You may recall from my Spring cleaning post I got rid of a TON of shoes (and yes, that was a precursor to this move) – some because it was time for them to go and some because I did not have room. However, what I realized is that my favorite black pumps had seen better days and I had tossed them before I got to London. Therefore when I was shopping with Kitty during her visit a week and a half ago I decided to go for it and while browsing the very dangerous and gorgeous store that is Harrod’s I pulled the trigger on these gorgeous Ted Baker pumps.
The official name is the Ted Baker MELISSA shoe which is described on their website as, “Bow detail heel trim courts featuring a trendsetting high-cut vamp”. What drew me towards them was their classic shape merged with the interesting heel detail from the cut to the rose gold metallic bar detailing along the stiletto heel. And of course they come with a signature Ted Baker bow for a feminine finish that the brand is known for. And I had a bit of a hard time photographing it but I hope you can see the rose gold metallic trim at the toe too, I think it is such an understated and pretty detail. These heels are high – nearly four inches (a 100mm stiletto heel for my European readers) – but I found them surprisingly comfy and walked around the store for a good period of time before pulling the trigger. Take a look at let me know what you think!

These shoes are so pretty and i actually wore them on Saturday night – I had to break them in! While shopping I also saw the Ted Baker Azalia leather ankle booties which I decided not to try on for fear I might like them too much but they are definitely on my wish list now!
What do you think of these Ted Baker Melissa pumps?
