Well, that was my reaction anyway. I haven't paid much attention to the brand for the past few years as I began to find it a bit bland (sorry!).
Anyway, last night I was invited to an event at the new Bertie store on South Molton Street and boy was I surprised! Bertie's got kinda cool.
That's the new campaign, presented in a newspaper style booklet. I like the retro vibe...though I'd like to see more of the shoes themselves. I'm always a sucker for a bit of black and white.
After I had my nails painted by a lovely girl from 'Models Own' (priorities first obvs!)...
(I'm all about the natural-ish colours right now)
...I had a nosy around the store and here are my three faves from the current collection:
Well, I love patent, I love high and I love statements. Therefore these wedge booties are perfect. The only thing I don't like about them, is that they didn't have my size. Boo!
I love an over-the-knee boot and something I've been advised that I need to invest in is flats, so these are the perfect solution in my eyes. I reckon they could be made to look really chic but also grungy too. Chameleon boots - I like it!
These are pretty cool too, don't you think? Rough with a soft edge.
Guess which ones I went for...
And a close up...
I'm actually quite surprised that I chose these as they aren't very me, but coupled with the fact that they were one of few pairs in my size and that I felt like giving my wardrobe a bit of kick up the back-side, I'm pretty happy with them. I think they'll add some much needed interest to my wardrobe!!
