These shoes may not look like much to write home about, but having seen them in person during my trip to Matalan last week, I can assure that, in real life, they're absolutely gorgeous - in fact, they may just be the perfect patent court shoes, and considering they're only £12 per pair, that's pretty impressive. Available in black and purple, the heel is high and the shape is beautifully elegant, with the gold trim on the inside of the heels adding a touch of flair to the otherwise classic shape. Yet another winner from Matalan from this season - and I may just have to go back at some point and grab myself a pair before they're all sold out. They're available in-store only, I'm afraid, but are well worth the trip.
