I am so sorry for my complete absence on the bloggersphere summer has just taken over, i had a wonderful week off in Paris and enjoyed the Rock en Seine festival (More about that in another post) my birthday and also the Eid! A very busy August!
So this post is LOOOOOONG overdue!
Anyone who knows me, knows i am a complete and utter shoe and bag hag. I think it's in every woman to be obsessed with shoes and bags. For me recently it's been a shoe thing and it's not just me, Shoe designers are getting some amazing recognition via online shopping and stores...here are some must have shoes from some must have shoe designers:
Not only does designer of the moment Simone have to die for ready to wear, she has also conquered the shoe market, with her quirky feminine style mixed with modern textures. Perspex heels, shoes, glitter and PVC.....What more do you want?!
Simone Rocha is available on Selfridges online and in stores, Net a Porter, The Corner and Browns in store and online.
I am so in love with Sophia Webster, who celebrated her shoe success with opening a pop up in Burlington Arcade. The shoes have been praised and worshipped by bloggers and of course celebrities....Rihanna has her own pair named after her.
Sophia Webster is stocked at Selfridges online and in store, Matches, Sophia Webster online store and Net-a-Porter
Master of the the ballerinas, Chanel keeps raising their shoe game every season. From ballerinas to espadrilles, what more do you need for your everyday shoes? Act 1 of AW is a sea of girly quilted perfection, staple shoes and winter/autumn essentials where as Act 2 is tough and edgy with everything being chain round....
Tehehe these are my 3 recent Chanel shoe purchases (the velvet pair were of my amazing boyfriend for my birthday as it is a Chanel first)
Chanel is available in stores and also Harrods and Selfridges.
This season Miu miu is all about big bows, big points, velvet, patent and cracked leather. Their runway shoes captures the brilliance behind the AW13 collection, polka dot girllyness meets Doc Martins durability a flash forward to the future with metallic, jewels!
Miu Miu is available online stores Net-a-Porter and Mytheresa. In stores at Harrods, Selfridges, Liberty and Miu Miu boutiques.
Queen on vintage cool Miss Charlotte Dellal takes her kitty love to a new level this season with the Kitty ankle boots and the sleepy kitty flats. Her theme this season is princesses and fairy tales. Quirky perfection.
Please can someone buy me the cute clutches and bags?! Charlotte Olympia is stocked at Harrods and Liberty. Online Net-a-Porter, Mytheresa, and Matches.
This season Mr Louboutin twists his classics with contrasting fabrics, mixing patent with felt, plastic with patent, and mixing his spikes up. Tough and bright combined for a winter of fun loubies high and low!
The queen of french cool just keeps delivering with her ready to wear and her shoes. Footwear for all shoe lovers of different height and styles. There are more texture mix up putting calf hair into her iconic bekkets and new sneaker style the Blossoms and the bluebells. With an impending collaboration with H&M looming, this collection will blow your AW socks off and will be shoe porn during fashion weeks! Of course i had to get my own pair to add to my growing Marant collection!
Online availability : Matches, Net-a-Porter and available in Selfridges, Harvey Nichols and Liberty.
Raf Simons has shown that he truly is the best fit for Dior championing fashion and Couture week and gaining a strong and young following, i am seriously cooing over these flats.....
What can i say about Balenciaga? wow.... amazing! With this being the release of the first collection under the creative direction of Alexander Wang the whole collection is highly anticipated. A few pieces from previous collections from Nicolas Ghesquiere....yep the cut out ceinture boots! These boots were top of my list since they were released last year and i was lucky to find a pair in Paris this week but a few different styles have been released too.
My sister trying the boots on at Liberty.
Eeeek i am so happy i have these now! It was a no brainer as soon as they were put on my feet in the Rue Saint Honorè store.
What is everyone's favourite style/ designer. Is there a brand you truly stick to whether it be high street or designer?
Thanks for reading
Lots of love
