This is what happens when my friends and I have a sleepover: We get tipsy, giggle a lot and take a whole LOT of pictures!

This post is a bit of a #LostFiles entry as they were never actually intended for the blog. Whilst backing up my pictures to my external hard drive I came across these pictures of a brainstorming session the night before a shoot I did with shoe designer Ashanti Lou. She is such a talented designer and her shoes are so unique and full of character. It was definitely a challenge for me to style them in a wearable way because even though I loved every pair, there were just some that would be for decorative purposes only (like the candy shoes above that I was obsessed with – I mean I’m not Katy Perry. How would I pull those bad boys off on my way to work? :P) and definitely for braver fashionistas than I!

I have always been somewhat of a shoe fiend. Every girl has their ‘thing’. For some girls its make up, or nails, or bags… but for me it’s shoes. I genuinely see shoes as art, and I used to display them as such on a full wall of shelves in my old apartment way before it became a massive trend (Don’t believe me? Check out this throwback post). I recently filmed 3/4’s of my shoe collection and it took me almost 5 hours. I was horrified to know that I have amassed a total of 98 shoes – half of which I’ve never even worn! I am determined to half my collection by the end of the year. I mean, who needs 98 pairs of shoes?!! I am selling my shoes on depop and adding more and more each week (bear with me, it’s an emotional process). DEPOP @TOYABERRY.
