The BAFTA’s – Ladies in Red

Monday, February 15th, 2016

The Baftas were held last night at the Royal Opera House where the colour red was most definitely the colour of  the night and I’m not just talking about that carpet.  Passion red was seen all the way through, from the dress to the shoes to the accessories and even the lipstick.

Not only were these leading ladies sporting some serious sass, they were all showing us why strappy sandal heels and classic court shoes always work no matter the outfit.

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.

shoes

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!

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

shoe2

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.

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.
