Talking Malaysia With Jimmy Choo OBE

Choo is softly-spoken has the calm confidence of a man who has achieved much in life. He is slightly built and smartly dressed. His greying hair is closely cropped and he looks at me with reassuring eyes that are surprisingly light in colour.

In this era of peacock dressing, where designers must display the very pinnacle of creativity or be doomed for the sample sale rail, the shoe has risen to the challenge.

Weekend Shopping: Kicks and Kiddy Shoes

I love shoes. Shoes don't care how much Quality Street you ate over Christmas, the straps won't strain after a big dinner and they are so much easier than clothes to shop for as the sizes tend to be pretty standard across brands, with far less variation than you find in clothing.

Cinderella... Proof That a New Pair of Shoes Can Change Your Life!

I have no time for chunky, plain ugly 'practical' shoes. Why be practical when you can have vertiginous, pointy, platformed, lovelies at the end of your legs?

Plastic Fantastic

The sartorial cupid's arrow is a hard hitter. A couple of weeks ago, I fell head-over-demi-heels in love with a neatly wrapped parcel under the Christmas tree. A transparent indigo clutch in the ideal day to night size made up my first piece of the perspex puzzle.

I am an entrepreneur with a passion for business. For a long time Ben & I pondered upon the idea of setting up and running our own business. On the 1st June 2012 our business dream became a reality and we established YourStudentShoes.com. How did we start it?!...Well it was with £500 left from a student loan.

Today I'm Wearing

Today I'm wearing a unique piece I've only worn once on my blog before. It's a fur caplet/jacket that I bought from what I refer to as a Hong Kong 'high street' shop- it's not a luxury brand, but a chain similar to Warehouse or Topshop, called Cypress.

My outfits and posts have been very simple recently, in part due to my hectic schedule. I apologise if they haven't been super elaborate and detailed, but I guess that makes them more wearable day-to-day anyway!

Some of it's new, all of it's classic (and one has a 50% off deal happening soon that I just know I'm going to regret opening my big mouth about when everyone else gets there before me...).

Clearly, you're going to need something on your feet this autumn, and there's nothing better than a divine pair of ankle boots. From glitter and neon to the perfect chelsea boot, here's hoping you'll find your match with these beauties.

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.

How Many Shoes Are Too Many Shoes?

Shoes. They're quite useful, and some people quite like them. In fact, some people like shoes so much, they will own quite extraordinary numbers.

As readers of my FightForYrWrite blog will know, I'm a huge fan of the American fashion and lifestyle brand Kate Spade New York so, as they prepare for the next phase of their UK store expansion, despite the current sunny spell I wanted to bring you this look at some of my highlights from the new AW12 collection.

Weekend Shopping: We Want Gold

Sarah McGiven | Posted 03.10.2012 | UK Style

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.

Take It or Leave It

There's no feeling quite like loving what you have chosen to wear that day. Equally, there's no other feeling quite like hating it and spending all day dreading seeing anyone you know in the lift. This fear is made worse in the elevators of our busy office where not only is everyone dressed impeccably, but half the space is a mirror. It's like the building is attempting to embarrass you further. Spiteful thing.

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.

Weekend Shopping: Bronze Is Beautiful

As a redhead (for now) bronze is also a really flattering shade for me and one I love wearing both as clothing, accessories and - carefully, no-one's talking matchy-matchy eyes/lips/cheeks 90s MAC Spice style here - cosmetics. Here's my pick of a few great bronze-toned pieces from fashion and beauty through to some gorgeous glassware.

Looking After Your Shoes

Have you brushed your teeth? Have you polished your shoes? Two questions I'd often hear before heading to school. At the time you don't fully understand the benefit, but thanks to my parents making sure I brushed my teeth before going to school and to bed, I have teeth that have been fairly good to me. If you look after them, they last. The same with shoes.

Back in 2008 Christian Louboutin sued Spanish fashion chain Zara over a pair of open-toe shoes which were of a similar design to Louboutin's Yo Yo style with its iconic red sole (which has been a signature of the brand for over 20 years).
