From high end to high street, there are some great choices so step outside your jeans comfort zone and try some other denim styles. A shirt dress, these skate shoes and super hot denim heels are topping my wish list this weekend.

I love cold, winter weather but these never ending grey skies are getting me down. Yellow is one of those cheery colours that just makes everything a bit better and brighter. Associated with optimism, happiness and sunshine, it's a great pop colour to wear right now.

NHS podiatric surgeon Emma Supple says that thousands of British women are rendered immobile by high heels. Corrective surgery is costing up to £29 million a year through treatments for bunion or corn removal, toe straightening and joint replacement, or the removal of trapped nerves.

In a month's time I will be starting my job as a student representative. It is a full time job and I will be paid to represent, and act on, the needs, desires and whims of the student body: if I don't do this right, I will feel bad at my job (and I like getting things right).

Low Rise

Kitten heels have a bad reputation. Notoriously unforgiving and frequently spotted on schoolgirls at their first social, your scepticism is justified. As the contrary fashion merry-go-round spins, prepare to embrace a new kind of shoe, a whole load less kitteny. Out with the old, in with the...old. You know the drill.

Weekend Shopping: We Want Gold

Seems there's a gold rush going on at the moment everywhere (even the Team GB trophy cabinet) with glistening, golden shades shining from shop rails, beauty displays and shoe stores. When it comes to metallics I'm usually a silver or bronze girl although I do love a rose gold, especially for eyeshadows and jewellery.

Weekend Shopping: Standout Silver

I love busting out a silver shimmer- it's my go-to, year-round shade for adding sparkle to an outfit and I'm never without my Elsa Peretti for Tiffany open heart hoop style earrings, one of many silver chains and my beloved Frank Gehry torque ring but it's not just for jewellery. My disco ball style silver nails have been drawing lots of unsolicited compliments of late and I would lend someone my kitten for a pair of the silver Isabel Marant wedge heel trainers, pictured below.

The Louboutin Legacy

Long before women were allowed to express themselves fully, the Marquis de Sade said that "the way to a woman's heart is along the path of torment". This was recently quoted in Claudia's Croft interview with Christian Louboutin who stated that, "a little discomfort is balanced by something else, which has to do with desire." Have the French spoken?

Weekend Shopping: New Shoes!

I've had a bad run of it recently with shoes. First my gorgeous new heels inexplicably went from a wonderful, glove-like fit to cutting off the circulation in my toes, then the triple height crepe soles of my beloved vintage pony hair creepers split in two.

Whoever said that women like shoe shopping because they can always find something that fits, LIED. This sad fact, coupled with customers' increasing weariness of mass market, High Street designs and shoddy workmanship, has led to a booming trend for craftsmanship and customisation.

On 'Snow Flower', Female Friendship, and the Madness of High Heels

Arianna Huffington | Posted 10.09.2011 | UK Style
Arianna Huffington

I recently saw a screening of "Snow Flower", a film produced by Wendi Deng Murdoch and Florence Stone and directed by Wayne Wang (who also did "The Joy Luck Club"). The movie chronicles the friendship of two girls in 19th-Century China, and the bond between two of their descendants in present day Shanghai. It's a powerful examination of female friendship, but as I was watching the scene about the cruel tradition of bound feet, I had my own time-shift jump to the present day, thinking about what we women are inflicting on our feet and on ourselves, in the form of impossibly high heels in even the most unlikely of circumstances. In this instance, we do the binding ourselves -- and pay a lot of money for it!
