AMBITIOUS

(Shirt, Cotton On. Skirt, Xenia. Shoes, UrbanOg. Ring, Lovisa.)

When I was 16 years old, I purchased my very first pair of heels (online, I might add) while I was visiting family in the States. Most girls start with baby steps; a small kitten heel or a chunkier heel. But me? I went for these 5inch stiletto booties with a hidden platform as my induction. Needless to say, walking in them was probably one of the biggest missions of my teenage life.

I recently pulled these shoes out of my wardrobe after moving back home for the summer, and to be honest, I'd totally forgotten about them while I was living in Auckland. I had also forgotten how awesome they are..! So I put together this quick look to have a change to strut around in them again.

  3. I love how you styled this look. The black and blue look so nice together! And you're definitely braver than me. I started out with two inch heels, and I thought those were so high, haha!

  9. Beautiful shoes! We're the same - I pretty much grew up wearing heels and went straight to the highest of the high. (I'm also very, very obsessed with your blouse - that colour looks absolutely amazing on you!!)

  10. My first heels... I got them when I was 15, and they were 6 inch stripper heels!
    My mother wast very pleased about my choice, but hey helped me to become more confident and maybe feminine, I used to believe I was Ugly and dressed like a boy so people wouldnt notice me.

    Anyways, your look is lovely! I adore that pleather skater skirt!
    Been looking for one for ages.

    Also you have a new follower (:

  11. Dam girl you were brave! I started small with a small wedge, to a demi wedge/heel and then full heels (I still haven't mastered sky heel heels yet *think weaponry*).

    It's it exciting finding old shoes/clothes? It's like getting them brand new hahaha. You look great ♥

    1. I'm not sure brave is the most appropriate word, naive perhaps..? Haha, thanks Seryna :) xx
