They are red patent mary janes that I bought from Faith around 8 years ago in the sales...I've certainly had my wear out of them as they go with almost EVERYTHING and I look after them by getting them re-heeled and re-soled frequently. They also make me smile when I wear them which has got to be a good thing...right??? So if you don't already own at least one pair of red shoes then I reckon you need to sort that out pronto, they're definitely a wardrobe essential.

Back to basics part 2
Weeks can go by without an excuse to wear anything remotely fabulous but last week I had 3 opportunities to dress up so decided to 'go for it'. For the launch event of a new vintage store in Nottingham I decided to wear my red sateen Vivien of Holloway dress, for a 6th form open evening I decided to wear my navy polkadot Stop Staring dress and for a night at a local rockabilly event The Fabulous Hoochie Coochie Club I wore my leopard print Trashy Diva Courtney dress coat. However the common factor (leaving aside the dodgy pose and messy kitchen) was my faithful red shoes.
