8 Pairs of Sexy Caged Heels I’m Lusting After

These days I’m liking them bold, sexy and complex with just a hint of danger.

My shoes, that is!

I’m legit obsessed with shoes with lace-up details and intricate straps. I’m also loving over-the-knee styles and booties but that’s another post. Basically, if it has a lot going on, I want it. Shoes that are extra allow you to keep the rest of your outfit simple and still look like you know a thing or two about style.

Believe it or not, this trend is also practical. The extra straps and adjustable laces mean that your feet will be securely in the shoes and won’t slip around. This makes it easier to walk in higher heels which may be difficult to manage as a pump or minimalist sandal.

I’ve been browsing caged heels online and these eight really had me ready to click “Add to cart”. Take a peek and let me know which ones you love most. Also, let me know if there are any other shoe trends you’ve been scoping out.

If it’s your work shoe situation that needs a boost, check out this post. If you just want all these heels to stop hurting your feet, I got you here.

My Experience Shipping to Barbados from Boohoo.com


A while back I did a post on fashion and beauty websites which offer free international shipping. The response to that post was great so I thought I’d let you in on a discovery I made last year. Boohoo.com ships to Barbados for just £6.99. That’s about BDS$20.

I’m not sure how long this was the case but I genuinely felt like I’d been missing out all along. I’ve always liked Boohoo’s selection of clothing, the fact that they have petite sizes and their prices but I don’t know if I ever checked their shipping fees. Maybe I  just assumed shipping from the UK would be expensive. I truthfully don’t know.

Either way, that’s all in the past now! I was a little cautious about purchasing from the site so I opted to get just a few cheap pieces. Here’s what was in my order.

Paying £42.99 for six pieces including shipping was not bad at all.  (There’s a top not pictured that I got for my mom.)

I ordered on November 27, the order shipped the next day and arrived in Barbados shortly before Christmas. At one point in tracking the shipment I realised it left the UK and was in Belgium and I got a little concerned but that was unfounded. Turns out they knew what they were doing and the package eventually made it Barbados. When I got the notification from the post office to collect it, I was finally able to breathe.

Now the Customs duty on clothing is 60% and then there is 15% VAT and 20% NSRL which should be applied. In my experience, the post offices do not always hold fast to that so you may still feel like you got a bargain after paying the applied duties. That’s how I felt. Still, my advice would be to budget for the correct amount when you go to collect packages.

Everything pretty much fit true to size although I could have gone up a size with the velvet dress. Overall, I was pleased with the items and I would definitely order from Boohoo again.
