Cobalt Colorblock



Good morning, Everyone! I hope you had a great weekend! If you read my blog on regular basis, I am sure you are well aware of my obsession with shoes and I think, I’ve also mentioned before that one of my biggest dreams is to some day design a shoe collection of my own. So, you can imagine my excitement when I was approached by Shoes Of Prey, a website that allows you to design your own custom shoes, to create my very own design! 
I have to admit that the design process was completely addictive, with so many shoe shapes, leathers, fabrics and colors to choose from, I spent countless hours playing around the 3D Designer. 

I started by selecting the shape of the shoe (you can choose between ballet flats, stilettos, sandals, oxfords and wedges). Since I am completely addicted to high heels, for me it was between stilettos and high heel sandals. And with Summer right around the corner, I figured a cute pair of strappy sandals is just what the doctor ordered:) 

Once I selected the shape of my shoes, I started playing with leathers, fabrics and colors (170 in total to choose from). As you know, I absolutely love bright colors and color blocking in particular. So, after playing around with a few different color options, I decided to go with a beautiful cobalt blue. Since I wanted the blue to be the focal point of this design, instead of adding another bright color, I chose to pair it with black and white. I also wanted to play around with a few different textures, which is why I opted to combine leather, suede and fish skin together. I think this combination adds richness and depth to the design. What do you guys think? 

The best part of this whole experience, aside from the design process of course, was opening the box and finally seeing my design come to life! I am so happy with the way they turned out. Fun, bright and comfy, they are exactly what I had had in mind for Summer. So, I suppose I should warn you in advance, you are definitely going to be seeing quite a bit of them on this blog! Hope you don’t mind!:)

P.S. If you are just as obsessed with shoes as I am and/or have a soft spot for custom made heels, head over to shoesofprey.com to design your perfect pair!
