PLASTIC FANTASTIC? The 'Jelly Shoes' Issue for Summer 2014

As a fashion blogger, I've come to terms with certain styles of what I like to call Plastic Fantastic shoes. Take for example the Melissa collaborations with both Vivienne Westwood and Jason Wu and the ever beautiful Lady Dragon styles. However this summer the jelly shoe has reared its ugly little head again, and I for one am unable to find myself wholly supportive of the trend.

Some of the more high end versions can be cute - the versions by Furla or even some of the Zare jellies are quite cute - however most of them are great big neon Lego bricks of jellified horror, strapped to your feet and surely no more fashionable than Crocs.

I have made a collection of Jellies - both high street and designer - and I challenge you to find the style that you would dare to wear from the plastic fantastic (perhaps) shoes on sale.

HOLIDAY POST - Summer Date Night feat - ASOS Black Pu V Back Tee Dress and JASON WU Satin Strappy Sandal

As of today I am officially back from holiday, but I figured that I wouldn't have time to blog straight away so this is the last of the super-queue of posts. I do hope that the post queue kept you entertained whilst I was off sunning myself :)

This outfit post came about when I was browsing for new looks and items to add to the Shoeniverse Lyst store and these two were right by each other on my style feed. They'd make such a perfect summer date night pairing that I figured I would have to show you. The dress is down to just £18 too, so even if you want to team it with a pair of black shoes that you already own then I think it's a very worthy investment piece. This dress would be great also if, like me, you have a backpiece tattoo of any kind. It's always good to show off your ink!

In case you haven't seen it before here's the backpiece element (this picture is fresh but it shows it off pretty well) that comes off of my right sleeve tattoo (in progress). If you click the picture you can see more of my ink too. My tattoo artist is an amazing lady called Tori Treasure and she makes incredible bespoke art pieces that you can wear always. I adore her work, and if you are in the UK I would highly recommend her.
