Good Enough to Eat! Shoes & Accessories for Spring 2014

Pastel and Candy Shoe & Accessories trend for Spring 2014

Is it only me, or are the many pink, blue & colourful shoes/accessories coming out for Spring looking very much like candy? Of course, designers such as Charlotte Olympia & swatch have taken the pastry trend literally, with adorned anklets & bracelets, but aside from the obvious quasi-edible statements, don't the floral motifs make you think of wedding cake decorations? The colourful gemstones seem like gumdrops? Maybe I just have Shoe Bakery designs in my mind. Maybe I'm just hungry. But I can almost taste the sickeningly sweet stickiness of these scrumptious pastel shades & glossy colours.  Mint. Rose! Lavender!! I'm seriously smitten by the quirky, feminine nature of it all. And coming from someone who isn't as girly as some would like to believe, this means a lot 😉

Are you looking forward to this 2014 Spring trend?!
