"Nothing is thought rare Which is not new, and follow'd; yet we know That what was worn some twenty years ago Comes into grace again."

This autumn/winter, its all about equestrian style boots. Ride into the sunset with these beauties:

"Pay bills? We'd rather have new shoes, say women"

Very interesting statistics in the Daily Mail today with regards to les femmes and le footwear. Apparently....
  1. 10% of women have spent more than £1000 on shoes in the past 12 months (really? only £1000?),
  2. 25% of women are more likely to buy shoes than pay their bills (thats what men are for)
  3. 50% own more than 30 pairs of shoes (putting me in the 8% who own more than 100).

However, far more interesting were the 79% of women who have had sex wearing only their heels and the 55% whose boyfriends have had to carry them because their feet hurt?! So you can break his back and then get him on his back!

“Fashion condemns us to many follies; the greatest is to make ourselves its slave”

I love love love Gucci's high-heel pump, but aside from its pricetag, its not even available yet online. If you can't wait or you don't have the best part of £400 to part with, I've found a similar style at Nine West , called the 'Yarrow.'

Remember the pink Prada's from a few months back? Well for those of you still eager to get your hands on a high-street here!

"Fashion is architecture: it is a matter of proportions."

Fashion food-chain:

From Miu Miu, to Kate Kuba, to ASOS...get your hands on a pair for £35.

"About half my designs are controlled fantasy, 15 percent are total madness and the rest are bread-and-butter designs."

I fell in love with Stella McCartney's black satin high heel sandal on first sight, as I did with most things 'chain' related. Although I purchased numerous bracelets that were chunky chained and fabulous, as well as a dress with gold chain straps (very 1995), the trend managed to escape my shoe wardrobe. However, imagine my delight on seeing these sandals in the sale for £12! I'd had my eye on them for ages and lo and behold, I go away for 2 weeks and not only do they come into stock but they are reduced by a tenner! (available in black, white and fuschia)

"Fashions, after all, are only induced epidemics."

For anyone wanting to add a last bit of sailor chic to their summer wardrobe, Gina's 'Nadia' striped court shoe that was featured a while back is now in their special offers section, reduced from £295 to a more affordable £145 in most sizes.

"You, sir, I entertain for one of my hundred; only I do not like the fashion of your garments."

Another day, and another offering from ASOS. For a shinier alternative to Gina's 'Lara', have a butcher's at Bronx's leather patent lattice peep toe at ASOS, available in black or natural for £50.

“I dress for the image. Not for myself, not for the public, not for fashion, not for men"

I'm back! Sorry for slacking lately...I got back from holiday last week and it's taken me a week to get myself sorted out again! Anyways, I've had my ever watchful eye on the lookout and I have lots of posts to come! First off, ASOS's glitter court shoe appears to take significant inspirtation from Miu Miu's silver glitter mary jane. I think I'm actually preferring ASOS's version as the high-street is awash with the Mary Jane style and I'm a bit sick of it already!

"We are shaped and fashioned by what we love."

Apologies for the total lack of posts recently but I've been busy trying to get together a summer wardrobe for my holiday. The shops are absolutely full of designer lookalike shoes. I seem to spend my whole time wandering round saying...oh my god they're exactly like Louboutin/Gina/Marc Jacobs...insert as appropriate! One of my favourite spottings were these Miu-Miu like sandals from Oasis called 'Sindy' available for £55. Mooching around on ASOS a few days later, however, I came across their glitter trimmed sandal, priced at £35. If you could somehow merge the two, with Oasis' jewelled detail and ASOS's black trim, you'd have a perfect pair of Miu-Miu sandals for a fraction of the price!
