This season I seem to have gone a little gaga for Lulu Hun shoes! Having previously seen this season’s offerings at London Edge in February, I knew I would need so many new pairs in my life! With bright, summery colours, fiesta feels and amazing metallics, there’s something to carry everyone through from day to night with a range of heel heights, including flats, wedges, block and stiletto heels.
I’m a bit of an Imelda Marcos at heart and have hundreds of shoes, but I can never resist a retro feel, summer fun or cute heel! I already own a few Lulu Hun shoes and found the sizing to vary previously (the flats were either a little large or true to size, and the heels came up big), but this season the sizing is very much improved and I’ve found them all a perfect fit (I’m a size 4/37, bought a 4/37 and they fit perfectly).
So, on to my hoard! Three pairs were gifts for my birthday (lucky me! more about that next time) and the silver Veronica heels are an amazing competition win from Lulu Hun (keep an eye on their facebook page for competitions/updates).
These are even more delightful than I’d hoped and so comfortable! I was very lucky to be one of the five winners during a competition to win your favourite pair. I chose the Veronica as I love the metallics (they also come in gold), the t-bar style and the versatility with the chunkier 8cm heel – perfect for dancing! Silver goes with so many things, so they’re a really good addition to my collection. They do have a rather odd fastening (unique to some of the Lulu Hun range), which has a faux buckle and hook attachment to fasten. This threw me a little on previous sandals I’d tried with it on and though I prefer a normal buckle closure on shoes, with the Veronica it works great and my foot feels well supported. I would very much like to snap these up in the gold too as they’re so nice!
The next pair are the gorgeous, sunshine yellow, Juliette, heels. No longer in stock in the yellow as I think I bagged the last pair online, but there were a few pairs in store last time I visited and the pink is still available in limited sizes. These are so summery and a perfect 3 1/4 inch heel for a classic look. I can’t wait to wear these with so many different colours to brighten up my outfits, I’m thinking navy currently which teams well with yellow. I’m keeping everything crossed this style returns next year in other colours!
Now the fun begins! How amazing are these Lorena heels?! Available in black or green suede (obviously I needed both), they feature the sweetest ric-rac design and a 4 inch heel with a platform. They fasten with a normal buckle and the wider heel gives great support. They are the most awesome shoes! I’ve paired them with othe ric-rac and pom pom items and they really add a fun edge to outfits (you’ll see them a lot in future posts!).
One last word about the packaging, which includes a very cute vintage lady on the front of a retro styled box. There are extra heel tips included, cardboard guards to protect the sides and a plastic support with branded tissue wrapped around them to keep them safe. I’m a big fan of this brand, which offers a great variety of fun and practical styles. The full range is available in sizes 3-8 (UK) from Collectif.
