Some time ago now I was pining over a certain pair of shoes on my Twitter. Well, here they are! I'd been having a quick browse whilst out shopping and out of the corner of my eye caught a glimpse of the bold, red, pop-arty heart motif. It reminded me of something from a Roy Lichtenstein artwork or Disney's "Alice in Wonderland". Now I have never really been a big fan of jelly shoes, but I must say when I saw these I fell in love instantly. The next week they came home with me, and with perfect timing too as they happened to be on sale!
Mel - Dreamed by Melissa, is a Brazilian footwear brand that manufactures jelly shoes in a large variety of styles. The shoes are made from an eco-friendly plastic called Melflex which is 100 percent recyclable as well as vegan friendly. The plastic is also durable, can be easily cleaned and flexible, ensuring the wearer's comfort. This was also one of the things that hooked me in to these lovely things. I do a lot of walking, so I am very appreciative of a good pair of shoes that can substantially support my feet yet still look pretty and liven up my outfits.
The shoes that I have bought are called Fresh IV. I love that they are peep-toes. They'll be perfect for when summer comes around with my bright red toe nails peeping through. Another little bonus is that the love hearts are raspberry scented. How sweet! They also come in nude and black, which I'm very tempted to buy as well!
