It has come to my attention the rise of the block heel. More sophisticated than flats, more comfortable than high heels and more sturdy than kitten heels, these chunky, mid-height heels have returned from the 60s with a modern makeover. Adding height inconspicuously, block heels are the perfect companions for your favourite wardrobe choices.

I’m also thrilled  to see Italian shoe powerhouse Bruno Magli making a comeback. The label has been around since the 30s and I’ve always loved scouring for their shoes at op shops and on eBay. I kid you not, I used to wear a pair of Bruno Magli block heels to work as a vet! They were brown with a grosgrain bow. Vintage, of course.

What shoes do you wear to work? What do you think of block heels?
