Actually, they are quite a dark navy.
I have been looking for a pair of flat navy shoes with a pointed toe. I knew that it would be a big ask and I had tried on a few pairs which generally had a very low-cut vamp and minimal support at the sides. Yesterday I went to Peter Sheppard shoe store in Brisbane and found these. They are absolutely perfect. Yes, they were expensive but I believe that they have been a worthwhile purchase and I look forward to wearing them with many different outfits over an extended period of time.
I plan to wear them to an event in a few weeks time with the dress I bought last week. Of course, I will be wearing nude stockings then but in the meantime, here is a ‘shoe selfie’.
Spending is a very personal decision but my strategy is to have a small number of quality pieces. I also choose to make or mend things that I can and save my hard-earned cash for items I cannot successfully make myself – such as shoes.
Tomorrow I will have a completely different post with a ‘make do and mend’ project.
