Liv's first pair of heels

Sometimes you don't realise how quick time flies.  It only seems like yesterday that my niece Liv was a little girl , now she's thirteen and has a better social calendar than me!  She just seems to have 'shot up' and grown into a lovely young woman.  She's developing her own style that suit a teenage budget but is also age-appropriate.  What's also great but has still taken me by surprise is that she knows what suits her and makes her own style choices, long gone are the days of buying her what I think she'd suit! 

She has a birthday party in a really cute club in Blackpool to go to and also my mum's birthday dinner in a few days, so she's bought two dresses for the occasions - a navy dress with scalloping, layered detail (for the club party) and a cream vintage style dress (for the birthday dinner) that I want her to wear with some brown lace up worker boots.  She's bought her first pair of heels for the party from New Look to wear with her new outfit.  The heel size is perfect for her first pair of heels, just right for dancing and perfect enough not to be a killer heel.  I had to think back to remember what my first heels were like, I bought them with wages from the hotel I worked at during the holiday season, they were a pair of cream satin stilettos - hey it was the eighties! What were your first heels?

I bought those same sandals from a car boot sale a few weeks ago and goodness, they are so comfy and well as being pretty.
My first heels were some crepe soled wedges with a triple buckle fastening. I think they were from Curtess in about 1977. xxx

My first heels were when I was about 6/7 I think, just small ones obviously and I was only allowed to wear them at home. They were little white shoes with a chunky heel, I remember thinking the heel was huge but it was probably about 1cm. xx

Awww how sweet, I remember my first pair of heels, I was about 9/10 my gran bought them for me in Blackpool. I'm not sure how to describe them, but I remember wearing them to school one day and getting told off xxx

So cute! Perfect for a first pair of heels :)
I remember my first pair of heels were hand-me-downs from my older sister when I was about 9 or 10. The were 3 inches high & black patent (probably quite inappropriate looking back now!) My mum wasn't keen, but because I idolised my older sister, I just had to have them when she no longer wanted them!
Thanks for the lovely comments you've left on my blog.
