Sole Venture Shoe love since '91.

0

My love affair with shoes started at the ripe age of two. My mother was pregnant with my baby sister and to prevent any kind of rivalry, she purchased my favourite, red shoes (I was obsessed with red shoes at the time) and put them in the hospital cot with my newly born sister.

Needless to say, it was love at first sight – with both my new red shoes and my baby sis.

That’s as far back as I can trace my shoe love. Nearly twenty three years later and my closet comprises of 70% shoes and 30% clothing (this is true a true story).

The newest addition to my shoe closet? These tan lace up block heels that are flattering as they are versatile!

A Grey Kinda Day

0

You can always rely on your neutrals to get you through wintery days.

If you asked me what my favourite colour was, I’d be tempted to say grey. Yes, I know black, white and grey fall under the inconspicuous “non-colour” class, but, in fashion, they’re the world’s sell-out shades.

Here’s a monochrome outfit I wore the other day. The key to one-colour dressing is to layer a variety of different fabrics so it’s less drab and more three dimensional and chic.

If you’re looking to splurge on a coat (because let’s be real, these days a good quality coat costs the same as a full month’s groceries) I would suggest you ditch the usual black and opt for one in a medium to dark shade of grey. Like black, it’s versatile and will make friends with everything in your closet and suits almost any skin tone – and it’s super fresh.
