Last month I was privileged to attend an exclusive blogger fashion evening excitingly entitled “Shoetopia” at Intu Trafford Centre, Manchester. We were treated to a Skinny Champagne reception at Circle 360 Champagne bar and tucked into yummy shoe cupcakes. Well actually I tell a lie; I was 12 week pregnant at this point (and still keeping schtum) and so begrudgingly had to sip virgin cocktails whilst the other bloggers quaffed champers all night.
The evening was great fun. We enjoyed a presentation from shoe psychologist Kate Nightingale, who took us through some of the key trends for SS14 in shoes and boots.
If you are intrigued to learn more about fashion psychology, read my interview with Kate tomorrow.
So without further ado, here are the spring footwear trends and what they say about you…..
We finished the evening with a vintage shoe quiz, testing our knowledge of shoes through the ages. I did appallingly badly at the quiz – but t'was very difficult!
If you fancy a go, have a look at the images below and try to identify which decade they come from (answers at the bottom of the page).
- White stilettos, 1960-1965
- Men’s platforms, circa 1973
- Women’s pearlised shoe, 1956
- Men’s co-respondent shoe, circa 1930
- Gold kid bar shoes, 1905-1910
