With a pair of Brenda heels, a girl can conquer the world.

I adore French Sole ballet flats but I have to agree with Carrie Bradshaw when she said that “I’m very, very comfortable in heels. The higher the better.” In fact, that’s why I’m known amongst my friends for having no fear of heights, while I […]

I definitely need an injection of bright colours in my wardrobe come June. I am, after all, the eternal optimist but one who also believes that if I dress in happy yellow, the sun will always be with me. Hello sunshine! Goodbye rain! Sure, I […]

The Transitional Season Staple

Nothing ever quite prepares you for spring in London. And the recent record-breaking warm spell that we had didn’t really help, as one day I’m dressing in a winter coat and the next, I’m practically naked! It’s enough to drive you to therapy and in […]

Puttin’ on the Ritz

Today I have been ‘Puttin’ on the Ritz’, well so to speak, as rather I was indulging in afternoon tea at London’s grand old hotel which was the inspiration for the title of Irving Berlin’s song. And though I had planned to dress most fashionably […]

The dazzling Love Heart flats!

The dazzling Love Heart flats!

Just like any other girl, I love a little bling. And not just around my finger, I’ll gladly take it in any shape or form at any time of year, though the festive season always seems to lend a little extra sparkle. Such that it is with French Sole’s dazzling red glitter adorned Love Heart flats in grey tartan, which are my new preferred choice of footwear for those wintery nights out in London’s West End.

So many twinkling little stars and so magical that they leave you breathless. That’s what Covent Garden is like in December, London’s theatre land jewel which truly knows how to transform itself for Christmas. It presents a picture-perfect backdrop to my brand new French Sole Love Hearts which sparkle in their shared light, while I wandered through en route to an end-of-year party. And when I passed the piazza’s Christmas tree, just wow! Though running late by now, I had to stop and take it in as well as a few selfies, shame on me. Not just with the tree but also my shoes, reflecting its sparkle, which I was able to get in frame with the help of my friend. Imagine decorating the entire tree in colourful French Sole flats! I exclaimed while presenting my best Vogue look for the camera. Now that’s truly a shoe-aficionado’s dream!

A not that short but very pleasant carbide over to Regent Street and the nearby party, the novelty of Christmas lights was still making me smile, but now, I was surrounded by angels glittering in the sky. Mesmerised by all the glittery spectacle, I completely forgot to pick up a box of truffles for the party. I’m such a snow globe sometimes. So to make it up to the hostess, I ordered her a pair of French Sole Love Hearts, which I know she will cherish, much longer than she would a box of sweets. Merry Christmas!

I’m very curious how other French Sole fans are styling their French Sole Love Heart flats. Do mention #frenchsoleblogbyamelie on your Instagram and I’ll be reposting the most creative looks on our FS page.

With love,
