It’s not uncommon for the powerhouse that is Penneys to bring out such statement pieces. They just keep setting them up and knocking them out of the park. With these eye catching pieces comes mass hysteria. You just have to have them and sure they are so affordable why wouldn’t you. Yes that is true but i also have a wardrobe full of ‘dirt cheap’ shoes that i never actually wore. With this pair i wanted to look at ways these embroidered heels can be worn so you can actually get the wear from your purchase.
The shoe itself looks quite expensive. It has a great shape to it that will suit the foot well. The platform heel gives a nod to the 70’s aestethic while being comfy AF. This type of heel is also so much easier to walk in than a stiletto style and is a lot more stable. At closer look the heel is almost a demi wedge but the wider cut out will keep your feet firmer on the ground than a wedge itself would. I like a good ankle strap personally as it provides some extra support for the ankle. An open toe sandal in structure that is made Autumn Winter appropriate by the chunky shape.

A/W can be very dark and glum. The bright and vibrant colours of the season gone are nowhere to be seen. We rely on textures , layers , materials and details to lift the otherwise dull colour palette. These shoes are a great example of this. Embroidery is sticking around for Autumn Winter but with more of a seasonal twist to it. Adding some shoes like these heels is an easy, simple way to lift a plain outfit. A cheap and effective addition to transition and keep center stage as the Winter moves on.
Ways To Wear
I put together some head to toe outfits featuring the €22 floral shoes for some outfit inspiration. All pieces are from Penneys and instore now. As i always say it’s only a bargain if you actually get some use from what you buy.
