Tonight I’m really pleased to welcome onto the blog, journalist and author Tiffany Wright, who has written for some of the top fashion magazines including Cosmopolitan, Marie Claire, Company, Elle … and has a novel out called “Somebody Else’s Shoes”… so,without further ado, welcome Tiffany:
Hello, I’m Tiffany – journalist, author and Proposal planner (WHAT? I hear you say? Don’t worry- I’ll tell you more about that later!) So, how did I become a writer? Well, I suppose it all started when I was doing work experience for Marie Claire magazine. I was surrounded by clothes, accessories and shoes (ahh, the shoes!)and I felt like I had discovered my spiritual home. I ended up working at Elle for nearly a year, before landing a job at Company magazine where I became their Senior Writer. I lived out my magazine days writing about relationships, interviewing celebs and spending hours in the fashion cupboard lusting over every pair of shoes that came in. I eventually left Company and headed ‘down under’ to write for Cosmopolitan magazine in Sydney where I became their ‘Sex and the Cosmo girl’ columnist. Ooh, that was fun! Whilst in Sydney, I decided to write a blog where she wore a different pair of shoes every day for a year. I did it, and has the blisters to show for it! The blog swiftly turned into an idea for my first novel “Somebody Else’s Shoes.”
So,spending time in Sydney, writing for Cosmopolitan mag, and being their “Sex and the Cosmo Girl” columnist for nearly 2 years, what city would you say is for the single woman, Sydney or London?!
Depends on the sort of men you are after!! If you’re after the sporty surfer types with freckled skin, sandy hair and muscles galore then I’d definitely head for Sydney. However my husband would kill me if I didn’t say that the best sorts of men are from Ireland (Yup, I bagged myself a handsome irish man – how lucky am I?)
Thanks Tiffany for chatting to me tonight – I look forward to reading your new jet setting novel and I wish all your ventures every success!

Kellie K Apparel started one evening when my wife was lamenting her lack of clothing options. She wanted to wear a particular top that bared her shoulders, but didn’t want to wear the strapless bra that went under it. When I asked her what was wrong with her current bra, she said she didn’t feel like having to deal with pulling up the bra all night. When I said she should get a new one, she said it wouldn’t matter because she can never find a bra that is both supportive and stays up.
I set about making a crude prototype that consisted of me super-gluing the very first iteration of GeckTeck to one of the strapless bras my wife said wouldn’t stay put. She tried it on and said it fixed the problem. However, I knew I had truly struck gold when one night we were going out, and she once again wanted to wear that top which required her to wear a strapless bra. Instead of using one of her store-bought bras, she grabbed the prototype I built and enjoyed a night of not having to worry about her bra once. At that moment I realized I truly had a great idea for a business.”
It was actually, it was the other way around. I had been aware of the gecko-inspired, wall climbing robots for years. The eureka moment came when I realized my wife had a problem of never being able to find a bra that stayed in place. Once I realized my wife preferred my crude first prototype over her store bought strapless bras, I knew this idea was a winner.
Thanks! A bit of both. Our team at Kellie K is made up of highly trained individuals who have come together to create a cooperative bra that feels good and is functional with a variety of clothes. We’ve explored LA’s fashion district to the get the right fabrics. We’ve worked pattern makers with decades of experience, and gone through tons of trial-and-error to make sure the fit was perfect. For the colors Kellie and Tara separately stated their preferences, then several potential customers were polled.
Currently, we’re focused on creating the best strapless bra on the market. Of course, we’re always bouncing around other ideas.
Yes, during the Kickstarter the bras will be available for purchase and shipped globally.
Dr Roy, what would you like to try to make that you haven’t tried as yet?
Dr. Roy- Shorts or blue jeans, and a t-shirt or casual button. However, my favorite shirt is one made for my former softball team, Base Invaders. It’s a great shirt!
Tara- Most of the time I’m in NY and Company Jeans, Banana Republic shirts and Naturalizers shoes. Since I have a toddler, if it’s not machine washable it’s not in my wardrobe.
Do you have any favourite shops or online sites?
Tara- I buy almost everything online. The delivery guy and I are on a first name basis.
Dr. Roy- I honestly don’t buy many clothes online! In fact, I haven’t bought clothes myself in a long time. Somehow, my wife took control of my wardrobe!
Tara- And she does a great job with it!
What’s next on your clothes/shoe wish list?
Tara- Either An incredible pair of shoes to wear to my friend’s outdoor wedding this fall. Or a pair of gray ankle boots.
Dr. Roy- Ask Kellie K!
Boots or Shoes?
Dr. Roy- Shoes. I live in LA and it never snows or hardly rains here, so there no reason for me to wear boots.
Tara- Can I pick both? All boots are shoes, but not all shoes are boots, so shoes I guess.
Fun Fact- The cowboy boots our actress Kamala wears in the Kicstarter video are her own. She wore them to the shoot and we loved them so much we included them in the video.

Summer is well underway here in the UK and weddings are in the air…my interview this week is with a fabulous bridal company that are definitely worth looking up if you have a wedding coming up later in the year or are planning your nuptials beyond! I’ve been chatting to Amy of Crystal Bridal Accessories…Hi Amy! Please introduce us to yourself and your company:
I’m the MD for Crystal Bridal Accessories, a mum of three girls aged 10 and 5 year old twins and I love shoes!
What made you start up your business?
I was working as an e-learning tutor on a local schools project and discovered I was having twins…I decided that I wanted to take a career break but as I am such a workaholic…I thought perhaps I would need a ‘hobby’ whilst on my break. I love jewellery and I adore shoes – the bridal industry is full of sparkle and glamour and all things beautiful…so this all combined to create Crystal Bridal Accessories. The aim was to create a one-stop shop for the best bridal accessories on the market so that brides can easily find everything they need to accessorize their bridal look!
A bit of both really! I won’t put anything on my website which I wouldn’t wear myself…I really do believe in choosing only the best, most beautiful things and putting them all in one place together. Some of the criteria is based on current bridal dress trends and quality of the items – everything has to be manufactured to a high quality otherwise I won’t even consider it.
You have your own exquisite jewellery range too – where do you get your inspiration from?
The inspiration for my Signature Collection comes quite simply from a mixture of gaps I’ve seen in the jewellery market over the years combined with vintage design! The backdrop necklace was my very first idea for my own piece because I noticed that there simply wasn’t anything so glamorous for brides as a back piece…all the other pieces in the collection are designed to mix and match so that brides can choose one piece – such as the Ava Studs – or add the Ava Necklace and Ava Belt depending on how much glamour they want to create!
What’s the most unusual item of jewellery you’ve designed or have you had any strange design requests?
The most unusual accessory I’ve designed is the Ava bridal belt…it is completely unique as it’s made entirely of crystals and a refreshing change to the other types of bridal sashes you can buy which are all set on ribbon or satin. The brooch with tassels and navette crystals gives it a distinct vintage edge which is all the trend nowadays!
To date, what has been your most popular item ordered from your website/ shop?
This would have to be our rose crystal trailing flower bridal brooch!
My favourite item is our own Grace Forehead band – I love the simplicity of it but it is still such a glamorous fashion statement!
You do a shoe dyeing service for the blushing brides & for other special occasions, so what has been the most popular colour in recent seasons?
Cadbury Purple and Fuchsia are always the most popular colours – but we have seen a trend for more peach / blush nude shades as well recently.
Personal now – what outfits and shoes would you normally be found wearing?
Do you have any favourite shops or online sites?
Asos…of course, Zara, Mango… and as I’m a mum, I love the French site Vertbaudet for their pretty kidswear!
What’s next on your clothes/shoe wish list?
Hmmm…very practical…but I’ve got my eye on a Knomo laptop trolley for my trips away
OMG…shoes all the way! I’m not really a boots person…a pair of peep toe heels transform your look instantly!

This week I’m so excited to be chatting to the delightful Janey Rosen, author of The Sebastian Trilogy, the trio of books that are rapidly making headway up the best sellers lists… Hi Janey, welcome to the blog …
What was the inspiration behind the creation of the Sebastian Series?
Boots or Shoes?
Links you would like to share:
Thank you Janey! I wish you continued success with your writing – I look forward to reading your thriller but in the meantime I’ll settle for a summer of good reading with Sebastian & Co…

I adore Northampton Shoe Museum – it is a place worth visiting for both its shoe collection (2nd largest collection in the world, the largest being in Canada) and the attached art gallery is just as fine! So, this week I’m delighted to be chatting to Councillor Brandon Eldred who is not only the councillor responsible for this gorgeous place, but an avid fan of the Museum too …so, welcome Brandon, please introduce yourself:
I am Brandon Eldred, Northampton Borough Council cabinet member for community engagement. Optimising the reach and appeal of the museum service falls within my remit.
Northampton Shoe Museum is totally awesome – I was blown away when I visited – caring for the largest collection of objects charting the history of shoes in the world is a big responsibility! Your staff have oodles of enthusiasm for their job. What was the inspiration behind the creation of the Shoe Collection?
The museum staff do indeed have oodles of enthusiasm and a real pride in what they do. Northampton Museum and Art Gallery was founded on in 1865. The footwear collection was started in 1873 by Moses Philip Manfield, a Northampton shoe manufacturer, so that local workers could see specimens of boots and shoes made elsewhere in the world. Since then the collection has grown to include many examples of Northamptonshire’s shoe industry. We are still collecting today from all over the world. The collection also represents the best of British. The best of British includes current footwear manufactured in Northampton and the county, which we are immensely proud of.
What exhibition or showcase has been the most popular?
Our exhibitions appeal to a wide audience and there is always something going on to suit all tastes and interests. One of our most recent popular exhibitions was ‘If We Could Be Heroes’, which celebrated the 25th anniversary of the iconic Northampton based company Jeffery-West. Jeffery-West is creating some of the most exciting men’s footwear today, and the exhibition featured a selection of their shoes alongside quirky and beautiful objects from the museum’s social history, archaeology, geology and art collections – all chosen and arranged by the designer half of Jeffery-West, Guy West. It was a visual feast for the eyes.
I caught the Jeffery-West exhibition too and my husband started a love affair with Jeffery-West shoes ever since!! Have you got a favourite out of all the exhibitions/showcases?
I have to say I have real interest in the sports shoes. Through the generosity of external funding we have built up our sports footwear and sneaker collection over the last three years. Today we have over 800 examples, which make the Northampton sneaker collection the finest in the public domain. My particular favourites are a pair of signed David Beckham boots from early on in his career, a pair of motor racing shoes worn by Emerson Fittipaldi and the running spikes worn by Christopher Chataway. He wore these spikes when taking part in the four minute mile at Iffley Road in Oxford on 6 May 1954. The race included Chris Brasher, Roger Bannister and Chris Chataway and it was during this race that Bannister became the first athlete to break the four-minute barrier for the mile in a time of three minutes 59.4 seconds.
The facilities at the Museum are fantastic – it’s a valuable source of reference for budding shoe designers, a great place for modern shoe designers to showcase their talents, a history lesson for Northampton’s schoolchildren and it is a shrine for those who have a deep love for footwear – what do you feel is the Museum’s main purpose?
The museum’s vision is to generate and increase cultural awareness and aspiration in Northampton. Its mission is to provide the lead and be the principal focus for heritage, artistic and cultural interest for all citizens and visitors to Northampton. The overall purpose of the museum service is to provide high quality museum facilities, activities and opportunities that meet the needs of our diverse communities now and in the future. Caring for the town’s many fine collections, including the boot and shoe collection, engaging with communities through education and hosting an ever-changing array of exhibition and events are our three main drivers. We promote participation, innovation and life-long learning through the direct provision of services and by working in partnership with others. The museum is also one of Northampton’s key cultural attractions that draws visitors from far and wide
When my children were young they always wanted to look at the elephant boot whenever we visited the museum. Even now I never resist the opportunity to see it when I pop in. A boot for an elephant is quite something to see. The Elephant Boot is one of four boots made by Lotus for the British Alpine Hannibal Expedition. The expedition aimed to recreate and track Hannibal’s route during his invasion of Italy in the 3rd Century BC. Although often disputed by historians, chroniclers reported that Hannibal crossed the Alps with 37 surviving elephants to take into battle.
The British Alpine Hannibal Exhibition asked the question: Can an elephant cross the Alps? Turin Zoo was generous enough to provide the non-geological materials. Her name was Jumbo. Jumbo traveled 150 miles in 10 days from France to Susa in Italy. The result of the expedition’s experiment suggested that elephants can indeed cross the Alps. To protect Jumbo from the weather she had a canvas coat and trunk cover and made and a set of canvas and leather boots to protect her feet. These boots were made by craftsmen at Lotus Ltd using the patterns supplied. To find out the size of her feet the elephant stood on a large sheet of paper and someone drew round her feet. Unfortunately Jumbo was unable to finish the last eight kilometres of the expedition, as the track was considered unsafe.
Is there any footwear missing from the Shoe Collection that the Museum would love to add?
The shoe collection is extensive and consists of:
- Footwear – more than 12,000 items ranging from ancient Egyptian to contemporary design
- Accessories – including buckles, laces, shoe horns, trees, spats, leggings and polish
- Shoemaking tools, machines and components – including lasts
- Retail trade material – including shop furniture, fittings and advertising material
- Archive material – including trade journals, company catalogues, books and photographs
- Fine and decorative art – including paintings and prints depicting shoes and shoemaking
- Index of shoemakers and shoemaking firms – from the Roman period onwards
- Index of concealed shoes – hidden in buildings to bring good luck
- Specialist reference library
As you can see the collection is really extensive, but having spoken to the museum staff, I can tell you that we still have gaps we would like to fill. We are particularly keen to hear from anyone who would like to gift or donate the following:
- Shoes with stories – shoes that you worked in, met the love of your life in, wore on a holiday or took part in an extraordinary challenge in. The shoes might reflect exceptional or everyday stories
- Designer shoes – in particular Vivienne Westwood, Gucci, Chanel, Alexander McQueen, Jimmy Choo, Roger Vivier, André Courrèges or early Salvatore Ferragamo
- Celebrity shoes – shoes that have belonged to famous or significant people
- Shoe catalogues, non-designer contemporary footwear, footwear from South America and items relating to shoe retail
Are the shoes/footwear donations or are they bought for the purpose of adding to the shoe collection or a bit of both?
We acquire items in many different ways, including donations, purchases and bequests. Not a week goes by without a member of the public bringing something into the museum or contacting us to offer an item or items for the shoe collection. We have also benefited from the generosity of local shoe manufacturers and national designers in donating examples of their current designs. Recent donations include footwear from Jeffery-West, Hotter and Prada.
We have a varied and interesting choice of future exhibitions for visitors to come and see this year. Our main gallery and shoe lounge are devoted to showcasing an ever-changing array of shoe exhibitions. We have an exciting exhibition on at the moment that features Norman Walsh English Sports Footwear. Norman Walsh started out as an apprentice shoemaker in 1945 for J.W Foster & Sons. His outstanding shoemaking skills were soon recognised and he made the running spikes for the British Athletics team at the 1948 London Olympics including those worn by the winner of the 100m Alistair McCorquedale. In 1961 Norman founded the Walsh business on his own and became a specialist in making footwear for Rugby League and fell running. Coming up in July we have an exhibition on Mod culture that explores all things Mod – the history, music and style. The exhibition ties neatly in with a concert by Paul Weller in July staged in the beautiful grounds of Delapre Abbey in Northampton. In October we will be presenting Strictly Northampton, which will look at all things dance orientated in the town.

Thank you for the interesting insight into the Museum … I can’t wait to revisit very soon!!!
I like to welcome onto the blog this week a lady who oozes sophistication, coolness, glamour and quite a lot of business savvy !!! She is the delightful Celia Sawyer from the Channel 4 TV Programme Four Rooms, airing in the UK every Friday at 8pm …. make a note in your diary, electronic or otherwise ( yep, I still use my faithful filofax!). A big, warm welcome Celia … tell us about yourself :
Hi, I’m Celia Sawyer, a self made multi millionaire business woman who has various businesses including luxury interior design, property developing, film investment, dealing in antiques and collectibles and TV star of Channel 4’s Four Rooms . I am also a mother of 2.
How did you first get involved with the TV series “Four Rooms”?
I have an interior design business, and had seen the show as I also deal in collectables for my clients, so I saw an advertisement for the show asking for images of interesting objects, so I sent a photo of myself and said “How about me as one of your dealers?”
Great approach, Celia!
It is strange when you look at items like Hitler’s toilet, you just cannot believe people have these items in their possession! Some of the dealers get quite competitive and the atmosphere gets a bit strained at times with everyone after one item, and we sometimes don’t speak for a day or so.
During the series, have you come across any designs that have made an impression on you? Have you “pinched” any ideas for your own home?
The series is more about items, as opposed to designs, however I do get inspired by some of the more beautiful items brought on to the show and they give me ideas for my schemes. I have the Road Kill Couture in my home on display!
What do you like best about being a TV host?
It’s nice that people, who have seen the show, come to me for advice… I like to help if I can!
Mmmmm… an interesting question, but probably a role on TV that is inspirational and can give the public help to realise that “you can do it too”
Any future plans in the pipeline that you can share?
Things in the pipeline that have to stay there for now I’m afraid, but you will be seeing more of me I hope!
Oooh… Sounds good!… So, personal now – what outfits and shoes would you normally be found wearing?
Normally bodycon outfits… I like Donna Karan dresses and suits, Alexander McQueen jewellery, Burberry metallic macs. I train hard fitness wise, so I like to wear things to show my hard work off! Burberry boots, Louboutins and strappy sandles are my favourites, high and glitzy!
Do you have any favourite shops or online sites?
I love going to Harvey Nichols with the personal shopping team. They rush around for me and grab all sorts that I would never be able to find. I often look at Net-a-Porter online, but I really like trying on clothes first as I’m very fussy, so it’s often just for ideas!
For someone to make me something outstanding for my next TV debut – sexy with some great long boots to match!
Boots or Shoes?
I love both. Firstly, winter time I live in boots, either Burberry long ones with very high heels, my vintage 60s platforms (10 quid!) or my Louboutin ankle boots. In the summer I love strappy platforms, something unusual like my new Gianvito Rossi sandals which change colour in different light.
Links you would like to share e.g. website/facebook/twitter etc,so that readers can find out more information about you!
Thanks for a fascinating interview … those Gianvito Rossi sandals sound awesome Celia! Don’t forget everybody, tune in Channel 4, Fridays at 8pm!

This week I’m absolutely delighted to welcome on to the blog the bubbly Tink from Bedhead Boutique – I was lucky enough to receive one of her fabulous vinyl record clutches for my birthday from my darling daughter (Love it !)- and just this weekend Tink has started making the vinyl record bags with a handle as an option too! So without further ado, Tink, welcome and please introduce yourself:Hi there, I’m Tink, Owner and designer at Rockin’ Rockette’s Bedhead Boutique! I created Bedhead Boutique almost by accident! I had got so fed up of not being able to find any fun and quirky accessories in my local area that I started to make them for myself instead. It wasn’t long before people were constantly asking me where I’d got things from and as if by magic Bedhead Boutique was born! I initially started making headscarves as, for me, they are a Godsend for my phenomenal bed hair (hence the name!) and at the same time help me to achieve that pinup/50s look I strive for. It wasn’t long until my creative juices started flowing though and before long I started branching out into all kinds of pinup accessories. I found my passion for pinup and 50s fashion in my early twenties when I’d finally reached the age where I’d stopped worrying so much about fitting in and started to think about how I wanted to look and what kind of things would make the best of my, erm, voluptuous figure! Once I started down this route there was no going back as I finally felt like I’d found my true style. I now take great pleasure in designing and making things for others to help them achieve the style they strive for. I particularly love taking on custom orders as I love anything that’s a bit unique.
Initially my inspiration came from seeing the vinyl record bowls people make by melting the records then shaping them over a bowl. I thought it was such a fab idea and a great way to recycle old records which would otherwise just gather dust. From then I tried to think of other things that could be made from them. I looked online at other items people had made from records and saw that someone had made a large handbag from two records. Although I loved the idea of a vinyl record handbag I wasn’t impressed with the design as the record was covered in rivets and it looked somewhat bulky and mechanical! That’s when I decided that a clutch bag would be a great idea and be the perfect finishing touch to pretty much all of my favourite outfits! From there I spent about 3 months trying out different ideas and perfecting my design (not to mention testing about 12 different glues!) before I was finally happy with the finished product you see today.
What’s the most unusual item you’ve designed or have you had any strange design requests?
My most unusual request was from a lady who asked if I could make my baby bandana dribble bibs in adult sizes. Initially I thought nothing of it as I’ve made larger ones in the past for teenagers with disabilities who don’t want a childish bib. However, she then told me it was for her husband who constantly spills his dinner all down him and she wanted to wrap them up for him for his birthday as a joke… but then actually make him wear them!
To date, what has been your most popular item?
My most popular item to date is definitely my vinyl record clutch bags. I think it’s because they can be made in any fabric and with a record that’s special to the customer, should they wish to provide it. One of my proudest moments was when I was asked to make one for a lady to carry on her wedding day. The record was hers and her fiancé’s song together and it was made with red and white polka dot fabric to go with the 50s polka dot theme of her wedding. It’s so lovely to think that one of my items will be part of someone’s special day.
What’s your most favourite item in your collection or have ever made?
My favourite item I’ve made so far is probably the dogtooth shoe bows because I made them for my mum who was struggling to find any dogtooth shoes anywhere to match her handbag! My mum has had a hip replacement and a knee replacement and suffers a great deal with arthritis so finds it very difficult to get shoes to fit her that are comfortable to wear. She’s always saying that all the pretty shoes have such high heels and she wishes she could wear them. Now she can just clip the bows onto her comfy shoes and hey presto – they’re transformed!
Any new additions to your collection in the pipeline?
I have loads of new products coming up soon. I will shortly be making more fascinators and introducing some bags with handles and some purses. I’ll also soon be making alternative children’s clothes and possible some adult dresses too!
Personal now – what outfits and shoes would you normally be found wearing?
During the day I will almost always be wearing a headscarf to cover up my messy mop of hair! I’ll usually be wearing some coloured jeans and a pretty cardi with motifs on – either skulls or swallows or anchors or something similar. If the weather is nice I’ll most likely be in a pretty summer dress or maxi dress. I almost always wear cute pumps during the day as they’re easy to slip on and off when going in and out of the house and just so comfortable to wear! On a night out you’ll find me in a rockabilly swing dress or a sleek and sexy pencil dress. Almost always a halterneck with a sweetheart neckline as I find them the most flattering. Oh and of course it has to be some killer heels for a night out – at least for most of the night anyway!
Do you have any favourite shops or online sites ?
Pretty much all of my favourite shops are online. I love Hell Bunny clothing and pinup girl clothing. On the high street I love Dorothy Perkins as they are one of the few shops who do bigger sizes in things that aren’t just basically a tent with a hole for your head! I also love Office for shoes.
Next on my wish list is a dress made of the Marvel fabric I use to make some of my accessories! I just need to find the time to make it now!
Boots or Shoes?
Definitely shoes – I have tiny ankles but chunky calves so it’s a nightmare to get boots to fit me properly! Besides, shoes are just sexier!

I’m nattering this week to a group of ladies who have taken the UK by storm performing their energetic shows at events and private parties and they are soon to wow audiences in Europe too …fire eating, pole dancing, dancing on the bar Coyote Ugly style…it’s a show well worth seeing! So welcome ladies, please introduce yourselves:
Whether you want a full stage show or a Coyote Ugly moment in your bar, our girls are ready when you are. Each girl has an individual talent they like to show off, it normally involves Angle Grinders, a Pole, some Chairs, Fire Dancing, Fire Poi, Fire Eating and Fire Breathing, we do it all.
Our girls create a wild, jaw-dropping show, which is never the same twice.
You are very busy ladies – what motivated you all to start fire eating, pole dancing, grinding, doing burlesque etc?
I personally fell off a pole and rolly-pollied off it! Sometimes out clothes get caught when we are trying to whip them off and a few other minor things like that! Nothing too bad.
I’ve watched you all flitting around the stage, performing Coyote Ugly style on the bar counters plus getting into the groove on the dance floor ( more rocking than grooving to be honest!) – so what are your fitness secrets to maintain your endless energy you all seem to possess?
I think Red Bull! We are all a little crazy as we get so pumped up for shows. The next day is the total opposite!
Favourite outfit/shoes that you wear for performing?
We love our heels! MASSIVE platform heels and shoes! We have to pick shoes that make us look HOT but also good to walk around playing with fire in!
Love your tattoos ladies – any stories about them at all?
I’m sure we all have stories about our tattoos, but they are probably all boring ones!
Oh god that’s a hard one! We use Limp Bizkit for our show alot, so I’d say them!
Is there any performance/ show you would like try to try that you haven’t tried as yet?
I’m not sure! We love doing all shows and we already have done alot of unusual shows from stag parties to festivals!
At home, what outfits and shoes would you normally be found wearing?
Tete would be chunky jewellery, hello kitty dresses and looking super cute. Missy will be in ripped black tights and a band tshirt with heels. Rebecca in her DC’s and funky tights and myself in skinny jeans, crop top and my vans!
Have you any favourite shops/online sites?
Boots or Shoes?
SHOES! None of us are really boot girls, Missy has a pair of PVC black thigh-high boots she wears on the pole. Our fuel gets everywhere and ruins are shoes, so we ALWAYS find new ones!
Links you would like to share e.g. website/facebook/twitter etc so that readers can find out more info/follow you
Thanks girls…I’m looking forward to seeing you again very soon!
