To Clog Or Not To Clog?


As soon as the February 2010 VOGUE came out, with Alexa emblazoned on the front cover, wearing those faithful original CHANEL clogs, I think it was fair to say, we knew there and then, clogs would be massive this Summer. So, I think we have Alexa Chung to blame for the invasion of clogs in everyones SS10 collections and all the many CHANEL imitations we’ve already seen hitting the high street.

So, to clog or not to clog, that is the question? Take a look at my clog picks…

These are the original CHANEL clogs as seen on the SS10 fashion week runway.

Seanna, £68.00, Topshop.

(Topshop’s take on the CHANEL clog (not too sure how they get away with it, but hey ho!)

‘Howdy, £85, ASOS.com.

Selection of 3 clog styles, available from River Island, all £44.99.

Fur-lined Clogs by Miu Miu, $849.

Jimmy Choo and Marni’s take on Clogs.

‘Prima’, £85, Topshop.

(The studded sling back clog is pretty much the modern take on the Clog really).

SO! Will your Summer be all clogged up with clogs?

PS –  I hear that Clogs are a little bit tough… I found the below tips from lovely blogger, 5 inches and up.

I also have to share the best shoe fitting trick, that I had to use on these. Some of you may have heard of it, works best on leather/suede shoe that feels too tight and rub your feet..
1. wear the shoes on bare feet inside your house for a while so you know which part rubs and may cause blisters
2. buy moleskin tape/ fabric bandaid from the pharmacy and wrap a strip around the sore spot
3. soak your feet in water then dry them leaving the tape wet
4. wear your shoes with the wet tape on and the tight parts will mold perfectly to your feet, without stretching the whole shoe.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!


Firstly, HAPPY NEW YEAR all:) I’ve been a little bit on the quiet side over the holiday season; we’ve had a great old time drinking, eating and being merry!

For this years new years eve, we were at a bit of a loose end… we generally don’t really like NYE that much. I’m usually melancholy before midnight and it’s all a big mess! This year we went for a lovely meal on Upper Street in Islington and then headed back to our local, The Island Queen, as we couldn’t be chewed with the hassle and bustle of Upper Street.

We got seated at the bar and got the Aspalls-a-flowing. But then, James went to the bar at about 10:15 and was refused to be served because we didn’t have a ‘booking’. I was fuming to say the very least! The bar staff said that we had to have a reservation of a table to be able to stay and be served…there were no signs ANYWHERE in the pub stating you would need a reservation ANYWHERE! We had been in the Island Queen only on Boxing Day and there were no signs, nothing on their ‘website’ and the staff certainly didn’t mention anything. I wanted to place a complaint. But I think them losing our custom is more than adequate thanks.

So hey-ho and off we went, straight back to Upper Street… We ended up in Slim Jims at the top end of Upper Street – it’s an excellent bar… if you like New York “dive bars” you will LOVE Slim Jims! And we do, so we do! 🙂 We ended up seeing the New Year in at Slim Jims in the end and had an absolutely brilliant time.

If your ever in about Islington, give Slim Jims‘s a quick detour, you won’t regret it ;o

Wishing you all health, wealth and happiness in 2010!

Cxx
