Working away…

I’m slaving hard, mixing sugar and spice and everything nice to make you the sassiest girliest shoes I can!!

Here are some shots from my workshop in China… Be home soon. Can’t wait!!

Choosing materials is so fun and overwhelming! There are so many to choose from

This is my fitting table. A shoe model comes in, tries on the prototypes, and my technician and I correct the lines and the fitting. :)

 Poor little rejects. I’m sorry you didn’t make the cut!

 Leather colors and inspiration tears! My cork wall is my favorite.

See you guys in a few days. I’m almost done. Hopefully I can share much more soon. I hate keeping secrets from you guys!!

Love and kisses,

    Your inspiration helps me please my gf, which is obviously a win (in my book anyway).

    Does anyone have any experience of LONDON shoe shopping? Stopping in town with a girl mate for a bit and she wants some unique purchases – shes not visited London before so some great shops would be a touch!

    If I wasn’t a teacher and I took a different path in life I would do what you are doing. :)

    Your inspiration board has me drooling. Love colour and texture and pattern.

    And just shoes in general.

    I’m looking forward to seeing your collection.

    You have an incredible shoe collection! I keep finding amazing vintage shoes at the moment.

    Very interesting to see a bit of the process that goes into designing a shoe, it must be great to be able to live your passion.

    This is so very cool and exciting. I love the image of the colour swatches, I understand how it would feel impossible to just pick one.
    Totally loving your blog, I can’t wait to find out what comes next!
