Mary Janes fit broadly into two camps: the grown-up and sophisticated sort that are particularly en vogue at the moment - and the cutesy, girly type that will always have a place in our hearts. This shoe from Christofoli is certainly the latter!

Christofoli red Mary Jane shoes

Reduced to £79 from an original £122, they're made from real patent leather with a velvet trim and dinky bow at the front. A slender strap completes the flirty and feminine look, and I love the colour clash rose pink that's been used on the under sole and heel. 

These adorable 'dolly' shoes could be worn as part of a full-one sweet Lolita look or as a playful counterpoint to a smart, work-wear look. I'd rock them with a shift dress and short jacket to give a hint of whimsy to my day wear, possibly teamed with a matching bow detail handbag.
