Shoe Of The Day: Poisonberry by Kurt Geiger


That's the sound I made when I saw these 'Poisonberry' shoes on Kurt Geiger's website the other day. I'm not normally such a sickly sweet pink person (seriously, it does look a bit like indigestion medicine) but when I saw it with the flash neon yellow heel and mint green sole, I was bowled over.
Yeah, you feeling them? I'm really into the little flashes of neon that are coming in for Spring/Summer 13. I blame watching the Olympics and then bingeing on the DVD. As my friend Lesley says, "neon makes you go faster". Even in heels.

It's the detail on the heel as well that take these a step above, even in the black.
In a world where kitten heels are sneaking back in and people STILL think Crocs are acceptable, this design  delight is like a palate cleansing sorbet. I loves them.

Shoe Of The Day: Zoe by Miista

This is a bit of a cheat because I'm now selling these at work. But the main reason we are selling them is  because I totally fell in love with them when the Miista rep came to see us. This is like a piece of art on a shoe and I cannot wait for the weather to get a bit better so I can wear the ALL THE TIME.

Seriously. LOOK.
Each pair is different - the pair I love has slightly more of the blue tones (not THE Blutones) in them which will fit with more of my summer wardrobe. They're a bit of an investment at £114.99 but I reckon you'll get more wear from them than you think. Picture it - skirts, capri pants, massive sunglasses, an oh so casual but chic scarf that you managed to tie just right. Brilliant.

NES... Makes A Very Overdue Comeback

So you may (more likely, not!) have noticed that I've been VERY quiet of late. Well that's because being a stay at home mum and all that entails wasn't the cakewalk I thought it would be.

So I got myself a new job. Working for a local shoe shop as their online manager. It is possibly a job that was made for me and now that I've settled in a bit, I can get back to doing things that I love like blogging about brilliant shoes and snarking on awards season fashion. The Golden Globes are on Sunday and I will be all over the red carpet wins and fails like a rash.

In the meantime though, I'm back here and you can also find me over at Tinfish Shoes' blog where I'll be doing Actual Work but still some very fun stuff indeed.
