It’s a long time I haven’t shown you a chic outfit on this blog! I think it is the right time because year-end celebrations are coming and the stores are going to receive their Christmas collections. I hope this outfit will inspire you.
I have built this outfit around my new Elena Ricci pumps, found on Chauss Mini Maxi e-store, a shoe store specialized in extreme sizings. As its name indicates it, we can find shoes for small feet (from 32 to 36 at the women’s and from 36 to 41 at the men’s) and for bigger feet (from 37 to 45 at the women’s and from 42 to 52 at the men’s).
When we first visit Chauss Mini Maxi e-store, we are a bit disoriented because there are a lot of different designs from different styles : feminine pumps, sneakers, sandals, and so on. While discussing with Hélène, the manager, we understand better the brand’s concept. Chauss Mini Maxi sells shoes of course, but above all, it sells a service to its customers and does everything in its power to satisfy them. In order to help people to find the perfect pair of shoes, there are designs for every taste, every age categories and all kinds of feet shapes.
Personnally, I have been astonished by the pumps comfort. The leather is very soft, from very good quality and the shoe perfectly fits to my feet curve. We wrongly often (me first) favour aesthetics over comfort by choosing designs that don’t suit to us, and we horribly suffer because of it. I ignored that there are lot of different feet shapes and this criteria is not to neglect when we choose shoes. Happily, Chauss Mini Maxi takes it in account when advising customers visiting their physical stores.
If you are interested in Chauss Mini Maxi shoes, you need to know that there are two collections a year: one for fall/winter and another or spring/summer. Designs are quickly sold out and there is no restocking so don’t wait to much if you have a crush on one pair. There is an e-shop but also three outlets in France, in Nantes, Tours and Lille. If you live abroad, Chauss Mini Maxi can deliver your shoes worlwide! It’s good news for small feet!
The dress comes from Chi Chi London, another English brand that offers a petites collection. Evening dresses are awesome, in a retro-chic and modern style. I had a crush on the one I wear on the pictures. I love the design and the fabrics pairing: black and gold brocade for the top and a softer fabric for the skirt which is entirely lined with tulle for the volume.
The earrings come from the designer Eloïse Fiorentino. Eloïse hand makes refined, timeless and geometrical jewellry that mix both irregular shapes and patterns inspired by antic ornaments. Her creations are made to last as the materials used are very good quality one: metal gold plated or silver plated.
Enjoy your week! It is not too late to try your luck to win a set of three pairs of glitter socks (it is here).
Fashion advice for Petite
This Chi Chi London dress is the kind of design I like to wear. I find that it fits very well to petite morphologies: the design is short and is paired to a high waist to look taller.
