We've spent the past few weeks tracking trends for next season including the ongoing quest for the Next Big Thing in shoes. OK, we're only half way there but we can categorically say that while stilettos and plat-heels are still going great guns, there's something else bubbling under. We're putting it down to the Michelle Obama effect and it's the timely return of the kitten heel. The lovely Alex at Rupert Sanderson pulled out some from her secret cupboard especially to show us at their press day - yes, they're that exclusive! After Christian Louboutin unveiled his first trainers last week and Jimmy Choo showed something suspiciously similar to an Ugg clog (but way more luxe obviously), it seems our poor insteps really are about to get some much needed R&R. How cute is this hot little number? We'd wear these with grey knit tights and a mini-shift, offset with bed-head hair and a smoky eye.
