Now I have been looking for a bright electric blue dress for
months and as you can probably all imagine, I did the ‘happy dance’ when I
actually found one on Boohoo for just £20.00 (click here).
For months I have been disheartened by Miss Guided’s flush collection of
electric blue dresses but only to find that every time they did not have any in my size, and just to crush many
more hearts, they had no sizes whatsoever *sob*. Now I really meant what I said in my Summer Lookbook post (click here) Boohoo really ought to win
an Oscar for being the most versatile and well stocked brand because their
range has really been on point this summer. And to make things even more tempting,
I ordered this dress just before 5pm on the Tuesday afternoon and it arrived by
9am the next day (just in time for my
sister’s graduation which started at 12pm that day… I know what a risky game to
play). Also, it only cost £1.99 for next day delivery *insert shocked emoji here*. So with that all said, I thought that this dress was perfect for my
sister’s graduation because its VIP edge offered sophistication, whilst its
bold and beautiful colour made it a right summer head turner.
As you have probably already observed, these orange The Glow Brand Shoes are fabulously striking and clash with this dress in a fun and positive way. Not only are these heels hot enough to trot in, they are also an inspirational and charitable buy. The colour of these shoes (orange) represents the Starfish Greathearts Foundation which is a charity that brings life, hope and opportunity to children who have been orphaned or made vulnerable by HIV/AIDS. AIDS has killed around 30 million people and a further 34 million are living with HIV. This has left a generation of children to grow up without mothers and fathers and the foundation seeks to work from the ground up, facilitating local partners to make a difference in their community. The foundation’s work ranges from crisis intervention (like food parcels), education and training, mentorship, support with income and helping to obtain identity documentation. The Glow Brand have many other colours available and they all represent different charities, so go and take a look by clicking here.
shoes themselves are made out of rubbery material and
I must admit I have never owned a pair like it. I wasn’t sure at first because
the box really did smell quite rubbery, but
they look amazing to wear. I almost think the material of the shoes makes them look extra punchy however, I must say that wearing them is another story. When you walk in them they squeak really loudly and they almost remind me of the noise that comes from rubbing two balloons together. Despite that being said, they are so comfy to wear and they would definitely be ideal for occasions like a rave, foam or a glow in the dark party (they would be ever so durable as they are waterproof!). The shoes themselves are £106.57 each which I think is a extremely dear however, in a charitable sense, I think they’re worth it.
What do you make of this dress and shoe combo?
