a more budget-friendly price, these wedges by Flag-J are a perfect alternative. They also have patent uppers and a very similar woven heel to the D&G shoes, but the shape is different enough not to be called a copy. Apart from pink and green, they’re also available in red, beige and black. And for the price of 7,110 Yen (approx. 62€) they’re definitely budget friendly! Click here to buy a pair at Flag-J’s online store.

Shoe Challenge No.27

Esperanza cut-out WedgeShoes: Esperanza
Worn with: Dress by H&M, clutch by Angel Jackson

I’ve been looking forward to wearing these shoes for months now, and finally it was warm enough! I combined them with this dress by H&M for a friend’s birthday party – a much more colourful look than I usually wear. Even though they’re pretty high, they’re comfortable and it was easy to dance in them for a long time…

I adore these wedges! Here’s a close-up:

I also made another rollcake (and more desserts, but they’re not as photogenic) this time with a flower pattern…..I’m totally hooked on these rollcakes, but I do want to try something else again too. I wish I had more time for baking, but right now my graduation has to be my no.1 prority!

The Architectural Cut-Out Wedge: Esperanza vs. Pool Side

Remember the architectural cut-out wedge I wrote about a while ago? Well, it’s finally available online! Also, there’s two brands using the same awesome heel, but each has paired it with a different upper: While I would describe Esperanza’s version as girlie, Pool Side’s version has more of a tougher feel to it – I guess both would be equally eye-catching! Which one would you prefer? I will be wearing my beloved pink pair by Esperanza for a shoe challenge soon! (when it’s finally warm enough outside..)

Esperanza Architectural Cut Out WedgeThe Esperanza wedges come in the five colours pictured above and are available for ¥10,290 (approx.86€) at the 109 webstore.

Pool Side Architectural Cut Out WedgeThis is Pool Side’s version, which is available in four colours for ¥9,800 (approx. 82€), also in the 109 webstore.

Shoe Challenge No.21

Today it was sunny but still really cold, so outfit-wise I wasn’t in the mood for dressing up, but I still decided to save another pair of good-weather shoes! I met friends for coffee and we watched the movie Limitless, which was interesting.

Esperanza WedgesShoes: Esperanza
Worn with: Cardigan by Chille AnaP, top by H&M, jeans by Seven, bag by Armani.

Today’s shoes are by the Japanese brand Esperanza (as so many of my favourite pairs!), and they were love at first sight for me! I love everything about them: the crazy heel-shape, the big houndstooth print and the detachable bow. Nevertheless, when I first saw them I wasn’t feeling like spending money and stupidly decided to wait…..of course once I decided to buy them they were already sold out in the shop and I had to search a lot to find another pair! Luckily I found my “happy end” when I discovered a pair in Ikebukuro’s Esperanza shop 🙂

Esperanza Wedges

The only bad thing about them is that the uppers are made of fabric (there’s nothing worse than white fabric on a shoe!!), so I always have to listen closely to the weather report before wearing them …well, at least they’re comfortable!

Last but not least, another rollcake, which I made a few days ago. This time I thought up my own decorating pattern:

Flower embellished Wedges and Ballerinas by H&M

H&M flower embellished WedgesHow adorable are these flower embellished wedges by H&M? I personally prefer the light pink colour as they look more like summer but as the uppers are fabric the black ones could be more practical. Lately, I’m totally into wedges – they make walking on cobblestones so much easier! If you like the cute flowers but not the heels, these were also used on these sweet peeptoe ballerinas, which come in the same colour options.

H&M flower embellished BallerinasBoth  the wedges which retail for 39,95€ and  the ballerinas which cost 14,95€ are available at the H&M online store.

Which ones would you choose?
