Summer is here and so are my red shoes.
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!
