Shopping: Yeah The Kat Maconie Collection For Dune Is Finally Out

Back in March I shared the fab Kat Maconie collaboration for Dune, well nearly two months later they have finally hit the store, and with a weekend of sun under my belt I think I am going to need to invest in a pair of these flats.

I love the block heels, especially the ones with the Art Deco fan detailing, but these flats will see you through summer and will go with everything especially if you go for the black or the gold. What I love about these Soho Beach t-bar sandals has to be the combination of the adorable low block gold heel and the gold stud embellishments – seriously hot.

I really do think for £135, these glam flats will be the perfect day-to-night flats and in terms of a pay-per-wear ratio I really do think you will easily make your money back on them!!!

Now all I need to decide is black, hot pink or gold???

AW11 Press Day: Sorel Will Keep Me Warm

Things I love: being warm and shaggy boots!! Which means Sorel is like shopping porn!

I know with the sun shining it is hard to see why I am getting excited, but come winter you are going to love that I introduced you to this amazing brand. First up, the brand is Canadian, so come on if you need a nation who know about cold surely it is them, and what I didn’t know is that they launched back in 1962, which means they’ve been keeping feet warm for nearly 50 years!

For autumn/winter 2011, my favourite *top pic* has to be the Tofino, I love how Sorel combines keeping warm with style and rugged beauty, and these red ones are gorgeous. I can see myself wearing these in the snow for après-ski as well as with jeans and a parka, they have so much potential.

I also love the cool names that some of the boots have as well; you can wear ‘Joan of Arctic’, a modern classic; or how about ‘Cate the Great’, named after a Russian Empress and inspired by a pair of Creewinter moccasins – LOVE!!!!

Need more reasons to love Sorel? Did I mention that they have been seen keeping celebs Elle Macpherson, Gwen Stefani and Kate Hudson warm. Seriously cool brand.

Where to buy you ask?? Well head on down to Schuh, Office, or Sole Trader.

Which are you favourites?

Crush Of The Day: Ash Easy Low Top Trainer

OK, I love glam shoes, but you really can’t beat a comfie sneakers and I have found these beauties over at the new Ash online store.

These canvas trainers come in three colours, my favourite is the Chinablue above, but they also come in black and white. They will look perfect with jeans, a white summery dress or denim shorts – you will get serious use out of these gorgeous pumps, and not a bad price either at £55.

Trust me though you have to check out this site, from gorgeous studded boots, gladiator sandals, chunky clogs and wedges, Ash really does have a great collection.

I also love the amazing kids high-top range, I seriously want these buckled tie-dye ones to be available in an adult size!!!

Plastic: Barbie Is Model Perfect For Melissa

I love it when brands do something creative, and I am an avid fan of Brazilian brand Melissa shoes magazine, Plastic. Each issue always has gorgeous editorial spreads, which make me swoon, last issue it was all about Dita Von Teese, and this time around Katy Perry graces the cover but I am afraid that Barbie up-staged her with this glamorous photoshoot.

Barbie looks a doll in her designer wear, teaming her gorgeous gowns with tiny plastic shoes from the Vivienne Westwood and Jean Paul Gaultier collaborations. I am not sure if they are just for the shoot, but seriously these would fit nicely alongside Christian Louboutin’s shoe packs, Barbie is a very lucky girl.

I have to stress that all the pages in the mag are just as gorgeous, especially Katy Perry’s shoot – check it out Issue 4 here.
