Well here’s something I never thought I’d say – I am officially a shoe. A Ted Baker shoe, no less!
If you follow me on WIWT then you may remember that back in October I posted these teaser pics and said I was working on something exciting…
Well I can now reveal that Ted Baker have named a shoe after me. Yep, you can now own your very own pair of Poppy Ds. I feel so Lana Del Rey right now.
I met with the Ted Baker cobblers last year to go through designs and whilst there were plenty of fab pairs to lend my name to, I knew I wanted the Poppy D shoes to be high, glam, sexy and AWESOME. I am obsessed with Ted’s baroque banana heel design so I knew my shoes would have to have that. And I knew I wanted the shoes to be ‘statement’ and conversation pieces. And they needed to be high. Did I say they needed to be high? Well, I think it’s fair to say they are!
So without further ado, meet my namesake…
And, remarkably, they are my legs in the shots above! For one day only I was officially a leg model. (I’m glad they were super high to prevent cankle issues!!!!)
God, I love them so much. That banana heel, the metallic leather, the laser cut out fish scales. Any mermaid fashionista would approve. And believe it or not they’re actually pretty damn comfy thanks to the platform. (They’re nearly six inches high, SO HOT).
The shoes are available now in silver, gold and rose gold at stores nationwide and retail at £180. They’ll be available to buy on the Ted Baker website very soon but for now, you’ll have to go to a store to nab a pair. And omg if you do please tweet me a pic or upload one to WIWT!
As a treat to celebrate the arrival of Poppy D in shoe form AND the arrival of PoppyD.com the blog (i.e this thing you’re reading right now) I have a very limited edition pair of Poppy Ds to give away in PALE PINK SNAKESKIN. Only two pairs of this design exist in the whole wide world…and I own the other pair.
They were a sample one off pair so, unfortunately, they are only available in a UK7. So please be aware that this prize is only available in a UK7…and nothing can be done about that as they’re literally the only pair in the world except for mine (which are also a size 7 and I’m not about to part company with!).
Wanna win them? There are two ways: Leave a comment below and/or retweet this tweet. A winner will be chosen at random on Thursday the 14th of February at midday. A nice Valentine’s gift, if you will. Boys – feel free to enter on behalf of your lady! You can have one entry via comment and one entry via RT – multiple tweets and comments are nice but don’t make you win things any faster.
The prize can only be posted within the UK.
