Wowsers - looking at these shoes, you'd instantly think Choo, Blahnik... or at the very least, Geiger (Kurt), wouldn't you? Then you were probably as taken aback as I was, upon seeing they were in fact from Dorothy Perkins.

High street shoes have definitely been lifting their game for a while now, and these eye-catching ruby caged platforms are a perfect example of why you don't have to fork out the big bucks to get shoes that are striking, on trend and well-made. They're also priced at just £40. Good work Dotty P.
