Poppy shoes by Isabel Marant . Re-issued for Spring 2011
My fascination with the 'Little Bow Pump' started back in the Autumn of 2009 when Balmain showed their sparkly mid heel court shoe on the catwalk. A year later Isabel Marant showcased her Poppy Bow pumps and they were an instant sell-out as soon as they hit the stores in 2010. Since then Marant has re-issued the style for this spring and I am still obsessesed. If you, like me are, tired of the too high and fierce still styles so popular this season then this is the perfect little shoe for you this spring. A kitten or mid-heel delicate pump topped off with a neat bow detail will see you through from day to night without even so much of a back ache or foot arch pain. Girly but still smart - this shoe can get plenty of miles out of your wardrobe. Wear with skinny turn-ups to show of a slim ankle or with short shorts for a chic not slutty look and obviously fantastic with calf length or shorter dresses and skirts. For those of you who still fancy rocking it a tad fierce should check out Louboutin's black studded kitten heel.
