Shoe Porn: Patent Camel Flats

As much as I love the whole camel trend (and I remember it being the first trend I really noticed when I was a kid reading fashion magazines in the dentist), it doesn't really suit pale skin. Rather than look really washed out, I'd rather stick to pretty accessories instead. Like these patent camel pumps (when did we stop calling it nude? Isn't it basically the same thing?)

They're from Topshop, and they've got everything going for them, haven't they? I adore patent leather, you know that. But the bows are a great addition. And the strappy, zippy thing that they've got going on stop them from being too cutesy. The zips have got chunk gold heart charms too, just for added foot adornment.

If you want these (you'll have to fight me for them), but they're a rather bargainous £28.

    Those are definitely nude - camel refers to that warm, sandy-honey colour as a ref to the hugely popular long Burberry camel woollen coats and trenches perennially seen on Sloanes in the 80s.

  2. You'll have to take that up with Topshop...

  3. Could I wear these with black opaque tights? Or would that be a bad thing to do? It's just so cold.

  4. *clicks on Topshop link* holy crap! Can't believe some idiot fool at Topshop is trying to make camel happen in a completely different colour. Labelling fail. This is the aviator jacket all over again.

  5. It's possible they're more sandy coloured in real life, but I was surprised by the labelling too. Either way, as a pale-skinned blonde I still can't wear either colour particularly easily.

  6. Camel is only "nude" if you're white.
