Sinderella Custom Made Wedding and Evening Heels

11:41 AM claire 0 Comments

Recently, I was invited to the Starhub TVB Awards, courtesy of HTC. (Thank you HTC!) Having no idea  what to wear, I panicked and decided to get heels first. Instead of the heels matching the outfit, the outfit can match the heels too :p

By sheer luck, I was introduced to Sinderella at Orchard Delphi who does customised shoes for formal occasions! Orchard Delphi is a quiet mall opposite Forum, further down from Palais Renaissance and along Orchard Road. I like that the shop is in Orchard Delphi because that's where you can find a lot of wedding dress shops and it's a good escape from the hustle and bustle in town. I hate shopping in crowded places, sometimes I get so turned off I just leave even though there's a crazy sale.

Welcome to Sinderella
When I reached, I was taken aback because the shop was just so pretty!! With glistening evening heels, feathers, velvet seats, and a warm smile from the staff you know you're in good hands.

Sinderella specialises in customised footwear for ladies. Have an idea of what heels/flats you would like for a dinner, formal event or your wedding? Sinderella will custom make these for you and you'll receive your footwear in 3-4 weeks! Express services will be at additional charges.

 
Thanks Isabel for accompanying me! Without her help I might still be at the shop deciding on a design, pattern, accessory etc, there's just SO MUCH flexibility when it comes to custom made heels!!

I've summarized the different ways you can customise your heels at Sinderella so keep reading! ;)
  • Design 


The first step would be to pick a design. Do you want strappy heels? Slip on heels or open toed heels? Get inspiration from the heels on display, don't worry if you don't like an aspect of the heel, you can change that later. Be it weddings, galas, birthdays, DnDs or special events, Sinderella  can help you create your dream pair of heels!


These heels with star shaped crystals stole my attention, especially with the unique v cut front! The other one looks like something a Disney Princess would wear. It's all about how you want to feel on your special day, right?

Going for the Starhub TVB Awards meant that it was going to be a red carpet event, so I picked an open toed pair with a simple motif! There are many designs to pick from, and if you head over to their website Sinderella, you can take a look for yourself!

PSST! 3 weeks later, after I collected my heels, I realised that the only tough consideration is that you're not 100% sure if the heels will cause discomfort or if they will fit. Mine were too big and even though I was provided with anti-slip paddings, they lost its stickiness pretty soon. Have to find super glue to permanently glue them on or drop by the shop again to see if I can get a strap added to them! Before getting them made, one size smaller was too small for me, and they don't have half sizes. Remember to make sure your feet fit when you try the sample heels they have in-store!!
  • Accessories

Want to add more 'bling' on your heels? No problem!

If you think that your heels are too plain or the accessory on the base design doesn't fancy you, there are cases full of accessories made of crystals and even pearls to pick from!! This heel caught my eye because of its pearls and feathers. Instant attention to your feet ;)


These heels will suit 'The Great Gatsby' theme if you're having a movie star Company DnD night!

For my heels, I did not add any additional accessories because... I didn't feel like it. Haha! Okay the true reason is because I wanted bling heels and too many accessories will steal the limelight from that.
If you pick accessories, rest assured that they are sewn on to your heels so they will not fall out!
  • Colour

Here's where you can experiment with colours! You can edit the strap colour, fabric texture (lace vs gloss), choose between a sparkly or non sparkly material and let your imagination run wild! Isabel and I were deciding between a black lace design for my heels or a satin one and eventually, satin won. As I hadn't decided on a dress, I didn't want to take a risk and go for something that might clash with my outfit, so I stuck to a safe choice - black.


 Timeless lace
Here's the black lace I was contemplating to add on top of the satin! You can remove the sample and place it on the heels if you need a stronger visual impact. That's what I did anyway!


Isabel really liked these heels because of the mesh sewn on detail, but it didn't look as nice in black!! If you're getting married soon you can consider this design, sooo gorgeous.
  •  Heel height


Of course, you can also pick the height of your heels, and the width of the base. I didn't want the tip to have too small a surface area (because it's harder to walk in for longer periods of time) so I picked the one in the middle. You can pick the material to wrap your heels, whether you want it to be the same colour as the body of your shoes or you can be daring and pick something totally different!
  • Heel design


Did anybody say BLING???? Yes you can add bling crystals to your heels!!!!  This is me trying to envision the final product :) You can ask for bling to be stuck on ANYWHERE so get creative and go wild!!

  • Additional details 

Better not lose your other heel like Cinderella or your heels won't make sense on their own!

Some people add 'I Do' at the soles so it would look nicer in pictures! That's an idea for you. You can add crystals on the platform, along the rims etc, and if your budget allows it, pick Swarvoski Crystals because they are wayyyy more sparkly!


 PSST! They also have a section for you to pick evening bags! Your bag should match your heels, after all.


It was a great experience, staff are attentive and will listen to your every detail and note them down. The hard part was over, and now I had to wait for my final product. *crosses fingers*

The Finished Masterpiece!


Here's the final product of my heels that night! It's pretty isn't it? I had them swarovski-crystal'd individually, but some of the crystals fell out during the night. Guess crystals aren't that practical after all. Still no regrets though! :p Plus these crystals have a lifetime warranty so if they fall out you can head back to the shop to get them replaced :)

My final outfit for the night! Dress: Isabel's, Heels: Sinderella, Hair: Komachi Hair Cult Bag: Germany


I was going for a minimalist, chic look that was versatile and elegant. Painted my toes red to match!


*throws confetti* what do you think of 3.5 inch heels with bling! I like the little gathers by the flower and the open toed front is quite special. My last toe is completely hidden and gives the illusion of smaller feet :O



If you look closely at the crystals, you'll notice a star near the top! I wanted a star because my heels had to be original and have a dash of unpredictability incorporated in the design, and I think the pasting of each crystal must've taken quite a while to complete!

Oh, I also added 0.5inch platforms (front half) and padding at the balls of my feet so that my feet wouldn't feel so tired from standing and walking around a lot. These little details really add up!!


Be sure to check out their shop if you're looking for customised wedding heels, formal heels or just need an excuse to get a new pair. You can order online at their website below and they ship all over the world! ;)
