Back to the Cave…

My darling Shoe Princesses

As SP Emma Bowd disappears into her writers’ cave to commence her next novel, she leaves us with this truly lovely little Shoe Video – High Heel Confidential – jam packed with fascinating shoe ‘goss’ for the shoe enthusiast and interviews with the likes of Manolo Blahnik and Stefano Ferragamo.

The video’s quite long, at 40 plus minutes…so find a quiet moment, put your feet up and enjoy!

Congratulations to the 10 divine Shoe Princesses who won a copy of SP Emma Bowd’s perfect summer holiday beach-read, The Shoe Princess’s Guide to the Galaxy (AUST; UK) from Jane Debster shoes. 

For more special treats exclusive to Jane Debster see Club JD.   

Happy reading my darlings!

Pontiac by Jane DebsterPS.  Before you pack the sparkly sandals and beach tote, may I suggest a quick peek at the black, patent leather ‘Pontiac’ peep toe stiletto.  A timeless addition to any shoe collection with a clever (and comfortable) platform, and ultra-flattering dip-sided silhouette. xx

My Darling Shoe Princesses

As you well know, there’s nothing quite like the adrenalin rush of a Shoe Sale to set the pulse racing.  Imagine how excited I was to accompany SP Emma Bowd to a book-signing at Myer department storein the midst of their end-of-financial-year shoe sale!  Heaven.  Our thanks to the divine Bev and her gorgeous team at Myer Southland (especially the book department) for allowing us to have so much fun!

It’s quite apt that I remind my dear subjects of my Top 5 Tips for Shoe-sale shopping :

1. Yes, you really do need satin lime-green stilettos and purple ankle boots a size too small for you (that’s what panadol was invented for).

2. Wear thin tights and comfy mules or loafers – not glam, but easier when trying on shoes in a hurry.

3.  Always be polite and courteous and never snatch shoes from another Shoe Princess.  Ever.

4. Chant the mantra: “Why buy one pair of sale shoes when I can technically afford to buy five?”

5. Have fun and hopefully you will find that couture stiletto which you would never have been able to afford otherwise.
