The Ophelia ones are OK I think, although two things bug me; the tie around the ankle and the leopard print isn't that great. I quite like the neon piping on it though.

The other pair, the Gretas, I really really dislike. Everything just looks out of proportion.

They've got these wedges in at Net-a-Porter, keep looking at them even though they're so not my style. They strike me as the kind of thing Lily Allen would wear. Can't believe how tall designer shoes are nowadays.

Still not sure about Charlotte Olympia's style, I think they're pretty clumpy and ungainly but I can see the draw - like I say, I'm strangely attracted to those wedges even though I'd never buy/wear them.

rosalynn,
they are BEAUTIFUL on the foot and not clumpy at all.
charlotte was wearing them herself in the showroom and she looked great in them!

I can definitely see the draw of them. I love wedges myself, they're a total guilty pleasure of mine. I have to admit I keep looking at them on Net-a-Porter, maybe I'll crumble and get them, I dunno.

I find it really difficult to guage proportions of shoes/platforms like this, and I'd find it even harder to know what to pair them with without them totally swamping my look and making me look like a Subbuteo player as I'm so petite. I'd love to see some modelling pics of them but couldn't find any on Google.

Did you manage to get any modeling pics of you in yours?

Sorry for a waffley post!

I'm a 37 so I think they still have my size. And do you know what, I'm on the verge of throwing caution to the wind and getting them. I keep going back to them, I think I'm strangely attracted to them... How the hell did that happen?!

Like I say, I've always seen the draw, but I've just been convincing myself they're not my style. My sister loves them though, she has the same size feet as me, so maybe if I don't get on with them I'll sell them on.

leyla m. what is your experience with Charlotte Olympia's fit? Are they TTS?

uniq,
the maxine is still being made but this season with a zipper instead of laces.
maybe the colour you like will soon pop up at theoutnet.com?

in terms of size i am true to size in her shoes. except for the DOLLY which i had to take half size down. not sure about the black wedge??? it is a super high platform so maybe 1 size makes sense?

Thanks

I've posted in the yay/nay thread, nays are winning, but I would have nayed it before lunchtime today, it's only that I keep looking back here that I'm thinking maybe I love them. My sister is a bit more enthusiastic about them, it wouldn't surprise me if she bought them instead!

Yeah, black tights were the first thing that came to mind with me too. I'm gonna sleep on it, but I'm erring towards getting them. Thanks!

I've just ordered them. Pretty much every size has sold out now, so I didn't want to hold off and regret it. They were my first thought when I woke up this morning so I guess it was just meant to be!
