For those of you who read my post last week on my beautiful dress from Chi Chi London, you would have seen my custom made shoes from Customised Bling Things. Reminiscent of Cinderella glass slippers, they were made to order by Victoria, the creative director of Customised Bling Things. After seeing my Cinderella shoes, I knew that Victoria would be staying in my life for upcoming events and parties where I need my shoes to do the talking. This time the brief was simple. A pair of wedges, carnival themed with blues being the main colour scheme and ready for the OMG! sales event at work.
My parcel arrived the day after Victoria had posted it out, carefully wrapped and covered in fragile tape. I can’t tell you how excited I was to open the box. Although I had seen photographs of the finished product, the real version is just amazing to see. Wrapped up securely in tissue and customised ribbon, which I think is such a beautiful touch, my shoes were careful protected in bubble wrap. I was overwhelmed when I opened the box. Blue and green, crystals, glitter, feathers. They were amazing. I’m going to have to let the pictures do the talking on this occasion.
As all shoes from Customised Bling Things are custom made to order, the prices can vary from £65 if you provide your own shoes, £85 without your own shoes and potentially more depending on the design. Victoria is great to work with especially if you have a specific idea in mind and she updates you periodically throughout the design period. I couldn’t imagine not having the luxury of having custom made shoes any more. For something so simple, it makes a huge difference to an outfit or event and the possibilities are endless. Imagine having one of a kind wedding shoes or just like me, carnival shoes.
