We can’t wait for 51st State festival on at Trent Park on Saturday 7th August, where we will be reporting live, showing you the latest in festival style. So far this festival season we have seen the IT crowd go Old Skool in Converse, Reebok classics and Adidas Superstars. Wear your trainer of choice with ripped boyfriend jeans for a relaxed all day look or go for a vintage tea dress and Superstars combo for a new take on girly grunge.
The fun won’t just end at Trent Park though, look out for the after party at Ministry Of Sound. Hosted over four rooms featuring Roger Sanchez, Karizma, Spoony, Pied Piper, Norris Da Boss Windross, The Heatwave, DJ Cartier and many more, it promises to be an all-night party of house music’s finest.
What will you be wearing?

Party Season is in full swing and to aid your feet going from event to event it’s time to invest in a pair of glam flats. Taking inspiration from the pioneers of smart casual dressing Olivia Palermo and Alexa Chung, add a metallic brogue or suede loafer to see you through the Christmas season.
If you’re not the kind of girl who’d wear a pointed stiletto or a skyscraper platform you can still be just as feminine and fabulous in a pair of our statement flats. Dress down a silk maxi with a pair of patent brogues like Amber Heard, our Result Points come in classic black or autumnal burgundy.
If you find it hard to make the transition from work wear to formal wear why not try a tailored evening suit and match with a pair of croc loafers like our Rita High Cut for understated elegance.
Our selection should put you one step ahead of the party game this year.
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.
We are more than ready for the party and we hope to see you there!
On Thursday 15th we had the pleasure of being invited to the ultimate sneaker girl event, the Big Eyes Little Soles 5th birthday party.
Hosted by the gorgeous gang of sneaker loving babes and headed up by Big Eyes mama Yani, the party was a bloggers dream. The event was held at the super cool Oslo club in Hackney and there were treats galore inside (obviously catered to the girls!) #girlpower.
Once we walked in we were greeted by a nail station where nail art queen @lovebangnails painted our fingers with some cool sneaker inspired designs. Next to her was blogger and make-up artist @theplasticboy who made us look super glam with lots of glitter, sparkle and everything girly!
The main event was of course the set list, which had the crowd literally jumping with excitement. First to hit the decks was Benton, who got us all ready for Skream (queue screams!) and then finally Loefah to close the show.
The event was sponsored by Reebok, so naturally the Big Eyes girls were sporting their fave Reebok Classics. Also spotted on the dance floor were the Air Max 90 “Paris” from the Look of the City Dessert pack, some old school Air Max 95‘s and some classic Vans Old Skools.
We had such a great time with the girls, getting pampered and dancing the night away whilst wearing our fave sneakers (no sore feet over here!). To top it off we left with a cute goodie bag from Jason Markk which included a cleaning kit for our trainers. You can find Jason Markk product on our brother site OFFSPRING.
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.
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.

To celebrate the SS15 Superstar launch, adidas has teamed up with casting agency Anti-Agency to form a new girl gang of alternative models.
The trainer trend shows no signs of abating and with the creative help of a female-only studio, adidas Originals presents the new year’s big style movement, to celebrate the iconic footwear institution that is the Superstar.
There was live music from PANES as well as a DJ set from the amazing Neneh Cherry (mum to Tyson Mcvey from PANES!). Digifairy set up a booth where you could play around, making your own Superstar GIFs and the Meringue Girls provided special Adidas-themed sweet treats of pastel, mermaid like wonderfulness.
We already have got our pair of Superstars ready to take on 2015, the year of the SUPERSTAR.
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
If over Christmas you out did yourself and just want an early night and some good, clean fun then it’s always good to throw on your old reliables! 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!

We have had the outfit planned for weeks and the venue picked but we want to make sure we are totally prepped with all the tips and fixes to ensure we have the best time at the Christmas party.
We decided to ask the ladies of OFFICE HQ for their party tips for going out-out and little tricks they cant live without when dancing the night away.
1. Wear Bridget Jones pants at the start of the night, then carry a spare for later on when you want to ‘loosen up’ a little and let yourself go on the dance floor (our fave tip!)
2. Always carry some flats like the Butterfly Twists fold-able pumps in your bag for the end of the night
3. Spray your face with hairspray before you leave to seal your make up to your face, no more sweaty faces.
4. Never leave the house without mascara & lipstick
5. Pop some plasters in your bag, just in case you take an embarrassing tumble.
6. Schedule in regular loo trips with the girls throughout the night to have a gossip about guys
7. Always keep an eye out on anyone stuck in awkward conversation in the corner of the room – always nice to save a friend in need
8. Arrive fashionably late and leave at the peak of the party
9. Eye brightening eye drops, sting like hell but make your eyes dazzle! Pop in pre make-up.
10. On taxi journey home, make sure to divert via McDonalds or kebab shop (the ONLY way to end off a party night)
