It's a day off because it was supposed to be Foo Fighters Friday #FFF #FooFightersFriday

So today was (or as I write this on Tuesday morning*, currently IS) a planned day off for me at Shoeniverse. The plan, as of many months ago was to spend today swanning it up in The City, before Foo Fighters at Wembley Stadium. Pretty cool day ahead, huh?

However as I write this post this has just happened and I am as of yet unsure if the gig will go ahead. So this might not happen in which case an alternative day off will be planned. But hopefully I will be on my way to partying it up in London with Dave Grohl as you read this.

*Updated message from Dave here - I'm still going to have a great day off but I'm GUTTED that the guys are not a part of it

Have a great weekend, and normal posts resume on Monday...

Shoeniverse Spies Something Pretty - Dune Burst Pink Hologram Heeled Court Shoes @ASOS

I was after some pretty evening shoes and whilst browsing through the ASOS site I spotted these. They don't say they are exclusive, however they are not yet in the Southampton Dune store.

Not that I keep tabs on it. Oh, OK, I totally do.

Anyway, there is something so very pleasing about the silvery pink toned holographic hi-shine finish that they immediately piqued my interest. Plus, being from Dune means they are not going to break the bank either. They can be yours for just £85. My only sadface comes from the fact they are not real leather, but if you are a proud Pleather Princess, then go get them.

Taking a look at the beautiful SS15 wedges from Jimmy Choo

Jimmy Choo's SS15 collection is literally full of instant hits. My favourite have to be the cork wedges however, so I thought I'd write a quick post highlighting my favourite three pairs. Retro styling can be chic, and beautiful. Jimmy Choo shows the competition how with this stunning and innovative collection of wedge heel beauties. Starting off with...

NOTION 130 - £450
White Patent and Caramel Mix Vachetta Leather Wooden Wedges

A modern and towering wedge for this season. The layered shades of wood in the cutaway wedge-heel create a unique silhouette and pattern, in a natural palette of earthy tones.

The upper consists of white patent leather across the toe, and a caramel vachetta leather on straps that wrap around the foot and to the ankle. Leather lined, they are finished with an adjustable buckle at the ankle for added support.

Heel height measure 130mm/5.1 inches with a 40mm/1.6 inch platform.

NIMSON 120 - £395
Ocean Mix Suede, Patent, Vachetta and Printed Leather Cork Platforms

This strappy platform sandal has tonal material combined to create a modern update to the cork wedge.

The straps of the upper are an ocean mix of suede, patent and vachetta leather. The sole has printed snakeskin leather around the edge and is leather lined. The cork platform heels are finished with a rubber sole for added grip. A small ankle buckle fastening adds extra support.

Heel height measures 120mm/4.7 inches with a 30mm/1.2 inch platform.

NAYLOR 135 - £425
Natural Elaphe Cork Platforms

These strappy corked heel platform sandals create a unique silhouette and are a modern update to the cork wedge.

Leather lined, the upper is made from natural elaphe. The cork platform heels are finished with a rubber sole for added grip. A small ankle buckle fastening adds extra support.

Heel height measures 135mm/5.3 inches with a 40mm/1.6 inch platform.

Shoeniverse Loves Christian Louboutin Benedetta Patent 120 mm

These are my favourite new Loubies in a little while. The black is classic and timeless of course but I can't help but with for a different finish. Both of these are beautiful, however I would love them in pewter liquid metallic. Or hot pink patent. Perhaps even a glitter strass silver? The sandal themselves is a practically perfect go-to heel. Simple lines, a subtle platform and secure cross straps mean they should feel secure to wear, yet gloriously feminine.

Every season calls for an evening wardrobe update, and "Benedetta's" strappy T-bar silhouette is an irresistible choice. Dance through party season in this glorious black patent leather version.

Or find your inner disco diva and try out the glorious gold version.
