Designer watch

My new shoe obsession

Hello world,
Meet my new shoe obsession that is worth going hungry for two months for.
They’re from Ruthie Davis, an LA-based shoe designer and even though these beauties are from her Autumn/Winter 2010 collection and therefore in the world of fashion quite old by now, I LOVE them!

The most amazing shoes I've seen a while and they're not a pair of Louboutins!

I mean, I really, really LOVe them!
But bar from moving to the US or finding some online retailer that will ship them to Ireland I’ll have to go without.

So this is where that ‘creative streak’ my mother says I’ve got should come in handy. If you can’t buy them, make them.

So these are a simple pair of black court shoes from New Look and with a bit of online research I’m going to turn them into my very own pair of spiked leather heels a la Ruthie Davis using a pair of plain black heels and some spikes I can buy from an online punk store on Ebay.

Let the fun begin…


Fresh out of college with an MA in Journalism, a passion for clothes, fashion and styling shoots, I was also the fashion editor of a magazine my colleagues and I set up called SCOPE magazine, which was disbanded three years ago. For now I'm just a freelance journalist and blogger.
Other than obsessing about fashion, I love theology and history, writing apocalyptic fiction (it's weird, I know!) and the occasional weeekend of horse-riding if I have the time and I don't injure myself in the process.
