AW11: Bootie Love At Bertie

Few weeks ago I went to check out the new collection from Bertie at their London showroom and I think I have been dreaming about these boots ever since. As always the autumn/winter 2011 collection is very strong with lots of great designs in the boot department from funky booties to sleek knee-highs.

These beauties called Zenobia were my favourite as I just loved the brogue effect on a quirky ankle boot that also has a hiking boot vibe with the chunky laces and ski hook features at the top. As well as being available in brown they also come in black and are priced £125, I am not sure which ones I prefer more, I suppose black would go with more but the brown just looks more rugged.

My other love at Bertie has to be the wedge, they always do a great selection of heights, and I lived in my Victorian-style laced peep-toe booties until I stupidly fell over in them, and this season is no different. My favourites had to be these black pairs, first up the Provins, £119, a gorgeous wedge with contrasting leather and suede materials, which would look great paired with tights and a little black dress; and then there is the edgy Paulo B, £110, which works this season style the loafer in an ankle boot, super cute.


Bertie SS11: I Fell In Love With Sandia

These black booties had to come home with me...thanks Bertie!

I go to a lot of events, but normally I go in the name of my day job, well I have finally attended my first-ever blogger event. I know crazy right. But last night the lovely guys over at Bertie shoes invited me to a soiree in their Covent Garden, London store. I love shoes, so this was an event I was excited about, super nervous as well, but those nerves soon went when the lovely Joanna at Bertie made me feel so welcome, and said I could pick any shoe I wanted!!!

Yes, any style, it was heaven!

Well Bertie really has loads to offer this spring, and if like me you love wedges then you have to get down there, they have loads on offer.

My favourite, and the pair that came home with me, had to be the Sandia *top piccie* – black peep-toe laced wedges, with cut-out detailing to the heel – gorgeous. Not too high, got sex appeal, sporty, and they are in the softest leather, seriously I am in LOVE.

More than just the shoes, this was a great evening where I met some amazing bloggers. From the amazing Abi Marvel who always makes me smile, to finally meeting Bunni Punch and Spark Up The Fire who I kept seeing everywhere during Paris Fashion Week, to the adorable Jazzabelle, and the super friendly Bumpkin Betty and Danielle better known as , and I even ran into the lovely Sarah aka S.B.V on the tube home.

Lots of of my fellow bloggers went for the stunning Prespa wedge, with the burgundy shade been whipped off the shelf before I could snap its picture *squint and pretend the brown is red*. I love these, the large metallic buckles are divine, but I just know that at 11cm high, that is just too high for me.
