Splurge Friday – Jimmy Choo sale! Classic or statement?

Perhaps I’m just going stir crazy from revision but today I found myself browsing an online sale retailler of Jimmy Choos (yes postage to the UK is free whilst prices are in bargain dollars!). I think it’s all legit (although check out their ‘Customer Service’ page for some amusement). Whenever I’m considering a (comparatively) big purchase like this I always wonder whether it’s better to go for a piece which is classic and will go with every outfit and not go out of fashion, or….. if you should pick something that is unusual and cannot be found on the high street – the kind of thing that will make people stare and ask “wow, where is that from?!”

People generally say classic is better, but I tend to wonder “couldn’t I just buy plain black court shoes from New Look though? Here are some of my ‘classic’ vs ‘statement’ choices (the images link to the page where you can buy them for around £100). I’ve tried to order them in increasing crazy-ness – would love your thoughts!

    I’d go with something that stands out! Something that when others see it, they’ll ask – who is the designer! I often feel like the more extravagant the shoe, the more attention it’ll draw! Good luck with your choice!

      Yeah I think I agree – go for special!
      Not sure how legit this website is though…. but still tempted even if they’re fake! haha
