Mecha Kawaii Shoes!

I got quite a few people asking about these LYDC platform wedge shoes when I instagrammed and tweeted about them yesterday! They’re pretty glorious aren’t they? And I’m sure they’ll be included in a few outfit posts in the near future, but for now they can have a dedicated blog post especially for their beautiful selves. I bought them off eBay last week and they arrived yesterday, they are even better in real life than pictures can justify! Although I’m sure some may find them a little sickly (I usually would detest this kind of thing) somehow the tacky shiny finish, with the candy colours and cute bow all come together to form a mecha kawaii (that means ‘omgggg so cute!!!! in Japanese according to a Japanese girl I used to live with) pair of shoes.

What I enjoy most about these shoes is the cut out wedge style of heel. I’ve been after this particular heel for a while now. I’m not sure where I first spotted it or what shoes it was on, but I knew this heel and I were meant to be. I know a lot of people ‘frown upon’ peep toe shoes and tights, but I personally love this look. I like the idea of going against the grain and wearing things like sandals and cut out shoes with black tights just for the contrast, as I do love a bit of contrast. They’re really quite comfortable too. I do find getting shoes a pain as I have slightly wide feet, but these didn’t squeeze or hurt one bit as I frolicked around my flat in them for a few hours. 

I’m not sure where I’m going to actually wear these mind, I don’t *do* heels in general, especially not in the day, but I may phase them in to my life as I simply can’t keep these in my wardrobe. You can pick them up off eBay for around £20 including p+p and the seller I bought them off was UK based. I really wanted the green coloured ones but they were out of stock, but now I’ve got these I think I made the right choice!

OMG I LOVE THEM, I was looking for a pair EXACTLY like this for a wedding I went to last year, but nada! I got something kinda similar but not right. They're like dream Jeffrey Campbell shoes!
