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.

Aggy Takes A Tumble: TWICE.


So Naomi Campbell arranges a catwalk to raise money for Haiti and Aggyness Deyn felt the need to pay homage to the great supermodel – by falling down the runway; TWICE.

Naomi Campbell once fell on the runway whilst wearing Vivienne Westwood heels….

Watch the clip below of Aggy taking her two tumbles… LOL.

I know it’s probably quite mean, but I can’t stop laughing at this clip! Sorry aggz.

This Girl Is Definitely Allowed: Kimberly Walsh for New Look


My oh my! Kimberly Walsh, of Girls Aloud fame, looks absolutely amazing in the new campaign images for New Look.

Though I personally don’t like New Look Kimberly actually makes their clothes look half decent. To be fair, she might aswell be dressed up in bin bag, she’d still look fantabulous! Kimberly does join a good list of celebs to model for the high street brand, others include Drew Barrymore, Agyness Deyn (both for the Giles Deacon GOLD collection), Lily Allen (for her own collection ‘Lily Loves’) and more recently Alexa Chung. Not bad pet!

I’d kill for curves like Kimberly’s! JESSICA RABBIT EAT YER HEART OUT!!

A few weeks in a nutshell….


accessories-background1

Long time no types…. but in no time new tweets….

I’m sure most of you now know about twitter and its amazingness… so unfort, I’ve negleacted my memoir in favour of twitter, but luckily, I’ll be typing alot more on here again:)

SO, its been a while since I updated about my new job. I am now an E-Commerce Assistant at All Saints HQ and absolutely loving it! It’s so nice to be able to get up and go to a job I enjoy! A job that is so well suited to me! Crazy, just shows you that good things do come to those who wait!

I’ve got lots and lots on the go at the minute but I’m very excited about the brand and, again, lucky for you I’ll be able to give you fashionistas out there a few sneak peaks!;o

Also, follow AllSaintsRetail on Twitter!

http://www.twitter.com/AllSaintsRetail

You’ll get lots of sneak peak there too! Even better, you should sign up to the emails which we’ll get out every week or so, its another sneak peak and there’ll be even more exclusive discounts just for registered users! Nothing to lose except your head! Decisions, decisions, decisions, decisions…. eee so many clothes, so little time! heh. So get over to the website and get registered, www.allsaintsshop.co.uk, it’ll literally take you 2 minutes! 😀

So apart from visits from friends and family over the past 3 weeks I dont think I really have much more to report! Going on our jollies to Zakynthos soon though! Can’t wait! The weather is miserable today! Rubbish!

So if you have any AllSaints queries or anything, as usual, forward them my way! 😀
