Beautiful Bertie...

On Wednesday evening I was one of the lucky Bloggers to be invited to Bertie's Blogger Evening at their James Street store in Covent Garden. After attending their last event I knew it was something not to be missed and I certainly wasn't disappointed!

I was surrounded by some gorgeous shoes from Bertie’s new SS11 collection, not only that but a bucket full of Crabbie’s Ginger Beer, a photobooth (complete with some fun props), a popcorn machine, DJ and of course lots of beautiful bloggers.

Now, I’m not really into shoes that much. Give me a pair of ballerina flats for the day and some plain wedges for the evening and I’m all set. But my oh my, was this about to change. Recently I’ve become a bit of a wedge-o-holic and these peep toe ones were the first to catch my eye. Available in black and tan these beauties are just thing to rock with a sheer shirt and some hareems for the spring. What with all the beautiful weather we’ve been having recently – it’s time to start pushing the winter garments to the back of your wardrobes and bring out the spring clothing!

Last season I was lusting after Bertie brogues and walked away with a red pair with purple velvet laces and this season they yet again have produced more fabulous pairs! These tasseled ones come in red, brown and navy with contrasting coloured tassels. So beautiful! I was really torn between the navy ones and the red...

But then I spotted these...

These cherry buckle wedges were being picked up left, right and centre by everyone and safe to say they were the most popular shoe of the evening so I knew I had to have them. They have a really grungy feel but the maroon colour made them girly at the same time. I knew these would go perfectly with my floral midi skirt from Urban Outfitters and sequin moustache tee from River Island. I didn’t even bother trying them on because I knew straight away they were coming home with me. I left it to lovely Catherine to let me know what the fit was like and then headed straight to the till.

Check out some more of the collection...

I also would very much like this bag in my life!

Catherine, Jinny and I have having fun in the photobooth. (Don't ask what on earth I am doing in the second picture) 

Massive thank you to the team at Bertie for putting on such a fabulous event and the wonderful goody bag (yes there was a goody bag on top of the free shoes - we were spoilt!) It was really lovely to meet more bloggers at the event, including the guys from Louder than Silence, beautiful blog which if you haven't read - go and take a look!

So what are your favourites from the collection? Were you at the Bertie event? If so which ones did you nab?
