Blahnik

“Hi. It’s Carrie Bradshaw. I wanted to let you know that I’m getting married. To myself. I’m registered at Manolo Blahnik. So thanks. Bye.”  

A Devoted Miss Dior

It is no secret that Christian Dior stole my heart in 2016 with just about everything! From the Lady Dior I always dreamed of carrying, to the shoes I shall wear to my sisters wedding… I really have been the luckiest gal this year and a devoted Miss Dior. I recall the moment quite vividly; I was on a break at work when my sister called. Elle was in Paris on a surprise birthday trip… I had to tell her I only had a few minutes and she had to tell me that she got engaged the day before. I was oh so happy for them! But the biggest question we both had was, what shoes will we wear?! We both chuckled and whilst Elle recounted her magical Parisian moment, I grinned so much it hurt and then went back to work. That was eighteen months ago. Six months ago, after endlessly searching through Net-A-Porter, Jimmy Choo, the Manolo Blahnik store in Burlington Arcade and refreshing Roger Vivier on Luisaviaroma, I found the perfect shoes, new …

Chanel Slingbacks

I purchased my first pair of Chanel shoes back in January 2012, they were the two-tone classic flat in lambskin leather and I felt like a princess! There is something about Chanel that I am obsessed with. I adore the heritage, the classic yet contemporary style and the chic vibes. I am all about investing in key fashion accessories that are timeless and I feel Chanel is the perfect avenue to go down when it comes to investment pieces. When I was in London a few weeks ago, the suede slingbacks were out of stock and so I didn’t think I would manage to score a pair. About a week later I called a few boutiques in London but couldn’t quite nail down a re-stock date from an assistant. Luckily, I have a connection from the Manchester boutique in Selfridges and dropped her an email. My name was added to the waiting list and just four days later I got THE call! From my experience with my other pairs of shoes from Chanel, I knew I …

Fall Footwear Edit

Now that September is coming to a close, I assume this late summer is going to conclude, so it’s that time again- to initiate the discussion of fall footwear! As much as everyone else adores summer, I prefer autumn and so my fall favourites have been unboxed once again. My Chanel sandals have been gently stored away and the boots and loafers are back. The first shoe that is essential for fall is a boot. I love this take on a classic, the Chelsea boot in burgundy leather. These are from Jones; I purchased them two years ago for £120 however you can still get boots alike on the high street. The maroon leather was right on point then since burgundy was the colour of the season back in 2012, however I do think it is timeless for autumn and perfect paired with some slim fit denim. An ankle boot is very wearable and easy to dress up or down. The burgundy is an ideal alternative to black too. Second is the androgynous take on …
