*holds hands up* OK, OK, this blog does veer towards the more masculine of shoe styles, I admit. So I reckon it’s about time I did a post on some fabulous feminine flats. Especially considering […]
Well I can’t quite believe that it’s taken me this long to discover this lovely little brand. Maybe it’s because the shop is in Notting Hill and I rarely go further west than Bond Street […]
Now and then, it’s nice to have a little lust after something you can’t have. No, I’m not talking about Daniel Craig in Skyfall (Mr Brogue will be relieved to hear that) but beautifully crafted […]
