Saint Laurent red bow embellished sandals

These shoes  had me at the words, “bow embellished”. Seriously, if a brand ever decided it wanted to take all my money, all they’d have to do would be to stick some over-sized bows on their shoes, and I can almost guarantee I’d want to buy them. Of course, a bright red upper doesn’t hurt, either: I’ve slowly been purging most of the very bright colours from my shoe shelves, because I realised I just wasn’t wearing them all, but red is the one colour that I’ll always find room for: I actually think I wear red shoes almost as often as I wear black ones (Although probably not quite as much as I wear nude or gold ones: everyone has their favourite!), so while I’m not really sure why I like them more than other colours (Strangely enough, I hardly ever wear red at all, other than on my feet…), I do know they’re pretty much a “neutral” as far as I’m concerned.

These Saint Laurent sandals make a particularly effective use of the bright red colour on that shiny red upper. It guaranteed that these would stand out, regardless of what the rest of the shoe looked like, but luckily, in this case, the shoe is almost equally interesting. the oversized bow stretches all the way across the toe, and is knotted in the centre, creating a bit of a vintage-inspired look. The sandal is finished off with a thin ankle strap, and a high stiletto heel, and although it would be tempting to reserve them for special occasions, especially given the price tag, Net-a-Porter have shown these styled with a pair of black leather trousers and a stripe top, which looks really good, too. Is there anything that DOESN’T look good with a stripe top and red shoes, though? Because, if so, I’m not sure I even want to know what it is…
