fake-snake-shoes.jpgSnake effect is a great pattern for teaming with all your smart day or evening-wear looks, and can be as handy as black or brown as a colour for easy pairing. In fact, in this case it's even better, as both hues are included in the pattern.

This isn't real snakeskin of course - it's a faux-snake shoe from Peacocks. But we think they've done a great job of capturing the look and we also love the shape of the cute Mary Jane heels with their subtle platform. It's a little bit Vivienne Westwood and is packed with vintage charm.
