Hi my lovelies, hope you are doing all well.
I want to share with you my experience, I was invited yesterday to an exclusive breakfast preview of Courtney Smith x Buffalo Shoe Lab collection. For my non Irish followers let me introduce you Courtney Smith. She works as a stylist, creative director, writer, presenter you name it. Courtney is referred to by the media as a style influencer. She has collaborated with international brands such as H&M and DKNY. She has also been selected as one of the Top 20 International Styling talents in Vivays Publishing's hardback "Contemporary Fashion Stylist"s which is available worldwide.

Therefore you can imagine I was very excited to meet her in person and see her style collaboration with Buffalo Shoe Lab Store. Now lets talk little bit about Buffalo Shoe Lab Store, is a unique boutique footwear, is situated in Dublin on Exchequer Street. I love this store as it has everything, many smaller niche brands are given the chance to flourish as well as designing their own footwear. Courtney was working with designer Audrey Murray she is as well Shoe Lab's head buyer. It was very exciting to listen their stories. I had lots of questions, and Courtney with Audrey were so kind to answer all of them. It was interesting to hear how they have visited in Spain shoe factories, how they choose the fabric working on the shoe details. It was as well very interesting when Courtney said that the whole boots inspiration draws from iconic musicians and their love for vintage styles and the rock n roll. Each pair of boots has name after an icon like Stevie boots which was inspired by Stevie Nicks, Not to mention the over the knee Kate (I call them the killer shoes they are amazing) which was inspired by Kate Bush. If you ask me which is my favorite I still don't know as they are all unique, and beautiful and not to mention how comfortable they are. What I really like that Courtney was very passionate and you could feel that when she was speaking about her journey with Audrey. It was truly very nice experience and I really want to say thank you to Fiona Donnellan who has invited me.
I definitely know what I want for Xmas, so do not wait and go and check them out, you would truly love each pair. Prices for the Courtney Smith X Shoe Lab collection start at 155 EUR and is available online at Buffalo Shoe Lab (buffalo-boots) and Shoe Lab stores or in Arnotts from November 10th. Happy shopping and do let me know which pair is your favorite.
Also would like to say it's always nice to meet other bloggers I had the opportunity to meet beautiful Kassi again, I love her blog check her out (justkassi) she is beautiful and very inspiring. It was great to see you Kassi and hope to meet you soon not in a year time again.

I believe that what you wear tells a lot about your personality. Fashion are clothes, but style is what you do with it.
