Attending an entertaining dinner party featuring poetry on the run - in this instance, featuring the clerihew, a sort-of-limerick - Kittie is wearing a pair of gold Ferragamo sandals against a stunning red sofa and a hefty spritz of Guerlain's Attrape-Coeur.
Charming - and much admired - Jane Brown Mary Janes in two-toned suede kicking up their heels over some chopsticks in one of Kittie's favourite Chinese restaurants late today, partnered with Ormonde Jayne's floral triumph Sampaquita. The heels are beautiful, it's an English label, and they're made in Italy (of course!)
Kittie is re-reading the classic novel about decaying Sicilian nobility Il gattopardo (The Leopard) by Giuseppe di Lampedusa, and suitably inspired, is posed in leopard-print slingbacks with deep brown patent trim by leopard-loving designers Dolce & Gabbana, posed on an H&M leopard-print umbrella on this windswept and drizzly winter's day. (One half of the D&G partnership, Signor Dolce, is Sicilian-born). Worn with a spritz of Amouage Jubilation 25.
OK, it's Sunday, I'm off-duty, so go easy on me. Attending to some beauty maintenance today (no smart comments, thanks), I'm pictured in a pair of Lanvin leather and satin flats, and a dab or two of Ambre et Diamant Noir by Ambregris.
Redheads have been big in the news lately, with lots of coverage of ex-News Corp's Rebekah Brooks' spectacular mane. Australia is blessed with a redhead as Prime Minister - a member of the "ranga" tribe, as it's known locally, short for "orangutan", a red-haired primate from the jungles of Asia. These charming satin sandals by Nine West are channeling the ranga vibe in a lovely shade of orangutan against a red background, worn with the fabulous Ananas Fizz from L'Artisan Parfumeur.
Magnificent Manolo Blahnik Mary Janes in patent magenta (style is Mladari) on the mosaic floor at drinking establishment Rosati, accompanied by Caron's Nuit de Noel, an appropriate fragrance for mid-winter.
These Sergio Rossi slingbacks have been seen before in Kittie's travels, but are always worth a twirl. Featuring delicate tan leather trim, they are a tribute to good shoe design and are comfortable, as well as good-looking. They are worn with Mandarine by L'Artisan Parfumeur.
Cute Sergio Rossi beige suede pointy pumps with black heels and silver ring-pull detail, putting themselves up on a stool after a hard day down the mine. They are worn with the lovely Amouage Lyric Woman.
How the mighty have fallen! Heavenly Christian Louboutin honey-coloured Mary Janes with delicate stiletto heels are posed against a yellow dumpster in a Melbourne laneway, accompanied by Wolford fishnets and Hermes' Jardin sur le Nil. These really are very beautiful shoes. Timeless.
Louche black patent and lacquer slides by Gucci featuring the famous house horsebit - in silver - relaxing today, paired with a spritz of that great end-of-millennium fragrance Rush...which is, of course, by Gucci. A perfect match.
After a very enjoyable evening cocktrailing around the delightful micro-burb of West Melbourne, Kittie is encountering the legendary elephant in the room in a pair of Jimmy Choo slingbacks with reptile trim. This particular elephant hails from Jaipur, Rajasthan, and is part of a menagerie accumulated by my dear friend Barri Gottic, a former resident of Barcelona. The fuchsia tights are from Urban Outfitters, and the fragrance is L'Artisan Parfumeur's Timbuktu.
Deep brown Loula pumps on rather vibrant pub carpet in rural Victoria on a chilly evening. Pictured in the ladies' lounge of the local pub, they are paired with Premier Figuier Extreme by L'Artisan Parfumeur.
Perfect shoes for challenging times. No-name retro pumps with silk velvet bows from Italy heaving a deep sigh at the end of the working day, paired with the comforting fragrance Cedre, by Serge Lutens.
Cute. The dog wanted to get in on the shot, so how could Kittie refuse? Her footwear (paw-wear?) is also rather fabulous. In a Maynard G Krebs mood, Kittie is wearing a pair of gold ballet-style flats from Midas up against a very nice double bass, accompanied by Estee Lauder's Youth Dew Amber Nude.
Grrrrrr.. tributes to the animal world from the shoemeister: a great pair of Manolo Blahnik mules in animal-inspired silk, and gold heels, on a very beautiful rug that originally had something to do with camels (Kittie has forgotten the details). Worn with a fragrance big on animal magnetism, a rich chypre, Amouage Jubilation 25.
These Adolpho Dominguez spotty fabric shoes are fit for a flamenco session or two. Purchased during a delightful holiday in Spain some years ago, they are posed in a Melbourne laneway, enhanced with some Wolfords fishnets and a spritz or two of Chanel's No 5 Eau Premiere.
Very special star-spangled shoes that just beg to be worn on this particular day, toasting our American friends at Comme. They are by Parisian shoemaker Rodolphe Menudier, and are worn with another Parisian import, Parfums de Nicolai's New York (of course!)
Classic, fabulous, beige Bruno Magli lizard slingback peeptoes lounging and warming themselves up on a crispish Melbourne day, accompanied by L'Artisan Parfumeur's Ananas Fizz, a different type of crisp.
