Today is a pretty exciting day in the fashion blogging world and a super awesome one for the blogging world too, as shoe retailer Deichmann has teamed up with fashion blogger Caroline Blomst (you may know her from Caroline’s Mode) to design a gorgeous 7 piece collection. Not only is it amazing that a world renowned brand like Deichmann has chosen a fashion blogger to collaborate with over a celebrity endorsement, but it’s also so refreshing to see the kind of opportunities that are out there and how influential blogging has become.
I was lucky enough to give a few of the styles a whirl before the launch, and can safely say these are high up on my wish list! Every single pair I tried, whether casual flats or killer stiletto heels, was comfy and so wearable. Here’s just a selection of some of my favourite styles from this brilliant collaboration:
How gorgeous?! What I loved most when I first saw the range was the variety of styles and shapes. I’m a girl who loves nothing more than slipping in to a pair of my favourite heels and heading out for dinner and drinks, but give me a pair of comfy trainers and I’ll be just as happy. I also really liked the different prints; cute and colourful pixels, monochrome aztec and almost gothic floral lace – something to suit any mood and add a splash of fun to most outfits!
Now, as I said, I was lucky enough to test drive some samples prior to today’s launch (shoe lover’s dream, I think you will agree!) but rather than incorporate them in to the usual outfit shots, I wanted to do something a little out of my comfort zone and something that would give the shoes the spotlight, because my goodness they deserve it! So, here goes – my attempt at a little look book style video that I am pretty proud of right now, even if I do say so myself…
I think if I had to pick a favourite I would choose the lace detail ankle boots, which I honestly didn’t think I would. I liked them from the off when I first saw the picture, but they weren’t a particularly ‘me’ shoe, however after a quick try on at home I was completely sold. They are just the right balance of fun, sophisticated and sexy which makes them perfect for day to night outfits. I’m also a big fan of the pixel print trainers as they are so cute and colourful. They’d make the perfect addition to my gym wardrobe (not that I’ve been very committed lately…) and would look awesome paired with some sleek tapered joggers. I feel a purchase or two coming on!
The full collection from the Deichmann and Caroline Blomst range is now available to buy online here and prices range from just £17.99 – £27.99. so I think you’ll agree they are VERY purse friendly. Even more reason to buy my two favourite pairs (or three, or four)!
Which shoes are your favourites? What do you think of the Caroline Blomst collection?
