RUBY “bon bon” heels

RUBY ‘bon bon’ heels

Could not resist buying these beautiful grey suede sandals from RUBY when I got word that they had finally arrived in Wellington. And I stress the word ‘finally’ as the wait for these has felt like far too long. Clearly I’ve taken a small respite from my shopping ban, having allowed myself these shoes as well as a few jewellery pieces from the recent Shopbop sale to add to my slow-growing collection. I have no doubt these shoes will have had plenty of wear by the time the summer is out. The black and burgundy versions are just as gorgeous, and of course if I could, I would have bought all three pairs.

    I had a look at the other colours but I think I already knew you had made the right choice with the grey. Really lovely and I like the way the sandals have a back for the heel – I wish more sandals were like that (also helps with dry heel syndrome which I see so many bloggers afflicted with who forget to moisturise before inflicting shots of their horrid heels on the world). Why have beautiful shoes and horrible heels? Only takes a minute to be picture perfect.

    They are beautiful! Definitely worth the break in the shopping ban! I love that little bit of tan trim the most, it looks so lovely against the grey.

    Congrats on the elegant new heels, they are a lovely and versatile pair, enjoy styling them up!

    Hey lovely, just wondering if you have tried on the denim polka dot dress from KW resort on – sleeveless, drop waist, frill neck? I’m thinking of getting it from Maximillia with the 30% off code but I know you said the fit was funny on a lot of the dresses.

    Pretty shoes – I see you’re getting back into heels!

    Those shoes really are gorgeous, I’m off to check them out now. Fingers crossed they still have them in my size. Hope you’re having a great weekend.

    Shopbop is just the best place to buy from. I constantly have weekly packages arriving in the mail from them! And how gorgeous are your new shoes. Anything with an ankle strap gets a tick in my book xoxox

    PS I’ll be in Dunedin and Queenstown. I wish I were making a stop in Wellington, maybe next year πŸ™‚

    wow…these sandals are pretty amazing….the website didn’t have heel height…are they comfy??

      They are incredibly comfortable – I haven’t had a chance to wear them out, but I was at an event in store and one of the girls was on her feet in them for several hours and seemed to be fine!
