Online Shopping Tip
Shoppers from outside the UK can snap up bargains at the moment due to the low value of the Pound compared to the Euro and the Dollar. Many of the online stores featured offer worldwide delivery and, if you live outside the EU, a VAT refund (VAT is effectively a UK sales tax and the rate is currently at 20%).
Carvela is a brand of shoes which is owned by the luxury shoe retailer, Kurt Geiger. Other brands owned by Kurt Geiger include KG by Kurt Geiger, Miss KG, Solea and Fashionistas.
The Carvela Shoe Collection
There are some great shoe designs in the current Carvela footwear collection. Highlights include:
- The Carvela Google peep toe courts. Absolutely nothing to do with the search engine, the Carvela Google peep toe court shoes are 1970s inspired high block heeled platform courts with a contrast suede and metallic panel upper.
- The Carvela Angelina Wedges - high wedge heeled suede shoe boots available in grey or black. The combination of high wedge heel and platform sole creates the most chic of leg lengthening effects.
- The Carvela Alma platform court shoes, available in silver or purple, are a fusion of leather and suede, finished with a slim high heel and platform sole together with contrast piping.
- The astonishing Carvela Glam evening shoes, which are super high platform shoes which combine a metallic green upper and silver sole together with an oversized bow to create the most space age evening shoes ever.
