Seen in Red

Most people who know me know that i am a real magazine nut and up until i moved in with the Mr, i had over 100 copies of British Vogue (i say had, as i bravely disposed of a large amount of them as there was just no room here!).  As my little single girl pad had no fireplace in the living room, they served as a fireplace-come-light feature adorned with fairy lights.

I am slowly building up a bit of a collection again….

I love magazines for inspiration mostly - Elle UK, British/French Vogue, WishWishWish, Mollie Makes, Oh Comely and Red Magazine are my favourites.  Although i keep all of my magazines stashed on top of a little Moroccan pouffe, i do love to devour them and chop bits and bobs out for my never ending moodboards…they are also slowly taken over our little somewhere too.  

I spotted these blooming beauties in this months Red Magazine and i can't stop thinking about them.  They were in fact the very first thing i thought about when i opened my eyes today.  Then that i would have some granola and honey for breakfast.

Shockingly i have never been a leopard print lover, and i am not sure where this has come from all of a sudden, but i am really warming to it of late. I just think these little brogues would look beautiful with my new Winter coat (don't ask - it will get cold soon), with little black smock dresses, opaques and peterpan collars; with skinny black tweed trousers, white tucked in blouses and little black bowties….with….oh golly just everything in the world.

So i have framed the shoes.  And put them on the wall.  Thanks Red you are sending me even more stark raving bonkers!!

You can view the little lovelies here but for the moment they are unfortunately out of stock.  Obviously they have sent other people stark raving bonkers for them too.  But i shall keep checking back and you will be the first to know when i get a pair they are available again!
