Koi Couture Heels From Online Avenue: So In Love With These Shoes!

Hello! So today's post is my first proper fashion post in quite a while, I hope to be doing more of them in the near future. I've neglected this part of my blog for a little while now so it's nice to get back into the swing of things. Anyway, everyone who knows me will be quite aware that I'm not really a shoe person, I'm more likely to spend my pay on a handbag. I'm actually known for spending daft amounts of money on bags, I will say though, when I saw the samples available for the Online Avenue campaign on EtailPR, I fell in L-O-V-E *sings Love Me Like You by Little Mix in head* with these shoes. They make me feel like I should be strutting around in a girl band when I wear these, they may actually be my favourite shoes now. I love the lace up detail but one thing that I appreciate about these shoes is the fact that there's a zip on the back by the heel to get them off and on. 

So, to summarise, gorgeous shoes that are also practical. Saying that, I will need to walk about in them a bit to get used to the heels. It shouldn't take too long to get used to them, it took me a few days to get used to some of my chunkier heels.

Despite the size of my feet, a size seven, I feel like these shoes make them look dainty and pretty which is weird because I hate my feet. It's also quite surprising how comfortable they are, they're an exact fit and other than the fact that I'm not used to them, I really can't fault these shoes on comfort. I was surprised they were so comfy and the fact that I could actually walk in them surprised me even more, I'm not usually that great at walking in heels like these so that's a major bonus!

I like how they are so easy to style, too. I can't wait to have a night out in these, though, they could be worn for the office too if I really wanted to make an effort. I try to stick to more sensible footwear at work as I make a lot of tea and coffee, one clumsy action and I'll be covered in boiling water - that wouldn't be ideal! I may be convinced to wear them for the meal we're going to have at work, that's if it isn't snowing by then!

The look can be transformed with colour nail varnish as you can give off a gothic vibe with darker polish but you can go down the neutral/nude route with pinks if you would prefer, due to their fairly plain design they are great for putting together outfits based on personal style. I love the vampy purple shade that I wore with them when I tried them on, it's a more seasonal look.

Well, thanks for reading. I've enjoyed writing about these shoes from Online Avenue, I hope you've enjoyed reading it! Let me know what you think of them in the comments, until next time - BYE!
