Rainbow Bright

Some people welcome a dry day as the perfect opportunity to go for a long country walk or hang the washing outside on the line. Personally, I love it when it’s not raining because it means I can dip into my suede shoe collection – much neglected over the past few months for obvious meteorological … More Rainbow Bright

New Blue

If I’ve been quiet on the school-run shoes front recently it’s not because I’ve fractured a toe again and had to resort to flats, rather it’s because the persistent rain (it’s been wet weather, like, pretty much a year now) has limited me to my wellies, waterproof DC trainers (sneakers) or gold Kurt Geiger boots … More New Blue

Primark Pink

I don’t think this has ever happened before, but today I found myself dressed head to toe in one brand. Yes, I suddenly realised that my jumper, skirt, tights AND shoes were all bought at different times from (wait for it) Primark. Ooh the glamour! I’m not sure whether to be proud that my entire … More Primark Pink

Print Clash Fash

Since I’ve never been very good at wearing black, and in the name of eclectic fashion, here I’ve teamed my French Maid Dress by J.W. Anderson for Topshop with bright pink floral tights from Primark. They make my legs look like economy sausages, but hey, they go with my pink hair (which I’ve styled into … More Print Clash Fash

Snakes And Adders

I have a real thing for acid brights, and this fluoro yellow top-dress is no exception. It may be a couple of years old, and have cost about £4 from the Primark sale rail (yes, Primark has a sale rail!), but it still hits this season’s neon and sportlux looks, and was such a steal … More Snakes And Adders

Leopardprint Love

Friday’s school-run shoes are simply outstanding – to my mind at least! Dizzily high platform heels with leopard-print, furry ponyskin (or some such), they’re made by Deena & Ozzy and were bought in the Urban Outfitters pre-Christmas sale. For me it was love at first sight. Surprisingly, despite their height, they are both comfortable and … More Leopardprint Love

Monkey Business

Wednesday’s school-run shoes are some of my favourites: a pair of Irregular Choice turquoise felt heels splashed with red gingham bows and backs, they also incorporate three smiling ice-cream, strawberry and banana-hugging monkey trinkets on each shoe (of course)! The heels have thick red rubber tips, topped by graded transparent plastic, going from clear to … More Monkey Business

Krazy for Katrantzou

I am genuinely beyond stoked that I managed to get my hands on a Mary Katrantzou Balloon Dress from her Topshop collection. Just look at this work of art: it’s something other-wordly, of true beauty and colour, something seen in magazines or V&A exhibitions, not an item a mere mortal like myself in the suburbzzz could ever possibly … More Krazy for Katrantzou
