Lets talk about sandals...

Let's talk sandals... I love the sunshine and it is great to see everyone enjoying it but let's remember our feet! When they get warm they need some TLC and that starts with wearing the right footwear! One quick way to spoil a sunny day out is by having sore feet so read the blog for a few things to think about.

A recent interview I did for BIPC Newcastle as part of their High Street Heros Instagram series and my top piece of advice...

The best piece of business advice I’ve been given is ‘you do you’. As someone without formal training in the industry, I suffered terribly with imposter syndrome & sometimes still do. This year has been the most challenging year of my life but I try to remember that as long as I’m doing ‘me’ I’m trying my best for both myself & the business.

Why I am not wearing my positive pants (or shoes) everyday on lockdown

Why I am not wearing my positive pants (or shoes) everyday on lockdown

I wrote something, it has nothing to do with shoes but I wrote it anyway...

Lockdown...

I know we have a lockdown for all the right reasons and I am sticking to the rules but these posts telling me all the positives about lockdown are driving me mad. These are my honest views - don’t read on if you are wanting your daily dose of positivity!

What they say vs the truth according to me

This Months 'Shoesletter'...

Baby its cold outside...

Well despite a mild start it seems we are finally having a 'proper' Winter - I am really pleased. I love wrapping up in scarves and gloves with boots on and I don't want to be having cold drinks instead of a gorgeous hot chocolate because it's too warm outside!
Finale Shoes Blog Autumn/Winter Photoshoot

Photo shoot for the Autumn/Winter collections

The shoes and boots always look lovely in the shop but it’s nice to have images of them on feet and in different locations too, this helps people imagine how they will fit into their wardrobes and lifestyles. So every season we do a photo shoot, this is one of these things that sounds very glamorous but is actually something we spend ages planning and is pretty hard work but very worth it when you get the shots at the end!

Confessions of a shoe seller - How do you choose what to wear when you work in a shoe shop?

Can you imagine working in Finale and being surrounded by shoes and handbags all day long then having to watch people try them on and look fabulous in them! It is always one of the questions we are asked most often - how do you choose what to have for yourselves each season and what to wear to work?

I wanted to write this blog as we get lots of ladies in the shop looking for shoes, handbags and accessories to match the lovely outfits they have purchased or are about to purchase. We have a wealth of experience in helping our customers find that perfect ‘finale’ to their outfits.
