The Slingback Balenciaga

As the days are getting warmer, the layers become thinner and shoes become slingbacks! No doubt you must have noticed the latest trend, as these Topshop beauties have been all over Instagram lately. I instantly fell in love, as they looked so feminine and elegant, making your foot look petite. But before I got my card out of the wallet and purchased yet another pair of black shoes, I remembered about my old pair of Balenciaga heels that I have not worn in forever….

They were absolutely perfect! Why have I kept them in the closet for so long?! The sling back, the ankle wrap, the thin heel, all right on trend (who says you can wear “last season”). Not to mention gold detailing goes with all of my accessories and hardware on most of my jackets. I have fallen in love with them all over again, and naturally I planned the entire outfit around the shoes. Monochrome felt so easy and I knew it wouldn’t take away from the shoes. So there you have it, another very simple outfit that changes dramatically as soon as the shoe goes on! The power of accessorising…
