Green 60s Platform Sandals

I love that there is a fusion of fashion decades taking place at the moment, from 1940s through to the grungy 90s - culminating from this, I am dying over some satin platform sandals (pictured below). They are perfect for a sizeably challenged 5ft 3" girl like myself. I am currently stalking these Topshop 60s influenced strappy numbers, I may treat myself next month, and will wear these with grey old man socks and a midi length skirt. At £65 the sandals won't break the bank!

The Coltrane Boot

Most Wanted:

So I know everyone has them, but I am officially obsessed with the Jeffrey Campbell Coltrane boots. What is not to love, in between the cut out sides, steel buckles and chunky sole, nothing says heavy duty glamour like this footwear, and you know what they are on trend with the grunge look that is everywhere this season. If you have more of a budget, you should check out the Balenciaga originals.

White Converse

I live in East London and I am now the owner of a pair of white Chuck Taylor high tops - it was only a matter of time. Once you get over the blinding bright whiteness of these shoes, they have quickly become a firm favourite. Both comfortable, functional and kinda stylish my new converse are adding a casual edge to all of my outfits. Here they are teamed with my tartan baggy trews. My Converse sneakers are anything but boring!!!

Leopard and Tartan Creepers

These are Underground x B Store creepers which I got from the sample sale which took place back in May 2013.

Hmmm, so these shoes really shouldn't work, but they totally do. Leopard print and houndstooth check are the perfect clashing materials and work for all seasons as far as I am concerned. I tend to wear these ankle height creepers with my black skinnies, but I am thing some black tights and t-shirt dress will be epic as well.

Black Studded Lace Ups

When I saw these lace up shoes, I was like BOOM!!! I don't know if they were influenced by something on the catwalks or developed by some savvy buyer at Topshop but they encapsulated every thing that is edgy and cool about London. The studded toe and buckle are resplendent next to the black grain leather upper.

I've donned these shoes with pretty summer dresses and lycra leggings - it all works. The best this about this footwear is that I got them in the sale for the bargainous price of £20. A-Maz-Ing!!!

Imma be creeping in my flatforms

I got these creepers from the Underground sample sale, a few months ago. What I love about these shoes is that they are a statement piece. When I wear these creepers people tend to do a double take or stare! The rose gold metallic leather is stunning and wears into a beautiful distressed colour, it also adds a subversive twist to any outfit I wear!

Not for the faint hearted, I know...but with Punk being a massive trend for AW13/14, throw caution to the wind and try your very own pair of these! Just make sure they are Underground as they are the original Creeper brand.

Black and White Sandals

So for once we have had a little bit of summer, and I was lucky enough to get these sandals in the sale at Topshop. For £25 this footwear has not left my feet for the last 3 weeks; long live the summer and my perfectly aired tootsies.
