Party Season Flats

Tuesday, November 17th, 2015

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.

Metallic uppers are still very much on trend this year, smarten up jeans and polo with our Vibe Loafers in futuristic gun metal or elevate a plain jumpsuit with our nineties style Rave Monk Shoes.

For the refined ladies out there our dainty Royal Slippers in suede or our Limelight loafers look great with a full skirt and cashmere jumper.

For boyish charm opt for some hard wear like our Lex Side Zip in 70’s tan or Rumble Front Zip in glossy black.

Our selection should put you one step ahead of the party game this year.



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!


Big Eyes Little Soles 5th Birthday

Tuesday, October 20th, 2015

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.





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.


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.

Superstar Girls: adidas Originals x Anti Agency Superstar Party

Friday, January 16th, 2015

On Tuesday night we were lucky enough to head down to the adidas Originals store in Carnaby Street to attend the Superstar girls party, marking the 45th anniversary of the Superstar trainer.

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.




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

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!

The Party Survival Guide

Thursday, November 13th, 2014

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)






Girls Night Out

Friday, November 7th, 2014

Finding the perfect shoe for going out-out with the girls can be tough especially when it is hard enough deciding what clothes to wear.

To help get you in the party mood and ready for the weekend, the girls in OFFICE HQ have selected their top statement shoes for the season that will go perfectly with your glam outfit.


Points are the go to style and a wardrobe staple for winter. Wear a vampy style like the Strobe or Scorpio with a low backed dress and a fluffy clutch bag for the ultimate screen siren look. Your fail-safe is the On Tops pointed stiletto, with a rainbow of colours available you can have a pair to match every outfit.

If you prefer a more minimal shoe but a stand-out outfit then the Salvation sandal or Sophia are the ideal accompaniment to a sequin dress.

Make a statement with a glittery Sapphire platform sandal with jewel detailing. This style is best paired with a simple, one colour look to make the shoes really stand-out.





Fabulous Flats

Wednesday, November 5th, 2014

With party season about to kick off, we are all hitting the shops trying to find the perfect outfit to wear to the office Xmas party and all the other formal events we are sure to be attending this winter.

Finding the shoes to match the outfit is always tricky but our motto is to start with the shoes as its much easier to dress from the bottom upwards.

Not all ladies are keen on a pointed stiletto or a skyscraper platform and especially the taller girls who don’t want to tower above all their friends. You can still be just as fabulous in a pair of glam flats and we have selected our favourite statement pumps to get you in the party mood.



If you favour plain coloured outfits with little fuss, you can make a statement with you shoes, adding a pop of colour, texture or premium finish. Pair an LBD with a pair of pointed metallic and pony-skin Vibe Loafers for a minimal, 60’s look.

For a more boyish look, wear an oversized sequin tee with some smart, black cigarette pants and stand out with a pair of leopard print Virtue Monk Shoes or some studded Vaughan Lace Ups.

For slightly more dressed down events in a casual bar or restaurant, add a flash of metallic or patent with the Verse Loafer or Karmen Ballet pump and match with some ripped, turned up jeans and a pastel, cashmere jumper.

For the girly girls who love a cami and a prom style tulle skirt, the zebra print Kwik Step Slipper and silver Vixen Point are the perfect accompaniment, adding a touch of ballerina elegance to a classic party look.





House of Vans: Launch Party

Friday, August 8th, 2014

Last night we had the hottest ticket in town to the exclusive launch party to the House of Vans London in Waterloo. This amazing space is a creative hub for artists, musicians and skaters and some of the biggest names came out in support for this exciting new venue.

The OFFICE HQ gang got to hang with Steve Van Doren, the son of Vans co-founder Paul who was more than happy to show us around and chat about the iconic brand. The legendary Z-Boys Tony Alva and Christian Hosoi were there showing off their skills and enjoying the incredible music acts that performed throughout the night. These included Dinosaur Jr, Tempa T, Roots Manuva and the hip hop giants Public Enemy.


As you walk in, you are greeted by a huge hall full of artwork and creative installations and at the back is the unique Vans lab which will play host to 4 artists at a time to create their work and eventually display in the art hall.

There is a a cosy cinema which will showcase a range docu-films and private screenings, a room with cabinets full of old Vans memorabilia, an 850 capacity music hall and of course the huge subterranean skate park.

Skaters can book a 2 hour skate/BMX session at for free and enjoy everything the venue has offer, including the in-house restaurant.

Last night was a true testament to the Vans ethos as the atmosphere was exciting, friendly and chilled and the venue proved itself as a great hub for anyone and everyone.
