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!


Trends we won’t miss in 2014

Friday, January 3rd, 2014


2013 was a great year for fashion, but as always, there was room for a few errors. We take a look at some of the faux pas we hope won’t be returning in 2014.

Mum jeans

There’s room in our wardrobes for skinny jeans, bootleg, boyfriend, cropped and even jeggings, but we draw the line at mum jeans. With their high waist, tapered legs and baggy thighs, was there ever a more unflattering way to wear denim?


Too much flesh

We are all for flashing a bit of toned tummy in a crop top, or for some artfully placed sheer panelling in a LBD, but 2013 saw some people daring to bare far too much. Bikini tops and hot pants are for the beach, not the red carpet. We’re looking at you Miley Cyrus.

OTT flatforms

Now we love a statement shoe, but some of the crazy flatforms being sold were too much even for us. Plus they are actually really hard to walk in, give us some four inch heels or flat pumps any day.


Mullet skirts

Much like the hair-do they take their name from, mullet skirts with a short front and a trailing back have had their day. In 2014, pick either mini, midi or maxi and stick with it.


All over matching prints

Head to toe matching prints is always too much, instead, break up your outfit with some neutrals, or opt for a mixture of clashing prints in complementary colours.

Jumpsuits and playsuits can look very stylish, onesies are fine in the privacy of your own home, but there’s no place in our wardrobes for overalls, unless you are doing some DIY.

Thursday, February 21st, 2013

This week, we headed to Somerset House to see what the fash pack were wearing.
Here’s how to get their looks!

Embrace a minimalist aesthetic by keeping your outfit structured and monochrome. Offset your look by playing with textures, or compliment it with a crisp white shirt and statement clutch.

Ladylike doesn’t have to be boring. Play around with colours and layering for an up to date look.

Get the look with Oxygen £65 (coming soon) and Fine Line £40

Grunge doesn’t have to mean flannel shirts and unwashed hair;this season it’s gone grown up. Team statement trousers or skinny jeans with your
favourite vintage style sunglasses and chunky flats. Think Francis Bean Cobain not Courtney Love.

Get the look with Prowl £60 and Peekaboo £25

Take it back to the future, by keeping lines clean and playing with pops of colour, accessories and print instead.

Staff Style: Leather Skirts, Wedges and Bows

OFFICE Staff Style - Wicked Wedge burgundy Microfibre

It’s that time of year when my wardrobe doesn’t know what it wants to do. Should I start wearing some new season stuff or do I stick to what I know? Ahhh! Faced with such a dilemma and new shoes adding to my wish list (daily it seems) I decided I’d have a look around the office for a little inspiration.

Leather skirts, tights, socks and tees seem to be the flavour of the day today. The Wicked Wedge looks great in this burgundy microfibre accessorised with cute vintage accents. The cream lace really works well with the contemporary leather skirt and modernistic flatforms. Super cute geek chic with a bit of a modern twist. Love it.

OFFICE Staff Style - Office Vintage Bow red leather

Our Vintage Bow in red leather has been given a bit of a grungy edge with a leather mini and printed tee.  The bright coloured Vintage Bow really add a quirky edge to an otherwise dark outfit. Sometimes it just goes to show that inspiration can be right under your nose. Thanks girls!
