I have a red shoe obsession. I blame Dorothy! and I realise I am not alone in this. So have a peep at my new ‘Baroque’ style red Lotus shoes and matching bag. If you like red shoes you may like these…?
Red Lotus Shoes and Bag:
Nothing makes me happier than red shoes and new lacey underwear. This week I received both and it felt like Christmas. Which by the way is only 92 days away! (said in a whisper because I dont want to shock you)
The shoes are in the style of the fashionable ‘baroque’ trend. There’s lot of it around right now and I for one am enjoying it very much.
Relating to or denoting a style of European architecture, music, and art of the 17th and 18th centuries that followed Mannerism and is characterized by ornate detail.
In architecture the period is exemplified by the palace of Versailles and by the work of Wren in England. Major composers include Vivaldi, Bach, and Handel; Caravaggio and Rubens are important baroque artists.
Highly ornate and extravagant in style.
I would describe the ‘baroque’ look as textural with lots of detail, think of a coat made from an intricately embroidered and nubbly woven brocade, then perhaps trimmed with faux fur around the collar and cuffs?
Think of making clothes with upholstery fabric, like Julie Andrews when she whipped up new outfits for the children, out of her bedroom curtains. Very sound of music ‘style’ then?
There is a bag to match too, very useful my iphone fits in it along with my purse, a small hair brush and a lipstick.
You can use it as a clutch, or snap on the chain that comes with it and use it as a shoulder bag, the choice is yours.

The Dina Bag
Contrasting black rope effect detailing is entwined on the body of the black Dina clutch handbag. This microfibre handbag is also framed in polished metal hardware and features a clasp fastening. For times when you need your hands free, attach the chain strap and wear over your shoulder.

If these gorgeous red lotus shoes weren’t already in my wardrobe I would pop them on my Christmas list asap, how about you?
