Princess Sparkle

Nine West SP Shoe at Angus & RobertsonMy darling Shoe Princesses, Oh how I do love a sparkly glittery stiletto!  Imagine my excitement upon discovering the Nine West delicacy (left) for The Shoe Princess’s Guide to the Galaxy book display at Angus & Robertson Camberwell.

Oceans of thanks to the lovely Juanita (who also brought in her own fab heels) and her team for letting me take over their store! xx

My darlings, mountains of thanks to the divine Beck and her staff at Angus & Robertson, Eastland, for such a gorgeous reception at SP Emma Bowd’s book-signing today!  Indeed, may I award Beck a special Shoe Princess Commendation for preparing such a pretty book display – resplendent with her very own heels and even a matching handbag (a gift from her adorable boyfriend…top marks Shoe Prince!!).  With more than its fair share of Shoe Princesses to chat to, I had a simply lovely morning amongst kindred spirits. xx

Tripping the Light Fantastic

Australian Shoe FairGreetings, my darling Shoe Princesses from the hallowed halls of the Melbourne Exhibition Centre and the Australian Shoe Fair (ASF).

…where and how does one begin…

Firstly, what an honour and truly fascinating experience it has been for a shoe-consumer (extraordinaire!) like myself, to take a behind-the-scenes peek at the life-cycle of a shoe. 

I’ve been overwhelmed by the many different players in this significant production which I’ve had the enormous fortune to meet, including:  importers, exporters, inventors, designers, manufacturers, captains of industry, family businesses, one-person enterprises, retailers (of all shapes and sizes), shoe-making teachers, stylists, web-based companies, bloggers, publishers, journalists, event organisers, publicists, image consultants, film-makers and philosophers (truly!). 

If the national grid could harness the energy at the ASF, Australia’s greenhouse gas emissions would be halved in one fell swoop.

In short…completely and utterly INSPIRING.

Oceans of thanks to the divine Hailey and Anna from Angus & Robertson for selling The Shoe Princess’s Guide to the Galaxy and A Passion for Shoes to my adoring fans, too!

Over the coming weeks and months I will have great pleasure in introducing you to some of the shoe-related companies and products that have caught my eye at the ASF.  Until then, au revoir, my darlings, and remember,

‘Shoe Princesses are not shoeaholics but footwear connoiseurs’

Honorary Shoe Princess Shoe

Novo Shoe Princess Shoe

My heartfelt congratulations to the 20 divine Shoe Princesses from all around Australia who won a copy of SP Emma Bowd’s novel in the Novo shoes competition!  Of course, it was little surprise to learn that the overwhelming vote for No.1 Celebrity Shoe Princess went to the lovely Sarah Jessica Parker.

I can just imagine SJP in the heavenly scarlet satin bow stiletto by Novo, pictured at left….my favourite shoe in bookstore window displays to date.  My spies reliably inform me that the manager of Angus & Robertson Southland, the gorgeous Jasmina, loved this shoe in her display so much she had to go and buy it! 

Novo Shoes

So, without much ado, it is with great pleasure that I, with the powers vested in me by, well, me, most solemnly declare the Novo scarlet satin bow stiletto the Honorary Shoe Princess Shoe!  xx

Shoe Princess Fashions In The Field

Just when I thought the SP glamometer could not get any higher at SP Emma Bowd’s book signings….the magnificent Troy Pretty and his gorgeous staff at Angus & Robertson raised the bar by decking-out in Shoe Princess t-shirts for the day! 

What a huge amount of fun!  And yet again, we had the pleasure of meeting many delightful shoe princesses who shared their shoe stories with us…thank you!


PS  SP Tania…I’ll be dedicating my new ‘Shoe Are You’ category ‘Chic-n-Cheerful’ to you and your divine Target shoes and D&G sunglasses…keep posted xx
