It's Official, I've Fallen In Love...With Emmy Twenty Shoes

It's not very often that I come across a brand that makes me sit up and take note but this happened recently when Sharon from emmy twenty contacted me. Sharon freely admits that she has an obsession with ballet pumps so much so that after failing to replace her favourite pair due to them being discontinued, she decided to produce her own (as you do!). The result is a small but perfectly formed collection of pumps and I challenge you not to fall in love with every single one of them.

Sharon's ethos is to produce well-made leather flats at an affordable price and it looks as if she's well and truly achieved her goal with the debut collection. Each pair are leather uppers and have padded insoles for extra comfort. Prices range between £45 and £65, all with free UK delivery. They are displayed to perfection on one of the most beautiful websites I have seen in a long time, each pair of shoes lovingly given it's own space and pictures that will make your mouth water (I would liken it to a fabulous glass of chilled Pinot - great accolade indeed from me).

I particularly fell in love with the Upton range which consists of 3 different colour ways. This is the Upton Tan which has a contrasting black toe cap - delicious!

The Hanover Black features metal tabs on the leather bow to give a subtle twist to the classic bow fronted pump. A lovely touch. They also come in tan which are super cute too.

Something a little brighter for the summer and would give any outfit a real pop, the Berkeley Red

Or the Invicta Tan, a classic colour with a edgy design

Sharon has linked up with a fantastic charity, Ovarian Cancer Action charity for the Ovarian Cancer Awareness month and is donating £5 for every pair of Danson Teal pumps sold in March, a very worthy cause indeed.

There are other beautiful ballet pumps too but I'll leave you to enjoy the experience over at emmytwenty website.

And me, which did I choose? Well, as I said at the beginning I fell in love with the Upton range and couldn't resist them in Leopard.

Not long for the weekend and I have a lovely jacket to show you.
