New Shoes!

How wonderful to be enjoying the Spring sunshine! And what better excuse do we need to don our summer shoes. Now if you're anything like me there's a bit of work to be done before you can reveal your winter-white tootsies. But isn't it a pleasure to pamper our hard working feet with pretty nail varnish and a bit of sunshine?

I've included a wee photo of Therapy's summer shoe selection so that you can get an idea of which styles might be a perfect addition to your wardrobe this season. The great thing about our shoes...well, there are several great things!

Firstly they're all comfortable
I don't know about you but the older I get, the less I can tolerate sore feet! I have lots of gorgeous shoes lurking at the bottom of my wardrobe. I open up the boxes and look longingly at them, but I put them back and put on my trusty La Badias or Toni Pons esapdrilles.

Secondly they're pretty! I can flit about all day in the shop and still look and feel good. I know that hundreds of you will agree with me that wearing our La Badia pumps is like wearing our favourite slippers. But when those slippers are suede and the prettiest pink or blue or gold then why would we wear anything else?!

But sometimes we have somewhere special to go, or we feel like glamming up our jeans with a bit of a heel. And then our Toni Pons espadrilles are our new best friend. I'm a country girl now and I realised long ago (after many a mishap in my unsuitable city footwear) that wedges are best. So much grass, so many uneven surfaces - nothing is as stable as a wedge - in whatever height you like best. My favourites are the ankle strap, mid heel ones. I have them in loads of colours (but still not enough!) But our peep toe, high wedge court shoe is hugely popular. They elongate your legs, support your feet and look great with dresses and skinny jeans. Sigh.

Yes I miss having our shoe shop. I was devastated when we had to close it, and I still dream about my favourite shoes! But commercially it makes sense to sell our two best selling brands in with our clothes. We sell more shoes this way than we did in our shoe shop! 

So I'm happy to edit our selection knowing that I'm providing the best offer for you, dear ladies. And I'm sure you'll all agree with me that there's not much better in life than a pair of new shoes.

Oh I nearly forgot! We have a cobbler coming to town! They're opening soon by the carpark, where the greengrocers was. I'll be first in the queue to spruce up my favourite shoes.

A Very Happy Easter To All You Therapy Bunnies!

Happy Easter Ladies! 
Bess looks as if she'd love to devour the chicken & the chocolate eggs. But in fact Chris is crouching behind the camera with some Gravy Bones! Which inspired me to share with you one of my favourite sayings: "Fake it til you make it". 
There's many a time when I need to be at the top of my game but I'd much rather stay in bed. (Chance would be a fine thing!) So instead I do my hair, put on my makeup & my favourite clothes and smile. It's amazing how quickly my mood catches up with my outward appearance. 

Now many of you have been bemoaning your winter bodies - reluctant to expose any pale, untoned skin and feeling that the lighter colours of the Spring collections give you nowhere to hide. But don't despair, there are plenty of ways to enjoy the new season's clothes. A bit of fakery can go a long way! 

As you can see in the photo below, I've layered a pair of our Amazing Woman jeans & a fab Part Two linen knit top with a cute Luca Vanucci linen dress. (Actually, I got the idea from a customer- thank you!) I think it's a brilliant way to extend the life of our summer wardrobe and be able to cheer ourselves with Spring colours even when the skies are grey.

I took this photo for our website "outfit of the month". I just love this denim blue in a shoe. It seems to go with every colour & it's so cheery! I'll be posting the full range of the new Toni Pons espadrilles on our website, so take a look then come in and try them - yum! 

It's Good Friday as I type this and the day is typically driech. But in Therapy it's warm and everything looks so pretty and Springlike. I hope you'll join us tomorrow and Easter Monday for a wee glass of fizz & some of those chocolate eggs. If you don't then I'll end up eating them all myself! 

Wishing you all a happy & relaxing Easter weekend. 
Love, Laura x
