Party Shoes (Part 1).


Shiny, new shoes are as essential as sunscreen at this time of year.

From printed pumps to embellished wedges, feet haven’t looked this showy since 1988.

So make like Beyonce and dance your way to a pair or three…


Party Points.

This is the shape of the second. Basic black and nude are a must but there are lots of high shine, metallic and printed version which work the same way as a pair of earrings or statement necklace with the perfect party frock. Va-voom.

    Paula how do you store your shoes? I’m starting to gather quite a few nice pairs and I”m struggling to store them in a way that will take care of them (ie. not all lumped in together at the bottom of my wardrobe).
