Meeting with the Queen.

So yesterday I had a meeting with the Queen. Well, not the ACTUAL Queen (that would have been amazing as I do love her so) but this meeting was with my friend Queenie. Queenie is a fabulous stylist and make up artist extraordinaire and we have been friends for years and basically thought it was high time that we did a little collaboration. If I'm honest it was pretty much just an excuse for us to play dress up and drink A LOT of wine.

So I arrived at Queenies studio with a bag full of vintage treasures and very sore feet. I don't know if you noticed but the shoes I was wearing yesterday are sky high and cor did they hurt my feet. Queenie told me I needed to acclimatise my feet to wearing such types of shoes and that I basically should just wear them all the time. Then I had the brainwave. How awesome would it be to do a week in the life of a pair of shoes? I would get a chance to wear the shoes in and along with Queenies styling skills and amazing clothes these shoes would get put with all kinds of different outfits.

So I bundled out all the vintage pieces I wanted to wear this week and we set to work...


A couple of hours and two bottles of wine later I had my outfits planned for the week. Her studio now looked a bit like a bombsite, we'd danced a bit to Rihanna and I had an ever bigger bag of goodies to go home with. We celebrated with some cocktails, as you do...

So here are the shoes...


And here is Day One...



My vintage pieces today are this amazing scarf (courtesy of Queenie) and vintage earrings (courtesy of my Ma).

Check back tomorrow to see how my feet are holding up and more about the majesty herself.
