You may be surprised to learn that my feet don’t enjoy wearing a formal flat shoe. It’s my heels; they are an odd shape, with bony ‘spurs’ that rub terribly on anything that isn’t a sandal or a boot. To my despair, these irritating protrusions would wear clean through the material on my beloved Adidas […]Read more "Fed up of hobbling? Try Hobbs."
Neon can be a tricky trend to wear. It says “look at me!” and “I’m a bit whacky!”, and reminds those of us old enough to remember of Timmy Mallett and questionable cycling shorts/crop top combos from Tammy Girl. I find neon far less scary in moderation; a fluoro necklace here, a pop of colour […]Read more "Kings of Neon"

And while it’s easy to find evidence of the trend in menswear, these double buckles are a little harder to find in a petite size 37. So I’ve done a […]Read more "funky monks"

Lights in the toes lead you home using GPS, and you even activate them by clicking the heels. Genius.Read more "There’s no place like home: GPS shoes"

These lovely desert boots with espadrille sole are by Penelope Chilvers. They’re super-cute, comfortable and make me feel like a particularly dandy mod. Not a […]Read more "she wore blue-ooo velvet (woah, woah)"
