Since returning from St. Lucia, my interest in a half exposed foot has gone into over drive. I blame it on my annual one eye on Spring in mid January thing. Although I will say that desire was there well before I left, evidenced by Exihibit A – the above photo that I instagrammed around November. The mule screams lady-like. It’s Sophia Loren in Italy (bare with me) and trust me, she got the power of a kitten heel. Currently mules are a match made in heaven with straight jeans
I’m tired of buyers remorse. It’s happened to me for years and my bending wardrobe rail keeps reminding me. With that rail in mind, I shop the sales more carefully. Will I really wear it? Is this something I lusted after at full price? Is this a classic piece that my wardrobe badly needed? These are the main questions. I’m sure you have your own. Above is a round up of a few justified wear now/wear later pieces currently on sale that can be layered with knits and coats now
If you haven’t got a pair of shoes for this month’s round of parties, these are the ones that caught my attention the most. I packed one pair of heels just in case we go out on New Years night. Beyond December, any of the above can be dressed down with straight, skinny or wide leg denim which personally I reckon makes them even prettier. &Otherstories velvet shoes &Otherstories suede slingback Topshop Risky metallic sandals – seventies throwback in pink Prada Velvet
Click through at your peril. Sounds like cheese but it’s true. As if Black Friday wasn’t enough, Cyber Monday swings around with another wave, but to be honest, this is your last chance for Christmas gifting deals before having to pay full price. This is my round up of stand outs with discount codes (a few are shown above but below is the full list): Stuart Weitzman 40% off their sought after boots!!! AllSaints – 30% off everything. Code: CYBER. Gift yourself or your other
Well it wouldn’t seem fair if I didn’t throw in some gift ideas for Christmas (yes – I still say Christmas versus holiday). Thought I’d kick off with my picks for your girlfriend or BFF. As usual, my rule of thumb is the same: pick what you would want for yourself. It works every time.

I have always had a thing for platform boots. It’s the nineties grunge itch. Doesn’t go away. It just hibernates for a couple of years then re-surfaces. I shoot people wearing them and say eff you to the theory that they make your feet look bigger – remember that 2013 post on that black pair? Vetements gets it (or have lost their God damn mind). They’ve elevated punk grunge to designer status with their clothing line and their current take on platform boots.
So much temptation is filing up the new arrivals section of online shops but here are some that stood out – operative word being some because it’s really double this number. I have the block heels (no.8) and let me tell you they are gorgeous in person and look way more expensive than they are – snapchat fam saw me trying them on. I just noticed that the above works as the perfect capsule wardrobe and it’s what I would assemble for someone if I worked as a stylist. Being
