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.

Emma Watson at the London ‘leg’ of Harry Potter and Half Blood Prince Premiere.


This week saw the wordly anticipated premiere of the latest installment in the Harry Potter saga: Harry Potter And The Half Blood Prince. Obviously, the worlds media had it’s attention on the young starlets themselves, Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter), Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley) and Emma Watson (Hermione Granger). The young actors have grown up before our own eyes and the awful pap’s had their very own field-day at poor Emma’s expense.

Emma looked perfect in a vintage Ossie Clark printed dress that unfortunately did not agree with the dreadful British weather….

Emma couldn’t hide her low, low neckline from the camera’s glare. What a ‘boob’… oh dear, bad bad joke. Could not resist!

I do feel very sorry for Emma, and indeed the other young actors, the pressure from the media must be horrendous. Emma has been absolutely slated from all angles, but hey, at least she wore sensible none offensive underwear, which can’t be said for the majority of ‘celebrities’ these days. I think Emma has made the right decision to go to USA to study and have the proper teenage-hood she deserves (although, lets be honest, she shouldn’t have to flee).

Overall, I think the famous trio looked great at the premiere and have definitely earned their status’ as national treasures! ;o
