Velvet mules and Oaxacan dress
by Thomai Papathanasiou

You might wonder how many pairs of pink shoes somebody needs when you go through my posts. But it was impossible not to fall in love with these velvet mules instantly! And I know that I didn’t need them but just look at them. They are so cute!

You may have noticed that mules are on trend right now and I already have another pair. However these ones combine another must-have of the season: velvet! The fact that they are pink and with a bow is just the cherry on top 😉

Everything happened so fast! I was shopping with a friend of mine (we were looking for shoes for her) and as soon as I saw them, I was immediately attracted to them. I checked for my size and it was not available. A sales assistant was there and she offered to look for my size at the back. And they did have it so I tried them on and I knew I had to take them home. So  I went straight to the cash register. I think I was inside the shop for about 10 minutes in total. So you can tell it doesn’t take much to convince me to buy something!

This outfit is proof that you can use mules with trousers, skirts and dresses and that velvet can play well with other textures and fabrics. Especially in this occasion I love how they make this dress with traditional, ethnic elements look very modern. The only downside is that I need to be very careful because the velvet can get ruined and stained very easily. But I will do my best to take care of them and enjoy them for as long as possible 🙂
