Metallic Accessories - Butterfly Twists Millie Pumps and New Look Unicorn Clutch!

Monday, 12 January 2015

If you've got a pair of Butterfly Twists, you'll know how incredibly handy they are. I got my first pair about 2 years ago, a simple pair of brown ballet pumps, but they were a revelation! If you aren't familiar with the brand, they launched in 2009 with a range of fold away shoes designed to be carried in your bag or kept in the car for those times when oh my god, you just need to GET THESE HEELS OFF STAT! I took my first pair on a trip to London, not really intending to use them but erring on the side of caution, but I honestly think I had them on longer than the heels I was wearing for the event - godsends!

Anyhoo, I'm very aware that I've been absent for some time since before Christmas, but I'm now easing back in to blogging and I thought I'd start off with showing you my new pair of BT's - the Pewter Millie's (now in the sale for just £24!) and their new best friend in accessorising, the unicorn clutch that my BFF Stephy got me for Christmas :)

The Millie is a cool brogue style with beaut ribbon laces. It comes in silver, gold, black, and this gorgeous pewter colour and they are just brimming with metallic goodness! Look at the shine on these bad boys, they are actually reflecting the sunset on my toes! I also adore the studding, which is totally back in for footwear this season by the way, epic placement!

The heel features the Butterfly Twists logo which is a nice touch. They are super comfy straight out of the pouch and are so lightweight on your feet you barely notice that you have them on, the perfect swap out for those party heels! I've had a good folding sesh with them and even though they are a slightly bulkier style compared to the original ballet pump styles they definitely still do their thing, though they won't fit in a super small bag. They're clever, but they're not shoes for ants.

They are really cute though, probably too cute to hide as an afterthought stand in for pesky high heels! Look how adorable they look paired with this fun bag from New Look? So much shiny goodness! For me, this style is more of a comfy everyday shoe for nipping the shop or popping to see a friend. I wouldn't like to recommend wearing them for walking around in all day because I'm not sure if the flexible sole is designed for that sort of pounding, but they certainly wouldn't come to any harm on a quick parent visit!

What do you think? Do you have a pair of Butterfly Twists, or are they something you think you could get into? If so, do check out their current sale, there are loads of styles starting at £7.50 including flip flops, the classic ballet pumps, brogues, moccasins, trainers and even boots, all rocking the super power of potential teeniness - yey party feet!
