“Blink” Accessories: We Heart Christian Louboutin

Wednesday, February 11th, 2015

Yes, this is another small concession to the impending romance-a-thon that is Valentine’s Day. Well, we have a 365, 24/7 love affair with shoes and handbags so why not combine those fashion passions with a February 14th PDA? Here is your perfect solution, with deepest love and thanks to Christian Louboutin.

The red-soled superstar even has a hash tag to help you share the Loubi-love on Saturday- just tweet or instagram a picture of your shoes along with #LOUBOUTINWORLD to join all of the other Christian Louboutin wearing ‘sole mates’! Genius.

You’ve heard of wearing your heart on your sleeve? Well we fashion types prefer to wear ours on our feet or dangling from a shoulder strap! So if you’d like to romance me this Valentine’s, then a size 38 in these babies would be perfection…

“Blink” Events: House of Hackney SS’15 at The Communications Store’s SS’15 Press Day

Wednesday, November 19th, 2014

The first time that I walked into the House of Hackney shop, I nearly fainted from an overwhelming sense of joy. Okay, that may be a slight overstatement but there was definitely a minute where I couldn’t catch my breath (you can read more about that first visit here). If you haven’t been in then get yourself to Shoreditch High Street and prepare yourself for a highly patterned, highly fabulous retail experience.

The shot here is of a mini version of the House of Hackney experience via The Communications Store‘s press day. The SS’15 collection was displayed along with a couple of their interiors pieces, just to help set the scene.

The new collection features some brilliant new print designs shown as standalone statements as well as in some wonderful combinations. From skins to florals and botanical inspired leaves, the scale and colourways are as bold and vivid as we have come to expect and love from this genius British brand.

To top it all off, and to pull the whole mood together were these stunningly 70’s platforms. Get buckled up on to my feet now you beauties.

“Blink” Accessories: Metallic Addict

Tuesday, August 19th, 2014

As I salivated over yet another pair of shiny shoes, it occurred to me that I might have a bit of an obsession. I may well have been a magpie in a former incarnation because anything with a some sparkle and glitter is pretty much irresistible to me.  It appears that my nemesis is particularly the metallic shoe. Here’s my collection, but I can justify every single one as they all do a different job, are a varying metallic hue, have different heel heights and types- should any justification ever be needed!

my metallic shoe obession. From left to right we have old gold from LK Bennett, Greek sandals from Mykonos, silver winklepickers from Topshop, mahoosive wedges from Zara and my stunning silver wedges from Prada.

I have owned those Prada beauties for about 9 years. That silver finish also coated the soles (until I danced most of it off). You see, a well chosen shoe can be a style investment that you will enjoy over many years. Upon reflection and seeing them all laid out together, I think this is all pretty reasonable and that there’s room to add a few more variations on this theme!

Oh, and as I was shooting this at home the other morning, Bobby decided to photobomb. Yes, you are more gorgeous and more loved than my shoes, don’t worry x

“Blink” Accessories: Putting the White Foot Forward

Thursday, May 9th, 2013

We’ve been noticing a very particular and enticing colour trend in shoes over the past month or so. There was a time when white stillys were a byword for a very trashy look, but what goes around, comes around in the wonderful world of fashion, and the white shoe is now a key look for the season.

Granted, none of these are old school stilettos, but they do cover pretty much all of the key shoe shapes for this Summer from flatforms, through the ‘strapoot’ to the newest variation of the classic stilly in marvelous matte white from Stella.
