The Shoe Edit

How many times have you had the perfect outfit but just haven’t had the shoes to go or seen someone looking great only to look down at their feet and just thought how horrendous their choice of shoe was… Shoes are sometimes the trickiest part of pulling the outfit together and can often ruin an outfit, probably because we don’t have an endless supply of colours, styles and comfort to work with the many various outfit options going on in our wardrobes.  Some people are shoe people and others really struggle to find good shoes. I find this such a problem with so many clients, everyone has trouble finding good shoes, when budgets are real, good quality options are limited.  Another thing I find is so many people have feet issues, whether its a different feet sizes, issues or injuries meaning they cant wear heels, feet sweating in synthetic materials, broad feet, narrow feet, extra high arches, bunions… you get my drift.  Some general tips would be to always buy real leather (if possible), comfort is key and its very obvious when someone is uncomfortable in their shoes, the shoe style suiting a body shape, and also not just following trends in shoes.  Just because your foot doesn’t have a “big bum or skinny legs” scenario doesn’t mean anything goes.  If the shoe style does not suit you, don’t buy it!

Some just despise shoe shopping, so I’ve done the shoe haul.  There is a serious shoe game out at the moment. Enjoy this browsing experience made easy, from high street to high end, trendy to classic, there’s a shoe or two out there for you (;) ) ! Happy shopping X

Green is the new Grey

If you haven’t noticed already, Green is taking over the world, in more ways than one!  My love for green has escalated so in the last couple of months that the sight of anything green makes my heart skip a beat!  Give me an urban jungle any day over a sleek white and grey room (snoring).

There’s actually not much more to be said here other than cast your eyes upon these heavenly sites of inspiration followed by my Green Wish List.

“Women of Abstract Expressionism”

My green gucci wish list: From black tie to ripped jeans, what an asset these three would be to a wardrobe and boost to any outfit.

And also on my green wish list is the “Green is not a colour” book By Devan Valenti & Simon Atlas.  If you are more interested in living & learning green than wearing green then this book provides readers with a highly informative and visually stunning exploration into the wide range of environmental issues that face our world today. In fact written in a very easy to read and comprehensive way, questions and answers means you can pick it up and open it on any page and learn something every day.  My kind of book.
