Cut It Out

August 24, 2013

For the past two summers I have been searching for a pair of cut out ballerina style shoes, but I have never been able to justify the price tags of the ones from Topshop no matter how much I want them. 
Shoes - Barratts* (£18)
I was contacted by the lovely team at Barratts Shoes a few weeks ago about reviewing a pair of shoes and I jumped at the chance. Barratts is a well known shoes brand from the UK, who thrive on offering an extensive range of footwear for the whole family at amazingly affordable prices.

When I first saw these Cut Out Peep Toe Ballerinas, I just knew that I had to have them. They look exactly like a pair you would find in Topshop, but for a much more affordable price. They are available in a range of different colours, but I wish they did them in a tan colour. When I first received these in a size 7 they were actually a little too big, which I do find with some stores as the sizing is never the same in every store, but after returning them and receiving a size 6 they fit perfectly. I love them and they're so comfy! I can see myself getting a lot of wear out of these as they can be styled with both casual and more dressed up looks, which is always a positive in my eyes.

Have you bought any shoes from Barratts recently?
