Shiny Satin

There's something about satin heels that can change a whole outfit. Colourful satin pumps can instantly pop up a simple LBD. Satin's shiny texture is attention grabbing and glamourus. It's sexy but still has sophistication.
The fabric is not flattering for everyone when worn in dresses, since it accentuates every lump and bump. A pair of satin shoes are just the right amount of shine.

Black Satin

Choose black satin pumps if you're wearing a glitzy, embellished dress to keep the attention on the dress but still keep it glam and shiny.

Colourful Satin

Go for coloured satin if you're wearing a black dress or an outfit that needs colour. Choose the shoes carefully, since all eyes are gonna be on them.

Satin Flats

Flats in satin are a more classier alternative to the simple black day flats.

Sorry for my late reply, sweetie! Of course I would love to exchange links with have such a wonderful blog <3

You have to be very brave to wear satin since, as you said, it shows every lump and bump on your body, so it's wondeful that you have made a post about satin shoes..then it can't go wrong ;)
