There comes a time in a  girls life when the only answer to live's problems is new shoes. So damn right I got me new shoes. I'll start off buy saying don't rate Topshop heels, I have countless pairs of Topshop boots, which I adore wholeheartedly. BUT on the whole I find for the most part they are way too high an I find myself tottering around like I'm on stilts and towering over and potential mates. I decided to get these Topshop Wink shoes to replace my much loved River Island flatforms, which although I love them dearly, are just incredibly battered. They survived the Vice 10 Birthday party, holidays, numerous naughty nights out and having to walk across Clapham Common in the rain. They did me good but they have finally gone off to shoe heaven as the strap broke rendering them unwearable. Sigh. They were good'un's!

Topshop Wink's don't have a HUGE platform, they are smaller than other Topshop heel's but very average in terms of size. I like nothing more than a big chunky wedge, for some reason they make my legs feel all bambi-like and that I'm a 6ft leggy super model, rather than the chubby 5ft5-er I am in reality!  I'm super happy with them, even if they were the reason I spent most of this week with a black eye and a cracked face. I tripped wearing them at the weekend and ended up in A&E… not really selling them to you now am I guys? BUT there is a lot of love for them, and I can see them being my new go-to going out heels. Big love!

  20. These are beauts. I find wedges to be a bit hit and miss at times - I think that some of them can look horribly unflattering and make peoples~legs look chunkier than they actually are, but these are so nice. I think the secret is in the heel height - not too high, and the fact that the whole shoe is made from the same material. I will be having a look for these next time I~m in town!

  24. I need these in my life. I have so many black platforms but they are just the easiest way to get longer legs without falling all over the place. If it's any consolation I can't even walk properly in flat shoes. I hope you and your gorgeous face are feeling better now!

  36. when flatforms first came about i really wasn't that big of a fan. i thought they just looked clumpy and probably wouldn't suit me at all. however, i think i just needed to find the right pair and these could be the ones! they are gorgeous and seem just the right height for a casual night out. a lot of the time when i'm out with my friends i want to wear heels but not ones that will kill my feet. these, though, seem like the perfect alternative! definitely going to check these out in store! :) X
