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.

I’m struggling.


I’m REALLY struggling to log into WordPress right now. Not only that, but I’m REALLY REALLY struggling to copy my Tumblr posts over to WordPress. So, as a compromise, why not migrate with me over to Tumblr? My address is Judypink.tumblr.com.

I swear you will not be disappointed! ;o Life is a breeze!

Our Docklands Apartment :)


Now that we’re looking for a new place, clearly it is only apt to share with you the current abode of which we have the pleasure of living in:)

When we decided to move to London last year, we also decided to finally get our own furniture! Which, to be honest, is quite a big thing! After renting for the last five years in furnished places we were desperate to get our own furniture and FINALLY be able to make our own mark on a place, really make it OUR OWN, and give it a personality. We had collected a few bits and pieces over the years, but its the big things like a bed and matress, coffee table, dining table and chairs we needed. So we drew up a massive list and off to IKEA we went…

Still getting it all together mind!

Ms. Judy Pink.
