My 6 Favourite Summer Shoes Of The Moment

A few of you have shown some interest in my summer shoes that I’ve been sharing lately, either on Instagram or the blog, so I thought I would do a blog post dedicated to my 6 favourite summer shoes of the moment! My wardrobe is probably about 80% autumn/winter footwear due to living in England, so when it comes to the hot months, I usually stick to a few select styles that I know I love. Since I am only featuring 6 here, I couldn’t include everything (obviously) and I have only chosen shoes that are still available to buy as there’s no point talking about a specific pair that I love and it’s not available. However, if I was going to do that, it would be about my RAYE Ava Sandals and my Dolce Vita Karlo Slides which I often wear in my outfits. Now these are in no particular order, I like them all equally, so don’t take their arrangement as a ranking, so let’s get to it! Rebecca Minkoff Mika Mules First up is my Rebecca Minkoff Mika Mules in Peony Pink. You have seen these two times (here and here) on the blog already, and there’s soon to be a third outfit as well! I got them last month and since then I’ve fallen head over heels in love with them. They’re comfortable (I just need a plaster on my little toes to stop the rubbing on my EDS skin) and they are so sleek, minimal, chic, classy… The list is endless! The blush pink shade is also perfect for this season as it’s so subtle…

Golden Goose Deluxe Brand Superstar Women’s Sneakers Review

Golden Goose Deluxe Brand Superstar Women’s Sneakers Review I’m doing a review on the Golden Goose Deluxe Brand Superstar sneakers! I have the women’s silver and white classics and absolutely love them! I’ve spoken about the brand before and you’ve seen them on my Instagram numerous times, as well as in my Stutterheim rain coat outfit, so here is the review for you! Golden Goose Deluxe Brand was founded by Francesca and Alessandro Gallo’s shared love of fashion and art. They work with traditional Venetian tailors, combining traditional Italian craftsmanship with a cool, contemporary sensibility and their cult distressed sneakers is what they are most know for. If you haven’t heard of the brand before, you’re going to love it! The Sizing Those of you who read my blog regularly will know that I’m between a 39 and 40 in shoe sizes, or a UK 6 to 7. I generally find UK and US shoes run bigger, which is why I take a 39, and European shoes run smaller, so I’m generally a 40. Since Golden Goose are an Italian brand, I took my usual Italian size of 40 and they fit me perfectly! I would say they are a similar size to Balenciaga in sneakers, if that helps! So whatever your usual European shoe size is, go with that. Or if you’re between sizes, go with the size up like I did. The Comfort I’m usually really picky with sneakers and flat shoes because I have sensitive skin on my heels, meaning I often get blisters, so I was a bit wary of how comfortable these would be. I…

Arabel Manners – Shoes For Ladies Who Need Larger Sizes

Arabel Manners – Shoes For Ladies With Bigger Feet I was recently introduced to the brand Arabel Manners and was quite excited to be able to share something different with you! I don’t know if there’s any ladies out there reading this with larger feet, but if there are, definitely pay attention to this shoe brand! Arabel Manners is an up and coming footwear designer and caters for sizes 41-45 across the whole collection. In UK sizes that’s an 8-12, so for anyone with larger feet (Paris Hilton, check them out!) you no longer have to wear men’s shoes or suffer the pain of squeezing into the largest size you could find which happened to be too small. The Arabel Manners label cares so much about unique and special designs, functionality, comfort and style. The collection was designed to leave customers with the sense of individuality, prestige, and the sense of having desired footwear. Combining sophistication with hand craftsmanship, the colouring of each shoe is done to perfection, and only using quality materials. So how did the brand come about? Arabel Manners (the brand) was born when her mother, a large shoe buyer, was frustrated that luxury footwear in her size was not accessible in the same way, compared to if she was a slender U.K size 5. She was always made to feel second best when walking into a luxury footwear store as her size was never catered for. The brand is built with emotion and creativity at the heart of each shoe design, so you never need to feel self conscious. When I was younger, I would regularly…

10 New Must Have Golden Goose Superstar Sneakers

Image courtesy of Fashionedchic.com 10 New Must Have Golden Goose Superstar Sneakers One of my latest obsessions is Golden Goose Deluxe Brand. They were founded in 2000 after merging the creative spirit of Francesca Rinaldo and Alessandro Gallo in Italy. Over the years, they have grown into a huge designer brand with flagship stores all over the world, and it’s one that many fashion lovers are drawn to. I’ve known about Golden Goose for years and I would often check out the collection on Luisaviaroma as they always had an amazing selection, but I never ended up getting any because I always thought they were quite expensive and looked too similar to Converse, so they were always shoes that were just in the back of my mind. Adam was the one who originally loved the brand a few years back and he actually got his first pair of their Superstar sneakers last year, which was what inspired me to look into them more. Having seen his in person and seeing how each pair of their shoes is completely unique because they’re handmade in Italy – I was more intrigued. As the Golden Goose Superstar Sneakers are pre-distressed and made to look used and abused, they are all hand done so there’s no two pairs alike. Some have much more abrasions and dirt than others, so there’s a whole spectrum. If you’re choosing in person, it might be a good idea to ask to see a few of the same shoe and choose, but if you’re ordering online, you have to hope you get a good pair! The pair of sneakers that…

Balenciaga Race Runners Purple Prune Sneakers Review

Balenciaga Race Runners Sneakers in Prune Purple Review You recently just saw my Balenciaga Race Runners in this outfit post, in which I said I would be doing a review on them for you soon, so here it is. I originally bought these at Farfetch as I had a decent discount code so could afford them finally! I’m sure a lot of you are familiar with the Race Runners as they are one of the brand’s most famous shoes, combining Demna Gvasalia’s signature touch with a dose of urban glamour. They feature panels crafted from metallic leather, while the mesh and elastic are united by a chic purple colour palette. The streamlined sole disguises a wedge heel – perfect for giving your legs that extra boost they need as well! So, my review on these sneakers is below and I’m sure you can tell that I absolutely love them! The Sizing I found these Balenciaga Race Runners to run quite small in comparison to how US or UK shoes fit. But very true to size for a European brand. As an example, in the UK and US, I’m always a 39 most of the time, but in European shoes, I’m regularly a 40. I took a 40 in these and they actually fit quite snug and just right. There’s no way I could have fitted into a 39 at all, so go with your normal Italian size or size up one if you’re used to the normal UK and US sizes. If that helps? I was quite surprised with how small they run though as I’m never usually a tight…

Hunter Rain Boots Starcloud Wellies in Neptune Glitter Review

Hunter Rain Boots Original Tall Starcloud Wellies in Neptune Ok, so I don’t even know where to begin with these, but I will try! Have you ever dreamed up your favourite pair of shoes or a bag that you wished would be released as it was your ultimate, must have piece? Then you got annoyed trying to find something that comes close to your vision and it just doesn’t exist? Well that’s kind of what happens to me. I always want something that doesn’t exist and then not long after, it becomes a trend and is available (much like my love of velvet, basket bags and coral). Talk about Truman Show, right? Well my dream rain boots had always been a sapphire shade with glitter! In fact, it was only a couple of months ago that I was talking to my friend about my dream pair of Hunter wellies and they were a sapphire gloss blue, filled with glitter, so they reminded me of the galaxy, but subtle enough to be worn without being flashy… The Starcloud Collection About 2 weeks ago, I was on the Hunter Boots website and what was brand new in? These! I did a double take on them thinking they surely couldn’t have read my mind and released wellies that I had been dreaming of? But they did! Hunter brought out a galaxy inspired collection called Starcloud and they actually have 3 different colours available (see below) and a style with buckles! I saw this particular rain boot first, the Original Tall Starcloud in Neptune, but I was also gravitating towards the green as they…

Jimmy Choo Romy 100 Glitter Shoes Review

Jimmy Choo Romy 100 Glitter Shoes Review I’m really excited to be sharing this review with you right now! I have fallen in love with these shoes and couldn’t wait to share them with you! These are the Jimmy Choo Romy 100 in Peacock Glitter and they’re literally one of the most sexiest and prettiest pair of shoes I have seen. I’m hoping the photos do them justice, but they don’t capture their beauty in real life as well unfortunately, but I’m sure you can see just how sparkly they are! They are part of the AW17 collection and feature the classic pointed toe and stiletto heel that the Romy is known for. This pair is in the blue ombre glitter, called Peacock, with a metallic blue heel and leather piping details. They’re of course made in Italy and are a one of a kind shoe, which I simply cannot fault, so here they are! I hope you enjoy my review and if you’re here because you’re looking to buy these shoes, I recommend them! I’d hurry with the purchase too as I know they keep selling out on most places and are only available online in two different stores now, which I’ve linked just below! My Rating: Fit – 9/10 Style – 10/10 Glitter – 10/10 Colour – 10/10 Quality – 10/10 Appeal – 10/10 Comfort – 8/10 Buy these Jimmy Choo shoes online at Matches here & Farfetch here The Design & Quality Jimmy Choo did an absolutely fantastic design with the Romy! It comes in numerous heel heights (most commonly the 85 and 100) and the shape…

Joules Wellibob Ankle Rain Boots in Dog Print Review

As it’s my birthday next week, one of my friends (the same friend who bought me the Hunter Coral Wellies last time) wanted to buy me a present and one of the items I had been eyeing up for a while was a pair of the Joules Wellibobs. I’ve been a fan of the Chelsea ankle boot wellington since last year as they’re so easy to wear for running errands. They’re not bulky or cumbersome in any way, and they’re cute! Since I was allowed to have these Wellibobs in Dog Print early (just as well, it’s been raining every day!), I wanted to share a review with you and help any of you out that are looking to buy a pair of ankle wellingtons. Joules Wellibob Ankle Rainboots Rating: Comfort – 8/10 Style/Print – 9/10 Size – 9/10 Ease of wearing – 10/10 Waterproof Protection – 9/10 Price – 10/10 Buy Joules Wellibobs at Amazon here & Debenhams here Comfort – I gave these an 8/10 purely because they’re incredibly soft, roomy, and spongy on your feet, so they’re very comfortable to walk in, and I would have given them a 10, however when you don’t wear socks that are long enough to cover your ankles, the rubber on the elastic inserts rubs against your ankles and creates blisters. I found that out on Saturday when I wore them around town, but luckily I took longer socks with me. They will be fine for quick use with low cut socks, but if you’re planning on wearing them for a longer period of time, longer socks are needed to prevent…
