this summer is a time for music festivals, gigs, and the theatre (les miserables!!), and in the meantime i need stuff to distract me from reading shakespeare and james joyce - and this is where my enviable photoshop skills come in.

i'd really like to point out the boots in the last collage. they're made by a company called anello and davide who are based in kensington, london. they hand make all their shoes for each individual customer, and the ones i've pictured are an adaptation of the classic chelsea boot which became popular in the sixties due to the beatles (and many other bands of the time) naming them their footwear of choice. my mum told me she saved all her wages for a pair of her own (mid-calf and silver) but has no idea what happened to them, something i can't quite forgive her for.
for the past few years i've been dreaming of having my own pair custom made - but which colour and material would i choose?!

  1. the pom pom pouch and the pleat corner clutch is gorgeous!

    my choice would definitely be a material and color that goes well with almost any clothing! :D in that way, i can be sure that i'll never run out of reasons not to wear it. hehe. but also, a color & material that is unique and stands out? :\ i'm horrible when it comes to making such decisions. hehe.

    i hope you have a lovely time in york, sweetie! x

  19. Oooh your blog has changed since I last visited! if that's been an age, I'M SORRYYY, uni work gets on top of you. it's suffocating. Aaaanyway, I'd definitely go for a metallic gold ankle boot if I had the choice of designing them, kind of Alisson Mosshart esque. ♥ Claire @ Jazzpad

  36. The necklaces are actually antler. The artist who makes them uses found antlers outside her house in the woods. Pretty cool, right? Thanks, lady! xo

  48. If you are still hankering for a pair of R&B loafers I thought you might like to know that I found a brand on eBay who sells identical ones for about $20! I can't remember the name of the seller but if you look up patent loafers in the buy it now section you should find them.
