One of my favourite places to shop whenever I take a trip up to Cairns is the Tony Bianco store at Direct Factory Outlet (DFO). The Cairns store is great for two reasons: firstly, because there are heaps of bargains and sales and secondly, because the staff are always very lovely (always a good thing). During my trip to Cairns for the New Year’s Eve weekend, I just had to make a stop there. Unfortunately, I was given money to buy the Felicia Black Chicago wedges, but they were all sold out (as they are online). Regardless, I found two really great pairs and kept my bank balance happy in the process.
Tony Bianco’s Veri had me drooling at the sight of them. I first spotted them online and kept them in mind for my trip to Cairns. DFO had all manner of sizes and colours and the best part was that they were on sale from $189.95 to $60 – $20 cheaper than they are online. I choose the style in ‘coffee galileo’, however, I also really liked the tan style. For a 15cm heel, they are surprisingly easy to walk in – something I put down to the fact they’re wooden with rubber on the sole. The heels are quite versatile outfit-wise and can be worn with a dressy or casual outfit – such as the casual daytime outfit I’ve paired them with below. If you’re looking for an on-trend heel, but don’t want to wear a heavier clog, then these might be the shoes for you.
With kitten heels making a comeback, I figured I’d invest in a pair. Not only are the Giga as comfy as a flat, but they’re also very sweet and perfect for a pretty frock or even a corporate outfit. There’s three colours to choose from, however, I bought the ‘mid brown/sand scorpio’, as it matches potential outfits the easiest.
