Up and coming Plus Size brand Curvissa recently contacted me and asked if I would be interested in letting them have a guest post spot on my blog. At first I have to admit, as some of you may know, I was a little reluctant as I wasn’t particular fond of having the pre-written guest content on my blog. But after some thinking my decision has been to put it up. Why? Well because for this reason, I am always, always happy to see new plus size retailers come out onto the market and, if I can help in some way to to raise the profile in order to give us girlies some more choice than whats the harm in a little post?! Lovely fellow bloggers Lacara and Lauren were lucky enough to have been invited along to the Curvissa launch (not a bit bitter at all *cough cough* hehe) and they have some great pics and interviews with Josie Gibson, 2010 winner of reality T.V show Big Brother, go check out there views on the new brand too! Also the post is about shoes, which I’m not gonna lie, I love, they never let me down, shoes ALWAYS fit!
Anyway, over to Curvissa….
At the office
Work shoes are all about striking the balance between comfort and style and, during those long, hot summer days, you also need to give your feet some room to breathe.
These adjustable strap sandals by Esprit tick all of these boxes. Perfect with a pair of boot cut trousers and a chic shirt, they provide an extra leg lift, without the toe torture.
For a super stylish look while you’re away, opt for a pair of on-trend wedges in neutral shades of brown, beige and tan. Wedges are often more comfortable than thin heels, so they should see you through from day to night comfortably.
These strappy wedge sandals by Bullboxer would look great with a maxi dress or floral summer number and add the perfect amount of casual and glamour to any outfit.
Glamorous nights out are the perfect opportunity to make a real statement with your shoes. Work summer style into your night time wardrobe with these nautical inspired platforms by Buffalo.
The blue and white stripe detail contrasts gorgeously with the red sole, and the peep toe creates the perfect finishing touch. Team with block colours of red, white or blue (but not all three) to work the nautical look flawlessly.
For those tiring shopping sprees, give your feet a well earned break from towering heels in a pair of cute ballerina pumps. A fashion favourite, these shoes have seen a recent boost thanks to the ballet micro trend that surfaced at the beginning of the season.
When the rain stops for long enough to get your friends over for a BBQ, adorn your feet in a pair of glitzy gladiator sandals. Gone are the days when sandals were confined to beachwear, these fashionable shoes can be dressed up or down and worn to a variety of social events.
With an embroidered appliqué detail and colourful multi straps, these sandals are perfect for BBQ’s and gatherings. Wear them with jeans for daytime casual or with an on-trend playsuit for after party drinks.
