Wednesday Wants: Blue suede shoes

Elvis Blue Suede Shoes

 

OK, so I’m a big Elvis fan. And I’m just as big a fan of shoes. Ergo…..I clearly need me some blue suede shoes!

I suppose a small obsession began when I first saw The Shoe Embassy stall at Old Spitalfields Market…they have the most wonderful collection and it happens to include some super lush blue suede numbers. And ever since, I’ve spotted different pairs here and there and thought how much I *want* some….although them not being the most practical choice I’ve yet to make a purchase.

Still, this feature is all about *wants* and not *needs* so here’s a round up of blue suede shoes I’d like to add to my shoe rack…..

 

Shoe Embassy, Al Capone in Indigo, £55

Shoe Embassy, Al Capone in Indigo, £55

These are the ones that started it all off! I actually have a pair in the Amber which is a gorgeously versatile tan shade. They are super comfy and go with anything. I love the cross between brogue and pixie boot! Now I just need their blue counterparts!

Shoe Embassy, Brick Lane in Indigo, £69

Shoe Embassy, Brick Lane in Indigo, £69

For a more boyish, less pixie-like brogue though, I’m loving these, also from Shoe Embassy. They’re adorably vintage looking, but with (if my other Shoe Embassy brogues are anything to go by!) the benefit of incredible comfort and seriously hard wearing.

Clarks, Chorus Voice in Violet, £ 55

Clarks, Chorus Voice in Violet, £55

Hello! How gorgeous are these?! The shade is amazing, as is that beautiful detail at the vamp. I adore the heel and vintage feel of these. Imagine them with a wiggle dress at a wedding or cocktail party! Lush!

Clarks, Chorus Thrill in Navy, £50

Clarks, Chorus Thrill in Navy, £50

If that vibrant indigo isn’t your bag, these navy stunners are a treat. I love a t-bar, and not just because it reminds me of dressing up in my Nanna’s shoes from the fifties as a little girl…they are mega practical and comfy to boot!

J. Crew, Lowell Boots in Dark Navy, Regular calf £298.00 / Extended Calf £318.00  

J. Crew, Lowell Boots in Dark Navy, Regular calf £298.00 / Extended Calf £318.00

Now what could be lovelier than a pair of stunning blue suede *boots* I hear you cry! Well, a pair of blue suede boots that will actually fit your legs in, that’s what! These J. Crew boots are all kinds of wonderful….they have that Puss In Boots appeal for sure, and I think they’d look amazing with a tweed mini skirt. Plus they’re available in two calf sizes, so that those of us with normal sized legs can get in them! Love!

J. Crew Collection, Lace-Up Houndstooth Pumps, £398

J. Crew Collection, Lace-Up Houndstooth Pumps, £398

And saving the best till last…..how about these?!?! I literally gasped when I saw these. Look at that hounds tooth panel! Look at the pointy blue toe! And the laces! I die.

Wednesday Wants: Transition Wardrobe

So it seems we’re actually getting an Autumn this year, huh?! I feel like this time over the last couple of years has just been a single step from summer into winter, but I’m currently finding it a lovely in-between. I know some people find it a pain choosing what to wear at this time of year, but I’m loving it….whilst I’m always sad to say goodbye to my Summer wardrobe, I’m very happy not to have to start layering up too heavily yet, and I do like to dip into my wardrobe and find some long lost treasures to play with.

It being milder than I’ve found it as this time in the past couple of years (despite moving North and being warned of the temperature difference!) I’ve been able to wear some things I haven’t in ages, and put together lots of new outfits. I’m loving getting use out of my short sleeved jumpers…they’re too warm to wear in Spring and I need sleeves in Winter! And I’ve been re-finding lots of skirts for them to go with, along with my uniform of thick tights and boots.

Of course, all this re-discovery in my wardrobe doesn’t stop me from looking elsewhere, and so here is a round up of some pieces I have my eye on to see me through the transition from warm to cold…..

The foundation for an Autumnal outfit as far as I’m concerned is a darn good pair of boots. It’s proven (by scientists and me) that if your feet are warm, the rest of you is more likely to be too. I have an amazing pair of Shoe Embassy brogue boots that have seen me through all seasons for the last few years….they’re fleece lined for extra warmth and I’ve never had such a comfy pair of boots before. I’m constantly complemented on them, and I know that my next pair will be along the same lines…..most probably these….

Shoe Embassy, Brick Lane boots in Burgundy Ink, £89

Shoe Embassy, Brick Lane boots in Burgundy Ink, £89

Working upwards, it’s some super soft and cosy tights next. I’ve been a big fan of Heat Holders for ages, and was delighted when they brought in some new shades in their range of tights. The black and navy ones are super all-rounders, but its my purple and brown pairs that come into their own at this time of year….

Heat Holders, 0.52 Tog Tights in Purple, £8 fro Sock Shop

Heat Holders, 0.52 Tog Tights in Purple,   £8 from Sock Shop

With thick tights and boots I think the next thing needs to be a short skirt. Unsurprisingly, the shops are full of heritage tweeds and such as usual at the moment, but I’ll never complain….as much as I love all things bold and bright, I just adore the cosy feel of a lush woollen tartan…..

Tommy Hilfiger, Moon Wool Skirt, £115

Tommy Hilfiger, Moon Wool Skirt, £115

Tommy Hilfiger, Risa Check Skirt, £115

Tommy Hilfiger, Risa Check Skirt, £115

It’s fair to say that I get serious wear out of my Aran sweater all year round, but I love wearing it over skirts with boots at this time of year most. A short knit with a cute skirt is just adorable I think, and oh so Audrey Horne a la Twin Peaks!….

Tommy Hilfiger, Farida Sweater, £115

Tommy Hilfiger, Farida Sweater, £115

I’m currently watching Mad Men, and amongst the very many outfits I’m coveting (mostly Joan and Betty!) Betty’s riding jacket is getting a lot of my attention. I have a gorgeous vintage tweed jacket with corduroy trim that a very dear friend gave to me, and it’s getting LOTS of wear at the moment. I wouldn’t swap it for the world, but as you can’t have it (!), here’s what I’d pick as a spare….

Hobbs London, Herringbone Jacket,  £229.00

Hobbs London, Herringbone Jacket,
£229.00

And because even when it’s drizzly and chill outside, there’s always room for a pretty dress, I’m currently eyeing up this treasure which I know would see me through right until Spring. It actually comes in three different tartans, all stunning, but this one is just divine in my opinion and the perfect antidote to the post-summer blues….

Boden, Isla Dress, £134.10 (Was £149.00)

Boden, Isla Dress, £134.10
(Was £149.00)

Last of all, one final cosy cover up…. The perfect cherry red of this woollen cape is such a pick-me-up and would pair beautifully with those checks. You need to see it in its full glory though on the model, hence the extra photo of the camel version….

Avoca, Classic Cape in Berry, €169.95

Avoca Classic, Berry Cape in Red, €169.95

Avoca Classic, Berry Cape in Camel, €169.95

Avoca Classic, Berry Cape in Camel, €169.95

So here’s to kicking through the fallen leaves, hot chocolates and another excuse to shop!

Hope you have a lovely Autumn!

Wednesday Wants: Packing Frenzy

As we prepare for our house move next week, I’m in a serious packing frenzy and the house is full of cardboard boxes, bubble wrap and packing tape. I usually get pretty excited about packing, and I did at least enjoy bundling up the first few boxes of books, CDs and fragile treasures…..it gets boring fairly fast though, and trickier and trickier as the house gets further into disarray! So I was thinking that a distraction was in order, and that perhaps if I had some fun stuff to pack with, I’d get excited about it again. And what better distraction than shopping……

Check out these super cute packing tapes! Adorable aren’t they? I’d be a demon with the tape gun if I had these, and I bet the moving men would take extra special care with our treasures too!

1

HANDLE WITH CARE packing tape, £6.50 from Hazel Nicholls on Etsy

I have a collection of label makers of course, but just think how productive I’d be with the DYMO LabelWriter 450! It comes with proprietary DYMO label software and enables you to create and print address, shipping, file, folder and barcode labels…..and at a speed of 51 labels per minute! Unpacking would surely be a breeze if I had this baby to get organised with!

DYMO LabelWriter 450, £109.52 from DYMO

DYMO LabelWriter 450, £109.52 from DYMO

Of course packing and moving calls for a lot of lists. I don’t need much encouragement to list really, but I’d list all day on this adorable little note book. It’s even got a Cooper dog look-a-like on it (one of his nicknames is Bambi!).

Fawn And Butterfly Magnetic To Do List Pad, £4, by SUPERFUMI on Not on the High Street

Fawn And Butterfly Magnetic To Do List Pad, £4, by SUPERFUMI on Not on the High Street

New home means new stationery. Obviously. Maybe I’ll wait until we’re in our ‘forever home’, but I really do fancy some proper headed writing paper. I’d keep it in my correspondence box and write on it with my dippy pen before blotting it like I’m in a Dickens novel.

Actually we’ve already told most people who’d like to know our new address, but still, it’s a nice excuse for some fancy cards, right?

And what to put on the back of the envelopes?1 A personalised stamp of course! This one has a picture of Digby dog on it, so it has to be this one.

Personalised Dachshund Stamp, £27.50, by LETTER CANDY on Not on the High Street

Aaaanyway…..I suppose id’ better get back to the *actual* packing…..

Wednesday Wants…. Totes Amazing

I’ve had a thing about bags for as long as I can remember. I recall as a child I’d blow any money I had on a new purse or bag at the first opportunity….and with all my money spent I’d have nothing to put into it! The ‘problem’ once got so bad that I had to limit myself to buying just one bag a month!

I’ve rather curbed the habit since then, favouring buying ‘investment’ bags to last me forever, and I’m currently in the process of streamlining my collection (I have a walk in wardrobe dedicated to accessories and it could do with a tidy up!). I do think though that you REALLY can’t have too many tote bags. They pack down flat, they’re inexpensive, last well, don’t mind being chucked in the washing machine and are infinitely useful to keep around. I have a big one filled with lots of others, and they’re just perfect for using for supermarket shops, throwing parcels and purse in when going to the post office, and for carrying lunches and documents to the office.

I also think tote bags are a rather wonderful way of buying into a new trend you like, your new favourite style, or just to show off your love for dogs or knitting or whatever. The nicest ones in my opinion are the pretty illustrated ones by independent designers, and I do love to carry a piece of artwork around with me!

Koala Screen Print Tote by Depeapa, £14.11 on Etsy, via Craft Gawker

How could you not feel cheered on a shopping trip with this fellow on your arm?! I love a Warly Bear (or Koala Bear if you prefer) and this chap is so charming with his smart yellow jumper!

Rob Ryan Canvas Shopper by Wild and Wolf, £7.50 on sale from £14.95 via Bloomsbury & Co

I actually have this one and I love it! I fell in love with the design when I visited the Ryantown shop on Columbia Road, and the bag itself makes me smile each time I look at it….I think it’s a rather apt saying for me! It’s a good size with a gusset bottom and a little zipped pocket inside, plus it’s a really sturdy, heavy canvas….a total bargain at the sale price!

Dachsund Tote Bag by Jeff Josephine Designs, £10 on Folksy

I adore this little guy! He reminds me a lot of my Digby hound, with his little Queen Anne legs! I am crazy about his striped scarf too!

‘Bad Mother Knitter’ Bag by Kelly Connor Designs, £13.75 via Not on the High Street

Hehehe! I love a pun, and a shiny gold print….. not to mention knitting! This one would be super cute to collect all your yarns and knitting pins together in!

Tipsy Badger Tote by Sophie Parker, £12 on Etsy, via Boys with Banjos

This badger knows how to live! Look at his shorts! I love this guy, and I have a certain badger-mad friend who will go crazy for this I’m sure…. especially as she’s partial to a glass of vino too!

‘Ignition’ Illustrated Rabbit tote by Gallons of Ink, £6 on Etsy

Pretty sure this one is my favourite….there’s something about the juxtaposition of these cutesy little bunnies and the innuendo-filled R&B lyrics of R Kelly’s ‘Ignition.’ So much fun!

How about you? Are you bag mad? Do you have a stash of totes for running errands with and cramming treasures in?

Wednesday Wants: Strangely Yours on Etsy

I’m always finding gorgeous things as I browse Etsy…..lovely new shops, unique gifts and clever products that capture my imagination. It’s not that often though that I find a shop FULL of very, very *me* things….

Strangely Yours though is very much my cup of tea. Wonderfully whimsical, imaginative and exciting, each darling piece of jewellery would sit happily amongst my collection. I adore the etched wood, the clever compartments and secrets….these designs remind me of my childhood when hidden messages and secret stashing places were the stuff of my daydreams. Not that they’re not still!

Here are six of my favourites from the charming Etsy shop…..

Polaroid Camera Locket, £22.56

“This retro little camera has a tiny film that slides in and out, making it look like your photos are really developing! If you are an avid Polaroid taker or instagrammer, this wooden camera makes an awesome accessory! Proudly display your best photo, or a special occasion in the space of the black square. Laser cut from wood, the “flim” is made from white & black acrylic, with a gold mirror for a lens.”

Personalised ‘Message in a tree’ Necklace, £16.70

“Like lovers scratching their names into the bark of unsuspecting trees with their keys, vandalize the poor trees no more! Now you can carve a special date, name or message into the hollow of your very own secret tree! A little slide up door shields your messages from prying eyes. Etch the date of your anniversary, or lover’s names. Maybe you have words of encouragement to give to someone, or perhaps a personal motto that keeps you going. Either way this little stump is your very own private hollow!”

How adorable would this be as a wedding gift?! (*Hints to her Groom*)

Bow and Arrow Layered Necklaces, £15.41

“A minimalistic bow and arrow pairing. Both arrow and bow are individual necklaces that look great layered together, or each on its own! Etched with geometric markings on wood, these lovelies are then hand painted. Gold rings accents are added for a tribal style with a single gold feather paired with the arrow.”

Having just completed my beginners archery course, I feel this would be a rather apt treat to myself!

‘The Collector’ Wooden Crate Locket, £16.70

“Little crate lockets you can really keep stuff in. If you’re the sort to pick up small bones & pebbles on long walks, or maybe some pretty glass found on the beach, this unique little locket is a cool way to hold your secret finds!Its also a great way to hide little surprises.. pop a small photo inside, or a meaningful note. If you are forgetful like we are, a folded grocery list, or just some change for bus fare. Whatever the reason, these little crates are are sure to be a conversation starter. Choose from a few phrases to fit your purpose. “Fragile/Caution/Radioactive/Top secret/Do not feed” or engrave your own custom text! These miniature crates are hand crafted in our home studio. Each piece is unique and will have its own variations in coloring and distress markings just like a real crate!”

I just adore these….and I am totally the kind of person who picks up bits and bobs on walks!

Personalised Vintage Sewing Machine Necklace, £22.56

“A beautiful rustic sewing machine modeled after a vintage Singer. Cut from solid cherry wood and engraved with detailed floral flourishes, it features a tiny spool that has been threaded with real thread, a wheel that really spins, and a tiny gold needle! Sew cute! And as added bonus, personalize “The Seamstress” with a name instead.”

What a gorgeous gift idea for a crafty sewer!

Woodlands Secret Locket Necklace, £22.56

“An adorable handcrafted piece, stash away your secret finds with this little locket! 2 squirrels holding an acorn stand atop the headpiece with a whimsically victorian motif. The little key works as the latch, pop the key and open the tiny doors! This miniature locket is fully functional and just like some closets, can hold a few skeletons!”

If I had to choose just one thing from this amazing collection, it would be this. So imaginative, charming and whimsical….love love love!!!

I want it allllll!!!!

Wednesday Wants: Back to School with Not On The High Street

This week I got the very exciting news that I’ve been accepted to join Not On The High Street, and I’ll be opening up a little Under A Glass Sky shop there very soon! Naturally, I’ve been using this as an excuse to spend ages browsing this lovely site, snooping around and window shopping…..And what with it being that time of year (not to mention my stationery obsession) I’ve been very much led down the ‘Back To School’ path. And that’s despite not actually having been to school in some time now!

Still, a girl can still hanker after some fancy new stationery can’t she? Here’s my picks….

Personalised Pencil Case, by TILLYANNA, £8

Well this literally has my name all over it! And not only was this lovely pencil case clearly *made* for me, but it also stipulates it’s to carry my ‘creative kit’….which means I could fill it with all kinds of marvellous things!

Pack Of 12 Personalised Colouring Pencils, by ABLE LABELS, £6.50

And to fill that personalised pencil case? Why, a set of personalised pencils of course!

‘Stuff I’m Likely To Forget’ Notebook, by BREAD & JAM, £13.50

Another thing *clearly* made for me! I just have to keep list upon list, lest I forget where I’m coming from and what I’m doing. And there’s nowhere better to keep all those lists than a super cute note book like this one.

Personalised ‘From The Kitchen Of’ Stamp, by PRETTY RUBBER STAMPS, £12.50

I love stamping things. I used to have a self built toy post office as a child and would merrily stamp anything that sat still for long enough. This one would be great for home-baked gift giving….and you know, just anything that sits still long enough.

Rob Ryan For Alphabet Bags Initial Tote Bag, by ALPHABET BAGS, £16

Of course, one always needs a pretty new bag to carry one’s pretty new things in. I adore Rob Ryan and these initial book bags with his darling paper-cut initials on make me smile.

Bunny In The Field Paper Clip Holder, by KIKI’S GIFTS AND HOMEWARE, £15

And now for the pièce de réstistance…. I am just crazy about this little bunny rabbit! He cleverly gathers up all your paper clips, and he’s silly cute to boot. I want him on my desk this instant!

Are you allowing yourself any ‘Back to School’ time extravagances? What type of stationery really floats your boat?!

Do keep an eye out for my Not On The High Street shop….my vintage stamp jewellery should be live on there in a week or so!

Wednesday Wants: Tatty Devine AW13

It’s here! It’s here! The new Tatty Devine Autumn Winter Collection is here! And as a matter of no surprise whatsoever, I want it all!

The collection is all loosely based around a 60s psychedelic solar system theme, but of course there are some twists! I love all the pearlescent Perspex and the darling little sprinkles of glitz. It’s all super fun, just as you’d expect, but wearable to boot, as usual.

Here I go with my current for-runners though…..

20130821-213935.jpg

Head In The Clouds Rainbow Necklace, £95.00

Wednesday Wants: Shoe Embassy

Screen shot 2013-08-07 at 10.26.18

Shoe Embassy was established in 2011 and shortly afterwards, when I found them at a Brick Lane market, I bought my first pair. Two years on, and I can safely say they are the best pair of shoes I’ve ever owned. My camel coloured ‘Foxy Brown‘ boots (pictured above) have seen me through just about as much as you could ask of any shoe….they are fleecey lined and have kept my usually cold toes warm, kept smart and solid despite the hundreds of miles I’ve walked in them, and remained comfy even in hot weather and after hours of pavement pounding and dog walks.

I suppose what impressed me first about Shoe Embassy is the fact that all their shoes are leather inside and out, and that despite their amazing quality, they are incredibly well priced. I have paid through the nose in the past to try to get comfy shoes for my weird feet, but these bargainous boots are the only ones I’ve ever managed to break in right away and with no discomfort.

Now that I’ve moved out of London, I’ve been waiting and waiting for their website to launch, and finally I can now buy online! There is a great choice of boots, shoes, flats, flip flops and heels in all sorts of charming designs. All are leather and made in Europe. You can also buy them at Camden Market, Spitalfields and Greenwich Market, but with the online shopping temptation I fear I’ll be buying up several pairs before long!

Here though are my favourites…..so far!…..

Screen shot 2013-08-07 at 10.26.38

When I bought my Foxy Brown boots I had a tough choice between all the other lovely brown boots. The colour goes with EVERYTHING and because they’re not too bulky, I can wear them with dresses as well as skinny jeans. These ‘Al Capones’ are a great halfway house between boot and shoe though, with a thin and flexible sole, low top and fancy brogue-ish pixiness. They also come in two-tone versions of black and white, and charcoal and sepia!

Screen shot 2013-08-07 at 10.26.38 copy

Not only did I struggle to choose a boot style, but I also had to pick a shade of brown! I love the amber richness of my boots, but there is something distinctly retro and classy about these ‘Doodle Dandy‘ boots, which have a beautiful taupe outer, with a flashy violet lining which can be exposed by folding down the tongue! Fun *and* wearable!

Screen shot 2013-08-07 at 10.26.45 copy

Speaking of fun, how wonderful are these babies?! The Spectator shoes are so wonderfully nostalgic and bright. I adore the soft vanilla panels and dark blue toes and heels, and the cleverly included red trims really make them special.

Screen shot 2013-08-07 at 10.26.25

And for more red….I am crazy about these ‘Pixie-Oh‘ booties in Chilli. They are wonderfully pointy and buttery soft, and you can fold down the tops to make them even more versatile. And I really *should* have a pair of red boots.

Screen shot 2013-08-07 at 13.50.44

Back to being sensible though for a while, and these ‘Twirlie‘ shoes in Amber look like a seriously sound investment. Dainty and delicate, these angels have a feather-light sole and a super soft ankle, so your feet will be happy happy happy…. and not to mention beautifully adorned. I can see me wearing these non-stop through summer with girly dresses, frilly skirts and short trousers, as they really do go with anything.

Screen shot 2013-08-07 at 10.26.58

I am nearly always in need of a pair of sensible black shoes, perhaps because I don’t often find them exciting enough to buy. These ‘Quarter Oxfords‘ in black though are seriously cute and wearable….how lush would they look with brightly colours tights and a mini skirt?!

Screen shot 2013-08-07 at 10.26.58 copy

I can’t be sensible forever though, and I therefore give you….blue suede shoes! Well, Indigo Nubuck to be accurate, but this Elvis lover thinks the King would approve. And at just £55 I think they are a snip, if only for the chance to dance around in them, singing like a lune.

I really can’t tell you just how comfy my Shoe Embassy boots are, and I constantly get complimented on them. It’s so wonderful to finally have found a company who sells such a great range of styles, exclusively in leather (for my feet will not last two minutes in anything else!) and at such a great price point. And if I could only ever buy shoes from one place ever, I wouldn’t be too upset knowing that Shoe Embassy have me covered!

Wednesday Wants….Sompex Balloon Dog Lamps

They’re metallic. Love.

They’re balloons. Love.

And they’re DOGS. LOVE LOVE LOVE!

9503-360x360-1374246581

I’m desperately hankering after one of these Sompex Balloon Dog Lamps on Fab.com at the moment. I adore Jeff Koons’ huge balloon dog sculptures, after which I’m sure these are based. And really anything shiny and dog-shaped is going to have my name written all over it. But which colour….?

They’re currently £85 on Fab.com which I don’t think is *too* bad for a rather wonderfully different lamp. Especially when it’s shiny and dog-shaped.

Wednesday Wants: Liberty and Marc by Marc Jacobs collaboration

Oooooh….Marc by Marc Jacobs has joined forces with Liberty for the first time in an exclusive collaboration, which launches this very week! The exclusive collection features classic designs in two vintage Liberty prints, including a tote bag, tablet case, backpack and cosmetics case.

Two classic ditsy floral prints have been selected from the Liberty archive of over 40,000 prints to work alongside irreverent Marc Jacobs hallmarks….The Emma and Georgina print is a zesty green and pink mix of two tiny dense floral designs, inspired by Liberty’s large collection of Victorian pattern books. Emma was first produced on Tana Lawn in the 1970s and Georgina was launched in 2000. And the purpley-pink Wiltshire was actually designed in 1933 and has been on classic Tana Lawn fabric since 1979.

The collection is super cute, fun and practical….here are my favourites….

Emma and Georgina Liberty Print Pretty Nylon Tablet Case, £60.00

Clashing prints of Emma & Georgina (main body) and Wiltshire (trims), this tablet case has a plush interior and a nice zip closure. It’s 110% nylon too, so about as practical as you can get for something this pretty.

Wiltshire Liberty Print Pretty Nylon Backpack, £160

A fun new take on the classic Marc by Marc Jacobs backpack, this cute number combines the Standard Supply design with contrasting classic Liberty prints. It features the chunky logo plaque, two side pockets, big contrasting top handles and adjustable shoulder straps. And everyone needs a pretty rucksack.

With its all-over stitched oversized logo and boxy shape, I think this is a really sweet little carry-all. The lining is printed too (a must for makeup bags as they realistically don’t stay makeup free for long!) and in the nylon again is a really practical little piece.
