Brogues collection

Time for another shoe collection installment. Today’s topic: brogues. I love a good brogue and wear them tons in especially the fall and spring time. Over the years I have gotten quite a few so I thought it would be a good moment to share with you what I have. If you don’t know what…

Dr. Marten’s shoe collection

My love for shoes knows no bounds and while I am not super true to any particular brands, there is one brand that stands out in my collection: Dr. Marten’s. Dr. Marten’s shoes are known for their sturdy quality as they were started as workman boots. Brought to the mainstream by the punk scene of…

How to break in a pair of Dr. Marten’s

Dr. Marten’s are a notoriously difficult pair of shoes to break in. They are a very sturdy shoe. So sturdy in fact that you need to go through blisters and sore feet until they become truly comfortable. Since then they have started making styles that are a bit easier to wear, made from softer leathers,…

Spring/ summer 2013 shoplog: shoes & accessories

As promised: part 2 of my spring/ summer shoplog. Today it’s shoes and accessories. Just like last time: remember that I purchased these items in the course of 3 – 4 months, not in one go. Before we hit the jackpot where I’ll show you how I gave my wardrobe a serious spring/ summer update,…

New in: Mint green & white creepers

Oops I did it again! Buy new shoes that is. Anyone who knows me, knows that I really don’t need any more shoes, but when I see a pair that I think is unique and makes me squee with glee I can’t resist. And that was exactly what happened when I saw these puppies. I…

Fall/ Winter lookbook (#6): navy polka dots galore

Are you ready for something super girly? After weeks of bulky sweaters it’s time for a more dainty look. It’s perhaps a little less pretty than the lace & pleather look I posted a few weeks ago, but there’s still plenty of girlishness in this outfit. From the polkadots on the dress, to the tassled…

In other words: my personal tips & tricks that are practical rather than esthetic. Want to know how you can prevent pantyhoses from ripping…

London Shoplog # 2: Shoes & Fashion

A few days ago I already showed you some of the stuff I bought during my London trip. That post featured books, CDs, make up, beauty products and accessories. But that wasn’t all I got as I also bought a bunch of clothes and yes, as a shoe freak I also got some shoes. So…

Fashion across borders

If you’ve been following this blog, then you know that I like my fair share of clothes and shoes. Shoes are a special favorite as I have quite a few of them, but there was one thing I didn’t know about them yet. Apparently different types of shoes are called something different in US and…

Trend: Polka Dots

Lately I’ve been noticing a very fun trend: polka dot patterns. They are everywhere and I’m loving it. I’m a sucker for prints like that: polka dots, stars, stripes. It’s simple but it still makes an item look just a tad more cheerful. When I realized how much I love polka dots, I quickly had…

Updated Shoe Collection – August 2011 (now with better video)

Since it’s been nearly 6 months since I last posted anything on my shoe collection I thought it would be time to give you an update on my current shoe collection. Since the last one, some shoes have disappeared (I threw out about 7 pairs since the last video) and of course more have been…

Primark Haul + some nail polish

Since it’s vacation and I still had some money left from my birthday, I decided it was time for some shopping. It had been a while since I last visited Primark, so I decided to go there. I got up early because shopping at Primark means you need a strategy in order to battle the…

More shoes…

So I decided to walk home via the shopping street in my town and guess what I found? These babies: Aren’t they cute? I love love love them! The color is a bit weird though. They are off white, greyish or baby blueish depending on how the light hits them. The detailing is superb though:…
