D'orsay makes a comeback

The classic d'orsay shoes (pro-nounced door-say) have made a comeback on this year's catwalk. It seems designers looked back to the 1920's for inspiration when it came to designing for their 2013 spring/summer  and autumn/winter shoe collection. They were featured on many of the catwalks during fashion week and the good thing about them is,  they come in different heel heights, high heels, mid heels and also in flats which is quite good really. It means there is something to suit the different heel preferences of shoppers. 

I quite like them all, the high-heels such as the ones from Oscar Tiye and Zara are perfect for trips to the bar with friends or equally for dinner dates. Whilst the mid heels and flats are more suited for every day wear.

As always thank the good Lord for the high street because it means for those of us, including myself, who cannot afford to fork out hundreds of pounds for a pair shoes we are not left out in the cold. We too can also enjoy wearing these designs on our feet.

I have to say that the d'orsay inspired shoes are a personal favourite of mine and as it happens I have already snagged up two different pairs from Zara's 2013 spring summer shoe collection and I am itching to get a few more to add to my shoe collection. There's something about the way that the sides of the shoe are exposed to show the arch of your feet that I find desirable and love about the d'orsay shoes. Its very feminine with an elegant feel to it.
