Despite the fact that I have been suffering through temperatures of 115* for the past two weeks, I have begun shopping for fall items, and have already acquired one blazer, one pair of boots, and a handful of sweaters. My favorite acquisition, however, doesn’t fall into any of these clothing categories – rather, it is a posh-meets-playful pump. The High Drama Pumps, to be exact, which I was lucky enough to receive from mark last week; and absolutely had to share with all of you, because I am literally obsessed with them. Plus, a lot of people asked me about them after I posted this picture on Instagram @cafefashionista a few days ago – so I thought it was the perfect time to introduce them. So, without further ado…
…these are the High Drama Pumps. They are colorblocked faux suede that mix black, chocolate brown, and a sandy tan/camel color together; and sit on a 4 ½” block heel (similar to the one seen on the Miu Miu Sparrow-Print Pumps from a couple of years ago) that is super sturdy and comfortable (we’re talking walk-and-stand-for-8-hours-comfortable).
Because of the color scheme, these scream fall to me, and I think they will look amazing with chocolate-colored tights and sweater dresses, or wine-colored miniskirts and chunky sweaters once the weather starts to cool down; for now, I have been unable to resist wearing them, so I’ve been pairing them with cropped blazers and cutoff denim shorts, as well as skinny jeans and basic tanks. Oddly enough, they literally look fantastic with anything because of the mix of neutral tones, which is always a plus. I personally find that they have a very early Blair Waldorf / 1920s Spectator Pump vibe to them (but that might just be me and my obsession with Gossip Girl and The Great Gatsby).
I have the Size 6, and it definitely fits true to size. There aren’t any half-sizes available, so if you’re between sizes, I would say go up. I wear between a 5 ½ and 6, and have a very narrow foot, and found that these fit me perfectly (and comfortably). If you are looking for a colorblocked heel, the mark High Drama Pumps come highly, highly, highly recommend from yours truly because they are ridiculously affordable ($42.00!), adorable, and, in my opinion, an absolute essential for fall/winter. Love. Them. ♥
