To dye for!

Colour Studio 'Helena' shoes in cobalt blueColour Studio 'Helena' shoes in cobalt blue

Ok so I admit I could’ve picked a less trite title but sometimes a bit of cheese is appropriate – besides, when I explain what this post is about you’ll see that it was pretty much obligatory.

Last week The Colour Studio invited a group of bloggers to Hanover Square for an evening surrounded by shoes, champagne and canapés – I wasn’t going to decline was I? So we assembled at Dirty Martini to learn more about ‘colourology’ (essentially the art of matching colours) and to have a go at dying some shoes by hand.

I actually did fairly well on my first attempt, so much so that I got a bit over-confident and opted not to wear gloves for my next go…cue purple hands. Fun times but best left to the pros, who can create a pair of personally colour-matched shoes in just 2 weeks. I’m so grateful to The Colour Studio for giving me the shoes above (cobalt blue is my absolute favourite colour!). Aren’t they beautiful?
