If you are ever wondering around Shoreditch, London then make sure you head to Redchurch Street to check out Miista shoes; a Hackney based brand made with love in sunny España. Their designs are absolutely divine. Some are so simple and yet so chic and elegant. There is definitely a 60s/70s vibe to them, and the shades of mustard yellow are just to die for.
I visited their shop on Friday night as they were showcasing their collaboration with Giuseppe Palmisano, an Italian artist who has previously worked with known brands such as Ikea and Calzedonia. The exhibition featured an installation of a lot of legs, chairs and lights… and of course the lovely Miista shoes. I fell in love with every single pair, especially with the Carlota yellow suede boots. Check out their Instagram and web page for more!!

I think it’s always great to have at least one pair of bright coloured shoes in your wardrobe – the ones you can count on to complete your outfit by giving it that little bit extra. I bought this pair of pumps from Topshop last summer for just £12 and never thought about wearing them until now. I figured life is more fun with these on, and people actually notice! (A lady from work was amazed by how fluorescent these are and actually put a smile on her face).
I styled these pumps with wide leg jeans because aren’t they so in right now! And this lovely vintage purse I bought in a garage sale in Tübingen, Germany when I lived there for a few months. Add some nice flowers to the picture to give it a Morrisey kinda vibe, some cacti (because every other picture on Instagram is about cacti) and cool retro ornaments, et voila! The perfect Spring/Summer picture:
I have also made a short appreciation film of my red shoes, so if you want to check it take a look below!

Tuesday 31st May, 2017 – the day I had been impatiently waiting for since I was 16 years old… the Queen of fashion Alexa Chung finally launched her own label and it is sooooo Alexa Chung. The whole collection (which I think is 145 pieces altogether) is to die for. It ranges from jumpers to denim to earrings to thick silver heels – it is everything Alexa embodies and more. You can see inspiration from 60s/70s rock ‘n’ roll fashion including leather and sequin dresses, a two-piece Bowie number, and even a Beetlejuice inspired suit. The collection also includes her trademark tomboyish with a hint of Parisian girl style – definitely the obvious next step after her amazing collaboration with Marks & Spencer’s (still the pride and joy of my wardrobe). Even the runway show was magical – wedding-themed in a chapel near Regent’s Park, with a live girl choir singing classic tunes and confetti… what more could you want. I guess as one of the many ‘number one’ fans I’m quite biased as I will love anything Alexa Chung does, BUT, anyone who is into cool chic style would think this collection is great.
The only thing though – shame about the price tags :(((((( (the cheapest items are the T-shirts at £85).
But anyway, I’ve made a collage of few of my fav pieces… ENJOY!
