Shoe Heaven, Shoe Hell

Ever watched "Saturday Kitchen"? James Martins cookery programme that makes for lovely hangover viewing as he makes his unapologetically lethal food- in terms of calories that is: you think you've got a lovely little fish dish going on- sufficiently tasty and still reasonably healthy- then James will sling in a carton of cream and a dollop (blob) of Lurpak and suddenly it's complete.

My point, however, is a lovely feature they do with their various guests: Food Heaven and Food Hell- a dish they love and a dish they loath and it was the unlikely inspiration for this spontaneous little post from the comfort of my train (15 minutes free wifi? East Coast you stingy lot... I will just use my trusty phone!) While far too many celebrities cite lobsters or steak as their "food hell" just to get a decent meal (cheeky. my food hell is certainly cherries and champagne okay?), it's an idea that applies to fashion- one girls lust is another's disgust.

While reading this Sundays Style magazine I spotted a pair of Valentino shoes and instantly fell in love- sexy leopard print, savage studs, pointed toe and a little heel (NICE kitten heels? I surprised myself too...) and the moment I saw them I thought of my friend Nicole- a fellow fashion journo student- who would probably squirm at the sight of said shoes!

While I would happily fling them on with a pair of jeans and a cream blouse and feel tres chic, Nicole- who cites kitten heels and pointy toes as two of the ugliest footwear features around- would probably rather wear Crocs! Each to their own, eh?

I'll take them in every colour if you're listening Valentino?
