Privet! I may be addicted to shoes…at the moment, but with all of the recent sales I doubt many could resist the temptation to hoard all the shoes in existence. I must admit that I never paid much attention to Phillip Lim’s designer wear, until my new 3.1 Phillip Lim heels came home with me. These kitten heels have an understated, youthful elegance that seem to work with both casual and dressier outfits; Which I found out after trying on the shoes with various items in my closet i.e shift dresses, my favourite pair of Roots grey leggings, pencil skirts, and a certain H&M romper! And these shoes seems to be so comfortable, and did I mention they were on sale! Anyways I am adoring these pumps so much at the moment that I’ve decided to review them:
1). Weight: I love how light weight the shoe is, I can never stress how important it is to have a shoe that is light in weight, especially if it is to be strapped on your foot for hours. These 3.1 Phillip Lim Martini D’orsay kitten heels feel as light as a feather
2). Quality: Quality wise the heels are amazing, and are made of “Vero Cuoio” which means Real Leather! Expensive shoes (even ones you get on sale) should at least be made of leather, for leather can at least stretch and be more accommodating to ones feet.
3). Comfort: The heels are perfect for women with a wider foot. I happen to have a wider foot and I feel as if my toes are not crammed together, and the heels don’t even need to have that breaking in period. Plus the shoe does not rub on the back of the heel, the strap rests comfortably, and I doubt many will get a blister from wearing these kitten heels all day. Plus the heel itself is not high, and you can barely tell you’re in a heeled shoe. (They have a similar feel to Valentino’s rockstud kitten heels, tres comfy)
4). Appearance & heel style: The Martini D’orsay kitten heels have a classic style, being made out of black leather the shoe is versatile to be paired with either day or nightime outfits (casual or dressy). The strap has an interesting “pipe” look that adds an element of edge, and the back of the heel lets some skin peep through in an intriguing way. Plus the pointed toe exudes sexiness.
5). Ease of adjustment: Easy to put on and take off with the velcro strap, the shoes can be put on or taken off within seconds, no fumbling with straps!
6). Ground feel: When walking the heels feel pretty nice, and don’t feel slippery.
7). Price: Originally the shoes were $505, but if you get them on sale like I did, then they make a very affordable addition to anyones wardrobe. They are classic!
8). Micellaneous: Love that they came with the original box, and dust bag! Plus the shoe box has a magnet to keep it from opening.
9). These shoes will make you a fan of Phillip Lim!
10).Creasing: the only problem I see with these shoes is that they can crease which cna detract from their appearence, so take care of them!
End score 8/10
Kitten Heels: 3.1 Phillip Lim Martini D’orsay Kitten Heels in black leather, with pointed heels.
Hope you enjoyed the review 🙂
