Tuesday Shoesday ~ I finally found the ideal summer wedges!

Do you remember that last month I was on the hunt for the ideal pair of summer shoes? Although I managed to pick up a pair of comfortable mint-green wedges from the carboot sale, I wasn’t any closer to getting my ‘ideal’ pair that I discussed in this blog post. My requirements are a pair of […]

Tuesday Shoesday ~ Summer footwear

Last week I spent ages searching online for the perfect pair of summer shoes – something that would go with bare legs and pretty dresses – in a colour that would be neutral enough to look good with a whole range of prints and colours and could be used later on in the year too. I […]

Tuesday Shoesday – Super shoes at the Superbowl

I really enjoyed Superbowl XLVII this year, not only for the football (how long is an American football game?! seriously!) but because I was looking forward to the half-time show. And not only because Beyoncé was singing (and it was intriguing to see whether she would be singing live after admitting to miming at the Presidential Inauguration last week), […]

Tuesday Shoesday – Breathing a new lease of life into your pale summer shoes – DIY shoe dyeing

If you’ve recently got married, or have been a bridesmaid, or have simply bought some pale summer shoes, maybe you’d like to extend their wearable life by dyeing them?! Often pale shoes get pretty messed up after a day of walking around churchyards and dancing on a sticky dancefloor, so are pretty unwearable after a wedding! I fancied […]

Tuesday Shoesday – Tippy-tappy-toes

If you haven’t already seen this trend, it’s literally everywhere this month – just flick through any of the gossip weeklies & fashion mags, or nip into any high street shop and you’ll spot it straight away. I’m talking about toe caps – and not just the blind-you-as-you-walk-by silver ones – toe caps in all colourways are the […]

Tuesday Shoesday – Metallic trend on the X Factor

This year’s X Factor kicked off this weekend and I’m excited because this, for me, signifies the run up to Christmas! Only 126 sleeps to go! Anyway, I’m also pleased to have the X Factor back on our screens because it’s a great showcase of the latest fashion trends each week. I’ve concentrated on the […]

Tuesday Shoesday – The SEVEN INCH stilettos

Can you believe the dizzying heights that shoes are now reaching?? These killer heels are a full seven inches at the heel! They are slightly more wearable than other stilettos due to their massive chunky platform, but as a girl who struggles walking in anything over 4 inches, I think I’ll stick with my ballet pumps […]

Tuesday Shoesday – Summer sale shoes you can wear this Autumn!

Time to celebrate – not only have the London Olympics started but also this year’s Summer sales have begun early! The dodgy weather has been blamed for a poor turn-out on the high street and therefore stores are starting their Summer sales to pull in the punters and that means there’s lots of footwear bargains to […]

Tuesday Shoesday – Crazy footwear & a sports-shoe update!

After seeing my post last Tuesday Shoesday one of my readers got in touch with another über-glam sports-shoe photo, and here it is: high-heeled ice-skates! I have enough trouble staying upright on ice-skates as it is (or staying upright in high-heels too, for that matter!) so I think I’ll pass on a pair of these stiletto […]

Tuesday Shoesday – Making your favourite shoes last

Last week I took my trusty old dancing shoes to be reheeled. I don’t know why I’ve been putting it off (actually, I do know why – the price!) but they have been waiting for new heels since one plopped off just before Christmas. They have been out of action ever since, apart from a couple […]

Tuesday Shoesday – My special birthday shoes

I was delighted to be given a “shoe fund” by my mum for my birthday in December and have spent the last month looking for a suitable candidate for the role of ‘my special birthday shoes’. As you may remember, I started off looking for red shoes but with the massive choice of pretty shoes […]

Tuesday Shoesday – The Invasion of the Killer Heels

‘A Modern Torture’ is how Polly Vernon describes the wearing and ‘Invasion of the Killer Heels’ in The Times Magazine on 22.10.11. It’s an excellent article to read, with graphic illustrations of famous women falling off their high heels in public. Here’s a summary of the article: “High-heeled shoes used to be tricksy but ultimately […]
