Unze London – ‘Diamonds are a girls best friend’

‘Diamonds are a girls best friend’ – how right they are!

The Eastern world has always showed their love for bling in the right way and can teach us a trick or two when it comes footwear. From J Lo to Heidi Klum, the red carpet is always glistening with heavenly creations by Christian Louboutin and Manolo Blahnik, but a pocket friendly alternative can be found at a little treasure chest called Unze.

From the moment you walk into an Unze shoe store, you are quite literally blinded by sparkling Swarovski and rhinestone encrusted shoes. With Bollywood music playing in the background you’ll find yourself imagining yourself breaking into song and dance at the starting point of ‘shoes, glorious shoes….’

From flats to 9 inch heels they stock every style in all colours of the rainbow, so colour matching is never an issue. And if they haven’t got your size in stock there is no need to shed a tear – these lovely people will post it to you as soon as the following day. So, all you need to do is get the pedicure sorted; these guys definitely have the shoes covered.

Added to my wardrobe: Autumn Pumps

Two new additions to my shoe collection-absolute must have pumps for this season. Leopard print with velvet toe, I can’t live without, from Oasis (£35) and a Dynamo slipper from Miss Selfridge (£30),  all over studs and small black heat. These two are super versatile, whether its to complement a day outfit, or for an easy relaxed night time look. I am sure pay-per-wear will be totally justified with these pairs!

Ted Baker PVC Ballerina Pumps

With Autumn approaching fast, I have started a search for that perfect ballet pump. Having been wearing sandals and strappy wedges all summer long, now its the time to cover up those toes and brace them for slightly colder days to come. I have spotted these ‘Safire’ plumps at a Ted Baker store and recon they will be the perfect candidates! PVC ballerina pumps will see me through the rainy season. Glitter bows and branded metallic plaque on the heel add a smart touch to this every day staple, making them oh so irresistible.

SAFIRE – Ballerina pump – £55

As a short girl myself I rarely wear flats, although as I become older I start seeing the appeal of being comfortable over wearing sexy sky-scraping heels. There is quite nothing like slipping into some flats half through a night out. Here is a small selection of evening flats, with a touch of glamour that will do a job of looking good just as well as heels.
