A joy to be stocking such an amazing Spanish label. Pedro Garcia is authentic and well respected in the footwear industry renowned for the invention of the moulded cork and rubber sole to mimic the feeling of standing on sand. Every time we receive a new delivery the excitement is evident the comfort the design the edgy and modern designs just keep coming season after season and have us hooked and we know you will be hooked too.
“Brother and sister Mila and Pedro García are the third generation to lead this family shoe-making firm. Mila holds the CEO post, while Pedro is the brand’s creative director. They took over the reins from their father, the current company chairman, who is also named Pedro García, as was their grandfather, who founded the firm in 1925.”
Below a little paragraph from Pedro Garcia:
” I believe that for the Pedro Garcia project to have survived for three generations in the footwear industry we must have done something right. Im eternally grateful to my father for his ability to build a business out of nothing – a business that later I had the chance to carry on with and expand – and now I am grateful to my children for doing a good job. Without them, we would not have made it to where we are today to fulfil this lifelong dream of mine. That’s why I say I’m a sandwich generation and my thanks go both sides: My father, for his legacy; and my children, for having wanted to continue that legacy.”
‘Good Day Girl’, a made to fit; made to order fashion brand in Sydney, were taken on a shopping tour of Queen Street by personal stylist and fashion blogger Fifi Milne.
Rocking a classic ‘Good Day Girl’ white shirt, Fifi answered some styling questions along the way. You can check out the full tour and interview here at ‘Good Day Girl‘
So, how does Fifi feel about shoes?…
“Shoes maketh the outfit is my motto. My number one rule? Put on shoes before you decide what to wear. Even in the fitting room I make everyone try on shoes and then decide if the outfit is right. Because when do you go out in bare feet? Never!”
Fifi, we couldn’t agree more!

Walk this way with new collection heels from Diane von Furstenberg, DVF.
This season, the DVF summer collection makes us think cocktail bars, long warm nights and hot dates. The new collection celebrates a luxurious blend of glam golds, sultry lace, bold reds and geometric heels.
The ‘Berlin’ court is first on our wish list. On an 80mm heel this lusciously laced shoe is the meeting place for sexy and sophisticated. Wear ‘Berlin’ with a little black dress, crop tailored pants or a full midi-skirt.
Our next fave has to be the ‘Selah’ sandal! The criss-cross straps hug the foot insuring you feel secure and the 90mm block heel gives confidence to your stride! Wear ‘Selah’ with tailored black shorts, or a cocktail shift dress.
For the brave and the bold, we love the ‘Myriam’ heel in red suede. Not for the feint hearted, this stunning 100mm heel is confidence in a shoebox! Team ‘Myiram’ with a bold red lip for the ultimate effect!
Lastly, we have this little champagne number. It is ‘Berlin’ in gold snake. On an 80mm heel, ‘Berlin’ is the perfect way to lighten the mood. Wear with a little black dress, pop the champagne and dance the night away !

In the Press this month is this beautiful story of Repetto as seen in the current issue of ‘The Collective’ magazine.
” Standing in front of the Repetto store at 22, Rue de la Paix in Paris’ Opera district, it’s hard not to feel like a child again. Depending on the timing of your visit, you might find yourself staring into a sparkling winter forest, complete with falling snowflakes, or at tiny ballerinas twirling inside oversized music boxes. Or perhaps colourful painted dancers or hundreds of pointe shoes hanging like pieces of art.
Whatever you find, you’re guaranteed to see something charmed, which is exactly what CEO Jean-Marc Gaucher has sought to create.
From its beginnings in 1947, the renowned ballet brand has always been about fulfilling dreams. It was in the aftermath of World War II that founder Rose Repetto created the first pair of ballet shoes for her son, renowned choreographer Roland Petit, who was sick of bleeding toes and sore feet from dancing all day “
