Ever get so obsessed with a pair of shoes that you memorise the item code? Meet French Sole’s AN52 – the King Bulldog Opera Slipper:

These were specially made for London Fashion Week, and as soon as I saw them I fell in love. I love dogs and I love black suede slipper shoes – I practically lived in a pair of studded ones from Topshop two summers ago! However, at £190 I wasn’t in a rush to purchase them, thinking I could wait for a discount code or something similar… Until I realised they were sold out in my size online. So I contacted FS to ask about restocking and was told… NO RESTOCKING!

I was confused – hurt, despondent, depressed… Obsessed. I stalked the page hoping for a return in my size, until eventually I gave up. For about a day. After that, I called customer services to check – one more time – and although they had none in the warehouse, the wonderful person on the other end of the line offered to ring around for me and eventually tracked them down on King’s Road!

From there, they offered to post them out, and the rest, as they say, is history. Personally, I think these are a great alternative to the much-loved Charlotte Olympia kitty flats – which are adorable, but I’ve always been more of a dog person!

As these are my current favourite shoes, I had to pair them with my current favourite bag – the exotic flame tweed large Lily from Mulberry.

Can’t get enough of this bag, it’s truly my favourite and gets a lot of use!I thought the orange and black would be limiting at first, but it actually fits in pretty well with the rest of my wardrobe.

You can find the Bulldog slippers online in limited sizes at French Sole’s site here. The tweed Lily may still be in stock in some of Mulberry’s outlet stores – you can find a list here.

    Hi – I know it’s a long shot, but if you’re ever interested in selling your Mulberry (exotic Tweed), please keep me in mind.
    I had the Alexa showpiece and it was destroyed my Mulberry, as they couldn’t fix it 😦 And I’ve been looking for a replacement ever since…

      That’s awful! How upsetting! I don’t have any plans to sell it, but you should check npnbags.co.uk as I’ve seen a couple go up there!
