Preen x ALDO Rise

Speaking of ridiculously overpriced heels, how do you feel about purchasing a pair of shoes straight off the runway, but with a very veryyyy reasonable price tag. Ladies, we're talking two digits here. Yup, I was walking around the Avenues the other day when I spotted an ad announcing the arrival of Preen's collaboration with ALDO RISE stratigically placed right outside Aldo's store.

I'm overly excited about it because I have seen the Spring/Summer 2013 Preen x ALDO RISE shoe styles live on the catwalk when I attended the show with Moda Operandi's team during London Fashion week (previous post here). The models at the show wore classic-shape pumps and sandals featuring a pointy toe, patchwork leather detailing and statement hardware. So I gave in and bought a pair, now the next thing to do is head to AlOthman boutique and buy that asymmetrical Preen skirt I've been eyeing to complete the look.
