Autumnal Ankle Boot Inspiration
With Autumn just a few days around the corner, it's time so say “so long” to sandals and start planning a cosier look for your feet. If you're a big fan of iconic street style blog The Sartorialist, you're going to love Where Did U Get That?. The photo/fashion blog of New York-based Londoner Karen is full of fabulous street style from the big issue and, even better, she has a whole category dedicated to autumnal ankle boots. Perfect if you're not quite sure what footwear look you're going for this season!

Whether you've found a perfect vintage pair in your local charity shop, suffered from swollen pregnancy feet or wanted to steal your small-footed friend's shoes, this fabulous tutorial from the always gorgeous Jordan Reid is here to help. Armed with some thick socks and a hair dryer, the multi-talented Jordan turns agonising shoes into comfortable beauties. Lives – changed!
Why Sarah Jessica Parker Just Isn't Carrie Bradshaw
eye4style's blog is chock-full of gorgeousness and fashion inspiration but, as footwear obsessives, we couldn't help but notice a recent post on Sarah Jessica Parker's 2014 footwear collection.
If you're a shoe girl, you'll no doubt know that Sex & the City's Carrie Bradshaw had fundamentally fabulous taste in shoes. But, if that's left you thinking that SJP is a full on footwear icon, you may be mistaken. Released as a Nordstrom exclusive in February of this year, the collection is classic and pretty, certainly, but is it fabulous? Well, we're with eye4style's Dina Fierro on this one...
