Pleaser Pin Up Bliss 38 Black Satin Court Shoes Review
My review of the Pleaser Pin Up Bliss 38 Black Satin Court Shoes
As most of you are aware, I quite like shoes. Ok, fine… huge understatement.
Hello. [coughs nervously] My name is Cara and I am an unstoppable, rampant shoe addict with an insatiable lust for sexy heels and shiny boots. Sorry.
Well anyway, the news is out and someone must have whispered a word as I’ve been sent these delicious Pleaser Pin Up Bliss 38 Black Satin Court Shoes to “test and review.”
Points To Note
I am a long time fan of the Pleaser USA collection of shoes, already the proud owner of some of their “stripper” style shoes as well as two pairs of thigh boots. The only issues I have had in the past is that:
1) the boxes can arrive slightly battered, not a problem to me but worth mentioning,
2) due to the sizing the shoes are in half sizes when converted to UK shoe size.
I am usually a UK size 7, with not the slimmest feet in the world. In the past I have made the mistake of going for a US size 9 but this converts to a UK 6.5 which was just too much on the small side for comfort. I have even had to sell shoes and re-buy in the size up. Luckily Pleaser shoes tend to retain most of their value even second hand and I wasn’t out of pocket.
The size that fits me best from Pleaser Shoes is a US size 10 which states on the box it is a 7.5 UK size however despite the fact I am a UK 7 this size is the one for me. Lesson learned: if in doubt buy in the half size up, not down!
Postage & Arrival
I was lucky to have an extremely friendly and helpful contact – as well as patient with my somewhat frightening enthusiasm over the prospect of owning more shoes. These came via ‘tracked post’ for me by Royal Mail, very discreetly, not that I am worried about the postman’s opinions of me being sent shoes in the post, you understand.
Obviously if you are receiving items to use in your sexy areas then discretion is a must and I can assure you that in that case, you won’t be disappointed.
Why I Chose These
I have owned similar shoes to these Pleaser Pin Up Bliss 38 Black Satin Court Shoes before (I think they were the ‘Delight’ heels) but sadly the ankle strap of those ones wore too thin. Despite never really being able to wear them again with confidence I have tenaciously clung on to them as they go with so many of my favourite outfits. Although I couldn’t find exactly the same style again, this pair will be a replacement for those. Therefore I am feeling quite satisfied about having this shoe collection dilemma resolved finally.
Really, with these Pleaser Pin Up Bliss 38 Black Satin Court Shoes, the pictures tell their own story. They’re black with a satin feel and with burlesque and doll shoes connotations, almost a French, Parisian flair.
The toes are adorned with a velvet bow and around the foot benefits from a sheer ruffle which adds immensely to the overall beauty of these Pleaser Pin Up Bliss 38 Black Satin Court Shoes.
The heels are 4 and ¼ inches which I feel are comfortable for a night out standing, walking, dancing – without being painful after 5 minutes. If you are used to heels then these shoes should be fine for you.
As I’ve already stated the size I have fits perfectly so the feel of the fit is brilliant for me, no issues either with or without tights or stockings.
Due to the somewhat muted and understated design of these Pleaser Pin Up Bliss 38 Black Satin Court Shoes they go with a variety of outfits. They can be worn to many occasions making them highly versatile and therefore a great all round purchase. They could be worn to either dress up skinny jeans and a bling top for day to nightwear, all the way up to clubbing outfits, burlesque and fetish nights or to wear with ballgowns and to prom style special events.
Pleaser USA is a well known, trusted and reliable brand and you can be sure of the highest quality shoes when you purchase from their range. Some of their shoes are very high and can be uncomfortable if you are not used to the heights so be sure to check the heel height of any shoes you purchase before committing to the buy! My personal favourites include many from the Bordello sub-range of Pleaser. Have a peek at a small part of my shoes collection in my photo galleries.
In summary I am delighted with these Pleaser Pin Up Bliss 38 Black Satin Court Shoes. They suit me perfectly and Id strongly recommend them to all pin up style high heel lovers.
