Red Shoe Diaries


Manolo Blahnik Notebook £5, Liberty; Charlotte Olympia Shoes, £594, Net-a-Porter; McQ Pumps, £260, Selfridges 

Whilst perusing the sales I picked me up this Manolo Blahnik notebook - £5.00 at Liberty. I don't know why exactly but it really inspired me to do some shoe sketching so I made me a little 'shoe' label and gots to painting. 

I love the Charlotte Olympia pumps. The red suede is a real deep berry shade which works nicely with the gold platform. Not really sure I'm that into spending six hundred quid on a pair of shoes though. The McQ pair, whilst still a little pricey, are way more affordable. I love the studs on the back and the dark wooden heel and platform.

Painting all of these red shoes reminded me of the show 'Red Shoe Diaries', the soft porn that aired on Channel Five circa 1998. Does anyone else remember this? It was narrated by David Duchovny and was the raciest thing on terrestrial TV excluding Eurotrash. Weird.

Speaking of red shoes, I picked me up a little treat in Primark the other day...

Why are my feet so veiny? Grosse.

Red Suede Pumps, £12, Primark

I'm thinking black jeans, white tee, leather jacket, red suede shoes. Classic. Maybe a red lip. Maybe not.
