Can’t remember the last time you washed your hair? Wearing the same loungewear set for nearly five days now? Haven’t seen your bra for weeks?
We’ve all been there, and sometimes you just need your comfys, a tub of ice cream and that episode of Friends you’ve probably seen 10,000 times - especially if you’ve been homeschooling the kids whilst trying to maintain some professionalism on the Zoom conference! Maybe you’re a key worker, fighting this virus head on like the superwoman you are. You might be sick of the sight of your uniform or scrubs but you still get up and go to work with positivity, collapsing in bed with a very large glass of wine, wondering when this will end.
And it’s okay! These are such strange times that it’s so important to do whatever you need to do to get through this. This isn’t the time to learn a new language, rigorously quiz the kids to ensure they are absorbing the lesson plan or run a marathon on your treadmill every day (unless that’s what you’re into!). This is the time for self care. This is the time for family. This is the time for community. This is the time to stay at home.
We’ll level with you here, we sell shoes and bags, not typically your go to purchase during a pandemic. But one thing is for certain, a beautiful shoe helps to spark a little bit of joy and lift your mood if you’re feeling a bit down. They can add a beautiful sense of normality in this crazy life we are living. So we’re still here, safely dispatching orders if you’re in need of a treat and a smile.
We’ve also just announced that we are donating 10% of sales to NHS Charities Together. A fantastic collection of charities who support NHS staff and volunteers caring for Covid-19 patients.
So if you are in the mood for some shoe love - this is our Stay at Home Edit!
The daily exercise trainer.
0-105 Nova Neon Giallo £150
Fresh air and exercise is so important for our mental health. It doesn’t have to be a one hour bike ride in your lycra, a walk through the park will equally make you feel alive. There’s also something incredibly beautiful about the reduced number of cars. You can hear the birds sing and the air feels cleaner. As you walk past someone, they considerately keep their two metre gap with a friendly ‘hello’ exchanged. Life feels simpler.
The 0-105 Nova Neon Giallo is an incredibly comfy trainer perfect for this occasion. We’ve chosen this trainer for it’s neon yellow suede detail - bright and cheerful!
The house party quiz night heel.
EMMA GO Joelle Gold Nappa £169
We’ve never quizzed so much in our entire lives! And it’s getting serious. There’s the nominated quiz master responsible for the pressure of finding a good amount of both easy and hard questions to keep the rest of the group entertained. There’s that one friend who is demanding silence so she can concentrate whilst the filter-loving friend is sat there with the cat filter on making meowing noises. And then it all ends in a haze of gin without anyone really knowing who won, but you’ve had the best night in with your girls.
This occasion calls for the Emma Go Joelle heel in gold nappa. Heels make you feel more confident, so we’re pretty sure you’ll be a far more knowledgeable quiz contestant whilst wearing these! Why not arrange a party night? Everyone has to slap on some makeup, don their favourite dress and strut round the living room in their best heels. You’ll be the envy of the group with these stunning gold statement heels.
The garden glam sandal.
EMMA GO Juliette Gold £140
We’re going to do it - we’re going to talk about the weather! But isn’t it just amazing right now? Enjoy your garden with our new Emma Go Juliette sandal. We’ve opted for this sandal because you could probably spend a good hour holding your feet in the air admiring the sun bouncing off the glitter. It’s a comfy flat so great for running around after the children or if you want to feel glam while potting a plant.
Don’t have a garden? Just sit in your doorway waving these shoes around to make the neighbours jealous!
