One of the really cool things about having the kind of blog that I do, is that I get to try products that I wouldn’t have picked up for myself. Occasionally, these products are just a tiny bit out of my comfort zone which makes things interesting. This is definitely the case with these Teeze Cheetah Platform Shoes from Ohhh Canada.
I should start off my saying that although I love animal prints, most of the heels I wear are more of the traditional stiletto pump variety. So, these are not shoes that I would normally wear outside of the house. However, if my lingerie reviews are any indication, I am a fan of dressing up in the bedroom from time to time. Why? Because it’s fun and re-connects me with my background in theatre. When it comes to dressing up in the bedroom we often overlook one crucial accessory: shoes. I often just throw on my favourite pair of very high patent leather stilettos that go with everything & call it a day. So, although you won’t catch me wearing these shoes for a night on the town, they’re perfect for some dress-up play. They kind of remind me of something “Stripper Lily” from How I Met Your Mother would wear. And if you can’t dress up like your favourite HIMYM doppelgänger in the privacy of your own bedroom, where can you really?
(Editors note: the team at Ohhh Canada wanted me to let you know that if you’re not sure of your size, you can order two sizes and send the other size back (or drop it off at our retail store) for a full refund of the price of the second pair. You’ll have to pay the shipping, but there is NO other cost. If you’d prefer to try them on in person, please send them an email at email@example.com or give us a call at 647-288-1118 x 1 and they’ll have your shoes in your style and your sizes ready for you to try on in-store at 721 Queen St. West, 2nd Floor within two business days.)
Although I can’t imagine wearing these shoes for an extended period of time (at least with the current size I have), they’re the perfect footwear for costume play in the bedroom (you be Marshall, I’ll be Lily), a pin-up inspired photo-shoot, a Burlesque performance (pending the correct size/fit) or even a private striptease for your partner. With the right outfit (maybe this one?), these shoes could look really, really hot.
However, if you’re not used to wearing heels, with a 5.75 inches, you might find these shoes a bit daunting! My advice: in order to prevent injury and potential awkwardness, do a few practice runs around the house before you decide to wear them in the bedroom. You’ll thank yourself later.
I’m sure Stripper Lily would understand.
