What Frankie Did Next - Summer 2016 Collection


During a weekend visit to London over the summer, when Scott and I had a wonderful night's stay at Devonshire Club, we whiled away our Sunday morning with a trip to Old Spitalfields Market. Located in Horner Square for the last 350 years, Old Spitalfields Market is like the very best Aladdin's cave you can possibly imagine! Providing shoppers with an eclectic mix of unique stalls, offering art and craft to fashion and food, from all across the globe. Like a moth to a flame, I couldn't resist stopping by to admire the many treasures on offer!

Well, it's safe to say, I soon found myself in shoe heaven when I spotted What Frankie Did Next. A beautiful collection of hand-crafted, customised pom pom sandals sold on Etsy and ASOS, as well as in Old Spitalfields Market of course! What Frankie Did Next is a UK brand, founded earlier this year by a former fashion buyer. Whilst chatting to Frankie, I found out that all of the pompoms and hand-crafted charms are ethically sourced and the packaging is environmentally friendly too. The buttery soft Italian leather sandals come in tan or black buffalo, and there are 7 different colour designs (for the pompoms and charms) to choose from. Each look has been inspired by travels around the world; from as close as England, to as far as Tokyo!

Scott and I were on our way to Dinerama for lunch that day, so we didn't stop for as long as I'd have liked, so I was keen to connect with What Frankie Did Next on Instagram, so I could keep up with her shoe collection there! A few weeks past by, and whilst scrolling through my Instagram feed one day, I noticed What Frankie Did Next had launched a competition to win a pair of sandals. I excitedly entered, and, couldn't quite believe it when I received the news that I had won! One very happy lady!

Fortunately, my gorgeous sandals arrived in time for our recent summer holiday. I couldn't wait to show them off on our trip, so we soon whipped out the camera and took some pictures in the sunshine! I was kindly given the option to choose which colour way I would like, so I opted for the exotic Tokyo Garden. However, as I was so torn between those, Miami and Santorini, I ended up purchasing two Pom Packs so that I could switch up the looks whilst we were away.

Here they are in action, starting off with the beautiful Tokyo Garden sandals...

The delicate gold charms sparkle and shimmer as you walk and the sandals are so comfy to wear.

Next look - the fun and fabulous Miami sandals...

I absolutely love pastel colours, so these cute sandals were right up my street!

Last but not least, Santorini! Perfect for sun soaked days!

I would like to say a huge thank you to What Frankie Did Next for my wonderful pair of sandals I won in her recent competition. They are real showstoppers and an absolute must have for any summer holiday. Fancy a pair? Check out What Frankie Did Next on Etsy or ASOS and you too could be treating your feet to some gorgeous new footwear in time for your next sunny holiday.
