About me

Hello, my name is Amélie Florentine, I love beauty in all its forms but I also have a penchant for art, antiques and pink cakes. I keep a good book by my side at all times and I travel the world in my French Sole shoes, that I’m addicted to almost as much as pink macaroons. As a devoted fan of my most beloved shoe brand I’ll be sharing with you French Sole latests news and my own ideas of how to style their divine footwear with different outfits, so kick off your high heels and enjoy reading my posts!

The Transitional Season Staple

The Transitional Season Staple

Amélie’s Adventures in Vancouver 

Amélie’s Adventures in Vancouver 

It’s said that a leopard can’t change its spots. So, in order to start the new year with a new me, by my feline logic, I rather will be like the jaguar instead. That is, in the form of venturing out on my latest pursuit, […]

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 […]

Puttin’ on the Ritz

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 […]

Escape to the countryside!

Escape to the countryside!

Being a reasonably practical girl and by reasonable, I mean that there isn’t really much reason for me to be practical with what I choose to place upon my feet. After all, I live in London a city that you can walk across from East […]

The Great Gatsby

The Great Gatsby

Today I’m feeling like the cat’s pajamas, wearing my French Sole Carla Heels in white and black leather with a silver deco trim. The reason for me to be looking so hotsy totsy, is that I’m hitting the town tonight, attending my very first Great […]
