The UGG-style sheepskin boot is not your friend, people. Fans of this aesthetically challenged style may cry “but they’re so WARM!” and “it feels like I’m wearing SLIPPERS!” but they must be one of the least flattering boots ever designed.

This week’s top website discovery is shoescribe.com. It’s not dedicated entirely to flat shoes, but I love the edit – lots of colour, nothing ugly (I’m often surprised just how many ugly shoes there are out there) – and the brands stocked are particularly cool.

The label I keep coming back to recently for a lunch time swoon […]Read more "in your dreams"

So how do you stay stylish on autumnal country walks in sturdy, practical footwear? These boots – by FitFlop – are pretty cool, right? Sometimes I […]Read more "en vacances"
If you have an interest in masculine shoes, chances are you also have a penchant for snazzy socks. I know I do. It’s all part of the look, right? A turned up jean to show a peek of colour really brightens a drab, foggy day like today. I’ve long been a fan of Gap socks. […]Read more "sock it to me"
