Barbie x Sophia Webster

Barbie x Sophia Webster

I’m a little giddy sharing Barbie’s latest collaboration as my favourite doll has teamed up with one of the UK’s most exciting footwear designers Sophia Webster, who just also happens to be one of my favs as well, and she has put together a full-on, pink party of pin-up styles for both adults and children. 

The Barbie by Sophia Webster collection is just pure fun, fusing both Webster’s charm, her signature perspex detailing and her use of slogans, I’m sending out good vibes to add her Barbie Doll flats to my collection, and maybe the glitter hi-tops – OK so I want it all!

V&A – Shoes: Pleasure and Pain

V&A – Shoes: Pleasure and Pain

So apparently one pair of shoes can change your life, well according to Cinderella. I understand that footwear can provoke intense feelings of desire and lust, we all have those killer heels on our wish-list, but can a pair of shoes really change your life? Well the V&A’s latest fashion exhibition, ‘Shoes: Pleasure and Pain’, is much more than just showcasing gorgeous heels, it delves into the transformation power of extreme footwear, as well as exploring the agonising aspect and euphoria of wearing shoes.

There is a lot to see, more than 250 pairs of shoes are on display across two floors, with some spanning from as early as 30BC, a delicate gold leaf decorated pair of sandals discovered in Egypt, to those Jimmy Choo feathered beauties that Carrie lost in Sex and the City.

Wedding Wednesday – Sophia Webster Bridal

Wedding Wednesday – Sophia Webster Bridal

I’m a huge fan of Sophia Webster’s humour, since hitting the scene she really has adding a lot of fun to the fashion and accessories market, and brides-to-be get ready as the fashion’s hottest footwear designer has put together a gorgeous collection for your big day, and to say that I’m a little jealous that they didn’t come out in time for my wedding is an understatement. 

Just like her mainline, there are slogans, I love ‘Wifey for Lifey’ so much that I’m considering getting them, well I am a wife after all, there are also some fun strappy fluffy pompom sandals, bejewelled beauties, and even her signature butterfly wing heels have been given an ethereal makeover, which can also act as your something blue.

Shoe Loving: Which Charlotte Olympia Kitty Are You? 

Shoe Loving: Which Charlotte Olympia Kitty Are You? 

I’m a lover of Charlotte Olympia, so much so I joined the gang recently with my first purchase – some gorgeous green beauties, but I think my heart will also belong to her Kitty flats.

Before you just had to choose a colour, I have the classic black on my wishlist, but now you can choose your personality with the new Kitty & Co capsule collection.

So are you feeling Clever, Pretty or in a Party mood? Or how about showing off your fun side in the Cheeky or Pouty Kitty flats. Or are you madly in Love, acting a little Hippy, or a totally Superstar? I love how each Kitty really does portray the personality perfectly.
