hello lovely people


Well in Brighton, UK, we are finally experiencing some summer time sunshine.


Its making us all feel like we're on holiday, especially as our offices are right next to the beach. We can hear the seagulls outside the window squawking in the blue sky.


So nice to be able to wear some pretty Poetic Licence sandals, so much so we're looking at designs for next summer, SS14. I came across this gorgeous vintage fabric, and it is getting us in the mood for new shoes!

Hope it's nice weather where you are

So we are well into January 2012 and a little retail therapy always helps on these short winter days.

Second hand or charity shop bargains can be very rewarding and you can find some beautiful vintage gems if you take the time to look. Just today I bought this beautiful satin rose patterned 60's scarf. I love the colours and the era its evokes. So gorgeous I might frame it and the colours will look great in our SS13 collection!


Happy bargain hunting

Happy Friday to you all!


We hope you are enjoying the season and all its festivities! This time of year always brings a few parties to attend, and a lovely outfit to plan.


Here are a few more delights from the Poetic Licence box, that are perfect to add a little bit of glitz and glam to any outfit!





Hello my lovelies


So we are getting all festive in the Poetic Licence design office,

especially when we look at our festive shoe treats, look at the

lovely Royal Occasion,they would glam up any outfit and make

you sparkle like any Poetic girl should!

Hello Poetic Licence lovelies


I just had to post this picture up!


Whilst doing the rounds of the vintage stores and charity shops of my local seaside town, I found a super treat. A cream wicker chair, with metallic gold weathering and a lovely floral padded seat. It needs a little repair and is not a Lloyd Loom, but at £5 you can't go wrong.


I also keep thinking the gold and cream wicker mixed with pink florals would be lovely used on a shoe, so watch this space!

Hello my lovely's!

On a recent trip up north to the quaint British seaside town Tynemouth in Northumbria, I found some treasures in the flea market!

I just couldn't leave these beauties behind!

Three original 1950's enamel metal brooches all in perfecto condition!

Super and so very Poetic!!!

hello lovely Poetic Peeps


Its always an exciting day here in the design room, when you receive a Poetic Licence shoe box containing a pair of your staff samples. Shoes you have designed, worked on and loved nearly a year previously finally arrive on your feet. Happy days. Here are my Sweet Shirley Temple (known as Cherry Twist here in the UK),

Hello lovely people! So a lot has happened at Poetic HQ since our last entry, we've been so busy we haven’t had time to update our diary, naughty us!


Our little fingers have been working very hard on designing the delights for Spring/Summer 12. New glorious sandals are a must plus some yummy wedges, canvas shoes, and some lovely new heels! We have had fun rummaging through all the pretty fabrics and materials we have gathered on our trips, there are some glorious little gems in there.


We hope you have loved our new Spring/Summer 11 shoes online and in store, and if you have bought some we love seeing pictures of you wearing them. Do post them up on the website in the Fan club section.


We wish you a very Happy Easter and super Royal Wedding; we will be wearing our Poetic Licence heels to a street party here in Brighton, UK, with lots of jelly and cake we hope! smiley

So 2011 is in full swing here at Poetic Licence towers! Many of our Spring/Summer styles have landed in stores worldwide, hopefully in a shop near you. It’s so exciting to see them as apart from anything else it means it means spring is on its way, yay!


Jewelled Expression is a jazzy little number, with great colour combos and a glorious sparkly stone set trim. Try a turquoise and lime green mix for a hot colour combo this season.


Summer Bloom has a great twist with two sided colour detail on each half of the shoe. So red suede on the outside and red floral fabric on the inside, with a two tone Perspex heel and a beautiful stone set flower, what more could you want in a summer shoe.


We also have some fruit inspired styles which is another big trend for Spring; try Apple Pie in a polka dot canvas topped off with a sparkly apple wooden button, yummy.


The design ladies are jetting off on some foreign travels over the next few weeks. Believe it or not SS12 is around the corner and we will be gaining lots of new inspiration, watch this space.

Well here we are at the end of another year! Christmas is just around the corner and we are all excited here at Poetic Licence about all the new shoes for 2011!

Spring/Summer will be hitting the stores any moment now! You lucky gals can expect to find some super new styles.

Look out for a fruity theme, pearlized and patent leathers, woven and floral fabric’s. Some high and low heels, perpex heels filled with satin roses, wooden clogs, wonderful wedges and 70’s style platforms.

A new exciting addition to the range is the sporty collection. We have some fabulous vulcanized canvas styles in floral prints with chiffon flowers and satin ribbon laces.

We are also excited to introduce some new flat sandals with added padding in the foot-bed to keep your feet looking pretty, comfortable and happy this summer!

We hope you have a wonderful Christmas and that Santa leaves you a Poetic Licence parcel under the tree this year!!
