Last week was press-day central for me, but here is the last of them, and by no means the least! Bertie is a shoe brand I absolutely love, it's the little sister of Dune, and their vintage inspired styles, faded colour scheme and love of loafers, brogues, oxfords and all things twee and fashion blogger-y is what my shoe-related dreams are made of....

I've shown off my previous Bertie purchases before, but they've always been in the sale (did I mention they do great sales?) so it was nice to see their new Spring/Summer collection first, rather than at the tale end of the season as is my usual way!

I'm clearly not the only one because it got ridiculously busy really quickly, so I didn't get any decent photos of the other bloggers there, only shoes! I did see the ever lovely Jazmine, Sarah and Amy and met Ellie and Sally&Ross for the first time which was so nice.

I think the stand-out shoes of the evening were the gorgeous maroon wedges which I photographed above, and which pretty much every blogger there was in love with. There were a mixture of really lovely 'sensible' shoes as well as plenty of ridiculously tall I'd-never-wear-them-but-damn-they're-pretty shoes to lust after too!

In the interest of full disclosure Bertie were generous enough to give me a pair of shoes to take home with me, and although my heartstrings were tugged in many directions I ended up chosing the pale pink lace ups that you can just see behind the brown version in the first photo.
