Cutey - tooty

Its that time of year when the weather constantly changes; one minute its sunny, the next minute we've got freezing fog.  Keeping fashionably chic and warm is a constant compromise between living in my UGGs and freezing my toes off in a pair of heels.

So, these cute Milano ankle socks from Veneziana are the perfect way for me to wear my heels and stay warm this winter.  With their rose pattern these are far too pretty to hide away under a pair of boots.

Shoe of the week

Its time to buckle up and get those boots on, the cold snap is here!

Shoes in the news

Charity begins at home
I love all the recent stories of celebs donating their shoes to raise money for good causes. I'm struggling to give up a pair of Matalan shoes to Ebay, let alone donating them to charity!

Party on
Here are some great tips on saving your party feet this holiday season.

Shoe of the week

At this time of the year, there are just too many shoes to choose from for my shoe of the week.

This week's shoes from Kurt Geiger have a little bit of everything: platform, detail, mary-jane, killer heel and the orange colour is so hot.  I'm thinking of Christmas day with the family, wearing a chic grey jumper dress and these heels would be the perfect combination for the holiday season.

Getting 'leggy' with it

I've been given some more products from the lovely people at Veneziana.   This time, I've tried out the Beatrice leg-warmers.  Its been a long time since I've worn anything other than tights and its nice to have a change. Great quality, the sizing was perfect (even for plus size) and its nice to try something a little bit different from black opaque.  The pattern and effect is quite sheer, but they're also 40 denier so you've got the warmth too.

No sure what happened to the camera but I like the effect

Time to give those toes a workout

Have you heard? The latest surgery in America is for slimming down your tootsies!  For those suffering from 'toe-besity'  there's a surgical option to slim down those plump digits.

Now, I'm having visions of toe workout sessions with mini-weights the size of cotton reels, a bootcamp training session for those chubby little toes and Davina McCall releasing a work out DVD.   I say, leave those toes alone!

Shoe of the week

How sweet are these Kandee shoes? Their name Tutti Frutti sums up them up perfectly.  The best 'shoe candy' I've seen for a long time.  Forget a Christmas selection box, I want these wrapped up in a bow under my Christmas tree this year.  Now, I must start writing my letter to Santa . . .

Booty call

Its autumn, there are 42 days until Christmas and there are lots of lovely 'autumny' things to be bought.  I am in retail envy at my friends and family's recent shoe purchases.  Clarks have a fab boot collection and my Aunt J has recently treated herself to a pair of their Kildale Drama boots.  They are ticking all the right boxes - chic, practical, classic and a little bit of a buckle detail. Available at Clarks,

I've also posted a little Clarks' video to tempt your retail taste buds.

Time for Tweed

Its time for me to ditch the black opaque tights and spend that little bit more on hosiery.  I admit, I've been a lazy shopper for a while just grabbing tights while doing the supermarket shop.  While I've saved some pennies, I've worn products that comprised on quality and comfort.  I'm giving my legs a break and saying no more to scratchy, bland tights.  Since the lovely people at Veneziana have sent me some of their products to try out, I've had a re-think on quality over quantity and I've set myself an early New Year's resolution to make more of an investment in the products I want to wear.

The Tweed tights are really cute, grey with little dotted flecks of colour, they're perfect for Autumn. I dug out some T-bar shoes I've had for a couple of years to wear with them.  I wish there was a way I could re-create the texture and feel of the tights for you via the photos, they were so soft and lovely to wear.  I've fallen in love with these 60 denier tights, I'm simply dotty about them.

can you spot the dots?

Match made in heaven

Just had to post a picture of these new limited edition Adidas trainers (pictured next to my purple Louboutins as I need any excuse to get them out!)

I've always liked Adidas but when did trainers get so lush, they're too nice for boys!

Modern day cinderella alert

I had to post this picture, taken in a local pub this weekend.  A single shoe placed on a high shelf waiting to be claimed.

I'm assuming that the lost shoe is the result of one too many cocktails for the unknown Cinderella. Here's hoping her 'shoeless' walk to her carriage local taxi rank wasn't too painful or cold.  Maybe a Prince Charming gave her a piggy-back home at the strike of midnight.

I'm in, are you?

The IN Thing for Cancer Research is a fab way to have a girl's night and raise money for the charity.

November's one of those months when its quiet, the weather can be a bit pants and you really need to be saving for Christmas.  So instead of struggling with the cold weather and spending lots of money on cocktails, why not slip on your pjs, put on a face mask and have a party indoors with your friends while raising money.

I'm having a party with my family late November where we'll be wearing PJ's, having manicures, playing games and running quizzes and raffles so we can put our money in the charity pot rather than spending it at a bar.

We're in, are you?

Shoe of the week

I love these boots from Next.  If you watch Hart of Dixie, then these are the type of boots that Dr Zoe Hart would wear, probably with some peg trousers or a short playsuit and plenty of attitude.
