With the last days of summer fast approaching it is time to start getting ready for new season and welcome Autumn/Winter 2012 fashion. In the first post dedicated to autumn wardrobe overhaul I have decided to concentrate on staple and classic item of my own wardrobe (and millions of other wardrobes around the globe for that matter) – biker boots. Living in London, with its mono-season weather I can get away with wearing biker boots practically every day, but it is autumn in particular when I simply don’t leave the house without a pair of them on. They are cool, comfy and city-friendly, which is more or less the only requirements I have for my footwear. Below I picked out my favourites that will suit every wallet with a price ranging from £30 to £650, enjoy!
- Frye Biker Boot, £177, available at farfetch.com – if you like them neat and uncluttered, this boot is for you
- Ash Titan Antique Studded Ankle Boots, £279 – from the brand that makes some of the most classic biker boots on high street
- Fiorentini and Baker Elis Eternity Studded Biker Boot, £295, available at net-a-porter.com – slouchy top for misfit look
- Via Roma XV. S.Mortiz Biker Boot, £146, available at farfetch.com – with tired looking cotton panel those boots have a nicely worn-in look
- Asos America Biker Boot, £55 – perfect choice for those on the budget
- Topshop Davidson Biker Wellies, £30 – for a rainy day
- Jimmy Choo Rabbit Lined Leather Biker Boots, £650, available at net-a-porter.com – the investment piece made to last and thanks to the fury lining will be in use both autumn and winter
- Ash Trash Antique Studded Leather Boots, £309 – the tall version of the previously shown Ash boot and it comes in brown, for those bored of black
- River Island Lace Up Biker Boots, £75 – just in case buckles are not enough

I have been a fan of Jimmy Choo candy clutch for a while and especially this season when it got a photographic print update. And now that I am back from holiday and longing for reminders of sun, sea and all things wonderful, nothing can suit my mood better than those Jimmy Choo clutches. When it is grey and miserable outside – for those who are not used to London weather, grey and miserable is the most suitable way of describing any season and especially this year’s ‘summer’ of ours – the only thing that keeps my spirits high is staring at my cover photo on Facebook where me and my girlfriends are posing for a picture on the beach with sunrise at the background after our last night out of the holiday. All thanks to Jimmy Choo I don’t have to have holiday snaps withdrawal even when I am away from my laptop, all I need is to look down at the clutch to remind myself that somewhere in the world people are enjoying real summer.
But there is yet another reason why this post is currently appropriate. These clutches are still available at reduced prices at Harvey Nichols – thanks to summer sale the price has been cut from £495 to £300! So get yourself down to HN and purchase these desirable pieces of summer!

When British April showers turned into May showers, when you haven’t experience prolonged (more than one hour) sunshine in more than a month, and when (on a more positive note) the festival season is around the corner, you know there is only one thing to do – shop for new wellington boots! In my mind there is only one brand out there that is not just utilitarian but also super cool – Hunter. I myself invested into red Hunter for Jimmy Choo a few seasons ago and have never regretted my decision. But now that it feels like we need wellies not just for festival and out-in-the-country wear, I was looking for something just as practical and fashionable yet less ‘out there’ as my red pair. And I found just the right ones! Shoreditch Ladies Biker Hunters, £95 (my-wardrobe.com). Their short length makes them city friendly, metal plate and buckle makes them luxurious yet tough and a whole resemblance with leather biker boots makes me fall in love with them even more. I don’t know about you, but for me they are the most perfect Hunters ever made. (Cash register sound).

What has everyone been talking about since LV Autumn/Winter show? The LV wellies of course! (LV would disagree with my terminology – they named this rubber creation Fetish High Boot.) Now they are available to buy and definitely deserve a place on my fashion wishlist.
They are absolutely perfect for London – unarguably the most fashionable way to step out into the rain. Previously it was all about Jimmy Choo and Hunter collaboration (I own a beautiful pair in red) but now the world of wellies has been improved by adding a high heel. Now wellies are ready to rock the urban environment.
Available in 3 colours – green, black and red for £630.

Generally, I am obsessed with Jimmy Choo. After all the different shoes I wore over the years that made me feel like I would rather walk bare foot across hot coal just after a few hours, Jimmy Choo is a find. I am sure it all depends on foot shape and some would find Christian Louboutin shoes comfortable (even though he himself does not believe his shoes are made for comfort). Nevertheless I have been converted – all my shoe investments for the last year have been into Jimmy Choo’s. For me its not just buying a beautifully crafted piece of shoe art, it is buying something I could wear and not want to take off!
This new shoe boot has so much to offer – platform, killer heal, a choice of blue or black colour.. I would not think twice about buying this shoe but a £650 price tag means for now, the only place those shoes can take in my life is on my wish list.
