I love shoes. They’re my favourite item of clothing to buy, even though they’re the item of clothing with the naturally shortest life-span, sad face. Limited edition Vans have been part of my wardrobe for a long time, just now I’m currently wearing my way through two pairs of Star Wars Vans that have been […]
As my regular readers (and friends) will know I’ve got through a lot of changes over the past few years: personally and professionally. There’s a few simple things in my life that have gotten better too: I’ve become less fussy with food, I’m braver, I’m not longer afraid of going out at night and various other anxieties that I’ve overcome in the past three or so years. This month I overcame another one of these anxieties confidently: shoes without socks and on a more extreme level, sandals without socks!?
I’ve been a massive fan of both Jeremy Scott and Melissa Shoes since I first became aware of either of them existing. I first discovered the magical, shoes of my dreams via the first ever Vivienne Westwood collaboration with Brazillian shoe brand, Melissa. I worked across the road from the Westwood shop and the first time I saw their sky blue and red Lady Dragon shoes, I just had to have them. They were in fact my first ever designer purchase from a designer store and I’ve still got them today.
So I stumbled upon these totally mad shoes and bags inspired by My Little Pony on Instagram, when I did some research it turned out to be from Finnish designer, Minna Parikka who I’ve spotted in department stores before and love, when I checked out the AW15 collection I just had to share it as it’s so totally made, kitsch and colourful.
Hooray for another proper outfit post photo set thanks to the awesome Miz! And yes, no natural day light required because I’ve got a flash gun and a white wall for epic photo-ness with minimal effort and without the fear of freezing my ass off on the streets of Shoreditch. This is my outfit from […]
I love shoes, but I also love comfort. As much as I would love to be the sort of person who can wear sky high, platform heels daily, I’m not. Fortunately, I don’t need to either as I’m so tall to begin with, if I wear heels I tower over others and feel a bit […]
I love my new Butterfly Twists folding ballerina pumps so much that I wanted to offer the chance for one of my readers to take a pair home. The kind people at Butterfly Twists are offering one reader a pair of folding ballerina flats in the size and style of their choice. Which ones would […]
One of the shallow, girly things that I want to try and do more of in 2013 is to wear heels more often. Being a tall girl, I often avoid them as feel self concious about towering over hubby and others. However, I do still love how wearing heels makes me feel, plus they make […]
Right then, I’m thinking I should just move to East London as I seem to spend most if my time in Spitalfields or Canary Wharf lately! This is my fourth trip to Old Spitalfields Market in the past month and I’m there again on Saturday for the Vintage Fashion Show. This is my first proper […]
I’m so excited to shop for Autumn Winter 2012, I really struggle shopping for clothes and shoes in the Summer as the fashions are just not my thing. In Autumn and Winter the colours are better, the fabrics more appealing and I love the trends that come around each year. I’m particularly excited for the […]
