These Balenciaga satin pumps, what do you think about them? Are you feeling the crystals and beads embellishment?

Personally I am not feeling the elaborate crystals and beads embellishment on these magenta Balenciaga satin pumps. I have to say, I think it’s a little outlandish. Just too much for me. It looks like a growth rather than an adornment. But I will be the first to say I know nothing about ‘high style’. I’m sure that to a more sophisticated lady who is accustomed to the finer things in life, these embellished Balenciaga satin pumps are to die for gorgeous. And maybe if I saw them in person I would think so too. But just judging from the picture alone, I find that the crystals and bead embellishment is a little bit over-the-top. It takes up half the shoe and it’s not particularly artful looking. Kind of just looks like a clump of mess that grew on what might otherwise be a perfectly lovely pair of magenta Balenciaga satin pumps.

What are your thoughts? Do you like the embellishment on these Balenciaga satin pumps?

Where would a regular every day lady even where a pair of pumps like these? I guess to a wedding. But they are a little dressy to be worn to a wedding if you’re the guest. And unless you’re a bride who likes to do things differently, and you’re getting married in a pink dress, or you otherwise fancy wearing your magenta Balenciaga satin pumps with your white wedding dress, these wouldn’t fit. Although, as I imagine it, these could look interesting with a white wedding dress with hints of magenta, like maybe a magenta satin waist sash.

So yay or nay? Would you wear these crystals and beads embellished magenta Balenciaga satin pumps?

The pumps, by the way, come with a 1,390 USD price tag. If you like them, you can find them at They also have it in black satin. And they have a slingback version in red, which I think look even more silly than the pumps.

Hello, I'm Adela Lewis aka singer songwriter Adelamonica. I am the founder, creative director, editor in chief and main writer for First let me say, I myself cringe at some of the things I've written on this blog. It is completely embarrassing to realize how miserably I've been failing to hide the fact that I lack sophistication, and often times lack enlightenment. I wish I had never written half the things I've written on here, but I did write them. To be clear, I am just a regular person who enjoys writing. I refer to myself as "editor in chief" and "creative director" because, owning the blog as I do and being the one who creates and edits the content (except for content submitted by guest contributors), I feel that I have the freedom to do so. But I am not an editor and there is currently no staff that I oversee. Via this blog, I am contributing my personal thoughts and ideas and beliefs to everyday topics of discussion--at times topics on which I am not particularly well informed, but about which I might still have a point of view--much like most other people on the planet . The things I write should be regarded in the light of diary/journal style and essay style writings, reviews and reports exploring the topics I attempt to discuss.
