If you’ve read this blog a while or follow me on any of my social media channels, you’ll know that 2014, for me, has been The Year Of The Weddings, with a succession of them starting from the middle of March.
Now, I love a wedding. Everyone gathered together, seeing two people you care about having the best day of their life, the laughter, the food, the drink and the dancing. I honestly think weddings are one of the best days out a person can have – they turn me into such a little bubble of joy that I think I might burst.
However, there is one thing about a wedding that I – and a lot of other women, I think – fear… standing up a lot.
Obviously, when you go to a wedding you want to dress your best for the happy couple, but a nice outfit means nice shoes and, for me, that always involves a heel. And, being 5’2, my heels are always 4-inches and above.
Step in Rainbow Club UK.
I’ve written before about my beautiful blue Rainbow Club UK shoes which are so comfortable it feels like I’m wearing slippers, so when the lovely people at Elegant Steps sent me a pair of black heels from the Rainbow Club UK range, I was worried that perhaps I’d set my hopes too high. Were my blue shoes an uber comfy one-off? Was I going to don these expecting to feel like Cinderella but instead feel like an Ugly Sister with her ‘plates of meat’ jammed into someone else’s foot candy?
Silly me. I should never have doubted them for a moment.
They’re so comfy, I’ve worn them repeatedly and for every event where I’ve known I’m going to be on my feet all day, and they have been an absolute dream, allowing me to carry on dancing until I’ve either had to go home for the night or have been told to stop busting out my (choreographically correct) moves.
But wait right there, these aren’t just easy on the tootsies, they’re not too shabby when it comes to looks either – can we just take a moment to appreciate how beautiful they are? With a subtle crossover detail in the satin finish, they manage to be understated enough to wear with a whole range of different outfits, but when you take the time to look at them, they hold their own in the style stakes.
However, if comfort and style aren’t quite ticking all the boxes for you, perhaps the deal clincher will be when I tell you that when you purchase from Rainbow Club UK (or via one of their selling agents like Elegant Steps) you can browse all their different shoe styles then choose from the colour chart and they’ll create your perfect pair for you with their personalised dyeing service. So, no matter what your event, you can more or less dream up a pair of shoes in your head and Elegant Steps and Rainbow Club UK will be able to make your vision a reality.
Thank you to Elegant Steps for my new go-to shoes and for your fantastic customer service, I’ll definitely be back to purchase from you when I next need something for a special occasion!
