It’s funny where you find inspiration. Yesterday I posted a picture on Facebook of me and my dog from the mid-80s and was struck by the Clarks navy T-bar Mary Janes I was wearing in the photo. I remember my mum always insisting that I wore well-fitting school shoes – which I hated at the […]Read more "The Jesus and Mary Janes"
I don’t usually do two posts a day but I have to tell you about this. You all know I am a teeny tiny bit obsessed with Grenson. Well, this brilliant brand has donated 10 pairs of shoes to Trekstock, a charity supporting young people with cancer. Trekstock have hidden the shoes in some of […]Read more "Grenson x Trekstock #smallsteps shoe hunt"
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.

Don’t come here looking for bargains; this is the place […]Read more "chic shoe website alert!"
*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 that some of the most frequent compliments I get on my own shoes are for the Office two-tone pumps in […]Read more "block party"
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 (LAZY!). Anyway, not only does it share the name of my childhood musical obsession – The Jacksons – but it […]Read more "can you feel it?"
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 high end shoes that I can’t afford. The label I keep coming back to recently for a lunch time swoon […]Read more "in your dreams"
