Beyoncé likes Kurt Geiger!


Spotted….Beyoncé going shoe shopping in London and what did she find? A pair of the hottest Kurt Geiger shoes priced at £200.

If you wanna copy the songstress, pop along to Brown Thomas or Debenhams who stock Kurt Geiger in Ireland.

Let there be shoes!

Ya like? These are from the greatly anticipated shoe collection from Awear which launches on October 4th. Bringing shoes to one of our fav stores is intensifying the love we already have for the store given their trendy yet affordable range for A/W 2010. Now you can complete the outfit with the ultimate accessory. I particularly love the grey patent platform sandle with feather detail and at only €119, they are trés chic and cheap (to borrow from Moschino!) This ones going to be a hit for the party season!

The full footwear collection will be available in the following stores from the 4th of October, A|wear Grafton St, Henry St, Dundrum, Patrick St, Waterford, Castlebar & www.awear.com

Fashion fix to get the week off to a stylish start

Boy, have I got the ultimate fashion fix for you today. You know how you have that dress that you never wear because you just couldn’t find the shoes to match? Golly gosh I am so excited to share this with you!

Two genius ladies called Katy Chandler and Julia Grinham have developed www.upperstreet.com where you can make a custom built pair of shoes in all shapes and sizes, colours…you name it they can do it. And the best part is that YOU are the designer.

The site gives you the option to view your design in 3-D before you purchase and you can save your designs as you make them and return to buy them later! The shoes start £180, a great investment if you ask me and range in sizes from 2 to 10.

Here are some they made earlier to give you some inspiration!

So how cool is that?

I’m in the middle of designing a classic peep toe beige leather pair of Mary Janes, so if you’ll excuse me…..

Love your feet

The word of the day is “microwobbleboard”. (I hear a chorus of “huh?”)

This evening saw the launch of the Fitflop, or in other words, “a good looking plaster”, “rehab for the feet” and the list of euphemisms goes on (we had a lot of fun thinking of these). These are no ordinary shoe, they are TLC for the feets in their finest form. With the combination of research and technology,  I was able to see the difference between walking in a FitFlop and my own flat pumps, which, let’s be honest, we all wear as our comfy shoes. I was astounded, in my flats, only 87% of my foot hit the ground, as opposed to 96% in the Fitflop, giving my foot, legs and bum the ultimate work out. In these babies, I want to walk more. From now on, it’s off the DART at Lansdowne and not Grand Canal Dock.

Moreover (I love using that word), Ireland has the highest per capita ownership of the Fitflop in the world. Guess we Emerald goddesses just get the concept of what the shoe can do for our posture and muscles.  

On top of that we talked blogging, fashion, volcanoes causing the world to shut down, mutual friends and most of all, how seriously light the FitFlops are! We won’t be worrying about luggage weight restrictions this summer!

Fitflops have so many different styles, from bejewelled with stones to styles adorned with Swarovski crystals and limited edition designs from Anna Sui (there’s only 48 pairs!). They are also hitting some of the key trends this Spring/Summer with prints and embellishment galore.

Here are some images from the evening

My feet!

My first pedicure!
