Studio 54 – Party Shoes

Monday, November 9th, 2015

With party season ahead of us, its only right that get ourselves ready for the glitz and glamour of our favourite time of year.

Time to bring out the sparkles, glitter and lame and go OTT this season with a touch of Studio 54 glamour. The Seventies have been a huge fashion influence this year and this continues into partywear with us taking our outfit inspiration from the likes of Angelica Huston, Grace Jones and Bianca Jagger.



Back then the jumpsuits were head to toe glitter and the heels were high, but it is easy to achieve this look with a stand out pair of shoes and plenty of sparkle.

Platforms were of course the shoe of the ’70s and our Twin Platform Heels are a must have. With a vintage style moc croc leather upper, these heels look fab with a gold sequin shift dress. If you aren’t too keen on the skyscraper heels then the mirrored silver Lima Flatforms also look super cute with a classic LBD.

Suede knee boots and ankle boots were also a style statement of the era and this season we are wearing them morning, noon and night. Wear our Nomad Over the Knee Boots or Immortal Metal Heel Boots with a bell sleeve playsuit.

If points are your thing, you are spoilt for choice with our fab collection. Wow the crowds with a pair glitter On Tops, Trouble High Back Courts or our Topical T-Bar Point.

We are more than ready for the party and we hope to see you there!


Hot for Halloween

Monday, October 19th, 2015

Its that time of year again when the pumpkins come out and the perfect excuse to dress up and get creative. With Halloween parties lining up its time to get your outfit sorted and more importantly what shoes you are going to wear!

You are usually pretty safe with black or red shoes for the occasion but if you would rather go for a more subtle nod to the undead rather than a head to toe number then we have the perfect Halloween style shoes to get you looking gothic and glam.



Wednesday Addams is a pretty fail-safe look and lets face it, it never gets old and looks so fabulously chic! Pop on a black pinafore with a white blouse underneath, pigtails, knee high black socks and either some Dr Martens 3 Eye Lace Ups or the dolly style Dioon Buckle Shoes. These shoes will also look great with a broken doll look or zombie schoolgirl, plus we love wearing these all year round!

Vampires as we know are always fierce (R.Pattz mmmmm) so our Victoriana inspired Intoxicate boots will look super sexy with a vampy look and don’t forget the blood red lips!

The over the knee boot is the shoe of the season and you need a pair in your wardrobe so you might as well use them to your advantage for All Hallows Eve. Perfect for a superhero or Catwoman, this stand out Eve boots will make a statement even without the costume!

For the ladies who would rather take a slightly subtler approach, then the new Trouble High Back Point Court or Tipple Cut Out Heel are great gothic inspired heels that wont bite.

We cant wait to see all your Halloween looks, make sure to tag @officeshoes so we can see what you are wearing.

Trend Alert: The Bandal

Wednesday, September 16th, 2015

Sometimes referred to as the shoe boot, the “bandal” is every girls must have heel this season.

Its been rocked by the likes of Alexa Chung, Selena Gomez and Olivia Palermo and now we cannot stop wearing them in OFFICE HQ. This flattering silhouette, can easily be dressed up or down and oozes sexy siren.

Ankle boots are the ultimate transitional style and every girl loves a heel, so this little hybrids are the perfect mix of the two and are a great shoe for Autumn as they are exposed just enough without making you cold.

the bandal

The bandal has been worn by the Kardashian clan many times, often paired with skin tight jersey. However if you aren’t brave to bear all, then wear yours with skinny jeans and and a big shirt or some tapered trousers and a classic leather jacket.

They also make a great going out shoe because your are less likely to stumble out of them and they look gorgeous with a cute skirt, crop top and some statement earrings.

We are all over this style and we can’t wait to see how you rock yours this season.

What shoes/trends are going to be big in AW15?

The 70’s goes 90’s – A hybrid of two of the biggest fashion resurgences of the last few years, and really easy way to incorporate two trends in one look.

Goth is also going sexy this winter, think premium and feature materials, lacing, and super stretch ankle boots.





The 70’s Platform Heel

Wednesday, August 26th, 2015

A trend that has carried over from Summer is the return of the sassy Seventies.

This summer we saw lots of boho blouses, peasant dresses, tassels and ghille lace up gladiator sandals, but this Autumn the trend has taken on more of a Studio 54 vibe.

Smarter and sophisticated this 70’s update will see a huge focus on possibly the most famous footwear from the era, the platform heel. Whether its a boot, a sandal or a wedge, the platform heel is a definite must for the Autumn season.

70s trend


We have selected some of favourite new in styles to get you ready for the injection of Autumnal colours into your wardrobe and to keep you towering above everyone.

Platforms are generally the more comfortable heel shape as even though you are pretty high up, your foot is slightly more balanced with the addition of a platform sole. If you really want to elongate your legs and stand tall then the Twin platform heel in patent moc croc leather and the Taller Super Wedge in burnt orange suede are your go to styles. Wear with straight leg ankle grazer jeans and a tight high neck tee or jumper.

Keep things a little lower with the Vagabond Tyra ankle boot or Question Loafer and pair with a cute pinafore dress and long sleeved stripy tee.

If you want a true nod to the glam 70’s, the high leg Indigo ankle boot and Tilly Platform sandal in leopard pony will look fab with some ankle flared blue jeans and a tied up flannel shirt.

Get Ready for Glasto

Tuesday, June 23rd, 2015

The backpack is full, the tent is packed and we are almost ready for a week of fantastic music and culture at the legendary Glastonbury Festival in Somerset.

With headline acts Kanye West, Florence & the Machine and The Who, the festival is set to be an explosive one and we cannot wait to see what everyone is wearing.

Come rain or shine the crowds pull of some weird and wonderful outfits and are usually armed with a pair of trusty Hunter boots or classic Converse to keep them dancing from dusk til dawn.

Here is some of the looks and styles we will be rocking at Glasto this year.




OFFICE Muse’s: – Meet Fabienne

Thursday, January 8th, 2015

Let us introduce you to our OFFICE Muse, stylist, blogger, presenter and DJ extraordinaire Fabienne Hebrard.

This style savvy multi-talent is definitely an East London girl at heart, constantly rummaging through vintage shops and supporting up and coming designers to use for work or just to dress herself. With mermaid, My Little Pony locks, Fabienne is not afraid to take fashion risks and mixes bright colours with edgy, key pieces to create her unique style. She loves some statement metallic heels to wow the crowds at her gigs and can’t live without some chunky cleated sole ankle boots for everyday.

Check out Fabienne’s Muse page and how to get her look here.


During a break from shooting we caught up with Fabienne to hear what inspires her and get some style tips for 2015.

Who is your style muse? I love bad-ass women who ooze confidence like Juliette Lewis and Jennifer Lawrence – for me style is about personality as well as wearing something with a bit of an edge.

January is a tricky time of year style-wise, what are your top tips?

My top tips for January is to wear something that will be transeasonal. With the un-predictable weather, it’s best to invest in an ankle boot. It’s a classic style that can be dressed down or up and take you through different types of weather. Even an open toe can be worn with cute socks or tights when the weather is a little colder. Layering is key!

How does your work look differ from your down time look?

Even though I’m tall I do love heels, so I’ll often be in a wedge or cleated sole even in my down time. Although often when I’m running to different PRs for styling jobs, be it pulling clothes for a shoot, a DJ gig or  presenting job, I do love a good practical pair of trainers, plimsolls or ankle boots to get me around faster.

What do you new things do you invest in and one thing you can’t live without?

I can’t live without black boots. I have so many pairs and am forever buying new pairs! As I don’t want to wear them out but always seem to do so (dammit!).

When I invest in newness I like to go for something that will go with most of my wardrobe. Whether its black, white or a standout piece of footwear like metallic or holographic it needs to be hardwearing for all the different weathers we go through on a daily basis in London, particularly at this time of year.

Who and what inspires you in fashion? Street style inspires me everyday. When I’m out and about around where I live in Shoreditch and particularly during London Fashion Week, people really go all out and its nice to see a real mix of crazy and cool styles. I like mixing the two.

What magazines, blogs and people do you take inspiration from?

I subscribe to Dazed & Confused so if I don’t get a chance to buy a magazine I know that’s coming through my door and its my go-to for new talent in fashion & music. I love Tirade for their shoots, Nylon online and Hypetrack & Pinboard blog for music.

Do your friends inspire you? Yes, a few of my best friends have their own fashion label so its always nice to see what trends their looking to and designing around for the coming seasons. I’m inspired by all my friends confidence and drive in whatever they do.

How important is footwear when building your outfit?

Footwear is super important as I’ll often start an outfit based on my footwear and work the clothes around it as it is an important part of what look I’m going to channel that day.

What brands inspire you?

I’m really into supporting young British designers and try to represent that in my work – be it wearing it for a gig or using them to style. I’m in love with British brands Sera Ulgar, LulaLoop, Gemma Goldstone & An Original Leeroy for full on 90s vibes as well as LA brands like Tiger Mist and Aussie based brands such as Nixikillick & Discount Universe. I love vintage finds from Beyond Retro & LFF Boutique.

What are your style resolutions?

I’ve been investing more in key pieces rather than buying something that will only last a season so I want to continue that in 2015. That and my obsession with metallics!




NYE: To party or not to party?

Wednesday, December 24th, 2014


Chilled house party

House parties can make the best New Year’s however a smart/casual dress code can sometimes prove difficult. With our Coven ankle boot you get the best of everything, comfortable, on trend and with gold detailing wear with rolled up jeans and a sparkly top for your laid back evening.

Loafers are all over the catwalk for next season so start the trend fashionably early by rocking them this NYE. Try metallic ones like our best selling Extravaganzas for the perfect dressed down party look. Team with a short girly dress a la Dakota Fanning.




All glammed up

If getting glammed up is on your New Year agenda then you’ve come to the right place. Channel superstars like Rihanna and Rita Ora with our high heel Saintly Sole Sandals in festive colours like silver and burgundy. If you’re willing to brave the cold for this high fashion look then we applaud you!

The over the knee boot trend will continue well into 2015, ring in the New Year in style with our sleek, Neve boot. Wear with a plain, short dress like Nicole Scherzinger or leather leggings for extra warmth.

Fireworks & Cocoa

These classic Dr.Martens are perfect for watching the fireworks with a loved one, comfy and durable they’ll get you through hail, rain or (hopefully) snow!

If you still want to make an effort while retaining maximum comfort then why not ‘bling’ in the New Year with the Bailey Bling Ugg boot. Grab a cup of cocoa and get ready for the countdown!
