Ambassador Who?

If you are a long term reader or even new to Curves To Kill you'll know that I have a huge love and addiction to shoes. I'm nutty for them and love collecting, styling and strutting in all different styles and colours.

So this year I'm super excited to announce my partnership with the greatest shoe store in Australia, hell lets face it, the world - Shoe Me Gorgeous! I'll be working with them through 2017 promoting, reviewing and modelling my pins as much as humanly possible. 

Not only are the an Australian based company but they have the best prices for brands I love like Pleaser, Demonia, Pin Up Couture and many many more. The selection is huge, the sizes perfect (with each review I'll be making sure I tell you my Australian size and what I wear in each brand) and super fast shipping.
 
Shoe Me Gorgeous have also introduced a awesome new loyalty membership program that gives you discounts and points/steps while you shop! I'll write a full post on this very soon and dish all the details but they are brilliant and you will definitely want to join. 

But lets get down to my love and my obsession and get this review going!

 

I've never found a medium sized heel I can wear to work all day and feel great in. After years of wearing huge platforms I find the smaller heel a little more work but now that I've discovered the Smitten heel from Pinup Couture I'm never going back to anything else for all day heels. 


Smitten is an adorable 40's style mary jane with a 4 inch heel and cut out design on the toe. They are sleek, sweet and a perfect pinup style for work or play. The closed toe makes the them transeasonal and they look great with or without stocks. 

I wear an Australian size 10 but I always order a US11 in this specific brand as they fit one size smaller for me. What makes this specific brand above many others I've worn to work or out for a night is the padding. 



You see that adorable bright red heart inside the pump? Well that's the secret! It's an extra level of cushioning and acts like party feet or an insole, plus it looks so cute.



Avaliable in red, forest green, dark brown and black and once you own one pair you'll need them all.

 

Now for a completely new style for me but sticking with the 40's style design. The Bettie is amazing, bold and features a 4 1/2" heel, 1"  Platform and a closed to cut out design. The extra inch and platform makes for more of a going out shoe apposed to a work shoe but it's all personal preference. 

The fit is a little spot on in the size US11 and these like the Smitten can be worn all year. I usually don't wear such a perfectly vintage style but I wanted to try something new and they have inspired me to try different colour options and more 40's style frocks.


Now these are available in the colour shown above and a very similar colour mixture with the addition of forest green included. I personally love the warm brown tones and how they work from Autumn to Spring. 



As these are Pin Up Couture they have that extra heart of comfort you will love the feel of both of these styles.
