SPRING READY – FRANKIE4

A few weeks ago I was extremely lucky to be invited to preview Frankie4 Footwear new season – along with a group of the most gorgeous women.

It was a day full of footwear, fashion and fun and maybe a couple of glasses of champagne.

Now if you follow me on Instagram you will know that I have serious obsession with shoes and Frankie4 are a big part of that obsession.

I love sky high heels but always seem to end up with very sore and sometimes numb feet if there is any walking involved. Frankie4 have become my go to shoes if I’m doing a lot of walking or travelling not just because they are comfortable but also  because they look fabulous.

Now before I go any further just a little bit about Frankie4 and the reason that they are so comfortable. They are the brain child of Caroline – she is a podiatrist that saw a real need amongst her patients for not only shoes that were a joy to their feet but also were a stylish to wear, not always an easy combination to achieve but one that Caroline has nailed.

The day started with a quick make-up session – I was a little bit spoilt as Rachael from Ruby and Lilli actually offered to do my makeup beforehand (have I mentioned how talented that lady is) so I donated my makeup time to the gorgeous Cate from Individual Style my partner in crime for the day (not that she needed it).

Then it was off to the racks of clothes from Metalicus and Solito to pick clothes to go with the new season Frankie4  sandals when had been given to wear.

The sandals that I got to play with were the MARGiE Gold  $199.95 and PENNi Black Reptile $209.95.

The MARGiE Gold are a versatile sandal for spring/summer they are the perfect shoe when you have an outfit that you just don’t know what colour shoes to go with it. As you can see from the below photos I choose two completely different outfits in colour and bold print and the sandals works equally well with both of them.

A big PLUS of the MARGiE Gold is that is have velcro adjustable straps – both across the front of the foot and around the ankle (cleverly hidden by a faux buckle). This means this sandal will fit a variety of different sized feet – I have quite a narrow foot so found that I could tighten the front so that my foot didn’t flop around.

Now I think every girl needs a pair of black sandals for summer – the PENNi Black Reptile is a great option. The PENNi has a slight heel that makes it a little bit dressy but still stays comfortable if you are walking or standing all day.

The PENNi Black Reptile  also has adjustable velcro straps so fits your foot perfectly. The cross over feature around the ankle holds your foot in the sandal firmly and avoids any slippage.

Now how fabulous is this wall – one the talented ladies from Frankie4 drew this especially for us. I felt quite angelic standing next to it. Cate from Individual Style may have let out a little squeal when she saw it.
