Go Oriental with Rocket Dog this Autumn 2012

I previously revealed my absolutely adoration of a pair of printed boots from another store. Those shoes taught me love at first sight WAS possible. Rocket Dog have now confirmed this by releasing yet more printed shoes. These printed shoes, available in three styles (see below) have now gone straight to the top of my MUST HAVES for the coming season. I mean, come on, if you really like shoes with a touch of difference they should be on yours too! Check them out…

The ‘Satria’ ankle boot would look FABULOUS  with a pair of skinny jean and blazer combo and the platform wedge ‘Liftoff’ epitomises glam attitude and will vamp up any outfit.

The oriental soft floral print with gold accent will never be out of place at any occasion. Different styles make this print perfect for anyone flirting with the oriental trend to the brave early adopters. Reading left to right above – the platform ankle boot ‘Satria’, the platform lace-­‐up wedge ‘Liftoff’ and platform soled court ‘Sweetypie’ styles deliver luxe for this season.

Take a closer look at the fabulous shoes available from Rocket Dog

Summer Wedges

I explored my love of wedge heeled shoes a couple of months ago in a post entitled “The Wedges“. Since they are such a fantastic and versatile summer must have I have decided to give them a second visit.

With the arrival of summer comes the return of short clothing – and one of the best ways to ensure your legs look their best is to slap on a pair of heels. Personally I dont like tottering about on stilettos, most especially when I am walking from bar to nightclubs on holiday, and I definitely like to not have my stride hindered. There is nothing less attractive than a girl, regardless of her beauty, who when waring five inch stilletos walks like farmer giles in a dress! Come on ladies, if you are going to wear heels, match the heel with the occasion – and learn how to walk in them!! Anyway, I digress, wedge heels are infinitely easier to walk in than a pair of stilettos but they give you the extra length of leg and slimming effect suitable for wearing with this seasons shorts and flesh baring outfits.

I tend to opt for a heel between 3 and 4 inches, and occasionally venture into just over 4 when I dont have a lot of walking to do. This size heel helps me to lengthen and slim my leg whilst not rendering me a cripple.

Try to buy the best shoe you can afford and check to see if the shoe is well balanced. I generally prefer to buy my shoes in an actual “brick and mortar” store but if you do shop online try to choose those stores who consider returns – just in case the shoe is not suitable and fits badly.

I previously covered my must have wedges shoes for the spring and summer season in my previous post but also be sure to check out Wedge Shoes from StylistPick.

Wedge shoes are versatile, fashionable and suitable for anyone whether you are looking for a nice all round shoe for your holiday, a summer wedding or even some great shoes for summer garden parties

Strut your studs!

Missguided is encouraging us ladies to strut our studs this week for Spring / Summer fashions and, I am forced to admit, I am definitely tempted by their range! From super Studded shoes of all types – to denim shorts and studded dresses. All they lack is the studded leather jacket to turn me into a rock chick fashionista!

I do like the current trends and, since I am leaning back into my rock chick phase (carefully tempered with a little bit of lace here and there just to give it my own spin) I do see a pair of studded shoes in my future. Not sure about the shorts though – but I could definitely work a pair of studded jeans. Anyone know any studded jeans stockists??

The Wedges

I love wedges. Passionately.

The reason being is they are a great summer shoe. They slim down the leg, add a touch of sex appeal and, factor in a slight tan (either natural or from a much healthier bottle) and you can rock practically any of the seasons fashion trends.

Not to mention they are infinitely comfier than your average high heel – and a great deal easier to walk in than any stiletto of the same height.

This year, to go with the colour block and pastel trends, you can get wedges in any number of colours. Outlined below are just a few of my current favourites (if only I had the budget to buy them all!!)
