There are very few things that please me as much as shoes and cheese, I’m also occasionally partial to a glass of wine. So when an invite from Hotter Shoes arrived in my inbox for a wine and cheese night and a preview of their new collection I jumped at the chance!
Long term readers will know that I feature Hotter shoes quite a lot on here. I love comfy shoes that keep my feet happy all day, while still looking lovely and going with my huge dress collection. Hotter always deliver with their comfortable, flattering collection. I’m always really excited when they launch their new ranges and I can begin to plan future outfits around their lovely shoes.
So on a wet and windy Spring evening a few months ago, I headed to Borough Market for the event which was being hosted in The Neal’s Yard Dairy shop.
It was lovely catching up with all the lovely people from Hotter and Wingfield PR who I have met at previous Hotter events. They are such a lovely company to work with and I love how creative they are with their blogger events. Last year they organised a Lindy Hop class which was so much fun!
We had a look at some of the new styles and got a sneak peak at their Autumn/Winter lookbooks. I always love seeing their shoes in deeper colours, as someone who never really wears black, the purple, navy and maroon tones always really appeal to me.
As well as the shoes, I was really taken with the coordinating accessories including, scarfs, bags and some stunning fur stoles which will be absolutely perfect when the weather gets cold.
Once we’d all had a catch up and and looked at the lovely shoes and accessories it was time to indulge in some wine and cheese. we were given a really interesting talk on all the cheeses and tried them all with the complicating wines. I found it all really interesting and everything was picked really well.
I was sure to make a note of my favourite cheeses and have since popped into the shop to pick up a couple of the ones I enjoyed. As for the shoes I had to wait a little longer, but keep your eyes peeled as the lovely new stock will be arriving on the Hotter website really soon.
Here are a few of my vintage inspired highlights from the collection. I’ll be sharing some more of the styles very soon. Some of these are already up online and the rest will be landing in the next few weeks. I love all the new colours in the Donna style, I’m planning to add the purple to my collection.

I went into my local branch of Hotter earlier this week and the staff were rubbish and unhelpful again – if I hand something back and explain it’s too narrow they never offer the wider fitting, and I hate to feel I’m putting them out so I end up leaving empty handed! I haven’t bought anything from them in so long because the customer service in the Bath branch is so poor. It’s a shame, because they do nice shoes and I used to wear them religiously. The patents are very nice in the ones you’ve shown.

Ah that cheese shop is something special! We need to go back soon! I am loving the richness of the darker colours – such a wonderful alternative to black! You know how much I love my black! x
