This New Year’s Eve, we plan on dancing our way into 2014 in comfort and style courtesy of the latest collaboration between Pretty Ballerinas and Internet sensation Bip Ling.
The U.K. footwear brand loved for its cute ballerina shoes joined forces with the blogger, model, and DJ to create a six-piece collection of fancy flats that look as if they’ve stepped out of a Quality Street sweetie box. Think pointed pairs with mint-green trimmings and loads of glitter and bright-purple leather styles with Ling’s signature cartoon, “Mooch” adorning the toes.
The lighthearted, fun-loving collection will brighten up any outfit. And, judging by the outpouring of shoe GIFs on Ling’s own site, it seems she's rather partial to the clever creations, too. She explains to Grazia, “I was so excited when Pretty Ballerinas approached me to collaborate on a capsule collection as I’ve always been a massive fan of their pumps. I especially enjoyed collaborating on each stage of the design process, and am extremely proud of the outcome.”
