the shoe that stole my heart

I'm writing to you from Valentines day where I find myself in bed alone, boyfriend 400 miles away and the retail emails flooding in with offers only leading me to one thing, online shopping. Of course, interning full time in London I have found no time to shop but only look in awe to the fashion forward women of Shoreditch high street. Every shoe style known to man treads up and down the East London borough daily, from the 90s Forest Gump Cortez to thigh high Stuart Weitzman, but my hero brand every time can be found elegantly poised on the best dressed women. Columbian born Edgardo Osorio takes the lead with Aquazzura.


Look to Aquazurra's website where their SS16 collections reign in beautiful colour order in strappy, pointed toe perfection, a girls best friend when working to elongate anyones pins. Able to shop at Net-A-Porter and Matches Fashion where the best-of collections include brightly coloured, pom-pom ridden stilettos and my favourite mid heel blocked pumps.
While I cannot bare to remember my bank situation, it does not appeal to Aquazzura prices. But never fear, the high street is here (as always with cheapy knock-off replicas). River Island have made some very fairly priced Alexa and Christy dupes and Zara have gone lace-up crazy in their new season.

Fair to say, Aquazzura has been unleashed and has revolutionised the SS16 'IT' shoe. I'm holding out for a wave of high street wonders but if you choose to treat yourself this VDay, say hello to your gift from you to you.

Happy Valentines X
