While perusing a few online shoe web sites on my laptop, my mouse seems to have a mind of it’s own. It easily finds the links to high heels and specifically “pumps”. I don’t know about you, but I never feel complete until I slip on a pair of heels and refresh my lipstick. As I said in another article, regardless of what I am dressed in, I always pull out a pair of stilettos and have a look in the mirror. Yes, they aren’t appropriate for all outfits but you don’t need an excuse to pop them on and have some fun. Checking through various pages, I click from heel to heel, seeing if my size is available and how much they cost. I try to imagine what dress they may enhance, simply compliment or say “here I am girls!” I already have so many black heels in various heights and textures. Don’t get me wrong, black heels are often an easy go to, complimenting so many different outfits. But I would really like to try selecting something a little different, maybe some pumps that could be stars on their own accord, a pair of true “statement heels”. Paging along, my mouse lands on a pair of silver rhinestone pumps. My eyes focus on these shimmering darlings as they appear to sparkle on screen. They definitely have captured my attention, and would fit the bill for “statement heels”. I click on the description of these heels and eagerly savor every word. Words like “elegant”, “sophisticated”, “brilliant” and “glistening” connote an image of theses pumps and what it would feel like to slip them on. Sheer heaven! A night out wearing theses dream pumps would draw looks of admiration from party attendees as I sashay the night away. These would definitely make a feminine style statement. Let’s see if my size is available? 8 1/2, yes, heel height 100 mm, about 4 inches. I would be able to stand and chat with other guests in comfort and not feel the need to sit after 10 minutes. I find any stilettoe heel over 4 inches in height has a corresponding standing limitation. For a 5 inch or 120 mm heel, I respectfully give it 10 minutes before you say to your plus one, “let’s have a seat”. Contemplating the cost, I cross my manicured fingers and hope they are on sale. I adhere to the saying “always buy the heels, you are worth it”. With my decision made, I use PayPal to conclude the sale and my heart skips a beat with the final click of the mouse. Now that the pumps are selected, I consider the event or activity and apparel in how I would want to show off these new ”darlings”. For a classic look, the best outcome is to best to match your dress to the pumps. This ensures that your pumps, even though they are stars on their own, will not steal the show from the rest of your outfit. Also try to accessorize with similar jewelry to complete the look. If you pick a neutral palate tone do so from top to bottom and this will draw the eye down to your pumps. You can consider prints for your blouse, but make sure it blends with the color palette. If you are planning on a casual day out, consider a denim skirt or shorts and a fun tee shirt, a shoulder bag, go a little lighter on the bling with the accessories, this allows the sparkle of your heels take the stage. To be more dramatic, try darker bold colours, like black, plums or deep red and orange. Don’t go to light tones in these colours, the point is make your silver rhinestone pumps pop, you want them to be a standout with this combination. I found this review of apparel to consider to wear with silver rhinestone pumps and I’ve attached it for you to read.
