I'm always delighted when a collection is unveiled and you pay so much attention to every detail, noticing all the styling items I have carefully selected to go with each look. I love that you always want to know where each piece is from so you can re-create the looks yourself. When I first started styling the shoots I used a lot of my own shoes which were often Vintage or old high street beauties that were serving me well. But it always made me sad when you fell in love with them and I could not point you in the right direction to get your own. So in the latest collections I have tried to find shoes, tights and socks that you available for you to buy right now online or from the high street.
SHOES: I really tried to keep the shoes usage to a minimum this season to give a more uniform look and when stepping in to Office I found the perfect pair of simple Mary Jane's with a chunky 60's heel, you can grab your very own pair in black or brown. I have kept hold of the Brown pair for myself as they are so comfy and work with almost every outfit. I also used some high Brogue lace up's which are photographed above, as you can see they are from Dune and also come in black and brown. Both shoes are currently on offer!
TIGHTS: As the fabrics and prints this season are so rich I wanted to make sure the tights didn't steal any of the lime light, but when I went out to the shops and saw all the amazing autumnal shades and textures I got a tad carried away. I bought so many amazing colours but only used a few in the end to keep things nice and consistent. The wool mustard pair are from Topshop and also come in an over the knee sock that I will be wearing plenty this Winter. The Brown and Grey tights are both from Accessorize and have a lovely texture to them as you can see in the pic above.
So I do hope this info helps you! I'm in no way trying to endorse these products or brands above. Just passing on the info so you can find them easily :)
