Last night myself and Mevrou And Lollipops (AKA Clouds) popped into the James Mudge Furniture Studio to check out Spickernell shoes’ new Autumn/Winter collection. Clouds was the perfect date for this particular event as she’s absolutely OBSESSED with skoene and one of the few girls I know who actually owns a pair of Louboutins.
The industrial venue served as a nice contrast against the uber-glamorous shoes.
Guests included Tori from Kiss, Blush and Tell as well as Tamara from Style Scoop.

Upon arrival we got hooked up with champers and then got to peruse the collection that consisted mostly of tall and ankle boots in leather and suede imported from Italy and Spain.
So ja, it looks like ankle boots are here to stay...
Of everything I saw, these babies were my absolute favourites.

I also quite liked these guys, but know myself all too well to buy them; just one walk in the rain (with a pina colada) and they’ll be stuffed.

Designer Sarah Spickernell has just popped out a kid but you’d never know it; girl was rocking leather pants and the kind of ‘pick axe’ heels with which you could climb Mount Everest. Respect.

In the same way that many designer’s have a little signature (all Louboutin shoes have red soles), Spickernell’s all boast a rose gold interior.
Sarah says their price points sit ‘higher than Nine West, but not as much as Mui Mui’.
A list of reasons as to why I'm now considering marrying for money as opposed to true love...
Guests were able to put in a pre-order on the shoes that night, paying 50% now and the balance later. I was very, very tempted to snap up the black and gold numbers, but have decided to blow all my money in Paris instead. (Later this month I’m off to visit my globe-trotting little sister who’s currently living in France).
