NEW IN. Last month I did a huge closet clean out and pretty much got rid of everything I haven’t worn in the past year or two (with the exception of a few pieces with sentimental value that I just couldn’t bring myself to give up). Since that day, my focus has been on adding some missing must-haves, like for instance, a pair of classic black patent pumps. Queue the Jimmy Choo ‘Abel‘ pump. These babies took me from shows, to meetings, to parties during London fashion week without giving me a single blister and are pretty much the shoe equivalent of a little black dress! Next on my list? The perfect pair of black everyday boots..

HELLO THERE. I know most people have a love/hate relationship with these boots, I did too, until I saw them on Eva Chen during a Lucky shoot a couple of months ago and fell in love. Of course, they were sold out everywhere and just when I had started coming to terms with the fact that I would probably never get my hands on them, I decided to stop by the Balenciaga store in Soho, and wham, in front of me stood the boots that had haunted my dreams for months. Turns out, they had one pair left in my size which clearly was a sign from the shoe gods to whip out the credit card and live on noodles for a while. Now if only it could stop snowing!
