Etsy finds: vintage platform shoes

Any of these would be amazing – of course none of them fit me…

70s golden platforms, £77

70s does 40s platforms, £48

40s platforms, £80

green 30s platforms, £69

Swedes + Swedes = clogs for everyone

What happens if a Swedish fashion retailer – H&M – collaborates with a Swedish cult shoe label – Swedish Hasbeens? Seventies inspired clogs and wood sandals at affordable prices. The new collaboration will be in stores on 20 April with prices starting at £35. I’m a big fan of the Hasbeens but can’t really afford their £100 + price tag so this is one designer-highstreet combo I’m really looking forward to.

Who would have thought: Flip Flops make nice shoes

I don’t ever wear flip flops, in my opinion they are acceptable beach wear and acceptable on beaches only. So I was rather surprised when I came across these really lovely ice skate-like shoes – aptly called Ice Princess – and realised they are Flip Flops. I take it all back!

Reader give-away: £60 voucher to spend on Sarenza.co.uk

A while ago I entered a competition on new online shoe shop sarenza.co.uk to win a trip to Paris. I didn’t win but as a thank you for all of you who voted, I’m now giving away a £60 voucher to spend on shoes at sarenza.co.uk!

They’ve got a sale on at the moment so you should find yourself a great pair. I really love these classic, black Chelsea boots from the Continental Fashion Findings range, very simple and unfussy, but they’ll never go out of style and have that Sixties feel that I love. Naturally they aren’t cheap, I really always do like the most expensive things…

To enter the competition and get to spend £60 on a pair of shoes of your choice, please comment under this post and explain why you deserve to win a pair of Sarenza shoes. The most creative and convincing entry will be picked by me  at midday on Monday 9 August.

Good luck!

Fashion findings: electric blue loafers

Sarenza, an online shoe shop, asked me to have a look at their Continental Fashion Findings collection and choose a shoe I like. Well, I sure as hell love tasks that involve a) shoes, b) shopping and c) freebies!  Plus I shall be mentioned on the Sarenza blog with a chance to win a trip to Paris…

UPDATE: You can now vote for me on the Sarenza blog

As I have plenty of wedges and heels I decided to look for flats and instantly liked these blue loafers by Eden. The electric blue and faux snake skin leather are a nice twist on such a classic shoe shape and look pretty cool teamed with my favourite Sixties mod dress. They even match my vanity case – perfect!

Rivieras is en vacances pas n’importe où

I seriously love these shoes by Rivieras.

I’m only happy when it rains

I’ve been toying with buying these Vivienne Westwood for Melissa blue boots for ages but was never sure if I’d actually wear them. Or what with. However I saw an amazingly dressed girl wearing these in red yesterday and can’t stop thinking about them now.
