Project Take 10: Zign at Zalando



I love a good Mary Jane. Even if they have been totally bastardised by high-street shoe chains as of late, they still remind me of sixties babes, Courtney Love circa Hole and a host of illustrated Enid Blyton's from my childhood. Thank you to Zign at Zalando for making a Mary Jane with a wearable platform in something other than pleather. In a beautiful pink suede, they don't look like I've just resurrected from my nineties school shoe collection. Or maybe they do, but I love them regardless.

I decided to run with the sixties theme and give myself a mini-hive and wear the heels with a polka dot mini from Primark and, inspired by Jen's recent love for a sparkly cape, a sequin over-sized collar from Peacocks, a sale bargain bought for a fiver.



Are you a fan of the Mary Jane or do they remind you of uniforms and school days? This month everyone went for a totally different type of shoe, from warm winter boots to loafers, so make sure you take a peek at my fellow Take Tenners and their style.

  2. These are lovely. Especially like the chunkiness and the just right size heel. I absolutely adore Mary Janes. I was a big fan of Hole so used to try and source my vintage mary janes and babydoll dresses from anywhere I could find them. This was in the days before they became so fashionable and were still the preserve of the vintage babe!

  3. Yes, Mary Janes! They are a bit school girly but I'm a bit of a fan of the look, to be honest - and I dig the 60s schoolgirl vibes. I adore your dress too, just super. xx tess

  5. I love Mary Janes. Most of my heels are Mary Janes. I've got really narrow heels and can't keep heels on without the strap! MJs solve all my shoe woes

  13. I love the slight chunkiness of the shoes, they're just a little bit different from other high street shoes around and I the colour and texture are very pretty. Love you styling also as ever :)

  17. I love mary-janes... for a while they were the only shoes I wore just because they're comfy and stay on! (I don't walk funny - honest – but I do have a habit of losing a shoe when rushing about!) Colour is pretty fab :)
