Bucketfeet Chinoiserie Chic lace up

I’m so proud to announce that I’m a new Bucketfeet artist in their November (2016) collection. My design ‘Chinoiserie Chic’ has made it to the final stage and is turned into a very cool lace up shoe.

I love their description: “Vibrant imagery depicting peonies, gingko leaves and gliding birds, spread across this lace-up, making the “Chinoiserie Chic” the ideal fall shoe.”

Have a look at them. Aren’t they lovely?

This is the design for the shoes:

I received them very, very quickly, over the weekend. I was amazed, since they came all the way from the United States and normally it would take a week or so.

Here’s me wearing them proudly, with my sweet dog Fender. He doesn’t seem to be that impressed though…

And they come in a red shoebox. How cool is that?
