"In 1974 because of Carlo's new found love, 'Bertie' was created"

Last Wednesday night I was one of the many lucky Bloggers to be invited down to the Bertie Event at their store on South Molton street. Not being to familiar with the brand I was so surprised to witness what I saw when I got there. Having being greeted with a Beer and a very smiley Jo (A PR and Marketing Executive at Bertie) I knew I was in for a treat.

The store had a wicked cabin feel to it and felt like a cosy Winter shoe basement that should have been tucked away somewhere in snowy Canada rather than in middle of rainy Bond Street in London. The first thing to catch my eye, were these beauts which my lovely friend Jinny of 'Running in Platforms' straight away slipped her feet into.

I think you'll agree these are absolutely stunning. Not something I would personally wear - as much as I'd love to if I was a bit shorter with smaller feet but they did look amazing on Jinny. Another pair of beauties which were to catch my eye where these amazing Fairisle boots. I absolutely adore fairisle print and seeing these badboys actually made me look quite forward to the colder Winter months and dig out my chunky knits to accompany these.

After recently purchasing my very first pair of wedges I was delighted to see some of the gorgeous ones that Bertie had to offer. Perfect with jeans and a tee for the day or a little black number for the evening! I was gutted when they didn't have my size in them but I am definately going back again to try them on.

As the evening went on the event was becoming packed out with Bloggers all keen to give their views on the amazing Bertie collection and grab their free pair of shoes. Yes, I did just say FREE PAIR OF SHOES. I have never seen so many girls squeal over so many shoes and trying on different pairs. There was no limit as to what each of us could take away. It was literally the best pick 'n' mix ever, from ballet shoes to brogues and from knee high boots to Prada-esque heeled platforms every girl went away with a smile on her face. I personally opted for a pair of blood red brogues with purple velvet laces. One of the most beautiful pair of shoes I think I own! Congrats on an amazing collection Bertie and I will without a doubt be back soon for more.
