Betsey Johnson Sparkles Like a Cupcake

No, they aren’t a new purchase of mine, however they are the BEST shoe purchase I have made to date. These are a gorgeous pair of Betsey Johnson heels called “Layla”. I had been on a three week holiday to America and all i wanted to bring home was a pair of designer shoes which were different and outrageous. The minute i saw these i knew they were the perfect shoe to bring home and remember my trip. They remind me of little cupcakes as they are fluffy, sparkly and bright pink. Not to mention, they brought back memories or playing with Barbie dolls as a child – i always wanted her wardrobe, and i think these shoes are very fitting for Barbie.

I absolutely adore these shoes, but i have only ever had the courage to wear them once. The heel is about 2 inches high and as thin as chopsticks. They aren’t easy to walk in and the one time i did wear them, proved these shoes were not meant to be walked in, just admired in the box and the occasional dress-up around the house. I’m sure many of you can relate to falling in love with a pair of shoes which you can’t manage to walk in.

Fafi for Adidas

Fafi is a well-known graffiti artist from France and is one of my favourite street artist of all time. I absolutely love her style and was completely beside myself when i found a pair of her Adidas shoes in Melbourne. I have been trying to get my hands on some of her clothing and shoe range she has previously designed for Adidas but have never been successful until now. There are four different shoes available, but i thought these would get some great wear being black and white and very subtle with the design. The best part of getting these shoes was that they were 40% off at the Adidas store and set me back $108. To my amazement not many people know who she is and therefore, there were plenty of sizes left for the post Christmas sales.

You can check more of her Adidas range here. To find out more about Fafi and her work, you can check out her blog here.
