SHOES - Crown Jewel inspiration

I couldn't let the Jubilee pass without at least one tenuous reference, so for my monthly Spartoo shoe edit I've gone for jewel-encrusted styles, inspired of course by her Majesty's glittering crown jewels. These shoes are also great options for special occasions whether that's a Diamond Jubilee, wedding, opera or other special event. Occasion shoes are usually easily categorised by either being finished in satin or by some element of sparkle. I've picked out some styles in various colours to go with lots of different occasionwear outfits this summer.


Fitting with the diamond jubilee, these peep-toe courts have diamond-like jewels beneath a tucked fabric detailing. These would make great bridal shoes too, if you can stand in a high heel all day. See more court shoes over at Spartoo.


Glittering in gold, these sandals are very summery and perfect for an evening event. A little more expensive than the others though, so you'd need to make sure they got their wear... great as dancing shoes too perhaps?



More simple in style, these classic black sandals are perfect for events like the opera or posh parties. Jonak also have some fab other, more edgy style shoes.



These are probably my favourite of the bunch. Simple in style with a slightly lower heel, they'd be great for weddings and other daytime occasions. Menbur have a really big range of stunning occasion shoes.

I'll be heading to a wedding this summer on the East Coast of Italy. It's a traditional Italian affair with all the family set to party into the night. My family will be the only non-Italian speakers there which will make it somewhat interesting as we try and keep up with the day's (and night's) events. Are you off to a wedding this summer? Will you be opting for a touch of sparkle when it comes to your shoes?
