I mentioned in a previous post that I recently purchased some shoes from DSW. I needed to have more options to work with for my Style Practice blog posts. The shoes I purchased are pretty cheap. They retail for between $40 – $60. I purchased them at clearance prices.
Among the 5 pairs of shoes I purchased were these patent cobalt blue high heel pumps from Qupid. These are the Qupid Penelope pumps. I purchased a pair in green as well but I’ll feature those in another post.
Styling my Qupid Penelope blue high heel pumps
I wanted to style my blue high heel pumps with something yellow and blue or white and blue, or yellow white and blue; but I had nothing to work with in my closet. So I had to settle for black and blue.
It would have been ideal to have some nicer pieces of clothing to work with. Like the blue Armani blouse, the black T By Alexander Wang stand up collar blazer and the black Ted Baker Pony Skin pencil skirt shown above. Not to mention the Chanel black and blue lambskin leather flap bag. But I guess if I had such high end brands in my closet I would be writing a feature about a pair of blue high heel pumps that cost me a few hundred dollars. To style my $25 pumps, all I could find in my closet was the black leather skirt I picked up from the Goodwill on my last Goodwill shopping expedition. I paired that with a blue New York & company top, another Goodwill purchase. And with that I wore a black fitted blazer purchased via Amazon.com a few years ago.
As awesome as it would have been to actually visit London and pose in front of a red telephone booth, I took the photos in my living room. My visit to London was virtual and achieved using photoshop and images from pixabay.com
The Qupid Penelope blue high heel pumps
The Qupid Penelope blue high heel pumps are a decent enough pair of pumps. They retail for $44. I purchased mine for $25 clearance price. The pumps deliver on patent shine and cobalt blue; but you’ll probably need to be a little more careful in how you handle them. I was handling mine a little roughly as I tried to position them this way and that way to get some good pictures. The result is that they bruised a bit.
As I have mentioned repeatedly I am not skilled at walking in high heels. These were no different from any other pair of 5.5 inch heels I’ve tried to walk in. I can’t walk in them; but I have to say, my legs weren’t buckling quite as much in these. The pumps fit nicely. I wear an 8.5 and bought an 8.5. The fit was perfect.
