Monday, May 18th, 2015

With the annual Cannes Film Festival kicking off last week, we thought we would share our fave looks from the event, and of course the shoes.

Film stars, models and pop stars made their way to the South of France to attend this glamorous festival that honours upcoming films, stand-out directors and acting talent.

Girl next door Emma Stone and Oscar winner Cate Blanchett both opted for some black pointed heels like our classic On Tops that complimented their porcelain pins and black cocktail dresses by Oscar De La Renta and Alexander McQueen.

Newcomer Rooney Mara  also wore McQueen and German bombshell Diane Kruger wore a pale blue, embellished Dolce and Gabbana dress. They both kept things simple with some minimal nude, strappy heels as to not take the attention away from their dresses. Get the look with our Priscilla heel.

Bad boy Colin Farrell looked every inch the movie hunk in his grey three-piece suit and his shirt open just enough to make the girls blush. He paired his summer suit with some classic brogues like our premium Poste Montrelle.

Oscar winner Natalie Portman looked like a little black swan in her Rodarte dress, that she matched with some cute black heels like our Pretty stiletto.

Festival Trend | Boho Babe #outofoffice15

Friday, May 1st, 2015

Festival season kicked off with Coachella in California and we can’t get enough of the bohemian style that every girl was loving. Take some inspiration from the celebs, models and fash pack for your festival style and be the ultimate boho babe.

Think crochet crop tops, long kimonos, feather hair accessories and gladiator sandals as your base for a touch of hippie chic. Practice some messy hair braid and over accessories with plenty of rings, bangles and flower headpieces.

Add a touch of 70’s style with some suede Chelsea boots like the Bramble or a western fringe boot like the Minnetonka Bandera. Easy to wear, these boots look great with a bell sleeved, floral playsuit or some ripped denim shorts and a kaftan style top.

Get up to date with the hottest footwear style this summer, the ghillie lace up. The chunky Wild Thing heel is fab paired with a crochet smock dress, floor length kimono and some rose gold painted toenails.

A sandal is a must have in your festival backpack in case of warmer days and a classic Birkenstock is a summer favourite. The new mocha coloured Milano with rose gold hardware are perfect with a long cami and some paisley printed shorts.

Best Dressed Wedding Guest

Tuesday, April 28th, 2015

It’s that time of year again where you have to start planning your outfit for maybe 1 or more friend’s weddings and that usual panic starts to creep up.

You don’t want to upstage the bride but lets face it, you want to get pretty close. Having the outfit and shoes decided will give you time to perfect the hair and make up and less time freaking out whilst crying in front of your wardrobe on the day.

bestdressedwedding

If you like to play it safe with the outfit then go with a plain colour (not cream, white or ivory) and make a statement with the shoes. Stand-out styles like the cut out Petite and sheer Premium Mesh heels are a great match with a simple shift dress or midi A line skirt and cami combo.

For more casual beach and countryside weddings then a wooden block heel like the Winnie or a glitzy sandal like the Ontario are your go-to styles. Pair with a cute floral tea dress or a maxi skirt and a bardot style top for a retro 70’s vibe.

For the girls who aren’t afraid of losing their stilettos in the grass, the slingback Pin Up heel in a summer pastel colour is a classic occasion shoe. Wear it pin-up style with a tight fitting dress or midi skirt and a high neck top with backless detail. As the heels do all the talking, keep the hair and accessories simple with some chic drop earrings and a low side bun.

Coachella 2015: Get the look

Monday, April 13th, 2015

Known as the festival of the rich and famous, this weekend saw the start of Coachella and officially kicked off festival season.

The coolest Californian residents, supermodels and movie stars were all out in the searing California heat to enjoy music by Azealia Banks, David Guetta and The Weeknd.

The fashion theme for this year was most definitely influenced by the ’70s and was awash with tassels, fringing,suede, gypsy tops and crochet dresses.

The new model besties were there including Kendall Jenner, Hailey Baldwin, Gigi Hadid and Jourdan Dunn. Leading the fash pack with their hippie chick style, these beautiful specimens are our ultimate festival style crushes for this season ahead.

Bring a touch of Coachella glamour to the UK shores with this bohemian look for the festival season ahead. Although the weather isn’t guaranteed to be as perfect as California, we can definitely bring the sunshine with what we wear.

Western style ankle boots are a must when faced with dry, dusty ground and super comfy for dancing in all day. The Minnetonka Bandera Boot is a celeb style fave and we will be wearing ours with raw edge denim shorts and a crochet crop top this summer.

A ghillie lace up heel is our style favourite for this season and the chunky heeled Wild Thing looks great with a paisley patterned slip dress and fringed kimono.

Gladiator sandals are a holiday essential and a great addition to your festival backpack for those super hot days. Easy to wear, the Outlaw sandal looks good matched with a maxi skirt and cami or a cute, printed co-ord set.

The JuJu Babe Hi sandal is great come rain or shine and a great addition to your summer wardrobe for festivals or holidays.

That 70’s Show

Friday, April 10th, 2015

The trend that is on everyone’s lips and has transported us back to Woodstock is of course, the Seventies.

Time to invest in some flared denim, crochet crop tops and a suede, fringe jacket for the ultimate Almost Famous look. Chunky, platform sandals, clogs and fringe loafers are you new shoe essentials to get the look.

Camel, burnt orange, navy blue and cream are your go-to colours and make sure you have a suede skirt and stripy top to hand for an effortless ode to the era of Disco, Led Zeppelin and Jimi Hendrix.

BLOG_USE

Wear some Princeton platforms with a pair of high waisted denim flares, a sleeveless turtleneck and a fringed kimono, a perfect look for night out or a dinner with friends.

Pair your ghillie lace up Wild Thing heels with a button down black pinafore and a stripy long sleeve tee for shopping trips or a casual day at work.

To fully embrace the look, a pair of clogs is a must have, pair the Wildwood Clog with some flared ankle grazer jeans and a denim shirt, go double denim.

The Seventies are well and truly back, we have borrowed our parents vinyl, said goodbye to our skinnies and hung up a dream-catcher to channel our inner Joni Mitchell.

Peace and love baby!

adidas Supercolor Live event @ West Reservoir

Tuesday, April 7th, 2015

On Thursday 2nd we headed to the adidas Originals x Pharrell Supercolor Live party to celebrate the launch of this amazing collection and rub shoulders with adidas’ biggest fans.

We spotted Example and sneaker bloggers sampling the great food and taking in the great views across the reservoir where a huge Supercolor sound stage was lit up in spectacular style.

blog

The people who were lucky enough to nab themselves a pair of Supercolor Superstars were there showing them off, which was great to see how people were styling all the different colours.

The performance of the evening was unfortunately not Pharrell but music was provided by the atmospheric sounds of Koreless on the decks. Accompanied by a terrific light show across the reservoir, it was visually delightful.

Selected colours of the adidas Originals x Pharrell Supercolor Superstars are still available online & in store.

Save the Date – Occasion

Tuesday, March 31st, 2015

This time of year brings a feeling of excitement and slight dread as our calendars start to fill up with Spring/Summer occasions.

Whether its prom, a wedding, a day at the races or dinner with the extended family, the question we all ask ourselves is…what an earth am I going to wear!?

occasionGet your inspiration from the catwalk and celebs this season, think Easter colours, powder pink, baby blue and soft yellows with metallic touches.

Prom, is all glitz and glamour, films like Grease, Pretty in Pink and She’s All That are your go to for ideas, take inspo from 90’s colour palettes and 50’s silhouettes. Oversized tulle prom skirts and 2 piece dresses are taking over from your classic body-con and satin evening gowns.

Go big with accessories and add a statement jewelled clutch and make sure your date gets you a larger than life corsage.  Wear some ghillie, lace up Parisian’s with your ankle length dress or skirt to show off your stand-out shoes and freshly painted toes.

SHOP PROM

 

Weddings, they seem to all happen all at once, meaning you need a few outfit options because the guests may cross over and we cant bear the thought of being seen in the same outfit. Shoes can be your staple, work around those and pick a metallic or a neutral shade that can go with most outfits. A simple shift dress in a bold colour looks great with the single sole Saintly sandal, minimal and chic, this look is fail-safe.

If dresses aren’t your thing, a tailored jumpsuit or smart co-ord is lovely paired with a pointed heel like the Phoenix and accessorized with an oversized clutch (which can handle camera, confetti, tissues, make-up and possibly some flip flops to change in to after hours on the dance floor)

When you are lucky enough to be supermodel tall then heels may not be your first choice. Show off your long legs with some wide leg palazzo pants, a cami and a metallic Oscar sandal.

SHOP WEDDING

 

Ladies day at the races always calls for OTT glamour and similar to a wedding you can opt for a nice cocktail dress or a smart co-ord but the outfit is definitely all about the shoes and the hats. You can either go all out with some skyscraper platforms like the Palma and wear with a girly dress or skirt or keep things understated with a kitten heel like the Windsor and some tailored high waisted trousers and a sequin tee.

SHOP FOR RACES

Whatever the occasion, look at it this way – an excuse to go shopping for new things. Once you have got the shoes right, the rest is easy.

Goo Goo for Ghillies

Monday, March 30th, 2015

The shoe trend that is dominating Spring fashion and a on the feet of every blogger and member of the fash pack has to be the ghillie lace up. We are going crazy for this feminine style and we are loving it in all forms, stilettos, pointed flats, chunky mids and summer ready sandals.

This flattering style is a great transitional shoe, taking you from your winter ankle boots into your summer sandals.

blog

Wear your Odessa sandals with some tailored, ankle grazer trousers, a logo t-shirt and a long kimono jacket for work or shopping days with the girls.

The chunky mid heel Wild Thing will look great with some acid wash mom jeans and a cropped shirt for casual evenings out and first dates.

For the ultimate stand-out ghillie style, then the Parisian or Popsicle stilettos are your going out wardrobe’s new bestie. Wear yours with a classic LBD or a nice co-ord suit set for weddings and days at the races.

Birkenstock: How to Wear

Monday, March 23rd, 2015

It was a huge trend last summer and its set to be even bigger this year, the classic Birkenstock is a must have sandal for your wardrobe.

This “geekish” style that was once favoured by crazy art teachers and embarrassing dads is now a member of the fashion elite, with celebs, style icons and bloggers going mad for this simple sandal.

Birkenstock

Wear the two strap Arizona sandal with some distressed boyfriend jeans, an oversized Oxford shirt and a long cardigan for lunches out and shopping days. The holographic pair look fab with some tanned pins and a summer dress for days in the park.

Pair your one strap Madrid sandal with some skinnies and a logo tee and a leather jacket for work or drinks with friends.

The toe thong Gizeh and heel strap Milano sandals are great for holiday, wear yours with some raw edge denim shorts and a smock cami for walks on the beach.
