She opened her heart to a tearaway...

Miu Miu shoes from http://www.net-a-porter.com/ , tights from New Look.

Aloha! Decided to dedicate this post to my lovely Miu Miu pumps - they were a 21st birthday present from The Boyfriend (I may or may not have dropped a few hints) and one of my most prized possesions!  Any designer items I own tend to be simple and classic, so they'll last forever rather than one season!

Miu Miu is one of my favourite designers right now and I think their shoes had a bit of a 'moment' this winter. Their glitter boots were EVERYWHERE and of course the clever people at Topshop cottoned on quick and made their own version - always handy for us fashion lovers who can't afford to splash £500+ on a pair of shoes whenever we feel like it! Miu Miu was opened in 1993 by Miuccia Prada and has been going strong ever since. I tend to think of them as Prada's cuter younger sister! With 15 year old Hailee Steinfeld as the face of Miu Miu it's obvious that their designs are intended for a younger market. Their clothes are cute and fun whilst still maintaining the chic sophistication of the Prada fashion house. Seems they're onto a winner!

I'll leave you with some of my favourites from Miu Miu. Ciao for now!

She just opened her heart, and threw her cares away

She lives on love street...

Tartan tights by Jonathan Aston

Blue tights from Topshop

Pink tights from Topshop
So lately I have discovered a passion for bright coloured/patterned tights. They've been a life saver over the festive period, brightening up the dullest of dresses! Pink, blue, purple, crochet, leopard print, tartan... I'm now eyeing up Henry Holland's ladder tights! Most Winters I find myself wearing bright dresses with black tights but seem to have done a U-Turn this year - they also work with light girly dresses a la Sarah Jessica Parker! I bought most of mine from Topshop and http://www.mytights.com/ who have a HUGE range of hosiery, well worth a look!
