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.

Oh What To Do?! Mulberry V’s Louis Vuitton.


As previously “mentioned” I’m currently (STILL) lusting after a Mulberry iconic Bayswater.


Mulberry Bayswater in Oak, £595. Buy online at Mulberry.Com


But then I was in Selfridges London, on Friday and couldn’t help but notice the Louis Vuitton Noé duffle bag. It stopped me in my tracks… then a very lovely looking lady picked it up and tried it on for size. I have to say, I’ve never really been a massive LV fan, but this is a pretty perfecto looking duffle. Also, get this, the Louis Vuitton Noé was first created in 1932 to carry champagne bottles! Lavish central.

Louis Vuitton Noé Duffle, £525. Buy online at Louis Vuitton.Com

Help?!

Don’t All Rush At Once BUT… Vintage CHANEL At Blondie Boutique.


I was dashing out on my lunch today and was stopped in my tracks….

Apologies for the rubbish pic, I’ll [EDIT] this tomorrow and it’ll be much better!

I work right beside Blondie Vintage Boutique in Spitalfields (East London) and walk past this little shop every day to/from work/Tesco. FYI, Blondie Vintage Boutique is by the same folk as Absolute Vintage (located just round the corner). Blondie generally stocks more high end Designer Vintage goodies, but they very very very RARELY showcase these treats in their window; so as you can imagine I was most definitely stopped in my tracks.

I absolutely LOVE the classic chain print and wrote a post on this a month or so again, here>>>> My Current Obsession… Chain Print

So this Chanel Vintage bomber with chain print is AMAZING! Also, check out the Vintage silk scarves – to die for!

Additionally, I spy the Vintage Moschino belt I have hanging in my belt closet; I wonder how much Blondie are selling theirs for….

Oh DEAR oh DEAR. Just realised how absolutely link heavy this post is! Oh well, hope you enjoy! 🙂

Cheryl Cole: The UK Face Of L’Oreal – PART DEUX


So tonight saw the premiere of the Cheryl Cole for L’Oreal advert for Elvive Full Restore 5 – and I was stumped! She looks amazing and makes your heart melt with that true ‘Geordie girl next door’ freshness.

My favourite part of the ad HAS TO BE when wor Cheryl says, “Come on girls lets say it… because we’re worth it!

AMAZING!

See the ad in full below… and the bus stop poster at the bottom of my road that I took whilst walking to work this morning! The campaign is well and truly in motion!

So what are your thoughts?!
